Local Pest Control Company to Use New “Green” Product to Eliminate Bed Bugs on a Grand Scale
Industry leader North American Home Services (NAHS) has just announced that the termite, pest control and home inspections company will be using a new product called “Cimi-Shield” to eliminate bed bugs at the Park Place Apartments, a large senior housing complex in downtown Sacramento. Cimi-Shield, a “Green” pesticide product recently introduced to the pest control market, kills bed bugs and similar insects on contact and leaves a residual on fabrics and fibers that continues to eradicate these pests for up to one year.
Cimi-Shield has not been used for such a large-scale project as Park Place before, and NAHS is one of the only local pest control company offering its many benefits. “We’re very excited about this opportunity to demonstrate the superior effectiveness of Cimi-Shield in eliminating bed bugs on such a large scale,” says James Roe, pest control director. “Our company has built its reputation by providing our customers with the most effective and innovative methods while using environmentally responsible products.”
Park Place Apartments, located at 1230 N Street, directly across from Capitol Park, has 150+ units offering affordable housing for income-qualified seniors 62 and over and disabled 50 and over. In addition to the apartments, the complex features a lobby area, computer center, game room, library, and laundry facilities. North American Home Services will be treating the entire building to include private rooms, public meeting areas and office spaces.
Cimi-Shield with Residulen™ (a synthesized soybean oil) is a FIFRA 25(b) solution that kills bed bugs, cockroaches, ants, millipedes, carpet beetles, silverfish, fleas, and ticks (adults, nymphs and eggs) in just minutes after being applied directly to these pests. Cimi-Shield is generally regarded as
safe, does not stain fabrics, and has no smell. After treatment, Cimi-Shield’s residual will kill bed bugs for up to one full year on bedding, carpets, furniture, drapes, and other fabrics.
Cimi-Shield kills bugs mechanically by removing their waxy out layer, while other products only interfere with the insect’s body function. Some bugs have become immune to other chemical, non-mechanical treatments over time, but none are resistant to Cimi-Shield. In addition, other types of treatments do not leave a residual for continued protection, and they fail to kill all three stages of adults, nymphs and eggs.
North American Home Services (NAHS), a locally owned and operated company since 1978, is located at 4617 Auburn Boulevard, Sacramento, CA 95841.
