Recognizing climate change in electricity network design

Heavy snow over the Italian Dolomites in late 2013 left tourists enduring an extended blackout in one of Europe’s most exclusive winter resorts. Then, in spring 2015, central Italy was hit by a major storm with over a meter of snow combined with strong winds that left over 200,000 customers without power for hours.

STORM DAMAGE TO INFRASTRUCTURE STRAINS POWER NETWORK

December 1, 2021 | Teboho Setena

Power supplier Eskom is counting the costs relating to bad weather damaging infrastructure in the southern Free State.

These costs include repairs after a storm wreaked havoc on the night of Tuesday, 23 November, affecting power supply.

Stefanie Jansen van Rensburg, spokesperson for Eskom, said about 67 poles in these areas fell over and that outages affected both customers in town and those in rural areas.

“More than 1 500 conductors on different feeders were damaged during the storm, affecting more than 250 rural customers – and the town of Jagersfontein was left without supply,” said Jansen van Rensburg.

She said the storm, bringing heavy rains, made access problematic for Eskom technical teams that battled wet and muddy terrain to repair and restore supply.

Jansen van Rensburg said the supplier was yet to quantify the costs arising from the bad weather.

Members of the public are urged to report overhead power cables that have been damaged, have collapsed or are low-hanging as a result of stormy weather conditions, vandalism and illegal connections.

“Such cable can be life-threatening to people or animals who come into contact with it,” said Jansen van Rensburg.

Such increasingly frequent weather extremes across the globe raise the question of how best to deal with events that severely impact energy systems.

Projections about climate change indicate that power systems will be exposed to ever-increasing threats that have the potential to jeopardize continuity and quality of supply. This leads to the question: how best to deal with heightened risk?

Impact of climate change, infrastructure, damage to overhead wires is common these days. Among the threats that impact overhead lines, perhaps the most critical is ‘wet snow’. Wet snowfalls are characterized by snowflakes with high liquid water content (LWC) that adhere easily to the external surface of conductors and ground wires. 

Therefore, cables are laid under the ground. These cables may be attacked by several species of rodents, rats, termites, ants, or gophers.

There are different methods used to lay cables in electrical systems. Normally in the electrical system, most of the high voltage cables are laid under the ground. The cables can be installed in ducts.

While utmost precaution is taken while installing the best available cables in the market, one major point to be considered is the pest attacks on these cables.

The fact about all rodents is that they have incisors that never stop growing. They gnaw continuously to keep their choppers in check. Otherwise, their teeth would grow to such an impractical length that they would starve and die. Insects such as termites and ants equally contribute to damaging cables. When termites encounter a cable, in addition to biting, they also secrete formic acid, which severely corrodes the cable insulation and sheath, causing the cable insulation performance to decline or even short-circuit. Therefore, in the laying regulations formulated by the cable use department, there are clear provisions on anti-termite measures for cable lines.

Our products Rodrepel™Termirepel™, and CombirepelTM are one of a kind. Rodrepel™ can be described as a rodent aversive, while Termirepel™ is a termite and insect aversive, while CombirepelTM works on the combined mechanism of Rodrepel™ and Termirepel™ and acts like a rat, insect, animal, and bird aversive.

The product is available in the form of masterbatches and can be incorporated into various base polymers. But this product is even much more than that. It works on the mechanism of repellence. It does not kill the target species that are rodents and other pests but only repels them.

These Masterbatches can produce a cable based on HDPE or PVC and other polymers at 1/3rd the cost, against cables produced with other Engineered Polymers like Nylon or bulky armored cables.

This product also has a very good shelf life and does not leach out in the environment, thus being totally safe for usage. Last but definitely not least this product is also stable at high temperatures.

We also have topical applications like liquid concentrate, lacquer, and sprays that can be used near and over-installed near applications. But the use of masterbatch incorporated cables is highly recommended for underground applications.

So basically, this product is low toxic, low hazardous, and completely eco-friendly. And when the world needs a greener solution for each and every aspect of life, this product comes as a breath of fresh air.

Our products are REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), RoHS2 and RoHS3, APVMA, NEA – Singapore compliant, and are also FIFRA (Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act) exempted. Ours are the first and only products in the world that are compliant with European Union’s Biocidal Product Regulation (EU BPR).

Environmentally safe and leach free pest repellent additives for cable application

Many plastic products contain hazardous chemicals that can leach into the surroundings.

Plastics exist in many different chemical compositions and are widespread in society and the environment. Global annual production of plastics has doubled over the past 15 years. The plastic polymers are not regarded as toxic, but there may be toxic residual chemicals, chemical additives, and degradation products in the plastic products that can leach out as they are not bound to the plastic polymer.

Environmental, health, and safety concerns with the basic raw materials used in manufacturing coated wire and cable are driving innovation and change in the industry. These concerns include the life cycle impacts of heavy metals such as lead, brominated flame-retardants, and resin systems, plasticizers, stabilizers, fillers, colorants, etc.

Addressing the various environmental, health, and safety issues of coated wire and cable is not a simple and straightforward process. However, the process of developing and using cleaner alternatives has already begun, spurred by European legislative changes and customer demands.

One major component that has gained a huge demand in recent times is the use of anti-rodent, anti-pest additives. These additives prevent the wire and cable application from pest attacks and thereby help the application in achieving desired longevity.

Although the cost of such compounds is said to be a barrier, the use of pesticides in cable manufacturing has come to attention and that is definitely not an option to non-toxic rodent and pest additives for polymers. 

Pesticides are not designed for polymeric applications and they are definitely not designed for use as a masterbatch as they pose problems during processing via extrusion and also on account of leachability, compatibility, and toxicity.

They have an extremely low thermal stability thus volatilize easily during the manufacturing processes.

These hazardous substances or their degradation products can be released during all phases of the plastic life cycle. This is an unwanted situation for the manufacturer, since the leaching of additives shortens the polymer lifetime, but is certainly harmful also to humans and the environment.

8 MILES OF LEAD-LADEN CABLES REPORTEDLY LEACHING INTO LAKE TAHOE, COURT RECORDS SHOW

November 24, 2021

MICHELLE ROBERTSON

Approximately 8 miles of old Pacific Bell cables are allegedly leaking lead into the waters of Lake Tahoe, and the company has agreed in a lawsuit settlement to remove the old, unused cables, court records show. 

Earlier this month, the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of California’s waters, received a settlement in a lawsuit it filed in January in the United States District Court against AT&T subsidiary Pacific Bell.

The cables have been in disuse since the 1980s, when Pacific Bell switched to fiber optic cables, the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance said in a press release. They were discovered by local divers working to remove garbage from Lake Tahoe. 

The nonprofit estimates that the cables contain 63 tons of lead — or 3 pounds of lead in each foot. 

“While the amount of lead the cables have leached into Lake Tahoe is unknown, attorneys for CSPA found that three feet of cable left for one day in a tub of Lake Tahoe water leached 4800 times the amount of lead allowed to enter a source of drinking water,” the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance said in the press release. 

Contamination caused by hazardous substances is a major environmental concern. As mentioned earlier, this issue is addressed by a number of EU legislative measures and policies and the rest of the world needs to take some similar actions before it’s too late.

Our products Rodrepel™Termirepel™, and CombirepelTM are one of a kind. Rodrepel™ can be described as a rodent aversive, while Termirepel™ is a termite and insect aversive, while CombirepelTM works on the combined mechanism of Rodrepel™ and Termirepel™ and acts like a rat, insect, animal, and bird aversive.

Repellents to reduce cable gnawing by rats and other pests

With billions of people now online, working, collaborating, and connecting, the need for faster connectivity influences more and more fiber optic cable designs and installations globally.

But, having faster connectivity will only go so far if the integrity of the cable is compromised by damage. Cables placed in outside plant or harsh environment applications are designed to endure the extreme challenges associated with temperature fluctuations, crush and impact, tensile loading, and even immersion or burial applications. Yet, surprisingly one of the biggest threats to fiber optic cable signal integrity no matter if the install is outdoors, underground or in the interior of a building or home, is rodents chewing on cables to whittle down their incisors hence damaging the fibers within.

Optical cables may be attacked by several species of rodents e.g. rats, water voles, martens, squirrels, or gophers. Also, other animals may attack cables e.g. termites, ants, woodpeckers (aerial cables), or arctic foxes (in Greenland).

Many projects require that optical-fiber cables be installed in ducts inside and outside of buildings. While the designer will tell you that this level of protection is necessary to protect against mechanical abuse, none of them can assure you that this will protect the cables from rodent and pest attacks.

The fact about all rodents is that they have incisors that never stop growing. They gnaw continuously to keep their choppers in check. Otherwise, their teeth would grow to such an impractical length that they would starve and die. Insects such as termites and ants equally contribute to damaging cables. When termites encounter a cable, in addition to biting, they also secrete formic acid, which severely corrodes the cable insulation and sheath, causing the cable insulation performance to decline or even short-circuit. Therefore, in the laying regulations formulated by the cable use department, there are clear provisions on anti-termite measures for cable lines.

The acid secreted by insects can destroy the hardest engineering plastics such as Polyamide 12.

These pests have succeeded in bringing the nation’s defence activities to a still. Whether it’s a groundhog causing an emergency shutdown at Pentagon, or the Israel army struggling with rat-infested military bases, these pests have managed to find their way everywhere.

More than 60% of the short circuits are caused by rodents or termites damaging the sheath of the cable. The squirrel is a bigger threat to cybersecurity than hackers. They are a major cause of power outages worldwide. They have been successful in leaving the U.S. Navy base with disrupted communication in the past. Birds like cockatoos have wreaked havoc on Australia’s Broadband service resulting in a damage bill of 80,000 dollars.

Rodent damage to communication cables is more than just a nuisance, as it can result in costly repairs and service interruptions.

One such recent incidence is as below:

Chaos as 1,800 homes left without internet after rats chew through cables

Openreach engineers are still working to resolve the issues which have seen 1,800 households in the Torridge area of Devon go without phone or internet connection

19 Oct 2021

Nearly 2,000 homes were left without any phone or internet connection after rats reportedly chewed through the network cables over the weekend.

