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.
