Product Overview

The ZappBug Heater will kill 100% of bed bugs in books, shoes, paper goods, clothing and many more items. It's designed to fit most common carry-on or checked luggage. Measures 43" x 22.75"x 24". It is very portable, and can easily be transported as a 13-inch cube. 100% non-toxic and safe - it contains no pesticides or chemicals, only heat. The temperature will range between 120-155 degrees Fahrenheit, which kills all bed bugs, but is safe for your belongings. The ZappBug Heater is very easy to use. It can be assembled by just one person in under 10 minutes. It uses a separate 1500w, 110V power source and can be operated in both commercial and residential locations. It includes automatic shut-off timers as well as a tip-over safety feature. Also included are a digital wireless thermometer and 3 digital probes to ensure that temperatures remain over 120 F in all items you are treating (bed bugs will die very quickly at 120 F and above). The Zappbug Heater is not for treating rooms.

    Zappbug Heater

    By Steve on 05/12/2014

    The heaters work well but need a temp control thermostat so the temp can be regulated. We already melted one TV.

    Works Great - ZappBug Heater

    By John on 07/24/2014

    Verified Purchase

    This product is great. It not only is cheaper that other Bed Bug Cookers that I have used in the past, but it also comes to temperature (Over 120 Degrees) quicker than the more expensive units I have purchased in the past. It also folds down to a smaller size for storage, although sometimes it is hard to figue out how to fold it down. This "Cooker" is half the price and ships out fast. We use these in a residential setting for all our new admits and also to treat clothing and belongings when a person has been out of the facility for a visit. Works great - you should get yourself one.

Q
Will ZappBug Heater damage or melt certain fabrics?

I buy vintage clothes at thrift stores and have a great fear of bringing home bedbug eggs that might be hiding in the seams. I always wash the clothes immediately, but not all items can be washed in hot water or dried on hot setting. Therefore, it seems to follow that the Zappbug might damage those garments, I'm wondering if that's correct.

A
A ZappBug Heater ranges from 120-155 degrees Fahrenheit. With that being said, if you have an article of clothing that you will likely not put into a dryer, it should not go into the ZappBug Heater. We would recommend being very careful with items made of synthetic fabrics.

Bed bugs die in 120 degrees Fahrenheit and above. If you are washing your items and drying them when you get them from the store, you are likely doing enough to make sure that the bed bugs are not hatching. You could also use Steri-Fab directly on your clothing as well.
