ZappBug Oven uses heat to kill all stages of bedbugs by treating your household goods (like bedding, clothing, electronics, books, shoes, and small furniture pieces) with heat ranging between 120 F and 155 F. The ZappBug Oven is the largest bed bug oven available and is 500% bigger than the regular Packtite and 200% bigger than the Packtite Closet. The extra space allows you to treat more items at one time reducing the amount of time needed to fight your bed bug problem. There are no chemicals or pesticides used by the ZappBug just heat making it safe and non-toxic.
For those of you who travel the ZappBug can fit both checked and carry-on size luggage pieces. Just treat your bags after every trip to insure that you did not bring along any unwanted passengers.
Using the ZappBug is simple and easy. Set the oven up, put the items inside that you want to treat and turn it on. A built in timer automatically shuts the ZappBug Oven off when the treatment is over and the included wireless digital thermometer will let you monitor the temperature to insure it reaches peak bed bug killing temps of +120 F.
Storage is easy as the ZappBug Oven folds to just 4 inches thick when not in use.

Will zapping a suitcase full of stuff also kill bedbugs on everything inside?
The ZappBug Oven is designed for both carry on and checked luggage to fit inside of to treat all items at once. The more stuff you have packed inside the suitcase, the longer it needs to stay in as it has more layers that the heat has to penetrate through. If you were only treating a few clothing items by themselves you would probably only need to treat for 3 hours versus longer times for thicker items.
Why would I choose this product over Paktite, which is cheaper?
PS I found the answer to how long to leave things in, 3-6 hours, but would like more clarification (that's quite a range).
Both products work really well when used as directed. You can see the side by side comparison here: Packtite vs Bug Oven. With this comparison you can see that the size of each product is different, the material and contruction is idifferent and the warranties on each product is different. The 3-6 hour range is given because the more items or you put in at one time the longer the items would need to remain in the product to reach bedbug killing temps. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Why this vs.using my home oven? I have been baking certain things at very low temps with some success.
We think the obvious answer would be because of the exposed element in your oven which could lead to a fire. And also, most folks are not willing to put bedbug infested items in the same oven they will use to cook their food.
