What temperature do bed bugs start get uncomfortable and hot in?…

Since bed bugs tend to stay closer to humans inside of our residences and businesses they have become accustomed to around 70 degrees. Thats the same temp that most people will keep their homes at year round. They do their very best at around 80 degrees though. They can lay more eggs, feed more and just be all around more active at 80 degrees. It’s when you get above 89-90 degrees Fahrenheit that bed bugs start to look for cooler areas to hide in. Once temperatures reach 120 degrees bed bugs will die from heat exhaustion within 60 minutes. At 120 degrees bed bug eggs will die within 90 minutes. Once a heat remediation treatment for bed bugs reaches a temperature of over 130 degrees Fahrenheit bed bugs die instantly as well as eggs don’t last much longer.

It cannot just be heat itself when killing bed bugs…

Heat remediation (aka bed bug heat treatment for the whole home) cannot be successful with just heat pumped into an area. There must be a set number of high temperature fans spreading the heat throughout the home or business when doing a bed bug heat remediation treatment. Usually about 6-10 fans per room is what we use for our heat treatments. Without those high temperature fans blowing the hot air into every piece of furniture and around every corner. Plus all of the items and furniture must be separated from each other to allows optimal air flow where bed bugs actually hide. This must be done because once they realize the rooms temperature is going up above their desired temp, they will scurry for cover in cooler spots deep into cracks, crevices and fabrics especially.

Bed bugs do not like temperatures over 90 degrees Fahrenheit or under 65 degrees​ Fahrenheit.

What temperature do bed bugs get uncomfortable and cold in?…

Bed bugs will normally get uncomfortably cold around 65 degrees Fahrenheit and lower. They will remain active until around 45 degrees but at a low temp like this they are extremely lathargic. It is possible to kill bed bugs with cold but it must be for a percise amount of time or the bed bug may just basically be frozen and thaw out to resumed it’s activities. At 32 degrees it will take weeks for bed bugs to die. At negative -30 degrees it will take minutes for bed bugs to die. Finally at negative -60 to -90 degrees bed bugs die when exposed for 30 seconds with freeze flash. It’s a tool that somewhat resembles and even operates like a steamer with a hose that attaches to a wand that disperses the steam. Or rather in this case extremely cold bursts of CO2. We do not do this type of pest control for bed bugs. It is not efficient. Instead we use heat remediation! It’s when an entire residence, structure, home, business, area, room, whatever needs a bed bug treatment, is heated all at once.