The blackout hit residents in the Torridge area of Devon with engineers for Openreach – a provider for BT, Vodafone, Plusnet and Sky – working to resolve the issue.

However, the company has given no estimated time on when the matter might be resolved.

Households in Bideford, Clovelly, Hartland, Horns Cross, Parkham and Woolfardisworthy are all understood to be affected, reports DevonLive.

The disruption comes a week after Torridge households suffered a 22-hour outage between October 9-10.

AT&T investing millions to bury fiber-optic cables damaged in Ida

By KATC News

Posted Oct 20, 2021

AT&T is investing tens of millions of dollars to strengthen its network in Louisiana against hurricanes and tropical storms by burying fiber-optic lines in some of the areas hit worst by Hurricane Ida.

The project’s primary focus will be in parts of the Bayou parishes and in and around the New Orleans area, including Jefferson, Lafourche, Orleans, St. Charles, St. James, and Terrebonne Parishes. AT&T plans to complete a majority of the work this year, with the project expected to be complete in the first half of 2022.

Hurricane Ida’s 150 mph maximum sustained winds caused multiple cuts to key fiber-optic lines in storm-impacted areas, according to AT&T. The network connects businesses and residents in communities statewide and provides critical backhaul for AT&T’s wireless network. The new project will help enhance network resiliency in future storms, AT&T said.

Such statistics are scary and dizzying. It gives the people a feeling of hopelessness and sleepless nights. As many methods are used by different authorities to curb the infestations of these rodents, we at C Tech Corporation have also come up with viable methods.

Our products Rodrepel™, Termirepel™, and Combirepel™ are one of a kind. Rodrepel™ can be described as a rodent aversive, while Termirepel™ is a termite and insect aversive, while CombirepelTM works on the combined mechanism of Rodrepel™ and Termirepel™ and acts like a rat, insect, animal and bird aversive.

Bed bugs in the library

Bedbugs are very minute and can be hidden anywhere and since it becomes hard to detect at the early stage of infestation. They hide in the cracks and the crevices. There is the urban myth about bedbugs that they cannot occur in plastic and metal equipment and there is no design, furnishing or material that is resistant to bedbugs. Bedbugs are present on any surface that contains cracks and crevices can provide a harbor for them and making it difficult to detect.

When bedbugs invade libraries and other locations or places where people do not sleep, the nocturnal bedbugs look to feed on people rather than feeding them at night time. Since we all know that a pair of bedbugs can multiply in a short period of time with the large infestation.

There are people entering the libraries on a daily basis where the bedbugs get the opportunities to enter the library and to eat as well as to migrate. The fact that people prefer coming to the library because of the silence and space they get for a long period of time but in the library, the reading tables provide these wingless insects significant opportunities to feed.

The bedbugs carry the greatest risk as the books are returned to the library from all sorts of residences and situations, and therefore the bedbugs can infest the building itself, moving from books to the furniture.

Let us have a look at the evidence,

Bed bug infestation forces Hudson library to temporarily close

HUDSON, Fla. – The Hudson library says it is temporarily closed due to a bed bug infestation. The library located at 8012 Library Road is expected to be closed for 1-2 weeks for fumigation treatment. 

According to the library, staff discovered the bugs in an isolated area of the building two weeks ago. The county used a pest control contractor to begin isolated treatments, but the treatments were not successful, so it decided to close the building a do a full fumigation.

Health officials say bed bugs are not dangerous, but their bites can cause discomfort or an allergic reaction in some people.

Bed Bugs Complaint Closes Milpitas Library       

MILPITAS, CA — The library will remain closed for at least another day upon receiving a report last week from a patron about possible bed bugs in the Santa Clara County facility.

The library told its Facebook readers it ordered an inspection and received information that “localized activity” was detected. This means bed bugs were discovered.

As a precaution, the library will remain closed until the facility has been treated and the issue eliminated.

Termites turn rare books history

Garima Mishra ,  Pune, Sun July 10 2011

Nibhandh Mala written by Vishnu Krishna Chiplunkar in 1917 is a rare book, not available in the market. The only copy of the book available in the 60-year-old Government Divisional Library at Vishrambaug wada may soon end up in the gullets of termites.

Termites have partially eaten its pages. Other rare books like Puratatva Vidya (1976) and Gopal Vishnu Tulpule’s Aristotalchaya Pashchat (1968) are on the verge of being fed by termites, the result of staff shortage, lack of space and neglect. The library houses around 2.5 lakh books on varied genres; poetry, novels, drama, biographies and autobiographies.

Libraries need to develop plans in advance of any infestation.

Instead of using the conventional control measures, we can make use of our products which does not kill the pests but repels.

The usage of pesticides have detrimental effects on human health and cause harmful diseases so instead of using outdated control measures we can make use of our product, our product Termirepel™ manufactured by C Tech Corporation is an anti-insect aversive which repels insects.

Termirepel™  works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application.

The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.

Termirepel™ is an extremely low concern, low toxic, low hazard, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic insect aversive. It does not kill or cause harm to insects as well as to the environment which indirectly helps to maintain the ecological balance.

Termirepel™ is available in the form of the liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio and be applied on the walls of the library or the material which has to be protected from termites

Termirepel™ in the lacquer form can be applied topically to the applications. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, concrete, metal, polymer, ceramic, cables, wires, etc.

Termirepel™ in the form of the masterbatch can be incorporated into polymeric applications like wires, cables, polymeric material, instruments, and equipment.

Termirepel™  is thermally stable and does not degrade on exposure to heat and sunlight. It does not kill or harm the insect but repels them. It does not volatilize and does not degrade the soil.

Chirp..chirp…Crickets!

Crickets, also known as the musical insects are just not another insects but are nuisance pests. They with their presence can be the most irritating creatures around. The crickets in groups can create a sound which is no more pleasant but is a noise!

There are approximately 900 different species of crickets in the Gryllidae family. Crickets have large hind legs, two pairs of wings, flattened bodies and antennae that can be as long or longer than their body. Crickets can be brown, black, green, or red in color.

Crickets lay eggs in large numbers, and when the eggs hatch, the young crickets are on their own to survive. However, certain species of crickets, like the burrowing cricket will care for its young for a few days after hatching.

Crickets can be found throughout the world. They can survive in various habitats, including forests, meadows, fields, rocky areas and caves. Some of them live under the ground. Size of crickets depends on the species. They are usually 1 to 2 inches long.

These creatures who are distantly related to grasshoppers have one pair of one-inch-long antennas, called feelers. Antennas can detect movement of the prey and facilitate the finding of food. Crickets have excellent eyesight. Their eyes (known as compound eyes) consist of a large number of lenses which ensure visualization of different pictures at the same time.

They are a nuisance with their presence and noise. Colonies in rubbish dumps can migrate into houses, causing great distress. They are also prone to damage fabric and foodstuffs. Crickets are strongly attracted to bright lights, and they can enter your house through open doors or cracks in doors, window frames, foundation or siding. Crickets may damage clothing, drapes or wall coverings with staining from feces or vomitus, or by their feeding activities.

Crickets feed above ground at night and take refuge in cracks in the soil during the day. Crickets feed outwards from the cracks, defoliating and killing pasture grasses. They are selective feeders, preferring grasses but also eating legumes, weeds, and seed. They feed on seeds, roots, or leaves of young seedlings. As a result of the attack, the seed dies or fail to germinate. 

Creepy crickets invade Arlington

An outbreak of Mormon crickets has the community of Arlington banding together to control the insects.

They’re crawling up the sides of houses, swarming driveways, munching crops and generally causing a creepy nuisance around town.

Mormon crickets have invaded Arlington this year in startling numbers, with residents trying desperately to figure out how to keep the exploding population under control.

“We’re just overrun,” said Jessica Gossett, who works at the local library. “Now my kids won’t even go out to play.”

The problem has gotten so bad in recent days that roughly 50 people turned out Friday for a community meeting at the Arlington City Council chambers to discuss possible solutions, which ranged from poisons to predators to building a physical barrier around local homes.

Insect Attack! Crickets Swarming Crops

By Rebecca Boone, The Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Farmers in the U.S. West face a creepy scourge every eight years or so: Swarms of ravenous insects that can decimate crops and cause slippery, bug-slick car crashes as they march across highways and roads.

Experts say this year could be a banner one for Mormon crickets — 3-inch-long bugs named after the Mormon pioneers who moved West and learned firsthand the insect’s devastating effect on forage and grain fields.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal Plant Health Inspection Service reports “significantly higher Mormon cricket populations” on federal land in southwestern Idaho, agency spokeswoman Abbey Powell wrote in an email to The Associated Press.

The pests must be kept away from the human dwellings. To do so, many conventional methods are used like fumigation and use of hazardous chemicals. But these methods have failed to keep the crickets away from the houses and farms.

The time needs effective solutions for preventing the cricket nuisance and C Tech Corporation has such a solution with them.

The unique product TermirepelTM manufactured by C Tech Corporation is an anti-insect aversive which repels insects.

TermirepelTM is available in the form of the masterbatch, which can be incorporated with the polymeric applications like wires and cables, pipes, agricultural films etc. The masterbatch, when incorporated into the agricultural films, will repel the crickets and will protect the crops from the damage caused by these pests.

The product available in the form of liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio and be applied on the interior and exterior of houses, schools, hospitals, warehouses, offices to keep the crickets away from these places.

Our product in the lacquer form can be applied topically on the applications. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, concrete, metal, polymer, ceramic, etc. The lacquer can be applied on the already installed applications like the pipes, wires and cable, home decors. The lacquer gives transparent finish and does not disturb the aesthetics of the application.

The product is also effective against a multitude of other insects and pests like beetles, mayflies, thrips, aphids, etc. The repelling mechanism of the product would ward off the boxelder bugs and other insects that could cause damage. Thus, by using TermirepelTM would effectively ensure that the area around us remain safe and protected from the pests for a long period of time.

Why resort to killing when we can just repel them!?

Our product works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application. The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.
 
In such a way the insects can be repelled and the damage caused by them can be prevented without killing them.

