Bedbugs have lethal temperature limits greater than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. At that point, all stages of the life cycle are killed. Targeted temperatures in the range of lethal temperatures are required to completely eradicate bed bug populations. The range of lethal temperatures (minimum and maximum temperatures) is carefully controlled so that heated space or its contents are not damaged. A list of items to be removed prior to heat start-up is provided.
Treatment time is an important factor for effectiveness of treating bed bug infestations with heat. Treatment time is dictated by various factors such as clutter, structure, layout of the space, severity of infestations, and air flow management. Adults are generally most susceptible with eggs being most tolerant. Treatment time minimums ensure heat penetration reaches all places where bed bugs can take refuge. Holding lethal temperatures for a longer time will be more effective than shorter treatment times and is a function of the factors mentioned above.
How They Die
Heat kills by dehydration or drying out the bed bugs. The high heat love you MIDI atmosphere causes the insect to desiccate and die due to lack of moisture. please note when temperatures exceed 115 degrees Fahrenheit, humidity becomes less of a concern.
