A few years ago, a bunch of new tech startups were born, with names like Bedbug, Bed Bug, Bedbugster, BedBugMatter, Bedbugs4Bugs,BedbugBag,BedBugLaundry,BedBugs1Matter and BedbugLaundries4Matter.
Some of these companies are now household names, with brands like the one below:BedbugMatter (BMS)Bats are the bed bugs of the house, and it’s easy to imagine how the industry might react to the arrival of BedbugMeter.
Bedbugs and bed bugs have long been an industry issue in the US.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) estimates that bed bugs cause an estimated $150 billion in economic damage every year.BMS was founded in 2014, with a mission to solve the problem by building bed bugs-free washing machines.
“It’s the bed bug issue in a nutshell,” says CEO Mike Vadon.
“There are a lot of people who are out there that don’t wash their clothes and who are trying to find ways to get rid of bed bugs.”
To that end, BMS has been testing a range of bed bug detergents, starting with a brand of soap called Batmea, which can be used to eliminate the bedbug’s bites.
BMS is also looking into a range a bed bug soap called Nightbreath.
It uses natural ingredients like lemon and garlic and also contains antibacterial ingredients.
“I’m not sure how we’re going to be able to stop all the bedbugs,” Vadons says.
“The more bed bugs we eliminate, the more bedbugs we create.”BMS is currently testing the company’s Bedbug Bags, which are designed to trap bed bugs in plastic.
This is an early version of the products, and there is no timetable for when they’ll be available.
Bats also make a line of bedbug-killing wipes called Bedbug-Blur.
These are intended for use in kitchens, kitchenspaces and bathrooms, and are made of a combination of detergent and a natural insect repellent.
These products are available for purchase on Amazon, which has a large selection of bedbugs-killing products.
Bites, especially bites that occur in the hands, are particularly problematic.
“We see people who have very close contact with the bed, who are very close to the bedding, and who have been treated with this bedbug product,” Vaden says.
The products don’t stop bedbugs from being active.
“If someone comes into the shower, or a bath, they are going to come into contact with some sort of bedworm,” Vadsons says, but it’s important to know the difference between a bedbug and a bed bugs.
“These are all things that are not harmful to you,” he says.
Vadon says that the company is still looking into how to best make these products available.
“One of the things that we have to think about is the health risks to the people using these products,” he explains.
“How are we going to protect them from this risk?”
The BedbugBags, Batmeas, Nightburs and BedBugBlur products are currently available for $20 on Amazon.
They can also be purchased at BedBug’s online store, and will be available in the coming weeks for $40.
“Bugs and bedbugs have been a major concern in our home for years, so we wanted to make sure that we were creating the safest product possible,” says Vadones.
“For people who live in places where bedbugs are a problem, the BedBugBags are the best products that we can provide.”
