    Next week my apartment will be treated for bed bugs via Thermal Remediation, which uses intense heat between 120-135°F to kills the bugs in one treatment.

    Because I have most of my Transformers action figure collection stored in 2 large cardboard boxes in one of my closets, I worry that the heat from the treatment will damage/melt them! :redface2: 

    Will the heat damage/melt them? :confused: 

    Should I remove them all from my apartment or leave them stored where they are? :confused:

    Yeah, that's around 50 degrees Centigrade with is half the boiling point of water. If it's a gradual heating and then cooling, they'd probably be alright, but to be honest I'd take them out to be on the safe side.
