Pest Barrier Introduces Green Bed Bug Killer

Bed bugs

Cimi-Shield kills bed bugs on contact, leaves residual that will kill for up to 12 months, company says.

| July 31, 2012

CARSON, Calif. - Pest Barrier has introduced Cimi-Shield, a product that kills bed bugs on contact, the company announced.

Cimi-Shield leaves a non-smelling, non-staining, non-toxic residual in cracks and crevices, and on textile surfaces like mattresses, furniture, drapes and carpeting that will kill for up to 12 months in managed sanitation sites, Pest Barrier said.
 
Cimi-Shield is available in two formulations: Knock-Out, for active infestation, and Protect, for sites where there is constant pressure such as healthcare facilities, hotels or dressing rooms. Cimi-Shield is not recommended for hard surfaces because the insects cannot make effective body contact with the residual, the manufacturer said.
 
Cimi-Shield is non-toxic, FIFRA 25 (b) exempt. The active ingredient, ResidulenTM, is derived from soy bean oil and dissolves the cuticle of the insect. Because it acts mechanically and is not dependent on entering through a receptor site, it is not believed to contribute to resistance, Pest Barrier said.
