depends on where you are and when you want the water treated.
for camping and hiking , water purification tablets are quick and easy methods and one of the best ( used by the armed forces )
if you want it for home use
running the water through a ceramic filter then through an ultra-violet purifier will get rid of all the bugs
for larger volumes an osmosis purifying system as used by the water treatment works in council water supplies is best
so you need to specific as to when you want the water pure.
boiling water is ineffective as it concentrates the bugs and doesn;t kill them all, however distilling water by boiling off and collecting the steam back to water separates the bugs

Tonight we discovered a little community of disgusting, small, roachlike bugs living inside our microwave. Not in the food-preparation part, but ...
If you mean by washing then yes, if you mean by simply spraying then not really......it needs to be a constant stream of hot water, the best method is steam.....you can hire or buy these for a reasonable price:
Bag and launder (122°F/50?C minimum) affected items. Smaller items that cannot be laundered can sometimes be de-infested by heating. Individual items, for example, can be wrapped in plastic and placed in a hot, sunny location for at least a few days (the 122°F/50?C minimum target temperature should be monitored in the center-most location with a thermometer). Bedbugs also succumb to cold temperatures below freezing, but the chilling period must be maintained for at least two weeks. Attempts to rid an entire home or apartment of bed bugs by raising or lowering the thermostat will be entirely unsuccessful.
Wash all linen on hot, dry on hot setting. Gather all linen, cloth and leather bags, mattress covers, clothing, teddy bears... etc. Machine wash on hot - wash the laundry bag also. Tumble dry on hot. Steam kills bed bugs. Some metropolitan areas offer bed bug laundry and dry cleaning services which have the added benefits of proven methods for killing bed bugs and bagging or storing cleaned items so they do not become re-infested while the home is still being exterminated.
If something cannot be washed or discarded (such as a valuable leather purse) spray with non-toxic bed bug spray (such as diatomaceous earth), seal in a plastic bag and leave for a few months.
Heat can be a good way to get rid of bed bugs but heat alone is rarely effective enough to completely kill the population of bed bugs.
Here, I am providing the best solution to get rid of these bed bugs completely. I had used Bed Bug Treatment Toronto as the one-time solution for killing the bed bugs. They have a combination of all effective treatment methods for removing the bed bugs and also they had provided me a free inspection at my residence.
Three things will kill them naturally, heat (above 120 degree F), food grade diatomacious earth and permethrin spray.
Heat that high is hard to do alone, but you can contract (and I recommend you do based on your severity) a company to seal your outside doors and windows, and pump heat into your home for a few hours. This will kill all bedbugs(bb) in all stages of their life cycle. It takes a few hours at this heat to do so.
Diatomaceous earth is a powder that acts like concertina wire to pretty much all bugs. So the bugs have to physically come in contact with it. It is safe for mammals; you and your pet can eat the food grade level. You should dust the areas where there is the most bugs. I would dust around and in the beds, furniture and wherever else you suspect bugs. This will only kill the bugs that are moving. Eggs are safe. Plus, you cannot get the dust everywhere where the bugs can hide.
Permethrin is an oil extract from flowers. It is good against most arthopods and safe for mammals. The oil is diluted with water (I use hot or warm water) and applied by spraying. Depending on your spray applicator, you can spray into many places; however, it is only good for a about 24hrs. Direct contact is a must. It will kill bugs in all stages of life, but again, it must come in direct contact with them.
So to summarize, diatomaceous earth (DE) in conjuction with permethrin can wipe out a small, isolated infestation. If the bugs have moved to multiple places, heat is the best option as a whole-house solution as DE and Permethrin will not get into all the nooks and crannies like inside the walls and electrical outlets. These bugs can and do hide anywhere!
If you want to have the best solution to get rid of bed bugs, here is the best one for you. One trusted and most recommended Bed Bug Extermination Toronto would provide you the one-time permanent solution for killing the whole population of the bed bugs.
You can first use their free inspection service at your residence and further you can use their best-proved solutions for treating the bed bugs in an eco-friendly manner.
Remove control panel cover (4 screws in back up top) Place roach traps inside, the kind that will kill the colony. I lived in Florida for a spell so I know of what you speak. Also, sprinkle boric acid - from the drugstore - around the bases of the cabinetry.
