LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether traveling domestically or internationally this holiday season, today's travelers to do list might well include a new item—bed bug spray. Avoiding the painful red, itchy bites or encountering chemical-laced pesticides and, perhaps, unknown side effects in a "treated" hotel room have become growing problems.
In a May 2015 study conducted by the National Pest Management Association and the University of Kentucky, 64 percent of pest professionals reported that bed bug infestations continue to be on the rise and 74 percent encountered these pests in hotels and motels.
Inventor and Pacific Shore Holdings, Inc. (PSHR) CEO Matthew Mills founded his green-oriented products firm to address consumers' increasing desire for 100 percent natural, safe and effective solutions. Nature-Cide® offers a 2 oz, 2 oz twin pack and 8 oz travel bed bug spray options that are stain-free and have a pleasant aroma. The formulation of Nature-Cide bed bug spray includes clove and cotton seed oils.
"While we offer products that stop a variety of pests from cockroaches, ants and flies and as well as repelling rodents and reptiles, the response has especially enthusiastic for our various bed bug solutions. This provides an important layer of comfort in a number of environments especially when traveling regardless of whether the hotel is one or five stars. Many travelers unwittingly bring bed bugs back home when these uninvited guests hitch a ride in their luggage," Mills said.
The survey also revealed that bed bug infestations continue to be the most difficult pest to treat including cockroaches, ants, and termites.
"Our commercial products offers hotel, motels, hostels, vacation rental businesses and others the ability to simply spray an individual room, let it dry and it is ready for occupancy often within hours. No need to take a room out of availability for a week or more or wonder if there might be residual effects in that or adjoining rooms. For the traveler, we offer 2 and 8 ounce travel spray," Mills said.
The possible effects of toxic pesticides have been well-documented - most notably when a family visiting a luxury resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands was exposed to the pesticide ethyl bromide which was sprayed on a lower unit not their own. The father and two sons suffered seizures two weeks after their visit.
Mills offered these tips to travelers:
One: When you check in, ask the front desk about their policies for non toxic treatment of their rooms (you can ask for a copy of their recent records).
Two: If you have any concerns, get friendly with housekeeping and gently inquire about how your room is maintained.
Three: Check your bed mattress when you arrive looking for any signs of beg bugs or their skins and feces--bed bugs hide in the seams of the mattress as well as the box spring. Visual inspection does work.
Four: Spray with a non-toxic product like Nature-Cide Bed Bug or All-Purpose formulas, a non-toxic, 100 percent natural remedy.
Five: Spray your suitcase(s) and other carry ons whenever arriving via airplane, automobile or train. A traveler should also spray around the perimeter of all pieces of luggage right after packing.
