Mike in Clackton asked:
Does a heated or possibly an electric blanket kill off bed bugs or does it make them more active?
Toby - It depends if youíve got a super-hot electric blanket, but no.
Chris - A serious electric blanket, wouldnít it?
Toby - Yes, exactly. No, they're quite happy at the temperatures an electric blanket would have. In fact, what's one of the hypotheses is that central heating, keeping the house a certain temperature has actually helped them. They donít die off in the winter which they might have done back before we could maintain a constant temperature, but I donít think an electric blanket would have the best thing for you.
