The nontoxic way to fight bedbugs in hotels

Hotels are a common place for bedbugs to hide and thrive, as they can easily move from room to room and spread throughout a building. Bedbugs can be found in any type of hotel, from budget to luxury, so it’s important to check for them before booking a room. Hotels can become infested with bedbugs if they are not properly maintained. Bedbugs are attracted to warm and dark places, such as bedframes, mattresses, and furniture. They can also be brought into a hotel by guests who have them in their luggage. Signs of a bedbug infestation include small, red bites on the skin and small, reddish-brown stains on sheets and pillowcases, tiny black spots on walls, and a sweet, musty odor.

Dad and daughter ‘scared to sleep’ in a Turkish hotel room with bedbugs and cockroaches

The daughter allegedly had to be placed on a drip following bug bites

December 14th, 2022

A father and daughter claim to have found bed bugs and cockroaches in their hotel room during a holiday in Turkey.

Joe and Sara Palmer from Blackheath, London, had flown to Turkey from London Gatwick with TUI in October for a two-week holiday.

The pair allege that they were bitten by bed bugs during their stay, with bites so severe that Sara had to be placed on a drip in hospital for an hour and given four types of drugs to combat the swelling.

Ms Palmer also claimed to have found a large cockroach on the floor. She told the Mirror: “It was terrible. We were scared to sleep because we were being bitten constantly.”

She added that she and her father were “constantly itching and uncomfortable” during their stay, and that they “continued to get bitten for the rest of the holiday”. She described the trip as a “nightmare”.

“We contacted head of guest relations who said they would clean and disinfect the whole room,” Ms Palmer added. They later arrived with cleaner and a bottle of bug killer, sprayed the pillow and curtains, and reportedly said they would come back to do the rest.

North Carolina pregnant woman claims she was bitten by bedbugs during stay at popular Pittsburgh hotel

Sary Martinez says she found bedbugs in her room at the Wyndham Grand hotel.

December 13, 2022

Sary Martinez, who is 20 weeks pregnant, says she checked into the hotel on Thursday, Dec. 8, for two nights.

Now back in North Carolina, she shared her story with Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 Monday night.

“We are still kind of in shock. We are still like, ‘Did this really happen?’” Sary Martinez said.

Martinez said she and her husband flew to Pittsburgh for her husband’s work holiday party.

“We were really excited, just to get to know the town, we have never been in that area,” Martinez said.

After a busy day, Martinez said it was time for bed.

“Around 3 a.m., I woke up, and I was wearing a sweatshirt and I woke up, and I was just itching. My arms were just itching,” Martinez said.

At first, Martinez says she didn’t think much of it, but by the next day, her condition got worse. She showed Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 pictures of the bites all over her body.

“I said, ‘OK, I think it’s time to check for bed bugs.’ … I moved the mattress away, and I went like this on the seam, and all I saw was dark stuff, lined all across the headboard area, and I thought, ‘Is that dirt?’” Martinez said.

Martinez says she put several bedbugs into a cup to show hotel staff and they were given a new room.

“That was it. We were just told the moment we were moved to another room, ‘I am sorry there is no refund because it was prepaid. We will give you a $50 discount if you eat at the restaurant downstairs,’ which we said, ‘No thank you,’” Martinez said.

Besides the money, Martinez said she wanted to know the situation was being taken seriously but wasn’t given any information about what was being done.

“What happened to the room? Was it cleaned? You know it’s bed bugs. It’s not like you can brush them off. It’s not a spider. There are many ways this should have been handled. In the moment, it was addressed so lightly that I thought that was the norm, but it is not. It is a public health concern,” Martinez said.

As of now, Martinez says she is waiting for an inspection report from hotel management to see how they will proceed.

Bedbug infestation is a public concern. Bedbugs can cause health complications like sleep deprivation and anemia from loss of blood. Although the bites are itchy, and often require over-the-counter treatment to relieve the itchiness. If you suspect you may have an infestation, don’t worry we are here to help!

C Tech Corporation has found an eco-friendly solution for it. The product is called TermirepelTM. The company believes to provide uncompromising quality products to customers and this product is an excellent insect repellent that is extremely low toxic, and extremely low hazardous in nature.

TermirepelTM is made with a mechanism such that, the product temporarily blocks the mating cycle of these insects and causes feeding disruption by creating discomfort within the insects. The product weakens the ability of insects to reproduce which means, female insects will not lay eggs and laid eggs will be infertile. The product disturbs the release of vital hormones which are essential for insects to grow. 

TermirepelTM is available in various forms such as masterbatch, paint additives, wood polish furniture, lacquer, and spray.

The wood polish additive can be applied over the furniture or wooden article to prevent infestation. The wood polish additive needs to be mixed with regular wood polish and then used. The lacquer can be directly applied on wooden surfaces such as attics, wooden fences, cabinets, and other furniture, etc. to protect it from insect damage. The spray can be used on wooden articles and furniture and mattresses to repel bedbugs and other insects.

