The bed bug problem is accelerating at an alarming rate. Bed bugs are attacking homes, apartments, dorms, hotels, stores, theaters, airplanes, and virtually every other venue where people congregate. This growing problem is here to stay and has many experts worried. According to Michael Potter, professor of entomology at the University of Kentucky, “This is going to be one of the most serious pest issues of our generation.”
Bed bugs have become increasingly resistant to chemicals. Thus, many eradication efforts require multiple treatments and ultimately prove fruitless. By using heat, which has been repeatedly proven to kill bed bugs and their eggs in all developmental stages, Quest has developed a system that is quick, effective, and profitable for the Pest Management Professional.
