My Cleaning Products said that bed bug infestation cases keep on increasing despite efforts to decrease them. To help the public strengthen their protection against the said infestation, the company published a new guide on FAQ format on its website and suggested the use of the pesticide-exempt Bed Bug Bully.

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 06, 2013

According to My Cleaning Products, because bed bugs are now widespread than ever, everyone is at a bigger risk of being infested. It is, therefore, important to prepare for the worst, it said.

To get ready for the possible bed bug infestation, MCP said that one must learn everything he could about the blood-fed insects. That way, he would know exactly what to do when the pests are detected. And with the right steps done promptly, bed bug infestation could be prevented early, explained the company.

On its published guide, My Cleaning Products presented to its readers the basic information one must learn about bed bugs via the FAQ format. It listed questions from bed bug detection to bed bug infestation and also answered them promptly.

One question, in particular, that MCP included on its guide is what do bed bugs look like. And to answer that, the company said that they are small and fast-paced. But for a clearer image of them, it advised readers to see pictures of bed bugs. Apart from showing them their exact appearance, the company stated that pictures of bed bugs could help anyone differentiate the blood-fed insects from other common house pests.

With regards to bed bug elimination, My Cleaning Products said that a bed bug victim has several treatment options. Nonetheless, for a convenient, easy, effective and inexpensive bed bug elimination, it stated that the use of a bed bug spray is the best to implement. However, it clarified that bed bug spray must also be safe apart from effective for the process to truly work.

Among the many bed bug sprays, Bed Bug Bully was the only one MCP recommended. As it said, it is pesticide-exempt as approved by FIFRA 25(b), so it is safe.

The company also announced on its published guide that samples of Bed Bug Bully are now available. It encouraged the public to get them, so they could prove it themselves the safety and effectiveness of Bed Bug Bully.

My Cleaning Products shared Bed Bug Bully complimentary samples are available on its website, MyCleaningProducts.com.

Weegee's Killer Decade

Post date: January 7th, 2013

Steps away from the sanitized, commercialized and pacified Times Square is a portal to a sinister urban past, where two-bit hoods lay sprawled in pools of blood with stogies clenched in their lifeless jaws, watched over by the police and the curious alike. It’s a world of men with guns and hats who played their final hands under elevated tracks and tenements that have long since vanished.

A sprawling show devoted to an intense decade in the city’s history opens Friday at the International Center of Photography. “Weegee: Murder Is My Business” delivers on its promise, and then some, showcasing the work of the legendary photographer Arthur Fellig from 1935 to 1946.  He had a knack for being in the right place at the right time. More importantly, he had a unique visual style – like in his photo of a Little Italy homicide titled “Balcony Seats at a Murder.” Transcending the just-the-facts approach of routine police crime scene photography, he captured the details and drama, the humor and the horror, along the city’s streets.

Though some images turn on sight gags and ironic puns, there are many more that show an unmatched and unsentimental feel for the streets and its denizens. While Weegee could be equal parts huckster and hustler, he was also dedicated to his work, said Brian Wallis, the show’s curator.

“One of the things we wanted to correct with this show was that view of him as a naïf or a buffoon, who just happened to take pictures,” he said. “He was a serious and well-respected photographer who worked in a tradition that was denigrated as tabloid photography. He didn’t know the world of museums and galleries, but he did know one thing very well: the streets of New York. He took that seriously.”

Strains of jazz and police sirens waft through the center’s galleries, where visitors descend a staircase, under a replica of the big gun sign that marked where Weegee once lived — across Center Street from the old police headquarters. It leads to a re-creation – tidied and spartan – of his old room, down to the scanner, tear sheets and can of bed bug killer. You can almost smell the cigar smoke – though in the city today, that now passes for a crime in most places.

The re-creation of his room is fitting for a man who sort of created himself. Mr. Wallis explained how Weegee had seen himself as a photo detective, inhabiting the world of cops and journalists. The show starts with images of Weegee at crime scenes – including a mid-1930s spread from Life Magazine where he documented a criminal’s journey from arrest to jailing.

