The only treatment that kills all insects in one
treatment, is a tent fumigation. It is way too expensive to be used in apartments or condos. They
put tarps over the entire building and all attachments, such as decks. This treatment penetrates
the entire home and everything in it. It kills all
pests. It costs about $3.00 per square foot. Whole
home heat treatments fail about 25% of the time.
Our 3 time service is more effective than that, but
you must accept all 3 treatments and do your part.

items must reach and maintain 120 degrees. Do
not overstuff your drier. A full load of dry clothes
may take 60 minutes for all the items to reach 120
degrees. We can rent you a portable heat box for
$50.00 per day or a Heat Room big enough for
couches and mattresses for $400.00. Or we can sell
you a smaller heat box for $199.00 plus tax. Call for
