Entotherm heat treatment

Rentokil’s portable, chemical-free heat pod is a quick and effective treatment for all types of pest insects such as bed bugs, cockroaches and wood boring pests, eliminating them through the controlled, targeted application of heat.

Our Entotherm heat treatment kills all stages of an insect’s life cycle from egg to adult inside the pod, making it a fast-acting, safe, and cost effective way to manage pest infestations.

The chemical-free heat treatment reaches all areas of an infestation within the unique Rentokil-designed flexible pod, without any fabric or structural damage. It is well suited for a wide range of customers from care homes, hospitals, food processing facilities, hotels, bakeries and guest houses to residential properties.
Entotherm is also an ISPM15 certified treatment.

Servicing the Western Cape and Gauteng

We are currently only able to provide heat treatments in Johannesburg and Cape Town. If you're situated in any other part of South Africa, we can provide other treatments to get rid of pest insects.

Benefits of Rentokil’s Heat Pod

Only one treatment is needed, but follow-up insecticide treatments will be required to fully control an infestation.

Minimal disruption

Designed by Rentokil to be fuss-free set up on premises, the Entotherm Heat Pod offers the ease and convenience of on-site treatment, eliminating the risk of damage to items during transport.

Heat treatment via the Entotherm Heat Pod is effective against most types of pest insects associated with everyday items such as textiles, furniture and soft furnishing. This technique is ideal for use with items infested by bed bugs, cockroaches, stored product insects and textile pests.

Mini version

Rentokil offers a scaled down version of the Entotherm Heat Pod, allowing the system to fit comfortable in smaller, confined spaces.

The Mini Entotherm Heat Pod remains as effective in treating furniture, fabrics and soft furnishing – and is simply catered for use in compact areas such as bedrooms.

Flexible version

The adaptability of the Flexible Entotherm Heat Pod allows Rentokil to treat irregularly shaped items such as process equipment or bakery machinery which do not fit the standard parameters of the original Entotherm Heat Pod.

The chemical-free solution is well suited for a wide range of customers from care homes, hospitals, food processing facilities, hotels, bakeries and guest houses to residential properties.

How Entotherm Heat Pod system works

Rentokil uses a fully portable system - the flexi heat pod - to deliver dry transferable heat to a contained area.The Entotherm Heat pod works by heating up the space, and the infested objects that are placed within it, to 56°C - 60°C for a specified length of time.

At this temperature all insect life stages - eggs and larvae to adults - will die within one treatment. At 56°C the protein within the bodies of pest species such bed bugs and cockroaches is denatured, and the waxy layers on the outside of the insect are disrupted, causing dehydration and death.  

The treatment is also suitable for use against wood boring insects, moulds and pathogens.
Entotherm heat treatment is an effective, chemical free treatment exclusive to Rentokil Pest Control in South Africa.
