    Found this on the net, it's from March 2010. It doesn't mention the temperature of killing bb eggs, but we know they die at 120 degrees.

    Hi Sleepless,

    I saw a video (can't recall where) of such a system used in dorms at a university. They were taking the beds in rooms with infestations and cooking them in similar enclosures.

    Sounds like the "U of Florida" method. They use it in their dorms. Note that there are a lot of safety and effectiveness caveats. This method is probably beyond the ability of most lay people.
