(1888PressRelease) April 28, 2010 - VENTURA, CA -- The bed bug epidemic in North America
continues to escalate, as does the national media coverage of the troublesome pests. ABC's
Nightline* is scheduled to air a segment on controlling bed bugs this Thursday, April 29.
Included in the segment will be what is considered by many as the most effective technology
available: ThermaPureHeat®. ThermaPureHeat is a patented**, green, non-pesticide pest control
technology. It utilizes clean, dry, odorless heat instead of chemicals to kill bed bugs, termites,
mold and bacteria while improving the indoor air quality of a structure.
ThermaPureHeat, which is also a registered technology with the California Environmental
Protection Agency (Department of Pesticide Regulation) has proven highly effective for
localized or area treatments, such as infestations confined to a single structure, a multi-family
unit or apartment complex, or in single or multiple hotel rooms.
"ThermaPureHeat is fast becoming the Integrated Pest Management method of choice, and the
only method that has been university and field tested and proven to be effective in killing bed
bugs and their eggs nearly always in a single treatment," says Dr. Michael Linford, one of the
world's top experts on bed bug control.
There are currently more than 40 ThermaPure licensees in the United States and Canada who
have performed many thousands of jobs to kill bed bugs with heat. Individuals wanting to obtain
additional information or to find a local ThermaPure licensee can log
"We have spent many years and millions of dollars refining this important green technology,
which has been awarded a number of U.S. patents1 including the use of heat for the eradication
of bed bugs," says David Hedman, CEO of ThermaPure.
