    Yes, contact kill only. Newer method in the US. Stern has been promoting it big time. From what I understand the UK stopped production because it wasn't effective. There has been studies done that some that were "frozen" b this (but maybe not directly hit???) ended up waking up and walking around after a few hours.....

    I thought that as a chemistry concept it was BS and after reading about amateur experiments with freezing and figuring that bedbugs can withstand maybe -15C to +50C and based on my own experiments and seeing the tenacity of bed bugs it seems really hokey.

    Also, I think that there's something unique about CO2 exhalation while asleep, either the rate or the smell. Someone who creates bed bug traps based on CO2 might know.
