Dealing with bed bugs is extremely frustrating and although drastic times lead to drastic measures, you should not try and kill bed bugs with boiling water. This is one method you may have heard of because a bed bug cannot survive boiling water being poured on it, however, it will not address your situation.
The myth goes, that by pouring boiling water on your affected mattress, you’ll get rid of your bed bug problem. Although this method may seem logical, it is not effective for treating a bed bug infestation. The water may kill some of the bed bugs, but you’ll miss the bed bugs tucked away in other areas of the room. Since bed bugs are masters at hiding, you won’t be able to reach all of them in an affected area with boiling water.
Though pesticides are a common application, other treatments use a similar method. Diatomaceous Earth is one substance that’s chalk-like in texture and known to kill bed bugs.

Even more, mattress encasements can often be fire retardant and antimicrobial. Because they can be helpful, we recommend using a mattress encasement in most situations if you think you are at risk for bed bugs.
