“The biggest advantage of heat is that it finds the bed
bugs and their eggs wherever they are hiding.
It penetrates layers of fabric, upholstered furniture,
boxes of household goods, and even mattresses
and bedding . . .  The heat finds them
and "cooks" them all at once."

– Pest Management Professional, November 23, 2009

About Us Short Image

“Heat is so effective that if everyone used it we would soon be out of business.”
-Sean Smith, Manager for Cimex Research

Cimex exterminates bed bugs using a heat extermination process. The infested space and surrounding walls are heated to a temperature above 125°F, killing all bed bugs and their eggs. Not only have pesticides become ineffective as bed bugs have developed resistance, but pesticides don’t work without direct contact on insects. Compare this to heat: Bed bugs cannot become resistant to it, and heat waves get everywhere.

Cimex uses specialized equipment that is customized to the needs of each space. Our heating tools are designed specifically to spread, control, and monitor heat - getting it into hard to reach spaces inside your walls and mattresses.

Cimex heat extermination is based on scientific research. For articles and much more, see our Everything You Never Wanted To Know About Bed Bugs Section.

Depending upon the size of your space, it will take between 8-12 hours to heat the premises. It will be necessary to vacate the space during this time.

At all times our Technicians will act with complete discretion.

When we arrive we will inspect the space to ensure that it has been properly prepared, (see our Preparing For Our Visit section)
and note any preexisting damage. We will ask you to sign a document permitting us to do the work which will also acknowledge the condition of the working space. We will move your furniture approximately 8” from the walls and place your mattresses, box springs and sofas on their sides. All dresser drawers, cabinets and closets will need to be opened. Our job is to ensure that the heat permeates everywhere possible.

All electronic equipment will be unplugged.

Our equipment will be brought into your home and set-up for maximum effect. Cimex Technicians will be moving the equipment
throughout the heating process. The space and the surrounding walls will be heated safely to a thermal death point over 125°F.
Cimex Technicians will climb to this temperature slowly for safety purposes and to maintain the temperature for a period of more
than four hours.

A Cimex Technician will be onsite at all times during the extermination process.

When the heating process is completed, the space will be carefully inspected. No pesticides or other chemicals whatsoever will
be used at any time. All furniture will be returned to its original place and your home will be left in the condition it was found before
our arrival. Upon completion, you will be asked to sign a form acknowledging our work and the condition of the space.  Payment will
be due at this time.

All bed bugs and their eggs will be exterminated in one visit. A return visit will not be required as long as bed bugs are not brought back into your home, or moving in from an adjacent, untreated space. If bed bugs and their eggs are not 100% exterminated, we will re-do the process, guaranteed.
