Bedbug Bonanza, Read this Now!

There has been a great deal of recent news coverage regarding bedbug infestation culminating with a summit last week in Washington, DC sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency. 

US officials are on the warpath against a new plague pouncing on unsuspecting Americans from cellphones, keyboards and mattresses — the humble bed bug now staging a comeback after two decades.

The tiny blood-suckers had all but vanished over the past 20 years, but now pose “the most difficult, challenging pest problem of our generation,” entomologist Mike Potter from the University of Kentucky told a conference.

“In my opinion, we are not going to get out of this thing” until we “allow the pest-control industry to go to war,” he warned.

The two-day meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday, dubbed the first National Bed Bug Summit by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), heard the insects are spreading rapidly, infesting all kinds of public buildings and spaces.

“We’ve never seen anything like this,” agreed Mike Deutsch, an entomologist with Arrow Exterminating, saying bed bug colonies were being found in lamp bases, clock radios, televisions as well as snuggled up in the pages of books.

 It appears that the resurgence of this nasty little critter is directly ties to the elimination of the use of DDT as a pesticide.  As you well know, DDT was outlawed due to the fact that it was determined an environmental hazard and was responsible for weakening the walls of the the egg shells of endangered species like the Bald Eagle. As a result, Bedbugs have been growing in numbers with no real effective pesticide available to kill them. 

We at CleanBrands took this as a direct threat to quality and sanctity of your sleep, we worked hard to engineer our mattress and pillow encasements effective in stopping bedbugs from entering our protective covers.  Then we had our products certified by ICR and tested over 8 weeks with live bedbugs to insure that even the tinniest bedbugs were unable to get through our fabric, seams and zipper openings.  The result is a 100% effective protective barrier allowing you to sleep with total security that no insect will enter our product and infest your mattress or pillow.  To show you our commitment to Protecting Your Sleep we are offering a fantastic promotion on our CleanRest® web site, a free box spring encasement for every mattress encasement purchased.

It’s a complicated question for many companies to answer, and in the ever changing global economy a company can find itself drifting away for its core values.  For me and the company and brand I founded CleanRest® our mission has never been clearer.  Clean Healthy sleep, allowing you to maximize every day by caring for you and your loved ones while you rest.  I never thought that inventing an allergy barrier fabric and transforming it into a simple mattress cover and pillow cover would profoundly affect so many people.  Just a few days ago I received a call from the mother of a young allergy sufferer who explained to me that for the first time in over a year, her child slep through the entire night without waking up to use his rescue medication.  As a result, the mother and the rest of her family got their first full night of sleep, they all feel better and that keeps our innovation engines motivated! 

As a company we feel that everyone deserves the dignity of a clean nights rest and we have worked hard to make our products available for free by donating our mattress and pillow allergy covers to a variety of local charities, like the Providence Rhode Island Ronald McDonald House as well as the Crossroads Shelter here in Providence.  Regardless of a person’s income, all should be offered the opportunity to experience a clean comfortable sleep, by making this a priority of your own family as well as your community everyone’s lives will become more productive and satisfying.  To that end I wanted to provide my readers with an offer to save 25% off on any purchase of CleanRest® products featuring MicronOne® technology, simply entering “garysblog” at check out.  Use this opportunity to invest in the health and wellness of your family and yourself.

Study finds blood-sucking critters’ resistance to insecticides increasing in urban areas

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 14 (HealthDay News) — A resistance to insecticides appears to be why bed bugs are making a comeback in some urban areas, a new study says.

Bed bugs in New York City, where infestations have grown in recent years, appear to have developed nerve cell mutations that weaken the effect of the pyrethroid toxins, such as deltamethrin, commonly used against them, according to a report in the current issue of the Journal of Medical Entomology. Such nervous system poisons normally would paralyze and kill the nocturnal blood suckers.

Toxicologists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Korea’s Seoul National University found that the New York City bed bugs are now as much as 264 times more resistant to deltamethrin than an easier-to-kill type of bed bug found in Florida.

“This type of pyrethroid resistance is common in many pest insects, and the failure of the pyrethroids to control bed bug populations across the United States and elsewhere indicates that resistance is already widespread,” senior researcher John Clark said in a University of Massachusetts news release.

The resistance appeared to be from the bed bugs’ having an insensitive nervous system, rather than their ability to better breakdown the poisons in their system, the researchers said.

While bed bugs feed on the blood of their host about every five to 10 days, they are not believed to spread disease.
