The thing about bed bugs is that they’re hearty little devils. They hide in tiny cracks and crevices where pesticides don’t reach. They can go months, even a year, between feedings. They can survive in hostile weather, both extreme heat and cold. And they’re prolific enough to put rabbits to shame. A female bed bug lays 1 to 12 eggs per day which hatch in 6 to 17 days. In a year’s time, you can have three generations feasting away.
Nearly eradicated in the U.S. after WWII, bed bugs are back — with a vengeance. New bed bugs are more powerful than a speeding bullet, able to survive commercial pesticides at 10 times the recommended dose, and practically immune to the DDT that wiped out their ancestors in the 1950s. Now, of course, that’s not all bed bugs; but a growing number are being found to be resistant to normal chemical pesticide treatments.
Stern to the rescue! We are among a select number of pest control companies able to offer “The Cryoniter,” a revolutionary new bed bug control system that is popular throughout Europe. Cryonite uses a carbon dioxide “snow” to reach bed bugs where they hide, immobilizing them before they can scurry out of reach. The fast-freezing gas kills adults, nymphs and eggs alike, unlike pesticides which are impotent on eggs.
The best thing about Cryonite is that it uses no harmful pesticides and leaves no toxic residue so it is safe for use around children, seniors and pets. Your home or business can be used right after application. Our customers have been so excited about Cryonite, we’ve had to purchase another system to meet demand. If you get bed bugs, call Stern today and ask for “The Cryoniter.”
