Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
The ZappBug Oven 2 is the replacement for the ZappBug Oven. The new and improved Oven 2 now features dual heating units, one on each side of the tent. Now with two heaters, this unique design more evenly heats the items inside while eliminating the risk of any cold spots.
Unboxing the unassuming brown box that the ZappBug comes reveals the necessities to a successful bed bug heat treatment: the two heater units, temperature gauge and wireless probes, auto shut-off timers, foam support blocks and support net, an extension cord, and an instruction manual.
As always, the construction and design of this ZappBug is superb. The double-layered, insulated walls are just as impressive as ever, and the fold-out design makes assembly ridiculously easy. The heater units have the same Scandinavian design qualities to them, and feel like they can hold up to years of use.
Setting up the Oven 2 for treatment is easy, and should only take a couple of minutes. The tent unfolds in seconds in your hands, and doesn't need a separate frame. Once unfolded, the tent reveals its two elastic ventilation tubes, which is where the heater units are to be installed.
Once assembled, the Oven 2 is ready to be filled with whatever you suspect may have bed bugs. The generous space of the Oven 2 is suitable for a full-sized suitcase (or two), a closet full of clothes, or even some furniture like chairs or night stands. Just make sure that you don't pack anything in too close to the walls, as airflow is needed to ensure everything heats up thoroughly.
Once everything we want to treat is packed in, it's time to zip the Oven shut and plug the heaters in. The included timers shut off automatically when the timed treatment is done; simply plug the heaters into their timers, and the timers into the wall. Since it's difficult to say exactly how long it will take to heat everything inside the Oven to at least 120° F, we advise setting the timers to their maximum setting to be on the safe side.
There's really nothing to compare to the Oven 2. It's larger than every other heater on the market except for the enormous ZappBug Room (which is really in its own class), yet its low price per cubic foot also makes it a great deal. This makes the Oven 2 a sure bet for any homeowners or pest control professionals looking to treat large items (or a bunch of little items) safely and easily. There's a reason that the ZappBug Oven 2 is such a hot seller; it's a no-brainer.
Fast and Effective
The ZappBug can be set up in minutes, and starts heating with the push of a button. Within six hours, everything inside should be heated to a lethal but safe level, ensuring that all bed bugs and their eggs are killed.
Safe for Many Applications
The ZappBug can be used to treat clothes, shoes, books, luggage, chairs, rugs, papers, bedding and more.
Largest Bed Bug Heater Available
The ZappBug has usable dimensions of 37 in x 37 in x 24 in - four times as much space as the original Packtite, and almost twice that of the Packtite Closet.
Bed bugs can hide almost anywhere a credit card can fit. That means they could be camping out in your clothes, shoes, books, and just about any other personal belongings you have in your home.
You can start treating these items by drying your clothes on the highest heat settings possible. Items that can't be thrown in the laundry can be treated with the ZappBug heater.
ZappBug is extremely easy to use. Simply set it up, load it with items and press the "on" switch on the included Belkin timer (making sure that six hours is selected on the timer). The included timer automatically shuts off the heater when the treatment cycle is done.
