Bedbugs making their way into a movie theater

Have you ever been to a scary movie in a theater? Well in a theater there is something scarier than what is on the screen. Yes, we are talking about the scary bedbugs. With soft cushy seats and a large number of human hosts, the theater is the real estate of bedbugs. Bedbugs are the small parasitic insect that always feeds on human blood, as they are just like an apple seed which have a similar reddish-brown colour. The tiny bedbugs which are also known as baby bedbugs are colorless which is even more difficult to spot; they are the hearty suckers and can live up to 1 year without any meal.

Bedbugs find thousands of hiding places inside movie theaters; they reside in the cracks and crevices of the seats. The human body gives out carbon dioxide as well as heat; the bedbugs get attracted and feed upon an unsuspecting host. The bedbugs lay hundreds of eggs where they hide as a result of which their population keeps on growing. The bedbugs thrive in the theater to receive a good supply of blood meals every day.

Let us have a look at some of the evidence,

Tiny bugs crawl all over carpet at Ontario AMC Theatres

By Rob McMillan

ONTARIO, Calif. (KABC) —

Disturbing cellphone video shows tiny bugs crawling all over the carpet at the AMC Theatres at the Ontario Mills Mall.

Corey Virgilio recorded the disgusting footage while he was at auditorium 16 to watch the film, “Bohemian Rhapsody” around 7 p.m. Sunday.

“We’re sitting in the movie theater. I dropped my keys on the floor. I didn’t want to ruin the movie for anybody, so I said, you know what, I’ll just get it after the movie,” Virgilio said.

He said he pulled out his cellphone and got down on his hands and knees to look for his keys beneath the seats.

“As I look with my cellphone light to try to find my keys, I zoom in and I see something moving,” Virgilio said. “As I zoom in closer and closer, I find easily seen with my eye, at least 15, 20 bugs.”

Virgilio said he immediately notified the movie theater manager and then posted footage of the bugs on Facebook.

He said something needs to be done about these kinds of filthy conditions.

Woman claims bed bugs bit her at Independence Movie Theater

By: Sean Hirshberg

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — A movie theater that has a history of bed bug complaints now has another one.

Shannon Cunningham told 41 Action News Monday that she believes bed bugs bit her at the AMC Theater in Independence.

“We were there for about 10 minutes of the previews and the next thing I know, we’re sitting there in the dark and I start getting ate up,” Cunningham said. “It felt like crawling, like something was moving on your ankle, like going across your leg.”

The Buckner, Missouri woman said she later found two red marks she believed were bites. She said those marks later swelled up.

Cunningham said she took her complaint to a manager, who told her they’ve had several complaints.

“He stated that they are trying to do something about it and how there’s been bug companies out constantly,” she said. “But he says it’s been a problem for quite some time.”

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™ available in the form of the liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio and be applied on the material which needs to be protected from bedbugs.

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, which can be incorporated into the polymeric applications like pipes, wires, cables, polymeric material, instruments and equipment which we use at Theaters.

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. It is RoHS, RoHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.
