The Bedbugs (or bed bugs) are blood-sucking (haematophagous) insect, which feeds mainly on human blood, and for this reason especially infests our bedrooms.
Our ecological solution
Why preferring liquid nitrogen to traditional pesticides?
The treatment with liquid nitrogen, which has the ability to penetrate matter, ensures the extermination of all parasites with its extremely low temperature.
Treatment with liquid nitrogen
Ecological: Nitrogen is the primary component of air (79%). It has been used for a long time for the preservation of foods and other food applications.
Safe: Our operators are specialized and well trained for the proper use of the LN System and PPE (personal protective equipment).
Effective: The gaseous state produces a cloud with a temperature of -120 °. 100% mortality of all types of pests and their eggs.
Economic: There is not need to throw or change any furniture. Liquid Nitrogen leaves no residue. So everything can be reused immediately after the treatment. No preparation is needed neither before nor after the treatment. The environment treated is immediately habitable, without any smell and zero-level of toxicity.
How to check for bed bugs
Carefully inspect all points suitable to host an outbreak of infestation looking for adults, eggs, nymphs and the remains of the insect’s moulting.
Often bed bugs defecate near their hiding places: faecal stains are dark in color, round in shape (from 1 to 5-6 mm) and give off a tipical foul smell.
How to eradicate bed bugs
It is totally useless to intervene with Do-It-Yourself methods or with Companies that use pesticides since the eggs are so resistant to any type of pesticide, even the most professional. By so doing, several operations would be necessary to get rid of the infestation. This would result in a massive dose of pesticides in the places where we stay and sleep with the failure to solve the problem.
The only truly effective and guaranteed system is the Cryogenic method, with the usage of Liquid Nitrogen supplied at high pressure, much more powerful than Carbon Dioxide and Dry Steam.

Size: 6-8 mm (full adult)
Infested environments: houses, hotels, guesthouses, hostels, community, transportation (planes, trains, buses, ships)
Bed bugs are insects belonging to the order of the Heteroptera (Heteroptera) and the family of “cimidae.” They have the typical shape like “a heart in the chest” (oval and flattened when fasting) and two pairs of wings (elytra) virtually absent (strongly reduced to small oval scales or absent altogether).
The head is short. The rostrum (tipical of Hemiptera) is turned into a rather short sting extended to the head. The color is translucent brown when fasting, dark red when it is full of blood.
The female can measure 6-8 mm in length (the male is smaller). It is not a solitary insect but tends to live in mixed communities of males, females and immature stages, never too far away from their guests.
The females after a blood meal (it takes roughly 3 to 5 minutes but can even last for 10 minutes and suck the blood equal to 7 times its own weight) retreat to their hiding places, digest the meal and lay eggs. In 2-3 months they lay 200-300 eggs, protected by a very resistant shell.
Bedbug bite is not actually felt. Rather it is the following skin reaction to be felt, consisting of very itchy papules which can occur even after 9 days after being bitten.
They feed and move at night. They are guided by their sense of smell and the temperature of the body of the sleeper (temperatures around 35 ° C). Since they do not like the smell of all people, some are preferred over others. They climb on the bed and run quickly (they are “fast runners”) where the skin is thinner and better supplied with blood as the wrists, neck, ankles, not forgetting the shoulders and face.
