I honestly don't know where to put this thread. But something tells me it's better suited here.

I need to raise the temperature of my house to at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 130-140 would be preferred. I have an unfortunate infestation, and I'd like to nip it in the bud before it takes a toll on my health and sanity.

I have a wood stove, and I go out and cut my own wood. I was hoping this would be the cheapest/ safest method to heat my house too the needed temperature.

Is there a formula on hand for how hot my house will get? As in, how much will the temperature drop the further you get away from the stove and stove piping?

Any other bases I need to cover?

Op, too had an infestation and I considered raising the temperature but in my situation I would have had to do it with propane or electric. So I tried something different I put a 5 foot piece of pvc pipe on my shop vac, this let me vacuum every nook and cranny of my house floor to ceiling with with ease. I was able to eradicate my problem with my shop vac, give it a try if anything it will severely put a dent in the problem. Having said that what people usually do with raising the heat is they use a temperature monitor with probes in various parts of the house this will let you know when the house is up to temperature. Keep us updated.

Find and caulk every hole in the house, then leave a few cubic feet of dry ice out over about a week. It should suffocate everything. If you want to be hardcore, buy a cannister of carbon monoxide and leave it on just before you leave.

WARNING do NOT do this if there is any chance that someone could show up. Leave warning signs just inside the house in case someone does.

DO NOT INITIATE THIS PROCESS WITH A DOOR CLOSED! Keep a door or two open until you walk out the door. Prop it open to ensure it can't close on you.

DO NOT leave any pets inside. Everything inside the house will die.

Much appreciated. I also put a dent in the problem with a shop vac and about 2 gallons of bleach, Since I cut and sell a lot of firewood anyways, using the wood stove is not only the cheapest route, but I heard that temperature control is the way to go. I'll be putting this plan into action within the next day or two.

If you measure the inside and outside temperature before and while you pile on logs you can just plot it in excel to see if its viable. The hotter you need it the harder it gets.
