Bed Bugs: Some professional exterminators use portable devices to raise the temperature of a room to a lethal temperature. All stages of bedbugs can be killed at 122 f (50 c). In some cases, you may have to throw out heavily infested items such as mattresses or couches.

No repellants: There are no specific repellents for bed bugs. Liquid & dust pesticides can be sprayed into crevices. There are some bed bugs that are resistant to pyrethroid pesticides. As stated earlier - whole house heating is often used by professional exterminators.
