CARSON, Calif. — Univar USA has agreed to distribute Pest Barrier’s Cimi-Shield “green bed bug eliminator” to pest management professionals (PMPs) across the U.S.

Univar Environmental Sciences operates more than 76 Univar Pro Centers and employs a team of talented entomologists and pest management experts.

Cimi-Shield is a water-soluble concentrate made of residulen, a soybean extract. The product kills bed bugs on contact and is applies with a pump sprayer. Cimi-Shield delivers 12 months of residual pest protection in cracks and crevices and on textile surfaces such as mattresses and box springs, carpet and drapes, and furniture, according to the manufacturer.

Cimi-Shield meets guidelines established by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), Section 25(b). Such products are exempt from pesticide registration by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and are “made from all GRAS (generally regarded as safe) ingredients.”

“With Cimi-Shield, PMPs can resume their rightful place as protectors of public health and guardians of the environment,” says Pest Barrier President Cameron Riddell.
