Please can anyone help me THIS IS AN EMERGENCY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the BEST WAY to get rid of bedbugs is to have your house or apartment heated to over 120 degrees.
bedbugs can not live in heat that high and they die. i saw a show called infested on animal planet or the travel channel and they had several cases where people blew their life savings trying to get rid of bedbugs via exterminators with poisons and such and the ONLY sure method was to have the professionals show up with what appeared to basically be a giant blow dryer to over heat them and kill them for sure.
one of the families removed all of their belongings and took them to a room that they had made that could easily be heated and i believe did it themselves- their furnishings anyway- they still had to get the 'blow dryer' treatment for the house.
Well, I watched a documetary on this and it is becomeing a really big problem everywhere. I'm thinking the only sure way is to get them taken care of is by professionals. You could at least call a profesional exterminator, tell them your financial concerns and see if they will advise you on how to do it yourself. Also, this could be at least half of your landlords responsibility. My advice is to talk to the professionals and get some good solid answers.
so how should i heat my house? would turning the oven and stove iyes on and turning the heat on high in the house do anything?
