@talk72000,
Do they then become oven bugs or kitchen bugs?

That seems no better than place bug on Block A, hit bug with Block B.

He could make a sauna to avoid burning and I think a hot sauna could also kill the bed bugs.

I did not read the article describing the process, but it seems from what I have seen that it kills the bugs in and on furniture and the like. But it doesn't seem to do anything inside the home. Bedbugs hide in the house, so that you could remove all the furniture and clean it, but it would get re-infested if the house was not treated.

He's from Winnepeg, the winter cold there should do it alone, no need for heat.

@talk72000,

@ossobuco,
He is a hotel owner and I guess the use of a used trailer is the new use.

@ossobuco,
Yes, I suggested chilling one room at a time and use a steamer to get all the linen, etc.
