0:26 There’s no way you’re standing in a room that is 137F degrees. 110F is
life threatening. Touching metal at 130F degrees is painful. Not believing
no, it could be 137. I worked in a restaurant that got up to 120. I know
some factories have furnaces that get very warm as well.
I just want to say that all of your videos are just excellent and extremely
helpful. I have bed bugs and the woman from the apartment complex office
wasn’t helpful enough. I called the pest control company they are using and
the only helpful person was the owner, who I got to talk to once. It’s
really hard to get my questions answered (and to know what questions to
ask), and your videos really help me understand so I can avoid doing “dumb”
When I do bedbug treatments the rooms will get up to 150F and i have videos
showing the temp gun read out
Marry me Jeff 🙂
i’m not sure marriage and bed bugs go together
Oh, they do 🙂 Marrying an exterminator is the best defence against
can you leave books
Or any relationship! Almost destroyed mine and i’m still trying to
re-establish the thing. All over BED BUGS! Jeff i sent you a novel via
email. I know you are busy, and you probably didn’t need the backstory, but
i needed to share certain aspects of the story and make a suggestion for
you. So i hope that you’ll save it for when you do have time to read
through it! Thanks, Jeff! –
Im a heat tech from so cal and 133 degrees is not good enough. 160 is great
for the job
actually that’s incorrect, 120 degrees has been scientifically proven at
the U. of Minnesota to be the short term death point for both bed bugs and
their eggs, if you achieve 130-140 and hold that for a set amount of time
it will penetrate furniture and is enough to properly eliminate bed bugs, I
could actually argue 160 is starting to push the limits where you start to
see damage issues with certain personal belongings in a home
how long does the heat treatment keep them away?
it doesn’t keep them away, the minute the heat is turned off and the
temperature goes below 100 the home could be infested again, it will only
kill what the heat gets to and has no residual qualities
Would it help to discard the carpet and furniture first before the heat
it may help but usually it’s completely unnecessary
Is it safe to keep your electronics (TV, computers, e.t.c.) in the house
while this is being done, or should you pack them up and remove them?
you should ask the company who is performing the heat treatment what they
recommend, with most heat treatments it shouldn’t affect the electronics
but it’s best to ask the company who’s performing the service
Halo, i wish to request for a sample of bedbug heat treatment machine,you
can send this to my email perhaps indicating the quotation,brochure and the
guarantee of the device,it has to be operating within 240 volts Kindly send
me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
My cable box overheats and malfunctions when the temp gets over 110
degrees. Similarly, I know that inverters for photovoltaic systems can only
get up to a temperature of 105 degrees before they begin to have problems.
So be careful with the electronic devices. Exposure to those temperatures
could cause issues.
Bless Jeff for keeping a positive tone of voice and good info while
sweating balls in a 135 degree fuckin room! Lmao oh my goddddddd D’: I’d be
PISSED like do we have to be in a heated room the WHOLE time?? Bed bugs r
so persistent I just am afraid this wont even work x(
hi jeff i would like to ask you some technical questions about this process.
can you keep and eye out for my email from pest brigade.
im in australia so the time differance makes comunication difficult.
thankyou . doug
I worked all day in 140° in Iraq, wearing 80lbs of gear, pants tucked in
boots, and long sleeves. To say it’s impossible is absurd. Thanks for the
video Jeff, I caught these bastards early and I’m doing everything. DE,
bought a hammock, vacuuming, steaming, residual sprays. Time to rent a
heavy duty space heater too.
For those who the heat treatment failed: You have to be honest- did you
actually separate everything apart, and use fans so heat could get to
everything? I bet is you kept the mattress on the box string, cushions on
the couches, and the closet doors, cabinet doors and drawers all shut- so
the heat could not quickly saturate the area. Remember that heat would get
to the basement last.
