WHY HEAT? WHY AT ONCE?
In 2010 research done at the university of Kentucky and additional research done at the university of Minnesota showed that temperatures of 122ºF and above killed all life stages of bed bugs. That means eggs die too! We usually achieve temperatures of around 135ºF. At 135ºF we can kill the bed bugs with out destroying electrical devices since internal temperatures of most electrical devises, when in operation, can reach 160ºF.
Are all heat treatments really the same? Basically yes, the only thing that varies is the price.
There are 2 important aspects of thermal remediation - temperature, and circulation. If temperatures of 125ºF or more are reached and the hot air is circulated properly, so that all surfaces are heated evenly, for at least 3 hours or more, you will achieve 100 mortality in one application.

Some Tips for Bedbug Treatment
Although an adult bedbug can go a year without eating, bed bugs usually feed once every 10 days which means they are not out and about much and therefore have limited opportunity to come in contact with treated areas.
A clean home will make treatments more effective, but will not prevent bedbugs. If you travel or have overnight guests, inspect all luggage entering your home. Also put all clothing in suit cases in the dryer at high heat for at least 20 minutes. If you live in a town home you may want to ask neighbors if they are experiencing a problem. Bed bugs are consistently migrating and in older neighborhoods they can easily find their way into adjoining homes.
