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 in St. Petersburg, FL on 07/24/2014
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.

QWill 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.
AA 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.

QWhat is the limit to the size of room the ZappBug Heater will heat?
AThe ZappBug Heater is designed to treat items such as books, shoes, paper goods, and clothing. The dimensions are 43" x 22.75"x 24".
QDo the sides have any give on the ZappBug Heater heater?
My couch cushions are slightly larger than the dimensions and being able to heat them would be a main motive for buying this
AWe have spoken with the manufacturer of the ZappBug Heater and they have stated the sides have some slight give and they should be fine for cushions since they're soft, although they do not recommend putting anything too big in that's hard and could warp the frame. The only limiting factor will be the opening at the top which still has a little give.

QWhat happens to the carcasses when using the ZappBug Heater?
What is the protocol to rid the ZappBug Heater of the fallen bed bugs? Is there an exterminating/sucking mechanism or should we shake out each item individually for carcasses?
A Any carcassess in the ZappBug Heater would need to be physically removed from the unit.†You can use a standard vacuum and then empty or you can shake it out.†Items would need to be inspected and vacuumed or shook out as well.
