Can I just put my things outside in an Alaska winter to kill bed bugs?April 4, 2013 4:41 pm Leave your thoughts
This has been tried, but with little success. Just as with the heat treatments, the ability for killing cold temperatures to reach the insect or egg and maintain the temperature (there is also an issue of how quickly the temperature is reduced and the constant rise and fall thereof) has not proven to be dependable. As for cryogenic treatments that have recently been in the news, they penetrate even less that steam does, so it is not a service we desire to sell. UPDATE: Feb 10, 2011 A recent study showed Bed Bug eggs can survive freezing temperatures for up to 30 days.
