Commercial Cockroach Control Services
Cockroaches bring disease and bacteria into your environment and are a primary cause of the increasing number of asthma cases in our cities, particularly among children. Several recent comprehensive studies by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the National Institute of Allergy and Infections Diseases have confirmed the dangerous connection between cockroaches and asthma in children.
They report that "one in five children in the United States have severe sensitivities to cockroach allergens, which can cause or increase the severity of asthma symptoms. These allergens are most commonly introduced into homes through cockroach saliva, droppings and the decomposing bodies of these pests," reports the National Pest Management Association in a recent press release.
Multi-family unit, apartment managers, and industry and warehouse managers must be vigilant in preventing cockroach infestations, which usually increase as temperatures rise in the summer. Cockroaches thrive in warm, dark, moist places and are most active when temperatures reach 70 degrees and above.
German cockroaches can be very difficult to eradicate. They are pervasive and bred quickly. Our new Cryonite® treatment can get German cockroaches under control fast!
Cryonite® has been show to be extremely effective in killing German cockroaches and egg cases. These bugs just can not hide from the invasive vapor-like pressurized CO2 snow that Cryonite® makes freezing them dead instantly.
Cryonite® is CO2 (carbon dioxide) snow that is pressurized and when applied in thin layers kills German cockroaches and other insects by a rapid freezing of the fluids in their cells causing instant death. When the CO2 snow hits surfaces at normal temperatures it evaporates and becomes CO2 gas. During this process energy is required and this heat energy is extracted from the immediate surroundings. If insects are part of the immediate surroundings the energy is taken from them and extreme cooling results, the water in their cells crystallizes to ice, killing the insects instantly. This crystallization occurs when the pest is cooled to -20ºC to -30ºC. Material will only be chilled on the surface. Most materials have the ability to transport energy from their larger mass. When the pest is deep frozen, it has to stay frozen for a short while for a full kill. Cryonite® particles are optimized for reaching the pest, and clinging to it assuring an effective kill. Not only does Cryonite® kill cockroaches, bed bugs, and other pests, but kills insect pests in all life stages including eggs that other insecticide treatments can not kill.
The CO2 snow made by Cryonite® is a mixture of three different types of particles: small, medium and large sizes. The three together will form snow with optimum freezing qualities. This mixture has been tested to give the optimum result against pests. As the CO2 snow is blown out of the patented applicator's nozzle, the vapors rapidly and easily penetrate areas where cockroaches like to hide; freezing them to death in their hiding places. The snow vapor stream is simply able to penetrate places where other treatments simply can not reach for an effective "kill".
The CO2 used by the Cryonite® system is non toxic and is recycled from industrial processes. It does not add additional CO2 into the atmosphere. Cryonite® is a truly "green" system. There are no pesticide smells, messy wet residues, or health implications when Cryonite® is used. The CO2 used is food grade quality and presents no risk of contamination, even in sensitive industries.
