ThermaSpot™ by PackTite ensures the success of your bed bug heat treatment by allowing you to visually confirm that items treated have reached 49° C, the lethal temperature for bed bugs where all life stages are killed. When the treatment cycle is complete, and the heat reaches 49° C or more, the indicator will change from white to black indicating that the item has been sufficiently heated. The indicators are for one-time use and will remain black even after cooling down, giving you the freedom to check on the items whenever convenient for you.
These were designed to be used with the PackTite™ Closet and other heaters such as the ZappBug Oven, ZappBug Heater, and ZappBug Room. They can also be used when heating your clothes in the dryer or when treating an entire room.
For example, let’s say you return from vacation and would like to heat treat your luggage, you would put ThermaSpots™ in the middle of your luggage, place luggage in a heater like the PackTite™ Closet, run the heater and once the treatment cycle is complete check to see if the ThermaSpots™ has turned black. If not, start the cycle over again for a longer time. The same applies if you would be treating a room, place the ThermaSpots™ underneath the cushions of your couch for example and inspect once the treatment is complete.
Essentially, you want to put ThermaSpots™ wherever there could be cold spots in the room or in the item being treated, ensuring that the hardest spots for heat to reach is being properly treated.
