Bedbug Control: Step by Step on how to kill and get rid of bed bugs with professional bed bug treatment sprays and bed bug solutions. Do It Yourself and get it done.
Labeling a mattress or covering with "Bed Bugs" is also helpful. Infested sheets, linens, and garments should be washed and then dried in a household dryer on high heat (over 120 degrees F), as the heat will kill bed bugs. Any garments that cannot be washed may need to be dry-cleaned or discarded as insecticides cannot be used on these materials.
Hiring a pro to wipe out bed bugs isn't cheap. Expect to pay about $200 per room to kill bed bugs, and you'll likely need a few chemical treatments in order to eradicate bed bugs. Professional heat treatments will cost even more.
Keep them in the hot water for about half an hour. After washing, put them in the clothes dryer for drying. Here too, heat them at around the same temperature. Alternatively, you can dry the washed items under the sun. The bed bugs and their eggs will succumb to high temperature of the water and dryer.
So, yes, bed bugs can be destroyed by heat, but you have to make sure the heat is high enough and lasts long enough in order to kill them off. If you do it incorrectly, you might knock off a few of them but they'll repopulate and be back in full force before long.
