The Results are In!


1. Cimi-Shield residues affect the ability of bed bugs to actively walk or move after about 72 hours of exposure.

2. Aging of Cimi-Shield residues for 1- to 3-months slightly lowers its speed of kill, however, 83-87% bed bug mortality (by day 14) is still achievable.

3. Although Cimi-Shield is a 25 (b) category natural product that is exempt from EPA registration, it displays very high residual efficacy against bed bugs.
