Spartan Chemical Announces a New, Convenient Way to Treat Bed Bug and Lice Infestations
Spartan Chemical Company, Inc., a recognized leader in the formulation and manufacture of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional market, announced today the availability of Bed Bug and Lice Killer, an EPA registered, aerosol product that controls pests for up to four weeks.
Bed bug outbreaks continue to be a problem for industrial and institutional facilities. In fact, they are on the rise according to a survey conducted by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and the University of Kentucky. Polling 7,000 pest management professionals, NPMA found that 58 percent of nursing homes had been treated for bed bugs vs. 46 percent in the 2013 survey; 45 percent vs. 36 percent of offices; and 43 percent vs. 41 percent of schools and daycare centers.
Bed bug infestations can be costly for a facility when considering the impact on revenues associated with repeat business or vacancies. According to Lee Resources, 91% of unhappy customers will not willingly do business with you again if encountering a bed bug incident.
“Bed bug infestations not only impact the hospitality industry; we are seeing growing populations in many other industrial and institutional facilities,” said John Swigart, president, Spartan Chemical Company, “Spartan’s new Bed Bug and Lice Killer makes it simple to treat these infestations and quickly turn the room over for the next customer or patient.”
“In addition, six to twelve million lice infestations occur each year in the United States, according to the CDC,” Swigart continued. “With the majority of schools being cleaned by contractors, it is important that they can administer pest control for this persistent issue.”
Bed Bug and Lice Killer is an EPA registered aerosol product that controls pests for up to four weeks. Designed for use on furniture, mattresses and other non-washable items, Bed Bug and Lice Killer is effective against bed bugs, lice and louse eggs.
