I don’t know, “bedbug busters” sounds comforting to me.

Your post was on news on bed bugs and here’s some important news on bed bug treatments.

I wanted to let you know about a new treatment that is being offered for bed bug extermination – Cryonite.

Cryonite has been used widely in Europe and Australia to kill bed bugs and is now making its way into the US market. Stern Environmental Group in New Jersey and New York City is offering this new treatment.

The Cryonite treatment blows pressurized carbon dioxide snow into cracks, crevices, bedding, furniture and with temperatures way below freezing, causes rapid freezing of the environment stealing heat from bed bugs and causes the fluid in the cells to freeze; instantly killing bed bug AND eggs.

There is no liquid, this is a non-toxic treatment, and it is environmentally friendly. The food grade CO2 is recycled from industrial processes and does not add more CO2 to the environment.

What is really important is that bed bugs can ever develop a resistance to this treatment. When Cryonite is combined with other biochemical treatments you get an excellent kill rate and very little if any pest survival.

To find out more, you can read all the scientific information here If you are not located in New Jersey or New York City, do a Google search to see which other pest control companies may be providing Cryonite services in your area.

Cryonite is a revolutionary new treatment for bed bugs that may be the final answer for your difficult problem.

Thanks Nancy99.

We have indeed heard of Cryonite
. But we did not know you were using it at Stern.

I am pleased to hear this, and I appreciated reading the efficacy study you linked to, of a combined treatment with Cryonite and Diatomaceous Earth:

I wondered if your Cryonite treatment was accompanied by the application of DE or anything else? If not, is there any efficacy data on Cryonite alone, or do you plan to test it?

Obviously pricing can vary a great deal, but on the whole, do you feel that an apartment or house will cost more to treat with Cryonite than with traditional spraying?

Since we are always looking for a solution for “our difficult problem,” we look forward to hearing more.

Hmmm, apparently Nancy had already posted the same comment on the forum. More here.

(Note to Nancy: we Bedbuggers gobble up all comments and posts with abandon. No need to spam cross-post on different areas of the website, since we will see them.)

Its a shame I did not get a U tube copy of the CBBC footage to share with everyone. They spent a few hours in the warehouse getting all the facts straight and looking into it.

If I find a copy I will post it.
