Pest Heat TPE-500 Propane Heat System
Discover the power of the Pest Heat TPE-500 Propane Heat System, a leading solution in pest control that provides consistent, widespread heat across any structure. Utilizing high air movement, this system elevates the internal temperature between 121 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, holding for three hours to ensure penetration into the most inaccessible spaces. This method is proven effective in eliminating bed bugs’ entire life cycle, including eggs. Real-time temperature monitoring and recording is made possible by the TEGAM system, strategically placing sensors throughout the room. Our heat treatment offers a safe, chemical-free, eco-friendly alternative for insect eradication, without environmental harm. The Pest Heat Heater not only targets bed bugs but also eradicates fleas, ticks, termites, spiders, roaches, and most other insects, making it an efficient all-round pest control solution.
As the industry leans away from chemical treatments, heat therapy for termite eradication is gaining traction, particularly on the West Coast and the Hawaiian Islands. The Pest Heat TPE-500 Propane Heat System, a trusted tool in the fight against Dry Wood Termites and Formosan Termites, is increasingly favored for its superior heat penetration in structures. This approach is particularly efficient against the 45 species of termites found in the US, with Dry Wood and Formosan Termites being the most common targets.
Recognized as the pioneering and most replicated single-phase, direct-drive propane bed bug heater, the Pest Heat TPE-500 delivers 500,000 BTUs per hour, hitting target kill temperatures between 121 F to 140 F in large areas up to 2,500 square feet.
With its wide applications, the TPE-500 is trusted by pest control providers, property managers, and institutions including hotels, universities, camps, food processing plants, grain storage facilities, the pallet industry, and military bases. This professional-grade system is the go-to solution for companies specializing in bed bug heat extermination, providing effective treatments for residences, warehouses, hotels, apartments, and more.