Beware of your mails!

The transport of goods from one place to another has undoubtedly been a boon to everybody directly or indirectly. It makes a lot of activities easier for people. These packages and parcels are more often than not shipped via airways and waterways to reach their intended destinations.

However, sometimes on the way, these packages unintentionally pick up something undesirable along with the actual contents. That in itself is a scary thought. But what it actually picks up is scarier. Bugs and pests! Especially pesky little bed bugs and other similar insects. Though the thought of it might seem weird, it is not all that uncommon. A lot of the items that are to be transported are stored in warehouses at different stages of the shipping process. These warehouses are crowded and have many, many packages in them. If even one of the packages has insects on them, it spreads throughout the place very soon. After the warehouses, the packages are transported and even during this stage, a lot of packages come in contact with each other. Infestation can spread way too quickly if an infested package or item is exposed to others.

Many such incidences of bugs and insects arriving via mail and packages have been brought to light in the recent past. Some of the reports are listed below.

Is it possible to catch bed bugs from Amazon packages?

Yes, it is 100% possible to find bed bugs in Amazon packages.

Many people consider cheap motel rooms and public laundromats to be the sole source of bed bug infestations but, unfortunately, this is far from true. Bed bugs can be picked up just about anywhere, including fitting rooms, second-hand stores and even from your latest Amazon order.

These vampiric bugs love dark, enclosed spaces, and the cozy, insulated environment of a cardboard box is especially appealing. Bed bugs will happily stow away inside shipping packages that come into contact with infested items, only to be carried, Trojan-horse style, into your house. Once inside, they can easily be transferred to other items in your home and, if they reach your bed, it’s game over.

Mattresses and bedding are the preferred environment of the bed bug, as it gives them prime access to their favorite food source (i.e. your sleeping body).

The worst thing about bed bugs isn’t even their bite, it’s their persistence. A bed bug infestation can be very difficult to eradicate, and the process can be incredibly distressing (and itchy) for their victims.

Wayfair Class Action Says Headboard Infested with Bed Bugs

A Wayfair class action lawsuit claims that consumers were exposed to bed bugs in infested headboards and mattresses knowingly sold and shipped by the company.

The Wayfair class action lawsuit says the online retailer continued to sell infested furniture items to consumers despite their knowledge of the bed bug infestation,

The lead plaintiff argues that the company did nothing to eradicate the bed bugs or to warn consumers about the problem, ultimately selling the affected items for two years after the defendant became aware of the problem.

The Wayfair bed bug class action lawsuit also states that the infested items are still for sale.

As pointed out in the Wayfair class action lawsuit, bed bugs are insects that feed on human blood.

Can Insects Come in the Mail?

Everything from car seats to cat food can now be delivered to our doorsteps. But in addition to the item you ordered, what else may be lurking inside the packing box? Shripat Kamble, former director of the certification program for the Entomological Society of America and a professor of Entomology at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, scratches the issue.

A bug in a box can be a hardy traveler. Cardboard is a good insulator for small critters, even if it is cold outside, says Dr. Kamble. “Climate doesn’t have a whole lot to do with survival, since the inside temperature doesn’t get that cold.” And a lack of food isn’t an issue either. “We have known bedbugs to survive 30 to 40 days with no food,” he says.

For the most part, says Dr. Kamble, the creatures you may find in the foam peanuts—besides mice—are live adult specimens and egg cases of common insects like roaches, moths, beetles, spiders and bedbugs. But the list, he says, goes on and on.

Tolerance for creepy crawlies on the receiving end varies, says Dr. Kamble. In warm-weather climates, where people see bugs all the time, they may not be too bothered by a few ants or roaches. “But if you go way up North, where you rarely find any insects, you’ll find people’s tolerance is very low,” he says.

Boxwoods shipped to Tennessee may contain invasive pest

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s animal and plant health inspection service confirmed the presence of box tree moth, cydalima perspectalis, in the United States, and Tennessee is a state that may have received infested boxwood plants.

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture was notified that boxwoods shipped to a distribution center in Memphis from Ontario, Canada between August and April may have been infested with box tree moths. APHIS believes six other states may be affected.

“We are monitoring the box tree moth with traps in the Memphis area,” said Commissioner Dr. Charlie Hatcher. “Tennessee imports boxwoods from Canada, and once the pest was detected in Canada last year, TDA placed traps in West Tennessee and in other high-risk areas. Fortunately, there have been no box tree moths detected since that time. Based on the latest information from APHIS, we will place additional traps in West Tennessee.”

Once the unwitting recipient of the packages accepts them and takes them inside their homes to open the parcels, that’s when all hell breaks loose. Now the pesky insects have direct access to the house, an infestation inside the house is bound to occur. Clothes, books, beds and mattresses, pictures and even sofa covers and insulations, everything becomes a large feast for the bugs and the entire apartment is now infested.

What can be done to stop this invasion from happening? Surely one cannot stop accepting their packages and mails, right? A better and effective solution needs to be devised.

Super Termites on the Rise!

In our minds, the outbreak of the Coronavirus is a catastrophe. If given the choice, the entire planet would have skipped this year. Many countries are obliged to prepare for another disaster while dealing with an unresolved pandemic!

But while the world is facing one pandemic, some parts in the world are advised to gear up for something destructive that can cause holes to their pockets. Formosan termites are on the hunt for your home. Termites like this aren’t the typical pests. Because they are far more voracious and invasive than their relatives, the Formosan Termite is often described as a “super termite.” How dangerous is it, you might wonder?

Well, they cause about $2 billion in property damage every year!

From their birthplace in southern China, Formosan termites have spread throughout the world. They have established themselves in South Africa, Sri Lanka, Hawaii, and the continental United States, especially Georgia, where infestations have been on the rise.

In the spring and summer, they prefer damp wood. They do the majority of their devastation at night. After taking flight, they will shed their wings and look for a safe area to procreate and establish their colony by laying eggs. Formosan termite colonies can have anywhere from 1 to 10 million termites. When the Formosan termite matures, it is capable of wreaking havoc.

They not only chew through wood but also go through the plumbing system and can erode concrete, infiltrating every section of your home. If they have infected a structure or property, they are astonishingly difficult to control. They can inflict severe structural damage to your home within six months of occupying it. They infest living trees and shrubs, ornamental structures, wooden railroad trusses, utility poles, and boats, among other things. These termites can gnaw through the insulation of telephone and electrical cables. In a nutshell, they will make holes in your pockets by devouring the houses and workplaces.

Let’s look at some shreds of evidence!

‘Super termites’ set to emerge from Israeli soil in coming days

According to N12, a termite named the “super-termite” was discovered in Israel eight months ago, and the Environmental Protection Ministry is now striving to eradicate the deadly species from the country.

A specimen of the Formosan termite, renowned as the “most harmful termites in the world,” has finally been trapped in an underground monitoring station, and the ministry is now working on a strategy to rid the Jewish State of this invasive troublemaker, which was first discovered in Petakh Tikva.

Destructive super termites are swarming in South Florida, worse than ever

“In southeast Florida, there has been a 30% increase in Formosan and Asian termites in the last five years,” says Rudolf Scheffrahn, an entomology professor at the University of Florida in Davie. “It won’t get better since they have no natural enemies and the pest control business only treats a percentage of the population.”

The non-native Formosan and Asian species, known as super termites, arrive quickly, in large numbers, and strike aggressively. A normal colony can have millions of members who migrate underground, digging up through buildings and eating wood.

According to Scheffrahn, these super termites traveled on ships and yachts, infesting fresh territory in the Port of Palm Beach, the New River in Fort Lauderdale, and the Miami River. According to a 2016 study by the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, half of the homes and buildings from the Keys to Palm Beach County are expected to be infested within the next 20 years at the current pace of spread.

Unlike Formosan termites, the Asian termites are also well-known to invade houses and workplaces. Perhaps more alarming is the fact that the two species are reproducing, with hybrid offspring proliferating twice as quickly as their parent species. Because of its faster growth and resemblance to both Asian and Formosan termites, the new species could be much more invasive than both. Although Asian termites require a tropical environment to develop, Formosan termites may survive in temperate climes. If the new hybrid follows in the footsteps of its Formosan parents, it can be a terrible ravenous beast.

So, how can you defend and conquer the “super termites”?

Regardless of their incredibly destructive nature we at C Tech Corporation have devised a sensible approach!

Our product Termirepel™ is a perfect blend of green chemistry and smart technology. It does not kill, only repels. It is environmentally friendly and does not affect insects, humans, or the ecosystem in any way.

Barbaric Glue Traps

Rats, squirrels, insects, and small birds may squeeze through gaps as small as a quarter-inch wide. They can get into almost any building, car, or backyard with ease. Glue traps are widely employed to get rid of these invaders in an area. Some feel it is the more ethical way of trapping small creatures that are considered pests; however, they aren’t the right approach!

These traps are also called glue boards or sticky boards and are made out of sheets of paper, fiberboard, or plastic that have been covered with tacky glue and are designed to target any small animal that crawls across or lands on them. Glue traps are pretty cruel. People who are aware of the level of cruelty linked with the use of glue traps would refuse to use them.

Thousands of animals are entrapped unknowingly because of these boards. Death is not quick or painless if animals are caught in glue traps. It may rip out patches of fur or feathers, break bones, and even gnaw through their limbs in an attempt to release them, which is horrific.

Below are some recent incidents where the animals were lucky to survive from these inhumane traps!

Fox lucky to be alive after being stuck in a glue trap overnight

An animal welfare charity has called for a ban on glue traps after a fox cub was trapped overnight.

The baby fox, who rescuers say was lucky to survive, was covered in glue after getting caught in the trap on April 10, 2021. The device is a tray coated with a sticky adhesive typically used to trap rodents and animals classed as vermin.

The stricken cub was heard wailing in pain through the night before rescuers were called in to save him. He was then taken to the Scottish SPCA’s National Wildlife Rescue Centre.
His fur was badly matted by the adhesive and needed to be shaved despite attempts to remove the glue through a mix of Fairy liquid, vegetable oil, and soapy water. “This poor fox cub’s lucky escape is further proof that they are an ineffective form of pest control.

