Bed Bug Heaters Kill Covid-19 Coronavirus

06MAY 2020  - Heat Proven to Kill COVID-19

NIH Study



We at PestPro Thermal Systems are sensitive to the stressful conditions that have been created by the current pandemic.

We are committed to doing our part and sharing the burden everyone is experiencing in the same way our vendors are doing for us.

In that spirit, and in an attempt to alleviate the some of the psychological stress bed bugs create, we have decided to make our products available at break-even prices while the pandemic is ongoing, and the economy uncertain.

Effective immediately, pricing for modified versions of both our UNIVERSAL and HOTEL Packages (includes 1 re-circulation fan instead of the standard 2 fans), has been reduced to the lowest possible price point to afford heat treatment and Covid-19 decontamination to as many as possible.

Both 1-fan packages are now available at $2,799.00 USD FREE SHIPPING lower 48 states. Limit of 2 per customer. (These prices do not apply to The Bed Bug Beast™ 480v 3ph heaters).


We have received numerous calls from our lodging customers and public health officials regarding our heaters ability to decontaminate COVID-19 infected living areas where front line medical personnel and quarantined people reside.

Their concern is an important and valid one: once a health care worker departs and another takes their place how do I safely and effectively decontaminate the room for the next guest on both hard and soft surfaces like bedding & padded furniture?

To answer these questions we need to be clear that no claims are being made on our part that our equipment is in any way claiming to be a medical device of any kind. Our heaters were originally designed to kill insects including bed bugs with dry electric heat.

That being said, heat has been proven by the scientific community to kill the COVID-19 Coronavirus when exposed to heat of at least 158° F/ 70° C for 30 minutes (Stanford Medicine study, National Institutes of Health study).

Our heater’s auto-thermostats are normally programmed at the factory to not exceed 145°F but can be reprogrammed  up to 158F. Just call us at 970-221-1036 for instructions on how to do so.

Our re-circulation fans are rated to withstand temperatures of up to 180°F.

Since our heaters are made of steel we know our heaters can withstand these increased temperature no problem.  Plastic budget heaters are unproven to withstand multiple heat-up and cool-down cycles at these higher temperatures.

Call 970-221-1036 for more information or to place an order.

We wish everyone the best in these unprecedented times.

Please stay smart, stay safe and stay healthy!
