VERY IMPORTANT: Please note, electric bed bug heaters generally require one to several hours to reach kill temperatures (120º-140ºF); cold weather, poorly insulated rooms, vaulted ceilings, concrete walls/floors, and inadequate power supply may also impact the time required to achieve kill temperatures as well as the capacity of the heater. Please take exact measurements of your space before ordering this product. If your treatment space is larger than 400 sqft, even slightly, this heater will likely NOT ACHIEVE the above referenced recommended temperature range. Please seek a larger capacity heater from our list on the previous page.