Cat rescued from ‘extremely cruel’ glue trap in Accrington

Six-year-old Valentina was rescued by the RSPCA after being found by a member of the public in Accrington in February 2021. Her paws were stuck in a glue trap, which is normally used to trap rats and mice.

The tortoiseshell cat was in a terrible state, with glue all over her fur, and burns to her mouth from where she had tried to lick off the glue. RSPCA Inspector Emma Dingley said: “This poor cat was completely stuck to the glue trap and she had been panicking and trying to get herself free by licking at the glue which then caused severe burns.

The above incidents proved that glue traps are inhumane and cause undue suffering to creatures caught in them, whether they are the intended target species or a cherished pet or wild animal. The terrible reality is that unmanaged trapped animals will slowly die from thirst, hunger, or fatigue.

“Humans are also at risk from glue traps. The CDC and Health Canada specifically advise against their use because to the risk of Hantaviruses spreading when panicked, entrapped animals lose control of their internal functions”

Using traps to combat this problem is not a viable approach. Why rely on these tactics when they have all been proven to be cruel? Instead of killing these pests, you can use products that repel them, bringing the ecosystem back into balance.

Combirepel™ is an anti-rodent, anti-insect, and bird aversive developed by C Tech Corporation for a variety of applications. It is a combination of both Rodrepel™ and Termirepel™ and it is a non-mutagenic, low-toxic, low-hazard with a low level of concern and can withstand harsh weather conditions.

Combirepel™  comes with different variants such as masterbatch, liquid concentrate, lacquer, wood polish additive, spray, and bird repellent gel lacquer to keep the pesky pests at bay!

The masterbatch can be incorporated with polymer while manufacturing cable sheathing, utility pipes, polymeric parts, trash bins, etc. The liquid concentrate can be mixed with paints in a predetermined ratio which depends on infestation level and can be applied on interior and exterior walls of buildings, mechanical equipments, cars, etc. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces such as polymer, concrete, metal, wood, ceramic, etc. it can be topically applied on floorings, racks and shelves, existing utility pipes, existing wires and cables, and other metal surfaces. The wood polish additive can be blended with wood polish and can be applied directly on wooden surfaces to protect it from wood damaging insects.

Combirepel™ Bird Repellent Gel Lacquer is designed to keep birds away. This product is developed solely to keep birds from perching and roosting. The product causes the bird’s pain receptors associated with taste. Some birds use their sense of smell to determine whether the substance is dangerous or not. Repellent induces a physiological reaction in the birds, which they equate with a sensory cue and learn to avoid. As a result, their infestation is minimized, and harm is prevented. The gel lacquer compatible with most of the surfaces and is easy to apply. Also, it can be directly applied to areas prone to bird roosting.  

Our Combirepel™ pest repellent spray is easy-to-use and can be sprayed directly in gaps, cracks, or any infested area to keep the pests away.

Also Rodrepel™ rodent repellent spray can be sprayed on the infested area to repel the rodents.

Bye-Bye Birdy bird repellent spray is very user-friendly and convenient for application.

Thus using the blend of green chemistry and smart technology we can get rid of them without causing them any physical harm and can take a step ahead towards sustainability.

Infestation by the Moths

Moths sure look like harmless insects flying around doing their business, but many-a-times, they come in huge numbers and the destruction such an infestation causes can be major. While it is true that most moths are attracted to light, certain types of moths like the common clothes moths like to nest in dark and dingy places. Other than that, all moths lay eggs and hatch them in dark places as well.

The moths are commonly found in the backside of closets and pantries, where they mate and lay eggs. Clothes moths are specifically attracted to fabrics like wool, fur and even silk and leather. They feed on these clothes and more often than not damage them by chewing holes in them. They also leave behind their waste in the closet and the areas around. These moths also chew on the carpets and curtains around the house.

Other type of moths, the food moths, are very attracted to stored food grains as well as packaged and processed foodstuff. All types of moth eggs, upon hatching, produce small moth larvae. These larvae are very destructive as they contaminate the food and the area around with faeces, cocoons, and web-like material.

Some instances about such moth infestations have been listed below.

Revenge of the clothes moths: as numbers boom, can they be stopped?

When Janine Christley moved into her new house, she thought buying woollen carpets would be the sustainable option. She had the stairs and two floors of her cottage carpeted, at a cost of thousands of pounds. Then the moths moved in.

She first noticed them about four years ago, just a few at first. But then they started devouring the carpets, creating big bare patches. Gradually, Christley has had to rip them up and replace them with synthetic carpet. “I’ve still got woollen carpet in my room and the front room, but there are big holes where they’ve eaten it away,” she says. To a family of moths, it turns out, a wool-carpeted house is essentially an all-you-can-eat restaurant.

“Of course, they’re into clothes as well,” she says. They have eaten woollen jackets and gorged on the bags of wool she keeps for felting projects – as well as the finished works themselves.

Irish homes struggle to manage moth invasion as insects wreak havoc

Moth infestations across Ireland have more than QUADRUPLED, as householders and business owners struggle to cope with an invasion of the winged insects.

The lengthy lockdown, coupled with unseasonable spring weather, have created ideal breeding conditions for moths and sparked a huge surge in numbers.

According to pest control experts, carpet moths in particular have been wreaking havoc and causing irreparable damage, leaving beleaguered homeowners and business owners with hefty bills.

Trevor Hayden, who runs nationwide company ‘Complete Pest Control’, said: “Moths are something we’ve always dealt with in the past, but in small numbers. However, the numbers have exploded over the past few months. We’re now getting up to 20 calls a day about moth infestations, whereas previously we’d only have got about three to four calls at the very most. So we’re probably doing four to five times as many moth jobs as we would normally at the moment.

“In many cases the infestations have been in buildings like offices, restaurants or other commercial premises which haven’t been in use during the lockdown, but which people are now starting to open up again or clean up ahead of restrictions being eased.

“Carpet moths have thrived since we first went into lockdown, because they find their way into empty buildings and unused indoor spaces. Once things get back to normal, I’m sure their numbers will go right back down again.

“Although these pests don’t bite, the infestations are likely to end up costing a fortune, because their larvae will destroy carpets, curtains and upholstery, all which will need to be replaced.”

Aside from the rise in cases of moth infestations, rats remain the biggest headache for homeowners.

Town of Oakville taking action to control gypsy moth infestation

Based on population surveys conducted in 2020, Oakville faces extreme levels of gypsy moth infestation this year that could affect 102 hectares (252 acres) of town woodlands and result in a significant loss of trees if no action is taken.

“The town’s tree canopy is one of our greatest assets,” said Mayor Burton. “Oakville and our neighbouring municipalities successfully conducted aerial sprays in targeted areas in 2008 and 2018. We will continue to protect our urban forest from these damaging invasive insects before they cause irreparable damage.”

Gypsy moth is a non-native insect that is considered a major destructive pest in North America. These insects can be a concern because the larvae (or caterpillar stage) feed voraciously, mostly on the leaves of leafy trees such as oak. When populations are high, they can eat all the leaves on a tree in a short amount of time. When leaves are lost in successive years, trees can die.

Various pest control methods have been tried to stop the menace caused by these insects. But these methods have not offered any fool proof and long lasting method to combat the nuisance of these pests.

What is needed is a solution that is effective, eco- friendly, easy to use and long-lasting.

The unique product Termirepel™ manufactured by C Tech Corporation is an insect and termite aversive which repels them.

Termirepel™ works on the mechanism of repellence. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application.

The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.

Termirepel™ is an extremely low concern, low toxic, low hazard, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic insect aversive. It does not kill or cause harm to insects as well as to the environment which indirectly helps to maintain the ecological balance.

Termirepel™ wood polish additive can be mixed with the wood polish and applied on the wooden surfaces like the closets, pantries, bookshelves, wardrobes, and other furnitures, etc.

The product available in the form of liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio and be applied on the interior and exterior of the buildings and structures to keep the moths and moth larvae away from these places.

Our product in the lacquer form can be applied topically to the applications. The lacquer is compatible with the surfaces wood, concrete, metal, polymer, ceramic, cables, wires which are already installed, etc. The lacquer can be applied on the cupboards, shelves, wardrobes, installed wires, and cables, etc. thus protecting it from damage. The product is also effective against other pests thus protecting the trees from other pest attacks.

Termirepel™ is available in the form of the masterbatch, which can be incorporated into polymeric applications like polymeric wires and cables, pipes, etc.

Termirepel™ insect repellent spray can be sprayed on the infected area to repel the pests.

Termirepel™ does not kill or harm the insects but repels them. It is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, REACH, APVMA, NEA, EU BPR compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Creepy Crawlies Are Taking Over Libraries!

Bedbugs are everywhere!  Hotels and residences are famous for bedbug hubs. Whenever we hear their names we naturally assume of a bed. But did you even know that beds aren’t just the spot where bed bugs appear? A bedbug infestation can be spotted in many locations. They can be found in a significant bunch of areas during your everyday routines.

Surprisingly, libraries are having a hard time tackling the problem of bedbugs nesting in their books and would then creep to borrowers’ residences. In only six months, a single pregnant female bed bug will produce a population of over 700,000-bed bugs. It’s too risky to return a contaminated book. There are many cases where these blood-sucking insects have fall out directly from the book on the library’s desk.

According to the New York Times, bedbugs and their eggs can be found in the spines of hardcover books.” The bugs emerge at night to eat, find a new home in a headboard, and soon readers are loving not only plot twists but also post-bite welts,” according to the newspaper.

Here are some reasons to purchase e-books as bedbugs were blamed to invade the libraries!

The local library closes after the discovery of bed bugs

Bed bugs found in returned DVDs have caused the closure of the Quincy Public Library. NCW Libraries announced on May 01, 2021.

The library has been closed since April 30, 2021, the day the insects were discovered.

Two separate pest control companies came in to confirm that the insects were bed bugs.

On Monday, May 3, 2021, a pest control company was brought in to treat the entire building and individual materials as well. Pest control will follow up to verify the effectiveness of the treatment.

