Bed Bugs in Schools
All it takes is one bed bug in your child’s backpack to infest your home.
You can’t control if other children bring bed bugs to school but you can make sure that your child’s stuff is bed bug free.
Bed bugs are being found every day in schools. These infestations grow rapidly over the course of a couple days and spread from classroom to classroom, between lockers, in library books, and even crawl into your child’s backpack and belongings.
It is important that you learn how to prevent bed bugs from infesting your home. Exterminators can cost thousands of dollars, so be proactive before it is too late.
OUR HEAT TREATMENT SYSTEMS KILLS BED BUGS
In three easy steps!
PLACE BACKPACK, JACKETS, BOOKS AND OTHER SCHOOL BELONGINGS IN THE ZAPPBUG HEATER
Remember to remove any items that have low melting temperatures (ex. Crayons, lip balm, paintings, etc.)
HEAT TREAT YOUR BELONGINGS AT 120 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT FOR 1 HOUR
After your belongings get to 120F it just takes one hour to kill Bed Bugs!
You have prevented your home from being infested!
Prevention is key when dealing with bed bugs in schools.
The most important items you will want to pay attention to are the child’s backpack and jacket. Bed bugs love to hide and will spread while these items are near each other: on buses, hung up, or even on the back of chairs. This is how they get into your home and become unwanted guests.
The easiest way to treat backpacks and jackets is with heat – simply place them straight into a ZappBug Heater or ZappBug Oven 2 as soon as your child gets home from school and let it run for one hour at 120F.
This simple, quick treatment allows you to know that any bed bugs that were in or on your child’s things are dealt with by heat treatment.
