A study was conducted by the Rutgers University Entomology Lab recently comparing effectiveness between some most seen over-the-counter products and identified EcoRaider, a product provided by Reneotech Inc, as the top bed bug killer among 11 other brands. This study highlights the effectiveness of this all-natural bed bug spray and provides an alternative for synthetic pesticides being used inside a home.
The Rutgers Entomology Laboratory, one of the most renowned in the country, conducted two sequential experiments analyzing the effectiveness of each spray on a number of bed bugs from a pre-determined distance. As reported in Pest Control Technology, "EcoRaider caused 100 percent mortality after 10 days in both tests."
With the expense of heat and steam treatments often the only alternatives pursued by homeowners, an effective and safe do-it-yourself solution to complement or replace such costly efforts has been pursued. With many products on the market making unsupported claims and with limited government regulation, the need for a scientific study was necessary to clarify which products are truly effective.
"We have worked tirelessly on the formulation of our product," said Vincent Yancoskie, the EcoRaider spokesperson. “The fact that we have strict FDA GRAS compliance ensures the user that all ingredients are natural or safe cosmetic grade. And this study confirms its effectiveness."
In addition, the Federal Trade Commission has grown increasingly concerned about unsubstantiated claims from bed bug sprays both in terms of their alleged effectiveness and their safety claims. This resulted in fines of several hundred thousand dollars administered by the FTC. One manufacturer even claimed their spray created an "invisible barrier" against future infestations.
