Eliminating bed bugs from aircraft
Single-treatment aircraft bed bug eradication and viral disinfection that works
There is only one aircraft bed bug treatment disinsection for private airplanes, commercial aircraft, or military airplanes that will kill every bed bug and eliminate the entire infestation in one treatment— and sanitize the aircraft in the same treatment. Thermal aircraft insect eradication utilizes no toxic chemicals, and is both discreet and FAA compliant. The GreenTech Heat Solutions technology will maintain a temperature range that is 100% lethal to all life stages of microbes and bed bugs, and 100% safe to the plane, its furnishings, and contents. Treating aircraft with GreenTech Heat equipment is completed in hours, not weeks.

Other pest control methods such as steam, freezing, and chemicals can be used to treat bed bugs and kill insects, but they all present significant drawbacks or risks. Steam and freezing are both contact-based systems— if they do not touch the bugs they will survive. Chemicals require multiple applications over an extended period of time and present health concerns and allergy risks to passengers and crew. None of these other treatments will effectively sanitize the aircraft for viruses, allergens, and bacteria.
What People Say
Big differences when comparing GreenTech’s electric trailer with the competitor. The build quality is much better: non-slip flooring, soundproofing, electrical, lighting, shelving. No RUST. You get direct contact with the owner and his team. One man can operate the GreenTech Heat system. Push more BTUs faster, quicker treatments, and you can control the temperature easier. With the the trailer I own from the competitor you need 2 people working. That trailer is brand new and we dealt with rust so bad and a leaking roof. Trying to get warranty service from the competition was very hard.
It’s Bugs or Us
Treating an aircraft for bed bugs with heat other key benefits:
- There’s no need to remove soft goods such as cushions, carpet, and bedding for separate treatment
- Will not damage electronics or avionics
- You can return to your aircraft to service immediately following treatment
- There’s no need to clean cushions, carpets, and bedding for chemical residue after the treatment
- There’s no dangerous chemicals used or residues remaining following the treatment
- All stages of bed bugs will be killed— from eggs through adults
- Destroys all microbes— viruses, bacteria, allergens, molds
- Everything can be treated: cabin linings, cockpit, galley, and cargo areas
- Exceeds FAA guidelines for thermal aircraft disinsection
- It will kill any other insects or spiders in your aircraft
- It will minimize or eliminate odors from food, smoking, animals, urine, and bacteria

GreenTech Heat Solution’s state-of-the-art technology allows you to achieve a proven thermal kill for bed bugs. Our laboratory-tested and EPA-approved technology creates heat convection currents which transfer energy throughout the aircraft. Heated air molecules transfer their energy into every surface of the aircraft and cargo hold, allowing all the furnishings and contents of the aircraft to reach a minimum of 140°F. Developed and perfected by Michael R. Linford PhD, our equipment is designed to be a complete bed bug heat treatment system without sacrificing safety, quality, or capability. We understand that equipment alone will not achieve a 100% kill of your infestation. That’s why we include our Flash video training with every package and many of our packages include our Master Heat Technician Certification training program.
Every electric bed bug heater package includes shipping to the Contiguous USA and Canada.
Most people consider only the monetary component of a treatment’s cost. Inconvenience, collateral toxicity, time out of service, and length of treatment should all be considered when calculating a total cost. While a pesticidal treatment may be less expensive, the bed bugs will remain with you for several weeks to a month or more. Don’t forget that bed bugs can survive more than 500 days between meals and may be waiting for the perfect time to feed! The table above will help you identify some of the hidden considerations and costs of pesticidal treatments as compared with treating with GreenTech Heat equipment.
When you own the GreenTech Heat Solutions equipment, you are ready to treat aircraft for bed bugs at any time. GreenTech Heat needs only a single one-day treatment to kill each and every bed bug, nymph, and egg in an aircraft. GreenTech Heat electric heaters are digitally controlled, maintain close temperature tolerances, and are fire-safe. The GreenTech Heat Air Mover 4000 fans are temperature-tested in excess of maximum treatment temperatures and will not shut down during an aircraft bed bug treatment. These heaters are also completely fume, fumigant, and toxic chemical free, making them 100% safe for humans and aircraft, while being 100% lethal to bed bugs and other insects.
GreenTech Heat heaters and fans used in aircraft bed bug treatment come with our industry-exclusive two-year repair or replace warranty.
