Many people envision bedbugs being snug and warm in their home cuddled up in the blankets just waiting for someone to slip between the sheets and become their late night buffet.
While this scenario is true, bedbugs aren’t limited to just mattresses. These bloodsucking pests are extremely mobile and will infiltrate a variety of items from luggage and backpacks to packed up boxes and your clothing.
Getting Rid of Bedbugs
While there are numerous over-the-counter bedbug sprays available, none are truly effective on exterminating bedbugs. And with limitations in the types of sprays that pest control services can use, bed bugs are on the march in building their population.
One way bedbugs can be eliminated is by freezing them. This procedure requires a specialized product know as Cryonite®. The bedbug freeze treatment takes the temperature down to very cold levels for rapid freezing.
This non-toxic method uses CO2 (carbon dioxide) that is transformed into dry ice-like snow. The snow is dispersed into the area using a machine. The bedbug freeze treatment is not poisonous and doesn’t contaminate the area. It works quickly by freezing the bugs and quickly killing them.
