Why is Cryonite So Deadly to Bed Bugs and Other Pests?

As insecticide-resistant pests become increasingly more common, NJ pest control experts remain on the lookout for new pest control treatment systems. Safe and nontoxic, Cryonite is among the most effective on the market.

How Does Cryonite Work?

Used extensively in Europe and Australia, Cryonite eliminates hard to kill pests such as bed bugs and German cockroaches in all life stages, including eggs, by freezing them to death on contact. Applied with a Cryonite machine, a spray of liquid CO2 (carbon dioxide) creates cold, dry ice, crystalizing pests and stopping them in their tracks.

Say Goodbye to Messy Chemical Sprays

Nontoxic and nonpoisonous, Cryonite leaves behind no wet or sticky residues. At normal temperatures, it simply evaporates. Recycled from industrial processes, it’s a green treatment solution.

Pesticide Resistant Pests Don’t Stand a Chance

Cryonite is an effective treatment for even the most challenging insect infestations, penetrating deep within cracks, crevices, and furnishings where insects hide. Because Cryonite is chemical-free, there’s no risk of pests developing a resistance to pest control measures.

Sensitive Individuals and Workspaces Are Safe from Chemicals

Even for the most sensitive individuals and environments, CO2 presents no risk of contamination or adverse health effects.

Better known for patrolling NYC area subways and communities in their efforts to thwart crime, the legendary Guardian Angels are now tackling the NYC’s 4-legged foes – rats. Rodent control has become big news as of late, given a small but deadly bacterial outbreak back in December that was linked to leptospirosis, which is found in rat urine.

The Plan to Run-Off the Rodents?
Cats. To combat this age-old city problem, feral cats are being established in vacant land areas citywide, aimed at reducing problem areas overrun by rodents. The territorial creatures have been surmised to be an ideal solution for reducing rodent population, and likewise being kept in check and cared for with spay/neuter services, vaccinations, and necessary food and shelter.

The Cat’s Meow
The Guardian Angels are now overseeing 10 colonies of cats in the city, ranging from Astoria to Howard Beach, stating these colonies are a win-win for the city. The kitty commandos – about 150 total, may soon be embarked on a new mission at 750 Grand Concourse, the Bronx building identified as ground zero for the leptospirosis outbreak. Other area residents looking for help have been encouraged to contact the group.

See your options with Personalized Treatment.

Where there are people, there are pests. You want to protect your customers and employees from the risks that come along with pest infestations. Doing so is a task that is best handled by trained professionals. Here are a few things you should look for when choosing a commercial pest control service for your business.


All NYC commercial pest control service providers must comply with state and local laws. At the minimum, you want to be sure a provider is properly licensed and experienced in your area. Verify their license is current and review comments from past customers.

Treatment Methods

Pests are elusive, persistent, and procreate rapidly. You want a company that uses innovative, effective, and environmentally-friendly treatment methods that keep your business pest-free without creating an unsafe environment for your employees and guests.

Technicians may use chemicals for treatment. They should explain why they use certain methods and if there are any possible adverse effects or non-chemical options.

Personalized Service

Each business is unique. The best treatment program for a small restaurant is not right for a large furniture warehouse or hotel. Your technician should conduct a detailed inspection of your location and provide you with a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
