SOMERSET, N.J. — EcoRaider announced the results of new Rutgers University research that confirmed EcoRaider’s 14- day residual efficacy, and which EcoRaider says further underscores previous lab and field research that firmly established EcoRaider’s outstanding killing power for bed bugs. 

The lab report concluded that, “Both 7 and 14 days aged dry residues of EcoRaider were equally effective at 1, 3, 5, 7, 10, and 14 days after exposure. Both treatments caused 97.5 (± 1.5%) mortality at 14 days after exposure.” Read full report here

Previous research at Rutgers had showed that EcoRaider is “able to cause 100% mortality to bed bugs..." The study was published in Pest Control Technology in 2013.

With the resurgence of bed bugs over the past few years, bed bugs have shown increasing resistance to the newer class of pyrethroid and neonicotinoid based bed bug pesticides (Gordon et al 2014).

By contrast, EcoRaider provides a natural, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, alternative treatment for PMPs engaged in the escalating battle against bed bugs, EcoRaider says.

With its GRAS (Generally Regarded as SAFE) formulation, EcoRaider is thus appropriate for use under sensitive conditions such as in schools, hospitals and clinics, or where infants, the elderly or even pets are present, including fish or birds, according to EcoRaider. It is also hypoallergenic and non-staining. 

EcoRaider notes that the product’s overall safety and lack of toxicity to people and pets makes it a powerful primary treatment for any "green" or IPM program since it provides fast-kill and long lasting protection with minimum risk for pest control professionals and their customers alike.
