In a year where bed bugs are making an alarming comeback, the need for pest control has never been so important.
Homes with pregnant women, small children, pets and family members with compromised health need to be extra careful, so “going green,” which until lately was not an alternative, is now the best solution to this pesky problem.
No longer do you have to pick between protecting your home and protecting your family. The pest control industry recently introduced a new method of killing bugs that threaten your home without doing the same to your family’s health.
Cryonite is kryptonite to insects. As Arthur Katz of Knockout Pest Control, the New York Metro area’s leading company using this new “green” technique, explains, “It kills bugs using a freezing process that reaches a very low temperature at ‘warp’ speed.”
“Basically it’s carbon dioxide snow,” Katz continues, “or as it is most commonly known, dry ice. It goes from this snow medium directly into gas without a liquid phase, which then allows applications in hazardous areas such as electrical cabinets, sockets and motors, as well as kitchens, nurseries and hospital rooms.”
Using the perfect amalgamation of snow and speed, the freezing is rapid enough to guarantee that bugs, including eggs and larvae, will be annihilated. The dispensing unit is ergonomically designed, with a “goose-neck” feature and telescope function for an extensive reach that can be turned 90° or more for best angles, and for the technician, a natural working position. This innovative design was created so that the Cryonite can pierce deep into cracks and crevices, as well as intricate machinery and so it can be applied the entire length of pipes.
Knockout Pest Control is a leader in the “Go Green” movement “not because it’s the “in” thing to do but because it’s the right thing to do. Offering our clients this ‘green’ alternative gives their homes and businesses a carefree solution to their pest control issues,” Katz said.
This new, non-poisonous method has numerous advantages including the ability for families and office workers to return immediately after an extensive treatment although the evacuation of a treated area is really not necessary. In the restaurants business, Cryonite can be applied while production continues in adjacent areas and can even be used directly on surfaces where food is prepared because chemical b...
