Chemical-Free Ladybug Vapor Steam Cleaners: Taking Aim at Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs And Their Eggs Are Rapidly Killed When Exposed To Temperatures Over 113°F

Online PR News – 08-June-2011 – – According to a survey released by the National Pest Management Association, one out of five Americans has had a bed bug infestation in their home or knows someone who has encountered bed bugs at home or in a hotel.

“The ‘Bed Bugs in America’ survey shows that people are taking the bed bug rebirth seriously and are changing their activities to steer clear of the bloodsucking pests,” V.K. Dunlop of, a leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaners, said today. “What we want to point out is that people don’t have to douse their homes in cancer-causing chemicals to kill bed bugs. Beg bugs and their eggs are rapidly killed when exposed to temperatures over 113°F.”

Because treating bed bugs professionally is expensive, many people are turning to dangerous, do-it-yourself eradication methods. But chemicals that can eliminate bed bug infestations are rare and by and large 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.

“A chemical called propoxur does work better than most,” says Dunlop. “But the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned propoxur for home use because it can seriously harm the nervous system of children.”

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 vapor steam cleaners instantly eliminate bed bugs from clothing, bedding, furniture and structural areas like baseboards.

“More and more Americans are starting to realize that chemicals are not the answer,” says Dunlop. “Ladybug steam cleaners convert ordinary tap water to 260°F dry vapor steam.”

Bed bugs can’t survive in heat 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 affordable Ladybug 2150 steam cleaner, or the popular Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner armed with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology, which qualifies the Tekno as a disinfection device for the EPA, 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.
