“The first thing you do is actually remove all the wall plugs and the wall socket covers so the heat can indeed even get into the walls,” Cardon Ellis says when prepping a room.
The bed bugs hide inside the wall sockets or anything tiny that they can get into. This is why Cardon Ellis says to move all your belongings into the middle of the room. Fans will be placed along the room to “withstand all kinds of temperatures.”
Cardon Ellis then equips a 50,000 BTU heater by GreenTech. This can burn through “ten to twenty gallons of propane in one job.”
“Basically, you need to have the room at 120 degrees for four hours, 130 degrees for three hours, or 140 degrees for two hours before you can call the job complete.”
A thermal imager can come in handy if you want to see what is going in inside the house. It will be extremely hot inside because the ovicidal ensures that even the eggs will be exterminated. Cardon Ellis called this the “complete kill.”
