Bed bugs are nasty insects. They bite you and cause physical problems such as skin rashes and allergies. Bed bugs tend to feed on human blood, though they feed on animal blood as well. This article will help you if you have a bed bug problem in your house. Yes, it’s difficult to get rid of beg bugs, but it’s not impossible. There are a number of ways you can get rid of bed bugs naturally without the use of toxic chemicals. However, before you learn how to kill bed bugs, you need to understand the difference between bed bugs and other insects. You might confuse bed bug bites with mosquito bites as most of the people do. I have written a good article that will help you in identifying if the bites you have are of bed bugs or not.
When you are sure that you have a bed bug problem, you should try all the natural methods for getting rid of them. I am a strong advocate of natural things, so start by cleaning your home problems, changing sheets and steam cleaning. If all the natural techniques don’t solve your problem, then you should consider using FabriClear. FabriClear is a promising product as the ingredients used in it are very effective for getting rid of bed bugs.
FabriClear active ingredients are, Geraniol (1%), peppermint oil (0.02%), soybean oil (0.02%), citric acid (0.01%) and inert ingredients (98.95%) such as water, polyglyceryl oleate and glyceryl dicaprylate. You might be familiar with some of the ingredients used in FabriClear. For those who are thinking what these ingredients are and why are they used, here’s a brief description of each ingredient.
Geraniol is a monoterpenoid (naturally organic chemical similar to terpene) and an alcohol. Geraniol can be found in geranium, lemon and many other essential oils. Geranoil has been proven effective against wide variety of insects such as mosquitoes, house flies, horn flies, cockroaches, and fleas. Geranium is known to be a naturally repelling insect plant with Geraniol being the key ingredient responsible for that.
Peppermint oil is derived from the peppermint plant, a cross between water mint and spearmint that thrives in Europe and North America. Peppermint oil is commonly used as flavoring in foods and beverages and as a fragrance in soaps and cosmetics. Peppermint oil also is used for a variety of health conditions and can be taken orally in dietary supplements or topically as a skin cream or ointment. But it’s also used as an active ingredient in FabriClear. Why? I’m glad you asked.
Peppermint oil or pulegone irritates any insect that is pheromone sensitive. It forces bed bugs to flee, usually into the walls away from the initial area. It kills some of the bed bugs by damaging the exoskeleton as they return to feed on humans. Peppermint oil also adds a slight fragrance to FabriClear, which makes it easier to be in a room after this product is used.
While soybean oil has no direct insect repellent property, it is used as a fixative to extend the short duration of action of essential oils such as geranium oil in several commercial products, Geraniol in FabriClear for example. Soybean extends the action of the ingredients in FabriClear.
Citric acid is a weak organic acid, and it is a natural preservative and is also used to add an acidic, or sour, taste to foods and soft drinks. In biochemistry, it is important as an intermediate in the citric acid cycle and therefore occurs in the metabolism of virtually all living things. It can also be used as an environmentally benign cleaning agent or to help in the process of eliminating insects. This biodegradable acid is low in toxicity and is relatively noncorrosive making it an ideal treatment for residential or commercial rest prevention.
Components which (irrespective of their relative quantity) do not help directly in achieving a product’s performance objectives are called inert ingredients. They may, however, facilitate acceptance, application, stability, handling or marketing of the product, or delivery of the active ingredients. The inert ingredients in FabriClear are natural and safe such as water, polyglyceryl oleate and glyceryl dicaprylate.
While calling a professional to solve your bed bugs problem is an option, it is an expensive option. Moreover professional insect exterminators use chemical that can be harmful for you and your household. FabriClear is a safe product as compared to other products available in the market. The ingredients used in it are harmless for humans but really harmful for bed bugs.