Bed bug infestation temporarily closes Pasco Library in Hudson

On September 05, 2020, the Pasco County Library System announced its temporarily closing one of its branches for an unusual reason: an infestation of bed bugs.

The Hudson branch off of Fivay Road will be closed until further notice.

According to a release from the county, staff at the library noticed the bugs about two weeks ago. The county hired a pest control company to begin “spot treatments,” but that method didn’t seem to work.

So now, the plan is to tent the entire building to kill the pests.

Barbara Cichocki and her son Wayne used to frequent the neighborhood library, but they haven’t been here recently. They are saying thank goodness, just the thought of bed bugs in the library gives Barbara chills.

They not only invade houses or libraries but they can create a huge impact on human health also. Their bites can cause discomfort or an allergic reaction which can be severe.

Various methods are used traditionally to mitigate those blood-sucking creatures. But, every method comes with its drawbacks. Heat tends to age the books. Fumigation is well-known for causing fatigue, nausea, cancers, and endocrine disruptions, etc. Also, excessive use of it has accelerated bedbug evolution. They are becoming immune to commonly used pesticides!

So how can we get out of this dilemma?

Is there any safe and effective way to control those critters?

Well, C Tech Corporation has devised a viable solution!

Our product Termirepel™ is a perfect blend of green chemistry and smart technology. It does not kill, only repels. It is environmentally friendly and does not affect insects, humans, or the ecosystem in any way.

Termirepel™ is an extremely low-toxic, extremely low-hazard, bio-safe anti-termite and insect aversive that is effective against a variety of insects. It is an insect repellent with a wide range of repellence tactics that efficiently keep insects away!

Termirepel™ is available in various forms such as liquid concentrate, lacquer, wood polish additive, spray, and masterbatch.

The liquid concentrate can be mixed in paint in a predetermined ratio and can be applied to the walls of the library.

The lacquer is a topical application and compatible with most surfaces such as wood, polymer, concrete, metal, etc. It can be directly applied on floorings, existing wires, and cables, metal racks, etc.

The masterbatch can be incorporated into polymeric applications like wires, cables, polymeric material, instruments, and equipment.

The wood polish additive can be blended with wood polish and applied directly on wooden shelves, racks, and cabinets to protect them from bedbugs as well as other wood damaging insects such as termites, ants, etc.

The ready-to-use Termirepel™ spray can be sprayed directly on any infested area to prevent the damage caused by insects.

Preserving Historic Relics by Mitigation!

Heritage monuments are antique and culturally significant!

They essentially reflect a country’s culture and tradition. These buildings have old significance due to the architectural beauty and their correlation to key moments such as ritual, political and cultural events in the domain of historic roots.

But did you know termites spent years feasting on these majestic structures!

Termite infestations seem to be a threat at many historic sites for decades. Factors such as termite adaptability, complexities, and limitations of conventional pest control product efficacy; termites became a serious threat to those magnificent monuments.

Termites are social insects that live in colonies and spread all over the world. Their colonies feast on cellulose 24×7 which is mainly found in wood. Cellulose can provide the essential nutrients required for their growth.

The experimental results suggest that “a colony of 200,000 can consume up to 12 pounds of cellulose per year.”

Before evidence of infestation is observed, colonies of a range of hundreds to several thousand may result in substantial damage to heritage buildings. Termites can dig up tunnels close to the edge of a ravaged structure to slash the last coating of paint and other material to acquire food. They eat continuously throughout the day as a result they invade the whole heritage structure without being noticed. They chew on wallpaper, paints, wooden articles, and even the books which represent our evolving behavior and events of the past.

These are some recent incidents where termites are blamed for the damage caused to heritage sites!

Termite damage to force demolition of the historic log cabin in Hamilton

Due to termite attacks, a historic log cabin that Hamilton officials hoped could be restored to function as a residence will have to be torn down. The city called for proposals to redevelop the cabin, which is thought to date from the 1800s, earlier this year. When three city workers took a prospective developer to see it, 223 and 225 S. C St. in the historic Rossville area, the city’s top building inspector, Ken Rivera, found termite damage and advised his colleagues that the structure needed to be demolished because it was in danger of collapsing.

Termites damage Hoi An’s historic relics

Termites are threatening many relics in the old quarter of Hoi An ancient town, a UNESCO-recognized world heritage, local authorities, and residents have reported. A survey by the Institute of Ecology and Works Protection in collaboration with the Hoi An Cultural Heritage Conservation Management Centre (CHCMC) recently revealed 265 of the 800 historical relics in the old quarter of Hoi An Town have some levels of termite problems.
The survey said these relics have been severely damaged since the recent COVID-19 social distancing last July. They also issued an urgent warning that solutions should be needed immediately to prevent the damage and keep the termites away, or the relics would be destroyed in a short time. Pham Phu Ngoc, Director of the CHCMC, said the termites had caused rapid degradation of the relics. The official added that after each rainy season, the weather changed, causing humidity that helped termites appear more in the wooden relics.
Due to climate change, the weather is increasingly erratic, creating favorable conditions for termites to develop and impact relics very quickly, according to Ngoc.

These incidents proved that termites are a serious hurdle for heritage sites!

Many insecticide barrier and baiting technologies have been tried and tested to control the population of termites every method comes with its drawbacks. Termite baits take a long time to eliminate their population. Historic structures often are located in sensitive areas so spraying toxic insecticides may contaminate natural habitats. Also, it may cause damage to historic relics.

In Cho-ho Ji, a 500-yr-old Buddhist temple in Wakayama, Japan, wooden gates were irreversibly stained by the liquid insecticides.

Conventional pest control methods may give a faster result by killing a small number of termites at the treatment site, but it only drives termites from one part of the property to another without affecting the overall population.

Along with termites, birds are well-known for causing damage to these precious monuments. Uric acid is released from their excrement which leads to stonework corrosion and these corrosive effects can continue for a long time after the stone has been contaminated, even if the fouling is removed.

So how we can mitigate those creepy pests for long period without affecting the ecosystem?

We at C Tech Corporation have devised a sensible approach!

Our product Termirepel is a perfect blend of green chemistry and smart technology. It does not kill, only repels. It is environmentally friendly and does not affect insects, humans, or the ecosystem in any way.

The Ant Attack

Ants like to build nests in the electrical and wiring systems of your household. They build nests and if they find access to food and water sources, they can easily thrive in the dingiest of spaces. Electrical outlets, wires and cables can provide them very comfortable living space. Ants are weirdly attracted to electric hardware as well as electricity and in the process cause critical damage to these systems. The aromatic polymers that most of the electrical appliances are made of attract the ants. However, the exact reason for the affinity towards electricity is unknown. 

The destructive power of these tiny ants is huge. When they come in large numbers around electrical boxes and outlets, they start chewing on the sheathing present on the wires. After degrading the protective sheathing, they have a high chance of coming in direct contact with electricity, leading to them getting electrocuted. When ants die, they release a pheromone that is perceived by other ants as a signal to detect danger. When other worker ants get the scent, they come to the same place to rescue the ants in danger, thereby getting electrocuted themselves during the process and sending out more pheromone signals. This makes a repetitive cycle with more and more ants coming near the wirings. The build-up of dead ants will cause blockage and eventual breakdown of the system, which can prove to be very dangerous due to the possibility of a short circuit or system failure occurring.

Apart from this, ants also build nests around electrical systems and wirings inside walls. They use wet and moist mud, dirt and other debris that they collect from the outdoors to build these nests. The moisture will definitely harm the wirings and can lead to power failures and blackouts. The waste and dead bodies they leave behind act as corrosive agents for the wires for the electrical contacts and boxes. 

Conventional insecticides used to kill these ants have proven to be an ineffective solution. Apart from these insecticides being extremely toxic in nature, the sprays and other killing materials used have been seen to attract other species of insects to eat the ant carcasses left behind. These toxic sprays also kill non-target species and are hazardous to us humans. Moreover, certain species of ants like the crazy ants are not at all affected by the toxic effects of these insecticides.

“New Ant Species Arrives With a Taste for Electronics, Scientists Say”

There’s a new player on the continent and it is spreading damage from Texas to Florida in a scary assault that sounds like a really bad movie.

“Crazy” ants on the march have a taste for everything from livestock to electrical equipment. They are so obnoxious that many residents yearn for the good old days when all they had to fight was red ants that are quickly being wiped out by the crazies.

The tiny insect is called “crazy” because the trail it leaves as it eats its way across the country is so erratic it appears the ants have tipped the bottle too many times.

Scientists know it as Nylanderia fulva, but its commonly accepted name is “tawny crazy ant,” formerly known as the raspberry crazy ant.

It doesn’t sting, but it has an annoying bite that can scare wildlife away — and, unlike its more famous cousin, the red ant, it is highly invasive, infesting homes, recreational vehicles, transformers and any laptop or smart phone left in its path.

Both reds and crazies and a few other species share a peculiar attraction to electrical wiring and components, and no one is sure why. The damages can be extreme. In one year alone, researchers documented $146.5 million in damages to electrical equipment just in Texas.

How they cause that damage also sounds like a really bad movie. One ant finds its way into a transformer and grazes against a hot wire. It gets electrocuted, and immediately “waves its abdomen in the air (called gaster flagging) to release its own brand of perfume, which lures many more ants to the scene.

Another species, called acrobat ants, infiltrated an air conditioner in Austin, Texas, causing it to malfunction and costing the homeowner $196.54.

“Perhaps the biggest deal is the displacement of the fire ant,” LeBrun said, in releasing his study. “The whole ecosystem has changed around fire ants. Things that can’t tolerate fire ants are gone. Many that can have flourished.

New things have come in. Now we are going to go through and whack the fire ants and put something in its place that has a very different biology. There are going to be a lot of changes that come from that.”

“Why ‘Crazy Ants’ Swarm Inside Electronics”

“Exterminator Mike Matthews got the call because the home’s air-conditioning unit had short-circuited. Why an exterminator for a problem with an appliance? Because of the crazy ants.

