Does VA -88 work on any other pests?

YESS !!!!  Cimi – Shield utilizes a revolutionary approach, the “mechanical kill,” which evaporates the waxy layer on Bed Bugs causing them to dehydrate and die. This means it works on morphologically similar pests such as German and American cockroaches, ants, fleas, ticks, silverfish, and carpet beetles.

What is 25 B Exempt and why is it so important?

– The minimum risk pesticides are a special class of pesticides that are not subject to federal registration requirements because their ingredients, both active and inert, are demonstrably safe for the intended use. Cimi-Shield was evaluated by the American Entomological Institute and proven to be 25 B exempt. It is Soybean Oil based and among the safest products in the pest control industry. It uses all natural ingredients and is harmless to both children and pets.
