Rocasuba Inc., a privately held manufacturer of health and beauty-care products headquartered in Mashpee, Mass., has launched a new product called Stop Bugging Me! to help protect consumers from bed bugs.

Stop Bugging Me! is a completely natural, green treatment that is safe for the entire family – including pets – and is laboratory tested and proven to eliminate and prevent bed bugs and their eggs on contact, according to a news release.

Now, travelers, residential dwellers, retailers, hoteliers, schools, public transporters and pest control companies can take a proactive approach in controlling bed bug outbreaks and finally say goodbye to bed bugs with this totally new, pesticide-free breakthrough treatment for at-home and commercial use. The spray formula is 100% biodegradable and the environmentally friendly active ingredients are 2-phenethyl propionate, a natural insecticide, eugenol, sodium lauryl sulfate, geraniol and cinnamon oil with aromatic bark.

Why is Stop Bugging Me so important?

  • The majority of bed bug products have pesticides and are harmful to children and pets. Plus, these treatments, including bed bug sniffing dogs, can cost thousands of dollars.
  • Bed bugs crawl and hitchhike everywhere – and can often be found in cracks, crevices, walls when moving summer items out of storage and can even live in patio furniture – and are found in incredibly clean homes. Stop Bugging Me! can be sprayed onto any bed bug prone or infested areas – carpets, floors, decking, furniture, linens, clothing, airplane and train seats, hotel room beds and headboards, luggage and movie theater seats. One spray prevents bed bugs for up to two weeks.
  • Bed bug outbreaks are widespread and not only over the last five years have outbreaks across the country have tripled, the summer of 2011 is projected to be the worst yet. In fact, according to a recent Harris survey, commissioned by Stop Bugging Me!, nearly 75% of Americans would like to know how to protect their homes from bed bugs.
