NORTH BERGEN, N.J., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EcoRaider, the pest control industry's top green solution for controlling bed bugs and other insects got rave reviews at a national public housing administrators conference in Las Vegas.
PHADA, the Public Housing Authorities Directors Association, held its annual convention in Las Vegas and EcoRaider was a central figure since it is widely used by public housing executives from around the country. EcoRaider was well received because it kills bed bugs quickly with minimum risk and environmental impact, giving housing authorities a ready-to-use product that delivers long-lasting performance with a fast control of the infestations.
Public housing is plagued by bed bugs. Tenants typically have a transient background, so they have been on the move more than most people and have a greater chance of coming into contact with bed bugs.
EcoRaider has helped public housing authorities control bed bugs quickly and effectively. Officials turn to EcoRaider because it kills fast and leaves a strong residual.
Debra Krueger is the Executive Director of The Mercer County Housing Authority in western Illinois. She depends on EcoRaider and considers it a powerful tool to protect the tenants of her public housing units.
"EcoRaider is a great product for us," Krueger said. "It's really important to have a green product because we have elderly and disabled residents. Not only has this worked for us in helping kill bed bugs and other insects but it has made my employees feel better. That's been huge for us."
New York is one of the areas of the country hardest hit by bed bugs. Robert Landry, Executive Director of The Glens Falls Housing Authority, uses EcoRaider to keep bed bugs from his tenants.
"It's big to us and we're tree huggers so we're environmental by nature. It's also a protocol that we bid that out every three years that they use chemicals that are environmentally friendly. We attempt to do that with everything we do and that's why EcoRaider is good as a green product. It works great for us."
Martha Carlson, Owner of Maritech Pest Control, uses EcoRaider when she protects The Brunswick Housing Authority in Brunswick, Georgia.
"We started used EcoRaider as a contact, quick knockdown type of application, mainly in areas where there were not enough bed bugs to warrant breaking out a vacuum cleaner. EcoRaider's knockdown is superb."
Studies have shown that bed bugs are developing a resistance to pesticides. In tough areas like public housing, having a product that delivers performance immediately is important. In 2014 USDA's IR4 PHP Program confirmed EcoRaider's performance in a field study by research entomologists for eradicating bed bug infestations in public housing buildings.
In addition to being a popular bio-insecticide with consumers, EcoRaider is used frequently in hotels, hospitals, cruise ships, multi-family, senior living and assisted-living facilities.
EcoRaider is a highly efficacious botanical-based broad spectrum bio-insecticide with proven effectiveness for bed bug control. It can be applied anywhere bed bugs are found without restriction. EcoRaider can be used in various settings, including schools, health-care facilities and public spaces.
