Currently, when you treat a house, for bed bugs or other insects, there are certain items you can't treat such as electronics, DVDS, books...

If you have a lot of extra clothing and shoes, and children's toys and you name it lying around, they're all potential hiding places for bed bugs. And it's not easy for a Pest Control Professional to treat every single one of those individually. In fact, it's often impossible.
With CIRKIL's RAG IN A BAG, we've developed a method where you can take your books, your electronics, other delicates, put them into a bag, take a cloth or paper towel, treat it with CIRKIL, place that into the bag seal that bag up -- for up to 5 days -- and all the bugs, including eggs, will be killed
Applying an insecticidal product to a rag that you put inside of a bag with all of your clutter, sealing it up and ensuring that you can kill all of the bugs and eggs that might be in that is pretty valuable.
Any of the delicate items in these bags they're not damaged because only vapors are coming into contact with the bugs.
The bed bug's ability to climb into cracks makes it particularly difficult to deal with clutter.
So there are lots of little nooks and crannies in the spine of books that bugs can go (into)
Not only are the adults there, but the adults are in there laying eggs. And they'll crawl as deep as they can go, usually.
Shannon: The RAG IN A BAG protocol is dead simple to figure out. All you've got to do is spray that cloth, and throw it in the bag with your items seal it up and let the product do the work.
Vapors from our product will penetrate those cracks and crevices and kills not only the adults but the eggs as well.
A PMP can save time, by not having callbacks from reinfestation from those items and the residents can save their items, such as their books, and stuff that they would normally have to get rid of, because they're infested.
We've done studies where we filled a bag with 35 books -- both soft cover and hard cover -- had 20 bugs in the bag with the books and had 100% efficacy
I think the PMPs are going to love this product just because it addresses a concern that they all have. And there has not been one way that they can treat it.
So if someone's using a different pesticide to do their broadcast treatment of a suite, they could still use RAG IN A BAG™ to complement that treatment.
The RAG IN A BAG™ protocol requires a plastic bag. Something that's nonporous to trap the vapors inside.
No matter what you throw in there, the bugs will be dead.
I feel that the RAG IN A BAG™ is giving a very useful tool for the PMPs to complete their total bed bug protocol.
