After trying to elevate his home’s temperature to kill off bed bugs, a Woodbury homeowner accidentally set fire to his house. Alco NJ Animal and Pest Control guarantees safe and thorough solutions to bed bug infestations.

After reading that high temperatures can kill bed bugs, a Woodbury, New Jersey resident tried to use a space heater, hair dryer and heat gun to eliminate the pests, according to CBS. Unfortunately, trying to apply this solution not only caused a fire but also destroyed his entire house. And although the Environmental Protection Agency has stated that high temperatures can kill bed bugs, it cannot be done by simply raising the thermostat. Special tools and equipment are necessary.
