NYC Prepares to Attack Bed Bug Epidemic

Today New York City announced the launching of a campaign to alert residents to the bed bug epidemic that is spreading through the city, even those parts inhabited by the rich and famous (see our January 14 post).

The NYC housing department will kick off the info campaign with a town hall meeting on January 28 in Washington Heights where residents have been fighting record outbreaks of the blood-sucking critters. Community forums will follow in other well-bitten neighborhoods: Astoria on February 5 and Bushwick, Brooklyn on March 12. Information on identifying, exterminating and preventing bed bug infestations will be provided in English and Spanish.

“Rich people get bedbugs and poor people get bedbugs,” City Councilwoman
Gale Brewer told the Daily News. “We need to overcome the stigma and create a
public outcry so people will know what to do when they get them.” Brewer has
sponsored a bill to create a city-wide bed bug task force. (Click here to read the whole article.)

New "Green" Pest Control Acts Instantly Without Poisons

People are excited about Stern Environmental Group’s new environmentally-friendly insect extermination treatment — Cyronite. We’ve had so many calls and orders for this revolutionary pest control system that we’re in the process of expanding this part of our business to meet the demand!

Cryonite uses pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) to rapidly freeze and kill insects and their eggs. It’s particularly effective on pesticide resistant bedbugs and hard-to-kill German cockroaches. Popularized in Europe and Australia but just introduced in the United States, the Cryonite system is only available from a select number of pest control companies, including Stern Environmental Group.

Cryonite system uses no toxic chemicals, making it is ideally suited for use in sensitive areas like homes, day care centers, hospitals, schools, nursing homes and restaurants. Cyronite’s instant kill action means that hotel and motel rooms can be rented immediately after treatment. Cruise ships can be treated with no scheduling delay for detoxification or clean up. The hospitality industry is showing major interest in Cryonite. The green pest control system maximizes occupancy rates and lowers down time for infected rooms.

Don’t Move Out When Roaches Invade! Cryonite to the Rescue!

Comedian Mark Malkoff moved into the Elizabeth, New Jersey IKEA store on Monday while his New York City apartment is being fumigated for cockroaches. If he’d just called Stern, he’d never have had to leave home.

Known for his 2007 video 171 Starbucks, the 31-year-old filmmaker dragged along a camera crew to document his week-long stay at the world’s most famous do-it-yourself furniture store. (Watch the video on While he’s been impressed with the spaciousness of his new IKEA bedroom suite (twice the size of his Queens apartment), he’s already run into a few snags: The sinks don’t work and the toilet is just a prop, as are the refrigerator, TV, washer and dryer. He’s showering in the staff locker room, cooking his meals in the staff cafeteria, and spending his days chatting up the customers. Of course, if his landlord had used Stern’s new Cryonite extermination system, Malkoff could have stayed home.

Cryonite is the green solution to effective pest control. Chemical-free and non-toxic it’s an environmentally friendly way to kill bugs that has proven particularly effective against nasty German cockroaches and pesticide-resistant bed bugs. The Cryonite system works by creating a penetrating carbon dioxide snow that vaporizes to penetrate cracks and crevices, under floorboards, behind baseboards, the undersides of furniture, behind appliances, inside bedding and box springs, and other hard-to-reach places where roaches and bed bugs hide and multiply. It freezes the bugs before they can scurry away and kills them — and unlike many pesticides, Cryonite is effective on bugs in all stages of development, including eggs.

Cryonite application produces no pesticide smells, messy wet residues or health implications. The CO2 used is food grade quality which presents no contamination risk. Click the post title for more information on Cryonite, the green solution to your pest problems.

Cryonite = Kryptonite for Bugs!

Cryonite is the newest, most innovative, non-toxic pest control system on the market. It’s the kryptonite of the pest world, felling even super bugs that are resistant to ordinary pesticides. Stern Environmental Group is proud to be one of the first pest control companies to bring this revolutionary pest control system to America. Used extensively in Europe and Australia, Cryonite uses rapid freezing to kill pesticide-resistant bed bugs and most other insects.

Unlike many traditional pesticides, Cryonite kills bugs in every stage of development. Bugs can’t hide from the pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) “vapor” that seeps into cracks and crawl spaces to knock bugs dead instantly. Cryonite has proved to be extremely effective in killing pesticide-resistant super bed bugs and tough-to-treat German cockroaches and their egg cases. Cryonite works by applying thin layers of pressurized CO2 “snow.” As the CO2 hits surfaces, it vaporizes, causing extreme instant cooling of any organism with which the gas comes in contact. In effect, it freezes the cells of insects, crystallizing the water in their cells on contact. The insect is instantly immobilized and it takes only moments for death to occur. Bugs cannot scurry away and escape Cryonite. For full details, click the post title.

Cryonite, It’s The Rapid Freeze That Kills

The key with Cryonite is not that it just freezes bed bugs, but it is the rapid freeze and incredibly low temperature that kills pests including bed bugs.

At the forum where we announced that we were providing bed bug extermination services, we got scoffs and disbelief from some of the participants saying that they have put bed bugs in their freezer and that they did not die or if they were frozen in time they just woke up again.

Well I am here to tell you that I don’t know of any freezer, even a sub-zero model, that can freeze to -35 °C that is equal to -25.6 °F. Cryonite can freeze to this level and does in seconds. Cryonite is applying carbon dioxide snow, that is dry ice snow. We all know that you do not touch dry ice it can freeze skin instantly how much more so with little bitty pests.

So on the topic of killing bed bugs with Cryonite, I say, freeze them dead! Let them suffer for all the pain that bed bugs have caused me and then die a horrible death, but death it is for them with a Cryonite treatment there is no waking up from that!
