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. 5 Star Hotels and Resorts Retail Establishments Movie Theaters & Entertainment complexes Public Schools & Universities Airplanes/Airports Public Transportation Apartment Buildings Cruise Lines Taxi Cabs Hospitals
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 its 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 1 st 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.
