It is enough to heat infected surfaces up to 70 degrees Celsius and maintain the temperature for an hour to kill parasites. Although, it is important to know that this method is used to treat small-sized items. For example, it would be difficult to warm up a mattress, so, in this case the method would be ineffective. Clothing, curtains, bed linen may be simply ironed. Iron temperature will be enough to kill bugs, eggs and larvae.
