Bed bugs are something that is found causing havoc in homes, hotels, guest rooms, personal items, and luggage. One easy way of getting rid of this unwanted pest is by heat treatment. But there are people who doubt whether heat treatment actually works.

Bed bugs feed on blood. Therefore, it’s important to get rid of such infestations as quickly as possible. It’s worth remembering that bed bugs are a sensitive case too, therefore, traditional methods may fail to get rid of it properly. One must try heat treatment because according to several people, it works on eradicating bed bugs.
There are four ways of going about it that will make sure that the bugs die and those are a hot box, steaming, dryers and home heat treatment. What you can do is fetch a box and heat it then put the items that are infested by bugs into the box. If the box is hot enough, then the bugs will die.
But while heating the box, it’s important to remember not to heat up the items so much so that they are damaged. Use of steam is labor intensive because you will have to be deft enough to handle the steam in a way that it penetrates into every nook and corner where the bed bugs are possibly hiding.
For clothes infested with bed bugs, use hot soapy water then dry it with clothes dryers which will kill the bugs. On the other hand, if you are dealing with a large scale infestations, you can try heating the rooms to a temperature that are lethal for the bed bugs. Heat treatments are pretty effective in getting rid of infestations.

How It Works
This process involves drilling a hole in the product so that a probe can be inserted.
Even though treatment is only for 30 minutes, it can take quite a few hours to reach the core temperature. This could possibly cause the product to crack, although we attempt to reduce this chance by bringing goods to temperature slowly.

How It Works
Moist heat treatment is a heat process similar to dry heat but involves the adding of a minimum of 50% humidity.
The moisture generated from the heat treatment penetrates the product and due to the temperature kills the pest.
Some time may be required after moist treatment for dry treatment to be done to ensure the product does not go moldy.
