Yeah I think the pros crank the heat up to about 120 and let them bake in it.

Just crank the wood stove up. grin


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

No, they pump your whole house full of heat.

Diatomaceous earth, bed bug bag your mattress.
Sprays, powders, gotta go nuclear on them

Not going to get rid of them with the stuff you find at the hardware store. Heat requires special equipment, its not as simple as turning the furnace on high.

This is what we used when I owned a pest control company.

My son had them for a bit, I suggested he use a portable hand held steamer and go thru the room with it

Worked like a charm, just use it any where they will hide, mostly in carpets, any kind of deep cloth
until the area is steaming.

My Uncle had them. Pest company removed everything plastic and brought in giant heaters to heat the house for several hours. When complete, they found a few overlooked pieces of plastic that were melted. More than one treatment may be needed.


I will gladly feast on those who would subdue me.
