As the USA is now experiencing a bedbug epidemic it is more important than ever to remember that non-toxic pest control solutions can work even better than traditional chemical treatments.

The rise of non-toxic pest control solutions has been a scientific process and can be trusted says a new report from Planet Amazing. In the past, it was a common perception that poison was the only way to kill pests, but recent science has shown that insects can develop resistance to chemicals and render those treatments useless.
At one time in the USA during World War 1, massive amounts of DDT were used in homes to almost completely erradicate bedbugs nationwide. Since then, the dangers of such chemicals to children and pets have motivated scientists to look for other non-toxic solutions that can be used safely and still have good results to kill insects such as killing bedbugs. According to Justin Douglas of Planet Amazing, the new non-toxic solutions work and in most cases get better results while adhering to safety standards and being environmentally friendly. "For example, at our company Planet Amazing we are dedicated to finding scientific discoveries and solutions in nature, so all of our products are completely non-toxic and safe for children, people, pets and plants. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has rated our products as safe for use by the public. As the USA is now experiencing a bedbug epidemic it is more important than ever to remember that non-toxic pest control solutions can work even better than traditional chemical treatments."
This week Orkin released a report of the top 50 cities with the worst reports of bedbug infestations. The report rates the cities in comparison to each other but does not give statistics about the actual amount of increase. Other reports nationwide show a huge increase in bedbug infestations. For example, city health officials in New York City cite a 12,000% increase between 2009 and 2011 in the number of serious bedbug reports to the health department, according to CNN news.
Planet Amazing has a non-toxic and environmentally friendly product to treat bedbugs. Called "Bed Bug Shredder," there is a spray and then a kit of three different products that work together: spray, powder for the carpet and a laundry detergent additive.
"Bed Bug Shredder uses microcrystals in a powder that is completely safe for humans, pets and plants," Mr. Douglas explains. "But the microcrystals do get caught in insect skin and destroy the insect as it moves. So this is not a checmical, it is a simple mechanical solution. Rather than the old idea of dumping poison on everything, this is really an example of truly innovative science by solving this problem without the use of chemicals. The laundry additive is a non-toxic substance that with just a little bit will kill any bedbugs in clothing or bedding being washed. So this approach is safe for your children and pets."
"Exterminators can treat bedbugs for costly amounts between $600 to $5,000 for a house; however our products cost about $60," Mr. Douglas says. "So it is possible to do it yourself and save money too."
