Bed Bug Blog

Heat + Knowledge = Dead Bed Bugs


As humans we are all so interdependent on so many levels. We depend upon ready-made products for our everyday existence. If we have a problem, all you have to do is go online or to a local store to seek a solution.

But with these so-called solutions, if we dig a little deeper, comes a plethora of problems. Turns out, there not such good solution after all.


One of the biggies is the use of toxic pesticides that may kill a bug, but at what risk to our health, and our environment. You can find plenty of chemical toxins [1] labeled for use with bed bugs at any store nowadays.

The problem is, because of resistance problems, not only do they not work, they add insult to injury to the already toxic world we live in.


This is our stand on why we choose not to use or promote or use toxic pesticides.

Back in the 1940’s, DDT [2] was the promise to many insect-borne human disease problems. But little did they know, there were long-term, ill effects, on both human health and our environment.

They become aware of the fact that it accumulates in fatty tissues of the body and is remains very persistent in the environment. Meanwhile, as this was happening around us, we became part of this science project. How many of us were affected health wise by DDT over the years?

It took nearly three decades before it was banned for use in the US, yet concerns of residues from historical use still remain.

And the rabbit hole gets even deeper…


For decades, little known to the human population, we’ve been consuming foods grown in soils sprayed with toxic herbicides/pesticides (glyphosate), and eating foods grown from genetically modified seeds (GMOs). Yes, it’s in our food supply at your local grocery store.

Monsanto (merged with Bayer in June 2018) is the manufacturer of glyphosate also known as Roundup. They defend the safety of this product and publicize that it is “safe”.

This past August, they lost a law-suit to the tune of 289 million dollars because they failed to warn about of the “health hazards from exposure to glyphosate”. They were found responsible for “negligent failure” and the company knew that its product was “dangerous.”

How did this go so long without people knowing?

And now the verdict is out that it’s been discovered that GMO seeds produce plants that literally alters the human DNA. So, it’s no longer a question as to whether this process alters our food source, glyphosate poisons our soils and genetically altered seeds ultimately alters our human genome. I don’t know about you, but I would rather not allow anyone to mess with me or my family’s DNA.


How many of us have purchased Roundup off the shelves of our local stores to use on our very own properties? Do you know what is considered acceptable levels of harm? Of course not, you don’t because we are all a mass experiment.

Did you know that the runoff of glyphosate from growing fields is being found in our water supply and air? With the tons of this product being used worldwide, how long will it take before there are no clean areas free of this toxin?


In the forefront of biomedical research, this past June 2018, the EPA quietly passed a new pesticide that Monsanto and Dow created with RNA interference technology. (RNAi) [3] With the introduction of this RNA interference technologies [4], populations will be exposed to foods grown with the use of this technology.

(If you’re at all concerned in what this all means, please read these links).

And now, we’ll continue to be test subjects until they discover we’re dealing with far more dangerous risks of gene silencing than ever.

In a letter to the EPA, Brett Adee of the National Honey Bee Advisory Board said: “To attempt to use this technology at this current state of understanding would be naiver than our use of DDT in the 1950’s, and far more irresponsible given our recent history of failures in sustaining our environment alongside increased food productivity.”


In the past several decades disease have plagued more people than ever in the history of the world. Type ll diabetes affects over 35% of the people here in the US. Cancer is on the rise. Obesity is growing rapidly. And for the first time in history, it is anticipated that we are the first generation that our children will not outlive us.

We’re dealing with some pretty scary issues here that again, once we let the genie out of the bottle, how do we get her back? What will happen or what will they discover in a year, or like the DNA altering GMOs have already done. What will happen several decades from now as this new RNAi technology works its way precipitously through our future generations?

Are we willing to subject ourselves or our families to eating genetically altered foods only to find out that they were responsible for serious illnesses in our future?

A new report by the public-interest advocacy group U.S. PIRG [5]reveals that tests of five wines and 15 beers, including organic ones, found traces of the controversial weed killer glyphosate in 19 out of the 20.

So, as you can see, it’s not only the can of pesticide you buy, it’s in everything we eat, drink, personal care products we use, fabrics we wear, furniture, building materials and more.

What if, we all start to pay attention to what we are putting in our mouths, drinking, using on our bodies and in our homes and start saying, No!
