How Does Cryonite Work?

How Cryonite Works

Cryonite is a revolutionary, non-toxic, green method of insect extermination that is used extensively in Europe and Australia but is fairly new to the U.S. Unlike pesticides that use toxic chemicals, Cryonite employs extreme cold to kill pests, literally freezing insects to death. It has proven to be extremely effective in killing bed bugs and German cockroaches, two of the most difficult to control pests in both commercial and residential settings.

How Cryonite Works

The Cryonite system cools pure liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) to the extreme low temperature of -110 degrees Fahrenheit, transforming it into a dry ice vapor, or “snow.” Sprayed under pressure, this icy vapor penetrates the cracks and crevices where insects hide, freezing the fluids in their cells and causing instant death. Unlike traditional pesticides, Cryonite kills insects at all stages of development, including insect eggs.

Cryonite Advantages

  • Cryonite offers a number of distinct advantages over traditional pesticides:Cryonite’s CO2 snow is completely non-toxic, making it safe to use in sensitive environments such as schools, hospitals, restaurants and the food and drug industries.
  • Cryonite leaves no contaminating wet or gummy residues.
  • Pests cannot become resistant to Cryonite, making it effective against pesticide-resistant bed bug and cockroach populations.
