Bed bug removal

Recommended Posts

In Europe at the moment, a small bed bug problem.

Some say you can remove them with heat, getting the room very hot. I could do this with gas fire and electric heaters, though my circuits blow if I use too much electricity. 

 

Anyone done this or have any practical, useful solutions?

Thanks

Companies will do it for you professionally but cost 5000 Dollars to do it for one normal sized house in America. 

 

Don't forget to take the cat with you.

Bed bugs do love warmth heat will not kill them get a pest control in and get it sprayed. 

The bugs are not just in the bed as the name says they also will hide and breed

on any fabric, carpets and clothes and so on.

They don't spray bed bugs.  They cook them.

No you are wrong bedbugs do not just live in beds, yes it is a good idea to buy a new

mattress but they also live in any fabric like carpets or clothes.

Not good enough.

 

And no, Stadtler has never been an exterminator. 

 

The bedbugs are in your clothes, they are everywhere.

Had some in the house here in USA some years back.  The outbreak was in the bedroom of a Thai nephew who was in ESL classes with a bunch of other kids at high school from all over...  Cost me about $3,000 USD and a whole lot of heartache to get rid of the critters. We had to turn the house upside down.  Nasty.

I read about heat treatment, getting the room to a very high temperature, and this killing them, we are thinking of using a gas heater. Just wondered if anyone else did this themselves without professional help.


Thanks

  In order to kill bedbugs and their eggs in a room by using heat, you would have to maintain a total interior temperature of 120 degrees F+ for 3 hours. To totally eradicate bedbugs, the heat in the room must be at least 140 degrees F to permeate into everywhere that bedbugs can hide such as cracks, crevices in floors, walls, etc. and takes even longer. It's not something that can be accomplished by do-it-yourself heating equipment.
