As I have mentioned, I am going on a trip in December and will be stuck in a plane for over 6+ hours. I am a HUGE germaphobe and get chills thinking about germs, insects and bugs, so you can imagine how worried I'd be about sitting on a plane seat. They do not wash them after each flight, and I do not know who sat in the seat prior to myself. I won't even get started on the pillows and blankets they hand out, yuk!
Thanks to the wonderful people at Stop Bugging Me! I received five bottles of their Stop Bugging Me! Bed Bug Spray bottles; two 12oz. bottles and three 3oz. bottles, which retail for $19.99 and $7.99 respectively. The 3oz. size bottle is travel-size and you will want to take one with you if you are flying. Stop Bugging Me! is safe to use around kids and pets, which sold me immediately. The 12oz. bottle can treat up to 7 queen-size mattresses, and the 3oz can treat 2 queen-size mattresses. So how does this work? You simple spray it on your mattress, where it kills over 50% of bed bugs in 30 seconds and 100% within 15 minutes. The smell of the spray is not offensive whatsoever, it has no strong chemical-type smell, but it still leads me to leave the room until it dies down.
I am especially happy that this product in naturally derived, 100% biodegradable and safe for use around kids and pets. The spray is specially marketed to kill bed bugs but can also be used to control other pests like ants, dust mites, cockroaches, spiders, termites, ticks, carpet beetles and other skin-tingling crawling pests. I have used it on my queen-size mattress over the month AND used it to rid my room of ants. Ants are horrible over the summer, you leave a piece of candy out and in the morning my room is crawling with ants. I vacuum the ants and then spray the area with Stop Bugging Me! spray and they don't come back. It was wonderful to have handy.
The travel size bottle is great to carry around in your bag for use on plane seat, theater seats, luggage, your bag and many other surfaces. I will def. be using this on mine and my families plane seats and our luggage as soon as we arrive at our house in Nicaragua. A huge thanks to Stop Bugging Me! for helping germaphobes like not worry about getting infested with bed bugs on a long flight! :)
