New York City Bed Bugs are resistant to pyrethroid insecticides

University Study Reports : New York City Bed Bugs are resistant to pyrethroid insecticides.  Bed Bugs which was mostly eradicated, but have outsmart the current Chemicals and insecticides called Pyrethroids… mainly deltamethrin.

This study states that in urban areas like New York City, the chemicals or insecticides used are shown to be ineffective. The failure to control these blood – sucking pests is evident and toxicologists have shown that some bed bugs have developed resistance to Pyrethroid Neurotoxins. In the past spraying pyrethroid Toxins was effective because these Nervous system poisons paralyzed these bugs and killed them, but this is no longer the case, because these bugs have developed resistance to these Nervous System Poisons. Resistance means mutations are acquired over time with Pyrethroids, which resulted in neuronal pores no longer respond to the toxic effects of such pyrethroids. Toxicologists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Korea’s Seoul National University show that these pores in New York City bed bugs are now as much as 264 times more resistant to deltamethrin.

The researchers are not sure how widely this resistance has spread, that is, whether the bugs that infest hotels, apartment buildings and homes in places other than New York City have developed the same type of immunity to chemical control. But as Clark notes, “This type of pyrethroid resistance is common in many pest insects and the failure of the pyrethroids to control bed bug populations across the United States and elsewhere indicates that resistance is already widespread. The researchers are not sure how wide spread this resistance is, whether the bed bugs that are resistant are common in Hotels, Motels, Hostels, Homes, Apartment complexes only in New York city or such Pyrethroid resistant bugs are also in other states. Immunity to chemical control may be widespread due to the fact that this type of pyrethroid resistance is common in many pests, insects, parasites and also the failure of the pyrethroids to control bed bug populations in many other States indicates that resistance is already widespread. The researchers collected hard-to-control bed bugs from New York City, plus easy-to-control bed bugs from an untreated Bed Bugs in Florida, The New York Bed Bugs was determined to be highly resistant (264 times more resistant) to deltamethrin compared to the Florida Bed Bugs by contact exposure. They found that resistance was not due to the increased breakdown of Pyrethroid chemicals (in this case deltamethrin) by the resistant bed bugs but appeared to be due to an insensitive nervous system.

We like to take this opporchunity to comment that our Bed Bug control products do not attack the nervous systems of the BUGS but either clog the breathing pores of the insects on their body or force them to molt. Thus it is safe to us, our children & pets plus Bugs cannot develop resistance to our Non Toxic and Organic products.

PET MEDS SPAWN MITES

THE USE OF PET MEDS MAY LEAD TO PARASITE INFESTATIONS

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Mite infestations of pets, structures and subsequently a human host have increased dramatically in the last few years. What was once viewed as a phenomenon now appears to be a  everyday occurrence. The application of PET MEDS or commonly known Flea or Spot Drops to the neck of your pet often result in a internal skin parasite issue in your pet and yourself. Fiprinol, Permethrins and other toxins wicked systemically into the animals blood stream result in the creation of a compromised immune system prohibiting the pets body from resisting attack from these wicked internal parasites. Once identified as a host, the mites will attack the dog or cat with overwhelming vigor. Additional mite populations are propagated and in a short period of time the animal and the structure is the recipient of a full blown mite infestation.

The COLUMBELLA MITE is a microscopic parasite found in the air and on all surfaces.  They are introduced to the body through the lungs and subsequently into the blood stream where they are destroyed by the liver as the blood is filtered through the bodies organs. When the pets immune system is compromised with the PET MEDS  its filtering organs cease to function properly and subsequently the blood carried mite will migrate into the epidermal layer of the skin through the blood stream capillaries. When the animal can no longer support the mite population it is hosting, the parasite will adopt another host within the structure. This is normally the care giver or the closest person to the animal. Often this is a chemically imbalanced or less healthy individual that may itself have a over-reactive or compromised immune system.

Once infested with the parasite a persons normal life style is totally disrupted. Constant biting and itching sensations and subsequent eruptions of the skin become debilitating and difficult to endure. The mites will attack the individual from the inside and the outside.  Visual contact is next to impossible and medical diagnosis from the majority of the medical community is wrongfully that of parasitic psychosis. Treatment requires fogging or fumigation of the structure and applications of the MITICIDE, a low molecular weight silicone fluid carrier and modified essential oil of the juniperus virginiana tree (cedar) to the human and animals body. 

Internal relief can be obtained with properly dosed regiments of Stromectol, a prescription drug used for eradication of internal parasites. Reduction of the mite population within the structure and surrounding areas and on the human and animals body surface is the first step in elimination of this horrible dilemma. Once this is accomplished and the intake of the parasite is minimized, the mammals body will resume its normal eradication of the COLUMBELLA mite. PET MEDS should be immediately discontinued from any animal health protocols practiced.  Immune system elevating foods and vitamins should be utilized.