The liquid concentrate can be diluted with paints and applied to the interiors and exteriors of hotels, building structures, outhouses, restaurants, etc. to repel insects from the areas required. In order to maintain the ecosystem, this product will keep the insects away rather than killing them.

Also, TermirepelTM is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, EU-BPR, REACH, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Co-existing with termites – the key wood decomposers

There are many different types of insects that make their homes in wood, but termites are one of the most common and the most helpful. Without them, many ecosystems wouldn’t be able to sustain themselves. Termites are small insects that can live just about anywhere there is wooden material. They don’t create their own nests; they take up residence in pre-existing structures. There are more than 1,000 species of termites found all over the world.

These social creatures get along fairly well with other organisms when it comes to living in a mutually beneficial setup called a colony. They thrive in damp, humid environments and like to eat wood from time to time, but they do have some benefits for us as humans as well as other animals and plants that share their environment. Let’s take a look at how termites contribute to your ecosystem.

Termites are known more commonly for their destructive, rather than constructive, nature. Termites feed on organic matter, especially plant material. They also produce termite feces that can be used as a natural pesticide. These insects are therefore an important part of the ecosystem by performing a variety of important functions. The termite is the only insect that has both wood and terms of its own! Termites live in colonies called Termite Castles. These termite castles are made up of millions of individual termite eggs laid together to make tough, waterproof shelters called castles. In some places, termites may play an important role in controlling the abundance of certain pests like ants and beetles.

Here is an interesting read from the Mirage News signifying the importance of termites in our ecosystem:

Termites are key wood decomposers and could play a significant role in future ecosystems

Most people think termites are a nuisance that consumes wood in homes and businesses. In reality, these termites represent less than four percent of all termite species worldwide. Termites are critical in natural ecosystems-especially in the tropics-because they are key players in wood decomposition. The world would be piled high with dead plants and animals without termites.

Forested ecosystems contain over 675 billion metric tons of biomass; a significant fraction of that biomass has been immobilized for centuries in wood. According to new research, and in conjunction with current global change trends, where we expect warming shifts to tropical climates in many areas around the planet, the effect termites could have on wood decay is likely to increase as termites are predicted to have access to ecosystems where they are not currently present.​

In an international study that collected data in 133 sites spanning 20 countries, assistant professor Paul-Camilo Zalamea and research associate Carolina Sarmiento from the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of South Florida, along with more than 100 collaborators, learned that termites are pivotal when it comes to breaking down wood, contributing to the earth’s carbon cycle. Their research also showed that termites are very sensitive to temperature and rainfall – as temperatures heat up, the termite’s role in wood decay will likely expand beyond the tropics.

“We found that termite discovery and wood consumption were highly sensitive to temperature. This result has tremendous consequences for understanding carbon storage,” said Zalamea, also a research associate at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama.

For the study, published in the journal Science, lead author Amy Zanne (University of Miami) and collaborators studied wood decomposition using the same experimental design replicated in a variety of habitats across six continents.

“This paper results from a massive collaborative effort. In my research group, we were in charge of running the wood decay experiment deployed on Barro Colorado Island (BCI) in Panama,” Zalamea added. “This study is the largest collaboration I have worked on, and it was gratifying to see how the local scale data we collected in Panama was related to the global patterns described in the paper,” Sarmiento added.

Like cows, termites release carbon from the wood as methane and carbon dioxide, which are two of the most important greenhouse gases. Thus, expansions in termite distributions may increasingly contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.

“Before the publication of our paper, little was known about the climate sensitivity of termites in wood decay; now we know that termites are highly sensitive to temperature, considerably more than microbes, widely known in the literature as key players in wood decay,” added Zalamea. “This finding is extremely relevant, because it shows how termites have been overlooked in the past, and it improves our ability to better understand the carbon cycle globally,” Sarmiento added.

C Tech Corporation, India has perfected smart chemistry and combined its principles of green technology to provide a range of aversive repellent products. One such insect aversive repellent, TermirepelTM can be an ideal option to deal with the termites, while protecting our polymeric applications from their attack as well as letting them live and balance the environment.

TermirepelTM is an EU-BPR-approved insect aversive repellent, used also against all types of insects. It works on the mechanism of repellency which means that it does not kill the target insects but only repel them, thus balancing the ecology and helping to maintain a sustainable environment.

TermirepelTM is available in various forms such as masterbatch, liquid concentrate, lacquer gel, wood polish additive, and spray.

The masterbatch is used at the industrial level to produce polymeric applications like cables, pipes, films, fences, etc. that are termite and insect repellent.

TermirepelTM available in a liquid concentrate, which can be mixed with paints in a specific ratio and can be used for painting applications.

TermirepelTM is available as lacquer, which is a topical application and it is compatible with most surfaces like polymer, metal, ceramic, wood, etc. so it can be applied directly.