Matthews has seen crazy ants disable scores of air-conditioning units near Austin, Texas, where the invasive creatures have been a real headache. The ants swarm inside the units, causing them to short-circuit and preventing them from turning on. Often the switches inside them need to be replaced, thanks to the ants, said Matthews.

“When you open these things up, you see thousands of the ants, just completely filling them up,” Matthews said.

The ants first appeared in the United States in 2002 but have become more of a menace in the past few years, spreading to many areas of the Gulf Coast, particularly Texas and Florida. The ants are obnoxious because they reproduce in large numbers, sometimes outnumbering all other ants 100-to-1. That’s a problem since ecosystems depend on a wide variety of ants to perform different tasks; domination by one species is highly unusual, said Edward LeBrun, a researcher at the University of Texas. As the ants have advanced into new habitats, they’ve had the annoying habit of swarming inside electronics, like air conditioners and farm equipment likes pumps and occasionally destroying them, LeBrun told LiveScience.”

C Tech Corporation has come up with its extremely low in toxicity and low hazard product, Termirepel™ to protect the electrical application and cables from these ravenous insects.

It is an environmentally safe product that works by repelling ants and other insects without causing any harm to the target or non-target species. Termirepel™ is available in form of a solid masterbatch which can be safely incorporated into the polymeric insulation of wires and cables while manufacturing or coated on surfaces to keep crazy ants away from the application.

Termirepel™ is also available in the form of liquid concentrate and lacquer. The liquid concentrate can be easily blended with paints and organic solvents and can be applied to already installed wires and cables, sockets, electric board, etc. The lacquer is an easy-to-use topical applicant that is transparent and will effectively stop the ants as well as other insects from chewing on or damaging the wires and cables.

The wood polish additive variant can be mixed with wood polish and coated on the wooden switchboards and boxes. It will prevent the insects from entering the box altogether. 

Our newly developed product in the form of a spray can be applied to already installed wires and cables, it is compatible with all types of surface and can be sprayed by anyone without even the use of protection gears.

Locust Plague-An Unprecedented Threat!

Coronavirus outbreak has marked catastrophe in our mind. This year would have been skipped by the entire world if given the chance. Many countries are forced to brace for another crisis while grappling with a pandemic that has yet to be addressed. A desert locust attack!

The desert locust is one of the 12 short-horned grasshopper species, and its swarms can migrate up to 130 kilometers in a single day. A locust can feast on approximately two grams of fresh vegetation per day. This indicates that they are capable of destroying not only valuable standing crops but also the livelihoods of those involved in the food supply chain.

They typically migrate in desert areas to breed. Climate change, pandemic followed by lockdown, and stormy winds forced them to move to the grass fields sooner this year than expected.

Plants like shrubs and grasses can be completely stripped of their leaves and stems by vicious swarms of locusts and a single swarm can consist of around 80-150 million locusts. When plant food is scarce, they consume dry plant matter on the ground and may forage for poor or dead grasshoppers. Since nymphs have a larger appetite than adults, they cause more harm.

Let’s have a look at some recent invasions!

Locusts destroy nearly 8 000 hectares of crops

Zimbabwe | March 20, 2021

Locusts have reportedly ravaged sorghum, millet, and maize destroying nearly 8 000 hectares of the crops in Chiredzi and Mwenezi.  the worst infestation in decades that could leave scores of farmers facing food insecurity.

Crop damage ranged from 3-92% depending on the crop,” said Nyamutukwa. “Sorghum is the worst affected crop and it constituted the greater part of the affected 7853,2 hectares of cropland in Chiredzi and Mwenezi.”

Affected crops included sorghum, pearl millet, beans, maize, sugarcane, and cowpeas.

Over 200,000 hectares of crops lost to locust attacks since 2019

India | March 16, 2021

Locust attacks in the country damaged at least 200,000 hectares (ha) of crops across 10 states in the last two years, according to a reply by the Union government in Parliament.

The locust attacks between 2019 and 2021 were the most serious in the country since 1993. 

During 2019-20, locust incursion was reported in Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Punjab. In the following year, the insects attacked Rajasthan, Gujarat, Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, and Maharashtra, according to agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar. 

Rajasthan and Gujarat reported the highest crop losses of at least 179,750 ha and 21,500 ha, respectively, over the two years.

During 2020-21, while Uttar Pradesh reported a nominal crop loss of 202.9 ha, vegetation damage was below 33 percent in Maharashtra (805.8 ha) and Uttarakhand (292.4 ha).  

Also, just one swarm can cover 20% of the land surface of the Earth, affecting the livelihood of 10% of the world’s population by consuming up to 200 tonnes of vegetation per day.

These invasions proved that locusts can be extremely dangerous. They are so many and they can occupy thousands of square kilometers. They wreck everything that comes in their track, including green plants and crops.

An insecticide is currently the most widely used control method. Whole swarms can be attacked in a short period if sprayed from land or air vehicles. However, this has inevitably resulted in some environmental issues.

But we at C Tech Corporation provide a more promising bio-safe range of products to keep these swarms at bay!

Termirepelis an extremely low-toxic, extremely low-hazard, non-carcinogenic and, non-mutagenic insect aversive. It is proven to be effective over 500 species including steam rice borers, beetles, bugs, weevils, etc.

Termirepel is an environmentally safe product that works on a repellence mechanism that does not cause any harm to the target or non-target species.

Termirepel is available in different variants such as masterbatch, liquid concentrate, lacquer, wood polish additive, spray, etc.

The masterbatch can be incorporated with polymeric applications for manufacturing agricultural films, grain bags, tree guards, drip irrigation pipes, etc. to keep these insects away from the agricultural field.

The liquid concentrate can be mixed with paint in a predetermined ratio to coat fences, interior, and exterior of storage rooms, etc.

Lacquer is a topical application and it is compatible with most of the surfaces including polymer, metal, ceramic, wood, and concrete. It can be applied directly on already installed pipes, tree trunks, fences, agricultural equiments, etc. to protect from pest damage.

The wood polish additive can be blended with wood polish and applied on wooden surfaces to protect it from wood damaging insects.

Our ready-to-use spray product is easy to use and can be sprayed directly on the infested area.

It can be sprayed in farms, as well as the store rooms and warehouses. It is specially designed to combat insect menace.

Termirepel is thermally stable, does not volatilize, and does not degrade the soil.

We also have Combirepelwhich can be used against a wide range of rodents, insects and birds to keep them away from agricultural fields.

Many countries have banned the use of pesticides because of their adverse effects on pollinators and human health. But we are the first-ever organization to get EU-BPR approval on our product range.

Our products are RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.

By using our products you will get an effective solution over a long period by keeping our mother nature safe!

The Rise of Mutant Scavengers!

There was a time when you were equipped with bug repellent and you could annihilate those critters with a few knob presses. But now according to new studies, these superbugs are becoming increasingly difficult to eradicate.

The worst pests of all got a powerful new weapon in the never-ending battle between human and pest! These fights are not equally balanced if you want a chemical war. That’s not even real. The insects we attack adapt by biological evolution in response to each round of chemicals we apply. The quicker the evolution, the more violent is the attack!

These creepy crawlies evolve faster than our ability to comprehend. They are notoriously hard to get rid of, and it’s about to get worse. Cockroaches and bedbugs are long been known to develop resistance to commonly used pesticides, but modern data has shown that they may also develop cross-resistance to chemicals to which they have never been exposed.

Let’s have a look at some shreds of evidence!

“Cockroaches are becoming immune to insecticides” – CNN News

If it’s not the heat death of the Earth that consumes us; if we are not snuffed out by blight, famine, and the volatile hubris of mankind, it’s only a matter of time before the cockroaches rise and conquer us all. They are growing stronger.

They are keen on our defenses and devour them, snickering all the while at our impotent pest control burlesque. If things continue down this dark path the exterminated, in time, will become the exterminators.

This fatalistic vision is brought to you by the very disturbing news that cockroaches have begun to develop a cross-resistance to powerful insecticides.

Scientists from Purdue exposed German cockroaches to different insecticides and found that the cockroach populations not only developed a resistance to the insecticide they were exposed to but also picked up resistance to other insecticides.

The super-immune insects can then pass their resistance on to their offspring, making it only a matter of time before a given population becomes, essentially, insecticide-proof.

“Bed bugs develop resistance to widely used pesticides”- BBC News

A new study indicates that bed bugs in the US have developed resistance to neonicotinoids, the most widely used insecticide in the world.

Researchers found the blood-sucking insects in Cincinnati and Michigan had “dramatic levels” of immunity to regular doses of the chemicals.

To kill these bugs required concentrations 1,000 larger than needed to eliminate non-resistant creatures.

The scientists say non-chemical methods of control now need to be considered.

Thanks to the increase in the global human population and the rapid expansion of international travel, the flat-bodied bed bug has become a source of considerable irritation in hotel rooms all over the world.

Mainly active at night, the insects survive solely on blood and travelers often wake up with bite marks and red weal all over their bodies.

Infestations have spread to homes and offices and the bugs are extremely hard to get rid of once they gain a foothold; they can survive for up to a year without feeding and a single fertilized female can infect an entire apartment building.

Also, farmers in the United States lost 7% of their crops to pests in the 1940s; by the 1980s and 1990s, the loss had increased to 13%, despite the use of more pesticides.

New studies have found pesticide resistance has been found in over 500 species of insects, mites, and spiders around the world.

Besides roaches and bed bugs; head lice, houseflies, mosquitoes, aphids, steam rice borer, and other common insects have developed resistance to commonly used pesticides.

A recent study found that over the last 30 years, the biomass of insects had declined in wild forests by 70 percent.

Along with this pesticides are well-known to kill pollinators which are beneficial for our ecosystem. So what can be done to repel those critters without harming our mother nature?

What effective steps can be taken to combat the menace caused by these insects?

Well, we at C Tech Corporation developed environment-friendly, non-hazardous, non-toxic, non-mutagenic, and non-carcinogenic product range to fight the problem without killing the pests.

Termirepel™ is an extremely low toxic and low hazard anti-termite and insect aversive which an excellent solution against insect infestation.

It implements a six-prolonged technique that is highly effective in preventing damage from cockroaches, bedbugs, and other insects.

