    First, any idea when it will be back in stock? I need to get one soon, and it would be really hard for me to afford the closet. Second, is there any risk of the blower/motor attachment getting infested and if so, what can be done about it? Now that I think about it, I have a third question: once it has been used, can it be compressed for shipment? (since I will be moving soon and will probably be shipping items to my new location). Thanks for any info!

    I dropped David James from Packtite a note alerting him to this thread.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    We are working hard to secure more supplies for the max so we can start shipping product. As far as the heater itself, simply running the unit will decontaminate the insides of the heater leaving only the outside of the heater unit to inspect which can be done pretty easily visually. Once the heater is turned on, the inner portion of the heater becomes a death zone pretty quickly. The unit also does collapse down as well.

    Thank you, David James! I called US Bed Bugs today and they said they are expected back in stock in June -- do you think it will be that long? Also, would it be safe to treat the outside of the heater with spray alcohol? Thanks again for your response.

    Are you saying that when the heater is turned on the bedbugs could potentially run to the outside of the heater? Yikes
