Heat Method 1: Heating up the room.
Temperatures above 117 degrees Fahrenheit are lethal to bed bugs, so many people opt for heat treatment of an entire infested room, or even bed bug treatment using heat for the entire home. However, a heat treatment for bed bugs of such a large scale takes time to reach the proper temperature, and by then the bed bugs can escape through under electric outlets, or even simply the door and other cracks and crevices. Bed bugs send out communication signals to other bed bugs when they are dying and warn them all to escape, and once the coast is clear the surviving bed bugs are likely to return swiftly to their host.
