Washington, D.C.’s bed bug problem is on the rise. Environmental Heat Solutions has stepped in with the solution.
Purcellville, VA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/25/2014 --Washington, D.C., and the surrounding area have ranked again as one of the most bed bug infested cities in the United States. In 2012, Washington, D.C., was ranked the sixth most infested city in the country, marking its steady advancement in the wrong direction; a previous study ranked the city at number eight. Environmental Heat Solutions is the company many D.C. residents turn to when faced with an infestation.
“Bed bugs can destroy a family’s sense of well-being for months,” said a representative from Environmental Health Solutions. The psychological effects of bed bugs are considered to be the most damaging aspect of an infestation. Victims of bed bugs suffering from pre-existing mental illnesses report their symptoms are often exacerbated by the infestation. Acute stress, anxiety, and depression are all common when a person feeling getting rid of bed bugs is impossible.
The problem can become even worse than that. “Suicide as a result of a bed bug infestation is unfortunately not unheard of,” says Environmental Heat Solutions’ representative. “People feel hopeless, like their home is no longer their own. They panic, and feel they can never escape from the often unseen infestation.” Environmental Heat Solutions doesn’t use the traditional method of pesticides to eliminate bed bugs. “Bed bugs today are resistant to chemicals,” said the representative. “Pesticides can’t be relied upon to take out an infestation. That’s why we use bed bug heat treatment.”
Bed bug adults, larva, and eggs are destroyed when the temperature reaches 120 degrees. The heat treatments offered by Environmental Heat Solutions are non-toxic to humans. “After a heat treatment, a family can go back into their home right away,” says the representative. “Our methods are more effective and safer for humans than pesticides. They’re also better for the environment.”
