Beds bugs are highly susceptible to heat which is why a dry vapor steam treatment can be used effectively to kill bed bugs. Some bed bugs are resistant to chemicals but none can withstand 200+ degree heat killing both bed bugs and their eggs. Choosing the right steamer is crucial - a bed bug steamer must be capable of hot high-pressure steam and must have sufficient water capacity and the right attachments included.
