How Does It Work?
Cryonite eliminates insects by freezing. The freezing process is extremely fast and reaches a very low temperature, which causes insects to die off quickly with contact. The cooling medium is carbon dioxide snow, which the Cryonite unit sprays from the specially designed and patented nozzle. Through an optimal combination of snow particle size and speed, the cooling is swift enough to make sure that any bugs, including eggs and larvae, will not survive.
What Items is it For?
This method works best with otherwise difficult-to-treat items like electronics – laptops, TVs, stereos, and more. Cryonite will not harm your valuables and is able to penetrate deep inside the tiny cracks and crevices of valuable machinery. When applied correctly, Cryonite is also a brilliant option for treating couches or other furniture that you are choosing not to fumigate.
What Else Must it Be Used With?
There will never be one silver bullet used singularly for treating a bed bug infestation. Cryonite works extremely well on certain items like machines and furniture, but when using Cryonite it is also necessary to use an eco-friendly pesticide that penetrates deep inside cracks and crevices within the wall, offering a residual effect. The combination of these two methods, along with drying all cloth items on high heat, will effectively combine to yield a successful treatment.
How Do I Know it is Safe?
Cryonite works by creating a carbon dioxide snow. This non-chemical approach is entirely safe for your family and pets. Because Cryonite works by physically freezing the insects, there exists no chance for the bed bugs to be able to build up a resistance to this method. Cryonite can be used safely in areas inhabited by family, including young children, pets and food. In addition, your personal items will remain as safe as people in your personal circle.