Termirepel is available in various forms such as masterbatch, liquid concentrate, lacquer, wood polish additive, and spray.

Masterbatch can be incorporated with a polymer to manufacture polymeric applications such as cable sheathing, agriculture films, grain bags, etc.

The liquid concentrate can be mixed with paint in a predetermined ratio and can be applied on walls and also used to coat mechanical equipment if any.

Lacquer is a topical application and it is compatible with most surfaces such as polymer, ceramic, concrete, wood, metal, etc.

Wood polish additive can be blended with wood polish and applied on any wooden surface to protect it from wood-eating insects such as termites and ants.

Our ready-to-use Termirepel spray is easy to use and can be applied anywhere to keep insects away.

The product is compliant with RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, REACH, APVMA, NEA, EU-BPR, and FIFRA exempted.

Delicious Dosh – ‘Money Hungry’ Termites feast on piles of cash!

‘Termites are known to cause more than $30 billion damage worldwide.’

They have become the most reputed creatures for damaging the furniture, deterioration of forests, and chewing through books, and cloth. 

Apart from this did you know? These pesky critters also munch a huge chunk of cash!

Well, a termite infestation can pose a serious threat to your pockets. It’s important to know that termites eat both wood and paper, which contain a high level of cellulose. This might cause you to think if any of the paper in your home needs to be protected if you have a termite problem! 

Termites are the most invasive species found on the earth. They are active throughout the day and they feed on 24×7. They grow quickly thus, anything that comes in their way they will feast on it.

Are you curious how these tiny starving species can be a major headache? How they can feast on your savings? So, let’s take a look at it.

Termites eat up currency worth ₹5 lakh

Andhra Pradesh (IN) | February 17, 2021

A pig-rearer who kept currency notes in an iron safe was shocked after noticing that the notes were destroyed by termites in the Krishna district.

B. Jamalaiah of Mylavaram village had saved about ₹5 lakh in an iron box. When he opened the box on Tuesday, he found the notes were completely damaged. Shocked by the heavy loss, the family members were seen crying for help. Police visited his house.

“I planned to construct a house with my savings. But, I was upset as holes were seen on all the notes,” Mr. Jamalaiah said. As Mr. Jamalaiah didn’t have a bank account, he stored the money in the iron box, the villagers said.

Termites eat up ₹2 Lakh Cash Kept In Bank

Gujarat (IN) | January 23, 2021

A man hailing from Vadodara in Gujarat lost Rs 2.20 lakh cash after termites ate up the currency notes kept in his bank locker at the Bank of Baroda branch at Pratap Nagar in the city.

According to the media reports, the man identified as Rehna Qutubddin Desarwal had reportedly kept the cash bundles in locker number 252 which were feasted by termites. The account holder came to know about this when he reached the bank to collect his money.

Shocked by the incident, Desarwal later raised a complaint with the bank manager and demanded his money back. He demanded that the bank refund the money which he lost due to the termites.

While the bank has asked him to give an application to replace the cash, the incident has raised questions about the safety and security of the Bank of Baroda branch.

How termites targeted currency note bundles stacked in a steel chest is still a mystery!

Apart from this in 2016, there were reports of termites destroying a huge amount of donation money in a temple in Bihar. Also in 2011 a major bank in Bihar again was a victim of termite infestation. These incidents proved that money is no longer secured in any lockers!

When it comes to losses, No doubt, Termites are the most expensive species to humankind. Termite infestations are typically recognized only after they have caused large-scale damage. Thus, detecting a termite attack in its preliminary phase is extremely difficult. But precaution is better than cure, you can certainly take some steps to prevent the termites from entering your areas and premises to avoid monetary losses.

There are many anti-termite treatments available in the market but it requires a repeated application and harmful contents of these insecticides are not safe for children and pets. Also as a side effect, improper use of these treatments will lead to spreading the termites in other areas.

So then what’s the solution? How you can save your investment?

Well, to deal with the menace caused by these tiny critters we at C Tech Corporation have come up with EU-BPR-approved, eco-friendly and non-hazardous solution.

C Tech Corporation offers a range of non-toxic, non-hazardous anti-insect aversive, which can be successfully used to keep termites away!

THE NASTY BOOK PESTS

Isn’t it particularly scary to know that all of the books that you have collected and treasured over the past many, many years can be destroyed mercilessly? You might wonder who can be so cruel and the answer will definitely surprise you. That is because the destruction of all your precious books is be done by tiny little insects.

Insect pests that destroy books are apocalyptic for libraries.  Beetles, Booklice, Termites, Silverfish, some type of cockroaches, bed-bugs, etc. are among the common book pests. These are all tiny little insects. However, an infestation means humungous damage.

Some pest feed on the book itself, while others feed on the mould/fungus that grows on books. In any case, they are a nuisance and the infestation does not take much time to spread. Pests breed on the pages of the book and eat the binding and even the glue present on the bindings. They eat the corners of books and also leave non-uniform holes on the pages of the books. Silverfish also stain the pages with the trail they leave behind while they move around on the books. These pests like to hide in cracks and cervices, and tight, dingy spaces and bookshelves provide them the perfect spot. They also feast on other items that they find like wallpapers, cardboard boxes, newspapers, and even the bookshelf itself.  

In places like libraries, where the source of food is vast for these insects, an infestation can spread very quickly. The infestation is likely to go unnoticed if close attention is not paid to all books. And if such pest-infested books are borrowed by readers and taken to their homes, the chance of it reaching and spreading there is also quite high. Bedbugs, especially, have been known to be capable of residing and laying eggs on spines of book covers. These bedbugs then travel everywhere the books go.

Some incidences of reported infestations are mentioned below:

TWO REPORTS OF BED BUG SIGHTINGS IN RYE LIBRARY THIS MONTH

In Campus News, February 20, 2020

By Sarah Tomlinson

“The Ryerson University Library was closed following a report of a possible bed bug sighting.

Last week, a bed bug was discovered during a routine inspection and the chair on which it was found was disposed of, according to an email from Ryerson’s Facilities Management and Development (FMD).

FMD stated the area was closed off and steamed. Orkin, Ryerson’s pest control provider, inspected the area afterward. No bed bugs were found.

An undated picture of a bed bug found on a chair on the 10th floor of Ryerson’s library was sent to FMD’s help desk on Wednesday.

Under the Ryerson subreddit, a user posted a photo on Tuesday of what appeared to be a bed bug with the caption, “Looks like the bed bug problem on Ryerson library’s 10th floor is still unresolved.”

On Monday morning, a picture of what appeared to be a bed bug was tweeted to The Eyeopener by a physics student.

According to the student, what appeared to be a “baby bed bug” fell onto their textbook on the 10th floor of the library. The picture was sent undated and without a time, so FMD said they can’t determine whether the picture was taken last week or if it’s a new case of bed bugs in the library.

“The area has been cordoned off again as an extra precaution and a canine team will be re-inspecting the area this evening to ensure it remains clear,” said FMD on Wednesday.”

Giving library pests the cold shoulder

UW Libraries

Bedbugs reveal a taste for literature, turning up in library books, the New York Times reported Dec. 5 in an article headlined “A dark and itchy night.”

“Bedbugs have discovered a new way to hitchhike in and out of beds: library books. It turns out that tiny bedbugs and their eggs can hide in the spines of hardcover books. The bugs crawl out at night to feed, find a new home in a headboard, and soon readers are enjoying not only plot twists but post-bite welts,” the article said.

UW Libraries was among the libraries mentioned in the article as having spotted bedbugs this year on returned books.

In August, UW circulation staff noticed dark spots and, upon closer examination, insects near the spine of some returned books. Following procedure, the staff sealed the books in plastic bags and called Environmental Health and Safety, which identified the insects as bedbugs.

The pests were on fewer than ten volumes within the UW’s collection of over 7million books, said Stephanie Lamson, preservation librarian and someone who regularly deals with pests and other threats to libraries collections.

“Above all, people should not be afraid of libraries,” she said. “Bedbugs are much more likely to be encountered in hotels, homes and apartments where they have easy access to sleeping humans – the food source they need to survive.”

Thus, it can be seen how repairing an infestation would be tedious and tiresome. And we all know that ‘Prevention is better than cure’. Taking care that such insects and pests don’t get a chance to thrive would be the best bet to truly safeguard one’s precious books and antiques.

The common pest control solution used will not only be toxic to the residents in case of a home infestation and reader in case of a library but can also damage the fragile books and antiques. Apart from this, it is also common, after a conventional pest control program, to keep the room/area closed for up to 3 days because of the toxic fumes and harmful chemicals present in them. And public libraries might have to be shut down, a sad situation for avid readers.

What if I tell you that all these problems can have one simple solution? Our product Termirepel™ manufactured by C Tech Corporation is an anti-insect aversive that repels insects.

Termirepel™ works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application.

The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of vital hormones for growth.

Termirepel™ is an extremely low concern, low toxic, low hazard, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic insect aversive. It does not kill or cause harm to insects as well as to the environment which indirectly helps to maintain the ecological balance.

Termirepel™ is available in the form of the liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio and be applied on the walls of the library or the material which has to be protected from termites

Termirepel™ in the lacquer form can be applied topically to the applications. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, concrete, metal, polymer, ceramic, cables, wires, etc.

Termirepel™ in the form of wood polish additive can be used for applications on wooden racks and cabinets and bookshelves.

We also have our new easy-to-use spray product for Termirepel™ Insect Repellent Spraycompatible with most of the surfaces.

Termirepel™ is thermally stable and does not degrade on exposure to heat and sunlight. It does not kill or harm the insect but repels them. It does not volatilize and does not degrade the soil.

Moths-The Winged Invaders!

Have you ever found holes in your sweaters? The reason behind this damage might be the hungry moth larvae! These creatures may seem harmless but they can cause you a serious economic loss as well as some harmful effects on your health. You might be thinking about how they will cause you a serious loss on finances? But these pesky critters can be found anywhere at your home. They invade every stored food item in the kitchen, clothes in the wardrobe, and even your upholstered furniture. Basically, they will damage the entire house collection through a chain reaction!

