You can immediately start treatment with our all natural bed bug heating system. There is no need to pretreat infested items with bed bug sprays, powders or other harmful pesticides. The ZappBug Room™ kills 100% of all bed bugs, in all life stages, including eggs, nymphs and adults as a non-toxic and all natural bed bug killer

This large bed bug heater lets you heat treat more items at once, thus reducing your time spent killing bed bugs. Easily transport and store the ZappBug Room™ with the included carry bags.

The temperature typically ranges between 120 F and 155 F, which will kill all bed bugs and is safe for most belongings. The heaters are designed with safety in mind and have a tip-over safety feature. The ZappBug Room™ is designed to operate in residential or commercial locations using four separate 120v, 1500w power sources, and comes with included extension cords. The ZappBug Room™ is extremely easy to use. One person can assemble the Room in less than 10 minutes.

Operate the Room unattended with included timers that automatically shut off. Also included is a wireless digital thermometer with three wireless probes to ensure that temperatures reach above 120 F in your items (bed bugs die rapidly at 120 F and above.)

The included recirculation mounts to the Room Frame. Position the recirculation fan in the middle of the frame against the back wall as shown below. It is normal for the recirculation fan to tilt slightly to one side. Slide the recirculation fan power cord through the small opening on the middle top of the back wall. The recircu¬lation fan may be plugged into the same electrical circuit or outlet as one of the four heaters. Fan inlet should face into the Room and Outlet should be directed at the floor.

Bed Bug Extermination

Because of their high levels of mobility, bed bug infestations are some of the more common pests our clients in The Bronx ask us to rid them of. Contrary to popular belief, a bed bug infestation doesn't mean that a home or office is "dirty" or unkempt. Bed bugs have been known to get into luggage and be brought from overseas, cling onto pets or clothing, or even come in on used furniture.

If left unchecked, bed bugs can spread very rapidly. Females can carry hundreds of eggs in one cluster, eggs that are smaller than a speck of dust. They are also very hard to detect once the infestation is underway. Because they feed on people’s blood while they sleep, many of The Bronx's homeowners think that their itching is caused by mosquitoes or allergies. Here are some of the signs you should look out for to see if you have bed bugs:

  • Blood stains on sheets and pillow cases
  • Rusty brown spots on your linen usually indicate bedbug excrement
  • Powdery fecal matter found in crevices throughout your home
  • Musty odour coming from their scent glands

While they are generally more of an annoyance than a threat, bed bugs have been known to cause adverse reactions, particularly to those more prone to allergies and skin irritation. This is why we at 5 Star Environments LLC offer some of the most aggressive and comprehensive measures available in all of The Bronx. Our measures include things like heat treatment and fumigation, especially around your mattress and bed frame.
