You’ve likely heard many horror stories of bed bugs overtaking certain destinations around the world, and it may have you feeling less than comfortable about cozying up in a hotel bed or unpacking your suitcase in your guestroom. While no one wants to fall prey to a bed bug infestation, one brand has a solution to help all the itching, especially if you’re traveling and end up with a few bites (whether they’re caused by a bed bug or any other pest).


Heat it is a smartphone-powered, battery-free device you plug into your phone and control via the Heat it app. The device works with both iPhones and Android devices, and is small enough to be carried on a keychain.


So, how does it work?


You plug the device into your phone and let it heat up. You can input some information about the treatment you need. Then, place Heat it directly on your bug bite. Heat it heats up to 126 degrees Fahrenheit, a process proven to relieve itching by reducing nerve stimuli. The safe, hyperthermal process has been shown to relieve itching from mosquito, bee, wasp and fly bites (and, now, the brand claims, bed bug bites).


Heat it starts at $39.95.
