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.

Among the first to bring Cryonite to the U.S., Stern Environmental Group is expert in the use of this revolutionary new pest control method.

Plainfield, NJ Senior Complex Overrun by Bed Bugs, Cockroaches

On its website, the city of Plainfield, New Jersey in Union County bills itself as “a suburban treasure,” nothing that it attracts “people from many different lifestyles and backgrounds” who enjoy friendly, small town life. Unfortunately for residents of Richmond Towers, the city’s housing complex for low-income seniors, Plainfield also attracts bed bugs and cockroaches.

Operated by the Housing Authority of Plainfield, the 12-story senior housing complex is overrun by bed bugs and cockroaches, according to While admitting that some work orders may have been missed, building management said they have exterminated for bed bugs several times but can’t seem to get ahead of the infestation and speculated that residents may be bringing bed bugs into the building from senior centers.

The problems at Richmond Towers illustrate the difficult of exterminating bed bugs and cockroaches in apartment buildings. Building management typically relies on residents to prepare their apartments for treatment and clean their clothing and possessions to remove bed bugs and their eggs, an overwhelming task for many residents. If eggs or bugs are missed during cleaning and treatment, infestations can regrow quickly.

It takes persistence, a joint effort between management and residents and an expert licensed New Jersey bed bug exterminator to rid multi-family housing units of bed bugs. Cryonite offers a 2-for-1 punch, killing bed bugs and cockroaches instantly and safely. Visit our website to find out more.

Freeze Bloodsucking Bed Bugs With Cryonite

NY and NJ pest control professionals continue to receive calls from customers who are fed up with being nibbled on by blood thirsty bed bugs.  Recent studies have shown that using traditional bug bombs are disasterous when it comes to treating bed bug infestations.  Bug bombs do not reach into the cracks, crevices, mattresses, dressers, walls, electrical outlets, and all of the other locations where bed bugs hide. Once bed bugs detect the bug bomb pesticide, they quickly move in the opposite direction, spreading the infestation to other rooms or adjoining apartments, condos, hotel rooms, etc.
