Bedbugs Being Dealt With By Tough, Heartless Science
Researchers at Stony Brook University have developed a product that they say, "literally stops bedbugs in their tracks" in a report from Laboratory Equipment.
What they have and how it works is best described as like the workings of a spider web. Once something gets caught ... that's it, party over.
The bedbug experts have developed a web-like product with microfibers 50 times thinner than a human hair. This stuff can catch the smallest of insect, for the most part.
So in come the bedbugs on a little stroll that might have ended on your leg but they (and any other bug that comes along) get entangled and trapped in the web.
God, I hope they never turn that stuff on me. Sounds effective. There will be no last personal experience for any of these insects. They will all die the same death.
This new, patent-pending tech is being offered for commercial purposes by Fibertrap, a company that specializes in non-toxic pest control methods. More on this as details are revealed.
