MASHPEE, Mass. — Amid reports of a nationwide bed bug outbreak, a new pesticide-free solution has hit the market.

Stop Bugging Me!, a natural bed bug treatment designed for at-home and commercial use, can be sprayed directly onto any detergent-safe upholstery, including bedding, linens and clothing, killing bed bugs and their eggs. Stop Bugging Me! includes such natural, active ingredients as 2-phenethyl propionate (a natural insecticide), eugenol, sodium lauryl sulfate, geraniol and cinnamon oil with aromatic bark.

In line with its product launch, Rocasuba, the maker of Stop Bugging Me!, has rolled out a marketing campaign that includes a billboard in New York’s Times Square, as well as a new website, StopBuggingMe.com, which features the latest bed bug research, a competitive product analysis, frequently asked questions and an online store.

Stop Bugging Me! is available in a 3-oz. travel-size spray for $7.99 and a 12-oz. spray for $19.99.

For commercial use, Stop Bugging Me! is available in the following sizes:

  • 32-oz. size for $14.75;

  • 64-oz. size for $26.25;

  • 128-oz. size for $46;

  • 5 gal. for $200; and

  • 55 gal. for $2,000.

Also available for at-home, commercial and industrial use is Stop Bugging Me!-MAX, a water-based insecticide that kills bed bugs and their eggs on contact and provides residual pest-killing power for up to three months. The nonflammable, nonaerosol and odor-free formula now is available in 32-oz., 1-gal., 5-gal. and 55-gal. sizes. Additionally, Rocasuba said it also is gearing up to launch Stop Bugging Me! laundry additive, naturally derived and formulated to safely and effectively kill bed bugs and dust mites in bedding and washable clothing.

Stop Bugging Me! products currently are available online and at CVS/pharmacy and Walgreens, with additional drug, mass and grocery retailers to be announced.

Your day isn't that good. You had a horrifying nightmare the night before. You peed in your bed. You're already late on your appointment. What an awful morning! This could be you though. Then, your right arm starts to get itchy. You hunt for the spot and relieved yourself by scratching. The next minute, your left knee itches, then there's another spot in your navel, your right elbow, your back, your butt. Oh my God! Your whole body is itching! http://www.bed-bugs.net/Bed-Bug-Killer/

Without a doubt bed bugs are the most difficult to kill pests, they caused me a lot of trouble before finally having them removed from my home. My salvation was terminixpestcontroloffers.com, nothing I used before that helped much... I remember being so desperate that I almost moved put of my house!

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Freschetta has introduced two products to its lineup of frozen pizza: Freschetta Simply…Inspired Pizzas and Freschetta By The Slice. 

"We know consumers’ tastes have evolved, and they are seeking more flavorful variations in their frozen pizza selections, which until now is a need that hasn’t been met," said Mary Brown, Freschetta’s senior director of marketing. "With Freschetta Simply…Inspired Pizzas, we are elevating the quality of frozen pizza with distinctive combinations of large-cut vegetables, flavorful sauces and delightful varieties of cheeses and meats to create new varieties unseen before in this category. And for when our consumer is time-strapped, Freschetta By The Slice provides the perfect solution when seeking one perfect slice of pizza in minutes."

According to the company, the Simply…Inspired collection goes beyond the traditional frozen pizza and incorporates such unique ingredients as roasted red peppers and shitake mushrooms. Freschetta said that it also utilized its latest packaging in its Simply…Inspired line. Each of the eight varieties is wrapped in new Fresch-Taste Seal packaging that the company claims uses 30% less packing by weight than a traditional pizza carton.

The Freschetta By The Slice product offers consumers the convenience of a single slice of pizza in minutes. According to the company, this single-slice variety is cut from a whole pizza, is made from the same ingredients found in all Freschetta pizzas and provides an oven-baked taste right out of the microwave.
