ThermalStrike Ranger lets customers rid luggage of bed bugs
CHICAGO, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With eight of TripAdvisor's top 10 most popular travel destinations in the U.S. also currently falling on Orkin's most recent list of top 50 Bed Bugs Cities, travelers are encouraged to take proactive measures this summer for protection against bed bugs.
Protect-A-Bed has launched a reusable, portable treatment bag, the ThermalStrike Ranger, designed to rid luggage of bed bugs. Using the similar heat technology that makes ThermalStrike heated luggage popular among travelers, the Ranger eliminates bed bugs by surrounding luggage with penetrating heat on all sides to destroy all stages of bed bugs and eggs.
The Ranger is reusable and collapsible for easy storage. The durable unit is designed to treat carry-on and mid-sized suitcases ranging from 22" to 27". It features an integrated timer that immediately turns off the unit after the cycle is complete.
This is the latest ThermalStrike product designed to help consumers, travelers, and pest control operators destroy bed bugs and eggs before they infiltrate a home.
"The National Pest Management Association recommends exposure to temperatures over 118 degrees Fahrenheit for bed bug management," Brian Hirsch, director of sales, Industrial Division/ThermalStrike said. "The Ranger is designed to exceed these temperatures to kill all stages of bed bugs and eggs, while maintaining temperatures that are safe for most items."
According to Hirsch, this offers peace-of-mind for summer travelers. "In the event you brought some pesky guests back from your travels, you know they won't infiltrate your home," he says.

ThermalStrike is state-of-the-art infrared heat technology that actively kills all life stages of bed bugs. ThermalStrike luggage helps consumers avoid bringing bed bugs into their home after travel. Available in two sizes, a 20? carry-on and 24? upright, ThermalStrike luggage is TSA and FAA compliant, features an ultra-thin heating system with an integrated thermometer that automatically shuts off after reaching the desired temperature to kill bed bugs. The ThermalStrike Expedition is a reusable and collapsible box that will heat-treat most consumer goods within approximately eight hours. For more information, visit www.thermalstrike.com.
