i just spoke to a heating bed bug company in North Carolina , they charge by sq ft, with a $300.00 min and their trucks can heat multiple units near each other, ie for landlords of apartment buildings, take 30-60mins to set up and break down, about 2-3 hours to get to kill temp, then 2-4 hours to kill… so between 6-9 hours to exterminate, and they guaranty for 30days, or a second heating will be of no charge.
Heat treatment kills the bugs and the eggs DURING the treatment - if there are any bugs left after they are done heating your place, it failed! The sheet they left you is just wrong. I had heat treatment myself and am not a big proponent of them, but there are others on this site that have had success with them.
Why heat treatments DON'T work for BED BUGS! why heat treatments fail so many times on a home. One thing that I forgot to mention in the video is it can take 3-6 months AFTER a heat treatment
