Presenting the chemical-free insect extermination Heat Treatment Method - THERMOKIL.
Thermokil Heat Treatment System for Wood, Furniture, Pallets, Lumber, Shipping Boxes by Hire Kill, a member of Atom Group. We're pioneers in the sector of non-chemical insect extermination with the introduction of the Heat Treatment system.
The Heat Treatment method includes the use of specialized mobile equipment that produces hot air (up to 56 0C ) and removes humidity so that all insects and their eggs/larvae die.
The method can be used in various buildings, such as food storerooms (e.g. rice, pasta, pulses etc), flour mills, silos, bakeries, breweries, food production factories etc…
Another important area of application is houses and other buildings that have wood-infesting insects such as the woodworm species (which can do serious damage). Insect extermination can also be done with this method on wooden beams (and any other wood used in construction), pallets, furniture etc.
Hire Kill, a member of Atom Group, is the only private company in Cyprus that possesses a license from the Ministry of Agriculture for providing Wood Thermal Treatment services as per ISPM15 international standard. (license no.CY-0002 DB HT)
The temperature is regulated by special sensors which are placed in various locations inside the wood (or area) to be treated. The sensors are connected to a computer for regulating the procedure and adjusting to the right temperature. With the finalization of the treatment, all insects die without the use of any chemicals. Besides protecting/exterminating wood against wood-infesting insects, the method is also ideal for food areas with a German cockroach infestation or other damaging insects.
