A lot of people ask us - Does heat really kill bed bugs? Yes it does. After about one minute at temperatures above 120F, bed bugs die! We put together this experiment to show you how effective heat can be in your fight to get rid of bed bugs.
We used a water bath to control the temperature and keep it as close as possible to 120F (this temperature was selected based on research from the University of Florida). The bed bugs are in a water tight vial that is held in the water bath. Heat from the water bath conducts into the vial and the heat treatment begins. After about one minute, the bed bugs stop moving. Heat really does kill bed bugs!
