Does it work?

Because it operates as a preventative sterilizer for small items, the PackTite should only be used as a part of a more intensive treatment plan. It's going to be really hard for you to actually heat up every possible space that they could be hiding in. However, where it really shines is for two things: 1) if you're a frequent traveler, and you want to kill any bed bugs that might be hiding in your luggage; or 2) if you are wanting to move your stuff out of an infested location, and don't want to bring them with you.

One big issue, though: this thing is heating anything you put inside it. So you are going to have to use your own judgment about whether or not it could damage what you stick in there.
