    Hi,

    Last fall my neighbors put all their stuff on the curb. I saw that they had a large large tower fan so I put it under a covering on my porch. I then learned that they had bed bugs so i never moved the fan inside of my house. The fan has been sitting outside for the entire fall and new England winter (lowest temp probably 7 degrees). How much of a risk would it be to move this fan inside of my house?

    That would depend on the level of infestation, the location in the house and the frequency of use.

    That temperature would not kill them, and they can live up to 2 years without food.
    Personally I wouldn't bring it in. A new fan is a whole lot cheaper than an exterminator lol
