If you want to kill bed bugs fast, heat treatment is a good option for you. A licensed pest control company can kill bed bugs in one day by Heat treatments. The infested room is heated between 135°F (57.2°C) to 145°F (62.7 °C).
Some experts believe the high temperature in the room kills bed bugs from their hiding spots. When the temperature reaches 122°F (50°C) bed bugs and their eggs immediately die. But, a successful heat treatment requires a highly skilled technician.
Mattress, furniture, drywall, and concrete are robust insulators. So, if the heater doesn’t make killing temperature the treatment will fail.
On the other hand, too much heat can destroy electronics and other sensitive items. This heat treatment will take about 8 hours to complete.
Although heat kills bed bugs quickly and efficiently, any live bed bug may hitchhike from another part of the house and begin the infestation again Unless a residual pesticide is applied in conjunction with the heat.