He was the model.

“He set up the shots with his buddies from the police department,” Mr. Wallis said. “The editors at Life said ‘This is fantastic, but it’s not what we hired you to do. The story is you.’ So they ran a story on him. From then on, he was off to the races.”

Mr. Wallis said Weegee stood out among other photographers in a city saturated with newspaper shooters by working freelance and at night. The former gave him flexibility. That latter gave him opportunity.

“What happened at night?” Mr. Wallis said. “People get shot. People get drunk. People get in car wrecks. He established a niche and specialty.”

The arrival of the groundbreaking newspaper, PM, gave him a venue for regular and more ambitious work.  With Ralph Steiner as the photo editor, Weegee’s work took a dimension of storytelling that had been absent from his earlier output.

“Most murders he took one shot, three at most,” Mr. Wallis said. “At PM, he did some of his best work. They gave him free rein, he had input on how the pictures were laid out, how the captions read and the story, too. And since it was a daily, he was cranking it out.”

Such experiences would hint at his other work, that showed the city beyond the blood: where European immigrants and migrants from down South settled into teeming blocks, where the Depression was beginning to lift, gangsters were fighting for turf and the world was at war.  A broader view is hinted at in a part of the exhibit that details his 1941 show at the Photo League.

The world of earnest, political photographers exemplified by the Photo League might seem an odd fit for Weegee, though not in Mr. Wallis’ consideration.

“How could he fit in with what they were trying to do?” Mr. Wallis said. “The Photo League had a street-level view of working-class New York. They documented the people, though they tended to be romantic. Weegee had an unvarnished take.”

Among the final images in the show are various tear sheets from PM. They are yellowed and look brittle. Above them is an array of images, some light, others serious. They show the city – bustling, noisy, crazy – from wayward cars, revelers at a bar and summer crowds at Coney Island. A headline to one spread offers a fitting coda:

These Are Real People Showing Emotion.

Bedbug Chasers In the past few years, stories of bedbug infestations have become media staples, and with good reason: The little buggers, which hide in mattress crevices and need a "blood meal" to finish their mating cycle, have returned in force to all 50 states, despite having been almost eradicated in the U.S. in the 20th century. The reason they're back? The new generation of bugs are not native to North America, and after decades of being sprayed with DDT and other powerful insecticides in Asia and other less-regulated parts of the world, they are resistant to most chemicals.

"I think bedbugs are far from overhyped," says Dean Averna, who rediscovered a secret weapon that was used almost a century ago to chase bedbugs from mattresses: heat.

Adult bedbugs die at 118 degrees, and eggs and nymphs shrivel up at 122. Averna, who worked for many years in the infrastructure and critical power industry, saw opportunity in this knowledge. While other companies use the method to rid homes of bedbugs, they lack efficiency, requiring up to four 100- to 200-pound heating units to treat just 700 square feet. And since the large units take eight or nine hours to thoroughly heat an area, the bugs have time to take refuge in walls, crawl spaces or a neighboring apartment. "More often than not they have to come in a second time," Averna says of his competition. "Just one surviving pregnant female can create 13,000 bedbugs in six months and restart the entire infestation."

Averna spent 18 months developing a new heater, one that is only 72 pounds and easily portable; multiple units quickly and evenly heat an entire apartment floor. He works with landlords and hotel owners to treat whole floors to prevent reinfestation. Instead of billing the client for power, Bedbug Chasers brings its own generators to run the machines. Armed with the super heater, the franchise earlier this year became the first to specialize in bedbug removal. Averna is in talks to open 24 units.

Franchisees don't have to pony up for a full truckload of heaters. While most buy four or six for everyday operations, Bedbug Chasers also has regional depots where franchisees can rent more heaters for larger jobs.

While the heaters can control other insects as well, Averna says he does not want to be a full-spectrum pest-control company, and says most business will come from subcontracting with exterminators who don't want to invest in their own heaters. "We're in a good niche position," says Averna, who thinks bedbugs will probably not be eradicated anytime soon. "We come in there like the Ghostbusters and take care of business."
