Bed bugs. Arguably a worthy opponent of any pest controller and an undeniable nightmare for facilities managers in the hospitality sector. Some 15% of hospitality businesses say they have spent over $5,000 per year controlling or preventing bed bugs in the past two years. To combat this, Rentokil has developed a non-toxic heat treatment solution effective against bed bugs and insect pests at every stage of the lifecycle – all in a single treatment.
Highly effective against bed bugs and insects such as textile pests and cockroaches, heat treatments reach all areas of an infestation without damage to fixtures such as furniture and fabrics. The mobile heat treatment system delivers dry, targeted heat to treat infestations without the use of chemicals and is highly suited for businesses such as hotels, guest houses, care homes and domestic properties.
Rentokil’s Entotherm is more effective in eliminating bed bugs and other insect pests compared to conventional treatments. With increasing regulation around the use of pesticides, heat treatment is fast becoming the go-to solution for businesses in the hospitality sector.

Pest control heat treatments, when conducted by trained professionals using appropriate equipment, can be safe and effective in eliminating pests. However, it is important to follow proper safety protocols and precautions to minimise any potential risks.
Insect pests should be exposed to a temperature between 56°C and 60°C. This temperature must be applied until all life stages of the target insect are killed. The time necessary will depend on the species of insect concerned.
By desiccation - it dries them out. Additionally, essential proteins in the body, such as enzymes are denatured and destroyed.
Rentokil's Entotherm heat treatment is usually employed to exterminate bed bugs. However, any type of insect can be treated with heat: stored product pests, insect pests in food factories and mills, moths, wood-borers, and more.
