Three weeks ago I wrote about the article in PCT’s 2021 State of the Bed Bug Control Market, titled Sometimes Misidentified, Often Misunderstood. The article’s main graphic depicted a bed bug and a carpet beetle to show how other insects are are sometimes misidentified as bed bugs... especially by customers.
I’m sitting in our bedroom chatting with my wife, when, wouldn’t you know it less than a month after that blog, a bug walks across my area rug.
From where we sat, all I saw was an apple seed moving across the rug. I bent over and picked it up. Yup. A carpet beetle.
Heat kills everything, everywhere
When you treat a structure with GreenTech Heat equipment and technology, you benefit from one of heat’s greatest benefits: Heat is an indiscriminant killer.According to PCT, you also benefit with marketing differentiation: only 28% of pest control operators offer heat as an option.
GreenTech Heat Solutions manufactures, sells, and supports a variety of electric and propane/direct fired heat solutions and the comprehensive training to denature, disinfect, and kill all insects and microbes within a structure, including bacteria, viruses, mold, and mildew. These heat treatments can sanitize the HVAC ducts and equipment. Each Titan direct-fired heater can treat up to 5,000 square feet in an 8-hour shift, and can be combined with additional heaters to treat larger structures.
Regardless of the pest that really infests your customer’s location, a GreenTech Heat treatment will get the job done right, the first time. Accurate temperature measurement at the hardest-to-heat location will empirically verify the kill.
The GreenTech Heat thermal eradication process utilizes high-energy, high-pressure, convected air to kill insects. The competition’s heaters do not generate an aggressively-convected airstream to impart lethal heat into treatment areas. Convection allows GreenTech Heat equipment to address larger treatment areas or shorter treatment times. This is a photo of a client’s old propane bed bug heaters they scrapped and had us recycle when they replaced them with GreenTech Heat Titan propane heaters. Titan bed bug heaters are so much more efficient and powerful that one Titan 800 can get the job done in about the time of two of our competitor’s propane heaters. The Titan bed bug heater’s reliability is so great that it wasn’t worth our client keeping their old heaters in service.
