How To: Kill bed bugs with heat instead of poison

Kill bed bugs with heat instead of poison

Whole Structure Heating

Jeff White from explains the different methods of effectively killing bed bugs in your home with heat instead of poison.

The temperature of the air must be brought to 120 degrees Fahrenheit and maintained for 2 to 4 hours. The methods are as follows.

- Propane Power Heat, using a propane gas powered heater.

- Electric Power Heat, plugging the heaters into wall sockets, or a portable power generator brought by the company.

-Heating options might not be available in your area so check with the company before you make a decision.

-If the house is cluttered the heat/poison treatment will not be as effective because of the poor circulation for the air. Areas should be cleaned and clear of obstacles.
