Cost of Killing Bed Bugs Professionally Forcing Some Risky Alternatives Says

People Across The Country Don’t Know What To Do

Online PR News – 03-February-2011 – – The high cost of treating bed bugs professionally has forced people to turn to dangerous, do-it-yourself eradication methods, many of which are ineffective, according to nationwide steam cleaner marketer

Bed bugs are here, there and everywhere. The tiny pests are becoming commonplace in all places—from hotels and movie theaters to department stores and posh homes. People are spending thousands of dollars trying to control the meddlesome critters, but unlike the vampires in those teen movies, these bloodsuckers are real and they won’t just go away. Pesticides once nearly wiped out bed bugs fifty years ago, but the comeback-minded insect has developed resistance to many chemicals today.

“People across the country are bugging out and don’t know how to stop the sneaky hitchhikers,” V.K. Dunlop of explained today. “With more people expected to travel this year, many may bring bed bugs home with them. Almost no area is unbitten. Even the nation’s best hotels have become infested.”

Because treating bed bugs professionally is very expensive, people are turning to dangerous, do-it-yourself eradication methods. But chemicals that can eliminate bed bug infestations are rare and mostly ineffective, as bed bugs have developed immunity to certain chemicals used against them. To make matters worse, chemicals can’t reach bed bugs in every nook and cranny where they hide.

“Although a chemical called propoxur does work better than most, the EPA banned the highly toxic chemical for home use because it can seriously harm the nervous system of children,” says Dunlop.

Fortunately there’s a safe, fast, economical remedy that does not involve using toxic chemicals. It’s called a Ladybug steam cleaner.

Traditionally used to clean and sanitize surfaces without chemicals, professionals and consumers alike are discovering that Ladybug steam cleaners instantly eliminate bed bugs from clothing, bedding, furniture and structural areas like baseboards.

“More and more people are starting to realize that they don’t have to douse their homes in frightening chemicals,” says Dunlop. “If you use toxic chemicals to remove bed bugs from your home, what removes the toxic chemicals? These chemicals are linked to asthma, allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities.”

Ladybug steam cleaners convert ordinary tap water to high-temperature dry vapor steam between 245°F and 260°F. Bed bugs are and their eggs are rapidly killed when exposed to temperatures over 113°F. It’s a double plus because vapor steam particles are so small, they can reach cracks and crevices chemicals cannot.

With a vapor steam cleaner like the Ladybug 2200S steam cleaner, or the popular Ladybug XL2300 steam cleaner with onboard tool caddy, bed bugs have nowhere to hide and are a thing of the past. And because Ladybug steamers kill bed bugs right away, they can be more economical than chemical alternatives that can take numerous treatments.
