    Hey,

    I have some bagged clothes that I would normally take to a dry cleaner, such as suits, shirts, etc.

    How high does the heat need to be in dryers to kill bed bugs and their eggs?

    Thanks!

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    A core temperature of 120F within the item will kill all life cycles. I use a base temp of 160F in my heater to reach the required 120F core.