Before it gets out of hand, you’ll want to deal with the situation. But it’s important to first understand the root of the problem in order to remove those invaders from your home; you need to know about them!

Moths are flying insects having their wings covered with tiny wing scales. They are in dull colors such as grey or brown. Unlike other insects, they are attracted to light. There are around 1, 60,000 species of moths but the most common invaders are pantry moths and fabric moths.

The pantry moths can also be called Indian meal moths. They lay their eggs in stored food and feed on stored food products in the kitchen. Grain products, such as maize, cereals, cornmeal, rice, and nuts, are their favorite foods, but they can also infest birdseed, pet food, dried pasta, and dried fruit. The larvae of this species have the capacity to bite through plastic and cardboard in order to infest and they even attack the sealed containers.

The fabric moths or The Webbing Clothes Moths are attracted to fabrics. Their infestation mostly takes place near the cloth storage where they can easily eat the fabric in a dark place. Another reason for infestation is their baby larvae require keratin for growth which can be easily found in natural fibers. Adult moths lay plenty of eggs on clothes where larvae will have proper nourishment. Just imagine caterpillar chomping holes into the leaves of your favorite plant. This is analogous to how your precious clothes are damaged by those pesky critters.

Many individuals believe that when it comes to invasion, the adult moths are the culprits. But that is not the case!

Usually, adult moths do not consume anything but their larvae invade the house to consume required nutrition. They lay their eggs in clothing or food items and where their eggs get hatched their larvae destroy everything by eating those items. Thus, these insects are known as destructive creatures.

Let’s have a look at some pieces of evidence!

Moth invasion: why Australian homes are being plagued by ‘out of control’ flying insects after a sweltering summer

Daily Mail | April 26, 2019

A pantry moth invasion brought on by this year’s sweltering summer is plaguing Australian homes.

One expert from the south Australian research and development institute said the recent hot spell is sparking an explosion in their population. ‘The warmer weather means they develop faster and this may be why they appear more prevalent,’ said Dr. Peter Taverner in the Adelaide. 

Residents have been battling a particularly strong infestation in the cupboards of their kitchens.

One mother, Clair Kolokas, said: ‘i keep thinking surely I’ve got them all, and the next morning they’re back.’

‘I have gone through the entire cupboard, and my children are scared to open it in case one flies out into their face,’ she said. 

A swarm of moths is invading Britain’s homes after “perfect” breeding weather this summer

The Sun | October 06, 2018

People have been warned to take care of their favorite knits as the pests chomp their way through our favorite jumpers and cardigans this autumn. Millions of homes are expected to affect by the swarm as temperatures plummet. Moths are attracted to wool and natural fibers such as cashmere, tweed, sheepskin, and fur and leave unsightly holes behind.

The clothes moths, called Tineola Bisselliella, are not like others which are drawn to light and prefer ‘dark and warm’ habitats, like the bottom of a chest of drawers or wardrobes. Bosses at clean kill pest control said the hot summer caused the moths to spiral out of control with the number of call-outs for infestations rocketing. Boss paul bates said: “high heat and humidity have been good for moth breeding, but now as the temperature starts to drop, people are opening drawers and cupboards that to find that their best woolen jumpers are full of holes.

“After the adult moth has laid her eggs on the threads of clothes, the larvae hatch out at anywhere between four and 21 days, depending on the temperature. “the newly hatched larvae are about 1mm long and will start to spin a small, silken tube, using some of the fibers of the fabric they are eating.” he added: “they will eat from many sources including furs, woolens, animal bristles on brushes and even the felt inside pianos. “In loft spaces, they can infest old stored clothing, carpets natural fiber insulation, and even bird feathers.”

As we know “An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure!”  The most common methods to repel these creatures are Mothballs and Cedar Blocks. Mothballs have been used for years but they are dangerous for humans and other animals if they are chewed or eaten. Mothball contains Naphthalene which is carcinogenic. It may cause you health effects like damage to blood cells, headache, nausea, eye, and nose irritation, and coughing. Also, mothballs are only effective when used in sealed containers so they would not be effective on rugs or carpets. On the other hand, cedar block may kill the larvae but they are ineffective against adult moths. As a result, the adult moths keep laying eggs and destruction will go on.

Well, CTech Corporation offers a solution to overcome this invasion.

TermirepelTM is an insect aversive that is extremely low-toxic, extremely low-hazardous, and environmentally safe. It can be successfully used to keep the winged invaders away!

TermirepelTM works on repellency mechanism such that it will not kill the target species but only repel them.

The product available in masterbatch form can be used with many polymeric applications. The product in form of liquid concentrate can be added with paint and can be applied in kitchen and food storage areas. The lacquer and wood polish additive can be applied directly on wardrobes or other storage cabinets where moth infestation is higher. The spray can be used directly to any packed food item or any infested surface to keep these creatures away.

TermirepelTM is the first ever to be EU-BPR approved product. Also, it is compliant with RoHS, REACH, NEA, APVMA, and FIFRA exempted.

By using TermirepelTM you will get an effective solution against these pesky critters causing no harm to the environment.

Innumerable Bedbugs!

Have you ever thought of bedbugs making your home as their? Well, thinking about them will make your skin crawl and feel you a little bit anxious. Psychological trauma evolves in certain individuals which are victimized by bed bugs. Physical symptoms such as skin infections can also be seen in individuals because of bed bugs. Basically, they can take a toll on your health even though they are not well known to cause diseases. So it’s necessary to know about the bed bugs before they make mess at home. A best way to know about them is their life cycle.
So, let’s dive into it!
Tiny, oval shaped, brownish insects which live on the blood of animals  or humans are known as bedbugs. The flat bodies of adult bedbugs are around the size of an  apple  seed. Their bodies swell after eating. Each day, an adult bed bug will lay one to five eggs.  Within 6 to 10 days,  these eggs hatch at room temperature. A female bedbug can lay about hundreds of eggs over a lifetime. Bedbugs do not fly, but over floors, walls, and ceilings.

they can travel easily. Before reaching maturity, immature bedbugs are called as nymphs. They shed their skin five times and need a meal before each shedding. The bugs will grow completely in as little as a month under favorable conditions and produce three or  more generations per  year. Via luggage, clothes, used beds and couches, and other objects,  they can enter your home undetected. Their flattened bodies allow them to  fit into small spaces. They lay their eggs where blood can be available easily and the place which is undisturbed. i.e.  they can lay their eggs near bed frame or they can simply enter through the mattress if any crack is present. If the immature bedbugs get to feed more often they can become adults soon. Usually June and July months are peak time for bedbugs as they multiply faster in humidity. They do not have nests like ants or bees but they live in clusters where no one can catch them easily. As they are more active in night they bite people while sleeping and then crawl away easily so no one can notice them. They can spread through neighborhood as their population is continuously growing.

Let’s have a look on some articles of their infestation!

Bed bugs modify micro biome of homes they infestation

North Carolina State University | July 15, 2020

Microbes can affect indoor air quality. So NC State entomologists Coby Schal and Madhavi Kakumanu wanted to learn more about the micro biomes of bed bugs, whether bed bugs can shape the microbial community in homes they infest, and whether eliminating bed bugs changes the micro biome of homes that were once infested. The study, held in an apartment complex in Raleigh, compared the micro biomes of bed bugs with the micro biomes in the household dust of infested homes as well as the micro biomes in apartments that had no bed bugs. Nineteen infested homes were studied over the course of four months; seven were treated with heat to eliminate bed bugs after the initial sample was taken, while 12 infested homes were treated after one month. These homes were compared with 11 homes that had no bed bugs. The results showed similarities between the micro biomes of bed bugs and the dust-associated micro biomes of infested homes, mostly through the presence of Wolbachia, a symbiotic bacterium that comprises the majority of the bacterial abundance in bed bugs. Bed bug and infested home micro biomes differed significantly from the microbial communities of uninfected homes. The study also showed that, after bed bugs were eliminated; infested home micro biomes gradually became more like those in homes without bed bugs.

Bed Bugs On the Rise, Despite Covid-19, New Study Suggests

Forbes | August 1, 2020

A new study concluded this week that bed bugs were such a problem in France that they now pose a national health hazard. The creatures have been on the rise globally but in the past decade, bed bugs have proliferated–they are now found in every U.S. state and countries across Europe have seen huge infestations, notably Paris. At the beginning of 2020, the French Union for Pest Control stated that, “France’s bed bug problem has seen the number of cases go from 180,000 to 400,000 in just two years”. The French government website states that they arrived in France in the 1950s with the advent of international travel and have proliferated because of their increasing resistance to insecticide. It says that bedrooms and living rooms are predominantly more affected.

Apart from these bedbugs can cause health complications like sleep deprivation and anemia from loss of blood. Although the bites are itchy, and often require over-the-counter treatment to relieve the itchiness. If you suspect you may have an infestation, don’t worry we are here to help!

C Tech Corporation has found an ecofriendly solution for it. The product is called TermirepelTM. Company believes to provide uncompromising quality products to the customers and this product is an excellent insect repellent which is extremely low toxic, extremely low hazardous in nature.
TermirepelTM is made with a mechanism such that, the product temporarily blocks the mating cycle of these insects and causes feeding disruption by creating a discomfort within the insects. The product weakens the ability of insects to reproduce which means, female insects will not lay eggs and laid eggs will be infertile. The product disturbs the release of vital hormones which are essential for insects to grow. 
TermirepelTM is available in various forms such as masterbatch, paint additives, wood polish furniture, lacquer, spray and bird repellent gel lacquer.

The wood polish additive can be applied directly over the furniture or wooden article to prevent the infestation. The lacquer can be directly applied on the wooden surface such as attics, wooden fences, pipes etc. to protect it from insect damage. The spray can be used on the wooden articles and furniture and mattresses to repel the insects.

Liquid concentrate can be applied to the interiors and exteriors of homes, building structures, ceilings, gardens, farms, outhouses, etc. to repel insects from the areas required. In order to maintain the ecosystem, this product will keep the insects away rather than killing them.

Also TermirepelTM is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, EU-BPR, REACH, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.
