The Chicago Bed Bug Summit was a great success, raising awareness and providing options for pest control, extermination and the obliteration of bed bugs. We all knew that once bedbugs had invaded the sanctity of Victoria’s Secret, the evil bugs would need to be exterminated.
Adding insult to injury they also violated the pristine environments of Abercrombie & Fitch and challenged Nike by “just doing it” in their New York store.
America can only take so much of this type of insolence so this week America was exposed a myriad of solutions to annihilating the annoying pests. Bed bug extermination methods use heat trailers to bake them, frying them, chemical pesticides, tracking them down with Scooby the Bedbug sniffing dog and starving them with mattress covers for bed bugs. But, by far, the most interesting method was Cryonite, which turns CO2 gas into a snow that freeze bed bugs.
“Cryonite was developed in Sweden and has been in use in Europe and Australia since 2005,” explained Lorne Chadnick of Restassured.com, the only licensed Cryonite distributors in North America. Their patented machine takes liquid CO2 and produces tiny snowflakes. Bedbugs have a hard outer skin that is called an exoskeleton and is very much like a space suit, in that it protects the bugs from extreme temperature changes. Therefore Cryonite’s claim to fame is that it produces two snowflake sizes that are able to penetrate their armor and rapid freeze them from the inside out.
Aside from being effective, the Cryonite process is also one of the most environmentally friendly pest control methods on the market. The snow is made from CO2 gas which is widely used in the creation of soda pop, it does not leave a residue or chemical smell, it does not stain fabric or furniture, it dissipates quickly and it can be safely used around people. If you have ever been to rock concert or the science center where you saw dry ice roll off the stage like fog, then you have seen what Cryonite is made of.
What about the recent EPA/CDC joint statement on the use of Pesticides in bed bug control? Another bonus with using Cryonite is that it is not a restricted substance. There is no licensing required, so for the first time Property Management Companies can take control of their pest management with a highly effective weapon. When you think you may have a bed bug problem, you can attack it immediately without having to call a pest control company, without having to close rooms, without having to wait hours or days, or displace your tenants… it is a concept that some Property Managers are having trouble understanding. DDT is gone, wake up, the future is here!
So, the next time that you are drinking a soda at a rock concert, think of Cryonite. More info can be had at restassuredmc.com or by calling Dean toll free at 1 877 411 0053.
