While freezing can kill bed bugs, temperatures must remain very low for a long time if you are attempting to freeze large bulky items. Home freezers are usually not cold enough to kill bed bugs unless you set them to 0° F and use a thermometer to be sure the low temperature reaches the center of your item. Putting things outside in the winter time can kill bed bugs if temperatures dip low enough.It can take several days when the temperature is 0°F and almost a week when the temperature is 20° F. Also temperatures above 5°F will not kill bed bug eggs. You may want to consider professional treatment since bed bugs don't restrict themselves to the bed. They can be found in any crack or crevice around the room.Here is a good article that tells more about bed bugs.
