Hitchhiking Across the Globe
The past decade has seen an astronomical resurgence of Bed Bugs
believed to be almost extinct in the 1900s.
Increased International Travel and prohibition of DDT in the US are
believed to be the factor.
These parasitic pests are currently earning a costly (and itchy)
reputation by infesting all types of spaces where people travel, sit
and sleep, and spreading out beyond just the bed.

Significant Emotional & Financial Tolls
 76% of pest professionals
say bed bugs are the most
difficult pest to treat – more
than cockroaches, ants and
termites*
 “Some bed-bug experts
say it’s not unusual for an
infested family or company
to spend upwards of $5,000
in its efforts to get rid of the
critters.” – New York Times
*University of Kentucky Bed Bug Survey
The Current Marketplace
 Dangerous: Current pesticides are unsafe for guest
customers and staff to come in contact with
 Ineffective: Re-branded formulations from the last
century prove to be ineffective, capitalizing on the
fears and worries of consumers
 Destructive: Damaged or stained mattresses, retail
items and furniture must be thrown away and come
at a cost to the owner
 Costly: Heat treatments can weigh heavy on the
finances of a company or establishment with an
infestation
 Lengthy: Treatment is usually dragged out over
hours – even days
“If anything, the products
promoted (at the 1st annual Bed
Bug Summit) revealed that there
is, for now, no single, agreed-on
answer to the problem.”
-MONICA DAVEY, New York Times
…UNTIL NOW!

How Stop Bugging Me! works?
 Stop Bugging Me is not a poison that has to be
ingested and takes time to kill the arthropods
 The unique formula actually blocks the otopamine
receptors of the Arthropod. By blocking these
receptors you are effectively stopping all motor
functions of the arthropod.
 The ability to kill instantly and not act as a poison
means that there will be no way for the arthropod to
build a tolerance to the chemical and it will be
impossible for them to pass it unto there off spring.
