Freezing bedbugs may not kill them after all
Researchers found the bed bugs have a high cold tolerance, beyond the normal freezing point 32 degrees F or 0 degrees C. They concluded that a minimum exposure of 80 hours at 3.2 degrees F (-16 degrees C) was needed to kill 100 percent of the bed bugs. Some bed bugs could survive short-term exposure to temps as low as -13 degrees F (-25 degrees C). Temperatures of -4 degrees F (-20 degrees C) could destroy them in 48 hours.
The researchers suggested placing items in plastic bags and putting them into your freezer. This is not realistic or easy to do for most items in your home, so heat is going to be your best option.
