How Cryonite Can Help You

Commercial environments have unique pest control needs, and your hotel, motel, or apartment complex is no exception. Want to stand out from the competition and keep bed bugs at bay? You can rely on Cryonite.

What is Cryonite?
Cryonite is an innovative, non-chemical treatment that proactively prevents bed bug infestation. How? Cryonite prevents bed bugs from taking up residence at your commercial property with the help of CO2 (carbon dioxide).  Cryonite rapidly freezes bed bugs, killing them in all life stages, including eggs, without the use of insecticides.

Don’t let bedbugs wreak havoc on your bottom line.
Bed bug problems equal bad publicity for your business, and infestations can really take a toll on your bottom line. Our unique Cryonite treatment:

Hints from Heloise: Call a Pro to Kill Bed Bugs

A recent Hints from Heloise column posted this query from “A Reader in Washington”:

“Dear Heloise: Is there an at-home remedy to get rid of bed bugs?”

“Sorry to give you not-so-good news,” Heloise responded. “There really isn’t any home remedy to get rid of bed bugs. Over-the-counter pesticides and bug removal products do not work.”

We’re pleased to see America’s go-to source for reliable home tips spreading the word about do-it-yourself bed bug treatment. Too many people are injuring themselves and putting their families at risk by trying to treat bed bugs themselves. The Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention recently reported a noticeable rise in reports of “acute illnesses” related to ”excessive insecticide application” by do-it-yourselfers trying to rid their homes or apartments of these blood-sucking pests.

Bed bugs are impervious to house and garden pesticides. Trying to kill bed bugs with household sprays or bug bombs will only send bed bugs into hiding and fill your home with toxic chemicals that can endanger the health of your family and pets. The only safe and effective methods of ridding your home or office of bed bugs are application of extreme cold using the Cryonite system, extended application of extreme heat or multiple applications of professional pesticides. In all cases, extermination should be performed only by a licensed pest control professional with proven expertise in successful bed bug extermination.

If you have bed bugs, call the bed bug experts at Stern Environmental for fast, non-toxic extermination.

How Cold Does It Have to Get to Kill Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are sensitive to extreme temperatures. When correctly applied by an expert bed bug exterminator, both high heat and freezing cold can and will kill bed bugs. In both cases, a certain temperature must be reached and maintained for a specific period of time to guarantee the death of these insects. However, a recent study indicates that bed bugs may be better that previously believed at protecting themselves against low temperatures.

Like many insects, bed bugs have the ability to shield themselves against injury from cold temperatures by lowering the freezing point of their body fluids. As reported by the Entomological Society of America, a new study has been able to document bed bug behavior at various low temperature exposures and durations, providing pest control professionals with reliable bed bug control data.

Study results validate the instantly lethal effectiveness of Stern’s Cryonite bed bug extermination system. Researchers found that at temperatures below 5 F., bed bugs at all stages of development died within 3.5 days. Decreasing the temperature, shortened the necessary exposure time to guarantee 100% extermination; although some bed bugs were able to survive short exposures to below zero temperatures down to minus 13 F. Our Cryonite system uses a carbon dioxide “snow” super-cooled to a temperature of minus 110 F. which instantly freezes and kills bed bugs at all stages of development, including eggs.

 

Plainfield, NJ Senior Complex Overrun by Bed Bugs, Cockroaches

On its website, the city of Plainfield, New Jersey in Union County bills itself as “a suburban treasure,” nothing that it attracts “people from many different lifestyles and backgrounds” who enjoy friendly, small town life. Unfortunately for residents of Richmond Towers, the city’s housing complex for low-income seniors, Plainfield also attracts bed bugs and cockroaches.

Operated by the Housing Authority of Plainfield, the 12-story senior housing complex is overrun by bed bugs and cockroaches, according to NJ.com. While admitting that some work orders may have been missed, building management said they have exterminated for bed bugs several times but can’t seem to get ahead of the infestation and speculated that residents may be bringing bed bugs into the building from senior centers.

The problems at Richmond Towers illustrate the difficult of exterminating bed bugs and cockroaches in apartment buildings. Building management typically relies on residents to prepare their apartments for treatment and clean their clothing and possessions to remove bed bugs and their eggs, an overwhelming task for many residents. If eggs or bugs are missed during cleaning and treatment, infestations can regrow quickly.

It takes persistence, a joint effort between management and residents and an expert licensed New Jersey bed bug exterminator to rid multi-family housing units of bed bugs. Cryonite offers a 2-for-1 punch, killing bed bugs and cockroaches instantly and safely. Visit our website to find out more.

How to Prevent Cockroach Infestations

Cockroaches may seem an inevitable past of doing business in New York City or northern New Jersey, but your business reputation may hinge on your ability to control and exterminate these noxious pests. Preventing cockroach infestations of commercial properties requires a multi-pronged approach that includes both cockroach prevention measures and commercial pest control services.

Prevention measures include:

  • Exclusion to prevent cockroaches from entering the building either in boxes, bags or supply containers or from other buildings or outdoors.
  • Sanitation is critical to cockroach control as these insects are attracted by dirt, filth and food scraps.
  • Monitoring for cockroach presence allows commercial pest control services to address possible issues before they become a major problem.

Commercial pest control services may include:

  • Bait traps to attract and kill roaches. Roaches not only die from eating poisoned baits, they carry poison back to their nests.
  • Insect growth regulators prevent immature cockroaches from reproducing when they reach adulthood. Colonies gradually die from attrition.
  • Dusts and poisons adhere to the insect’s legs and outer cuticle and are ingested during normal grooming, killing  cockroaches directly or through dehydration.
  • Cryonite is a revolutionary non-toxic cockroach control method that uses a frozen carbon dioxide mist to instantly kill roaches on contact.
