Libraries, classrooms, and student housing make universities the perfect environment for a bed bug outbreak. Between the massive numbers of students, close living quarters, and affinity for second-hand furniture, a bed bug infestation at a university could become widespread very quickly.
Many universities are developing official policies and action plans associated with what they fear is an impending bed bug pandemic. Treatments are complicated due to the potential size of infested areas and inability to put rooms or buildings out of service during the academic year. Making matters worse, concerns over chemical-sensitive students make traditional chemical treatment options impractical.
An effective solution requires maximum capacity, minimal down time, and no harmful chemicals. The Quest Hydronic Heat System offers the ability to treat larger areas than competing systems, while our Electric Heat System is ideal for individual dorm rooms and hard-to-reach applications.
