ODESSA, FLA.—Hasek Communications, the Odessa, Fla.-based publisher of Green Lodging News, has added an EcoRaider case study to its website. The case study details the results of a USDA study that measured performance of a green bed bug killer in infested housing apartments. Based on the field study by entomologists from Rutgers University, the report revealed that EcoRaider, a natural insect killer, shows strong effectiveness in eradicating bed bug infestations in housing apartments, comparable to a leading professional grade pesticide.
The field study was conducted in a high-rise public housing apartment building in New Jersey with a known bed bug infestation. EcoRaider and a top pesticide brand called Temprid SC were used side by side for means of comparison. After 12 weeks of evaluation on 24 treated apartments, the study concluded that both products are equally effective and “no significant difference was found” between EcoRaider and Temprid SC in the overall bed bug eradication rate. According to its label instruction, Temprid SC is a synthetic pesticide “hazardous to humans and domestic animals”. It is normally used by licensed pest management professionals.
EcoRaider was developed by Reneotech Inc, North Bergen, N.J. The company also supplies products to the professional pest management industry. EcoRaider was previously reported in the Entomological Society of America’s Journal of Economic Entomology as “the most effective natural bed bug killer” among 12 natural and traditional pesticides tested. It is a minimum risk pest control product exempted by EPA and may be used without restriction.
