Bed bugs are a topic that makes just about everyone cringe.
You’ve heard how hard they are to get rid of, nearly impossible.
However, one Oklahoma man said his company has come up with an all natural product that can get rid of them immediately and said he has the science to back up his claim.
“Bed bugs feed off your blood,” Tony Ingle said.
You can’t see them but you can tell where they’ve been.
“You can look in your mattress, mainly the seams,” Ingle said. “You’ll find blood splatters and skin that they actually shed.”
They also feed off people.
“Bed bugs actually host from a human and they wait until you’re asleep,” Ingle said. “They’re attracted to you by the carbon dioxide you exhale and your body heat.”
Thirteen years ago, Ingle never imagined he would be a bed bug expert of sorts.
His daughter had breathing problems so the family tried to rid their home of carpet, pets and dust mites.
They got so involved that Ingle began researching ways to kill the mites, eventually developed his own formula to do it and then took it to a biochemist.
The result was a product that not only kills dust mites he claims but bed bugs, as well.
“We tested it, field tested it and proved that it did work,” Ingle said. “Then we took it to Oklahoma State University and we had it lab tested and they proved our product 100 percent effective.”
Ingle and his family now operate a business and have gone mainstream with their products.
Some of their main customers are apartment complexes.
Some of them News Channel 4 has reported about because of bed bug infestations.
But, how do you know if you have a problem?
“The tenants get bit, obviously, and that’s where they start reporting to us,” apartment manager Carmen Myers said. “They’ll have little bites.”
Myers said she called Ingle and the problem was gone.
“They did one treatment and we’ve had no complaints at all,” she said.
A homegrown and all natural solution that is now being sold across the country.
“There’s nothing chemical in our product all the way down to the purified water,” Ingle said. “We don’t even use tap water. It’s 100 percent natural. No chemicals. No toxins.”
Ingle’s company sells the solution in small bottles for individual home use and gallon size.
