The Fast and Effective Non-Toxic Way to Eliminate Pests

Cryonite’s patented nozzle design converts liquid carbon dioxide into particles of dry ice. The dry ice emerges from the lance at -78°C (-110°F) and kills pests on contact. Pests cannot build up a resistance to such treatments since no chemicals are involved.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What is Cryonite?

 Cryonite is an alternative to insecticide and chemical-based pest control solutions. This technology is non-toxic and effective. The method consists of spraying frozen (-110 °F) liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) to kill insects. The frozen CO2 freezes insects to death and leaves no residue. Because Cryonite contains zero chemicals, pests will not develop a resistance to the treatment.

What insects are susceptible to Cryonite?

 The most common insects susceptible to Cryonite are roaches, bed bugs, and stored product pests. Some companies have also used Cryonite in their stinging insect protocol. Since the cold snow expelled by the Cryonite applicator is lethal to many insects, it has many potential applications on sensitive accounts and unusual items.

Will Cryonite kill insects or only stun them?

Cryonite will kill most insects. The “snow” expelled by the Cryonite wand is -110 degrees Fahrenheit, killing the vast majority of small and medium-bodied pests on contact. Some larger-bodied insects may survive the blast of snow, particularly if they are harboring in an area that prevents direct contact. In these cases, Cryonite will typically flush and damage the insect, after which they can easily be removed with a vacuum.

Can anyone use Cryonite?

There is no license required to operate Cryonite machinery. Any person who uses the Cryonite equipment should receive training using this manual and other Cryonite training materials before using Cryonite in the field. Typical pesticide regulations should not apply to Cryonite; however, consult your state’s regulations to be certain you remain in compliance.

Happy Customers

I would like to let you know how much we love using your Cryonite machines. We started using them about 4 years ago and have increased our revenue each year since. The units themselves are easy to use and very effective in getting rid of Bedbugs. We have also used them to freeze out roaches from infested homes with great success. The machines are extremely durable as we use them almost every day of the week and have had no real problems with them. Calling and e-mailing your company has also been a pleasure as everyone who has responded has knowledge of the machines, are very pleasant to speak to, and respond quickly. I would absolutely recommend using these units and your company.

Nicholas Ferrante
General Manager, Excel Termite and Pest Control

We have been using the Cryonite System for over 6 years with great results, whether used as a standalone treatment or used in conjunction with other methods. I like the fact that Cryonite can be used almost anywhere and on many sensitive belongings without any adverse effects. Cryonite has become a very valuable tool in all of our bedbug treatments.

Field and Laboratory Testing of Cryonite

Wasps (Vespa vulgaris)

Nests of the yellowjacket were treated with Cryonite applied using low pressure for 30 seconds, then the pressure was gradually increased. All the wasps within the nests were eliminated, and the nests are safely removed and destroyed.

Cockroaches (Blattella germanica)

Successful tests have been completed to eliminate German Cockroaches, Blattella germanica, in factories, houses, and hospitals using Cryonite in combination with diatomaceous earth, a vacuum, and traps.

Flour Beetles (Tribolium spp) and Moths

A variety of tests have been performed to eliminate flour beetles, Tribolium spp) and various species of moths. All the tests demonstrated effective results in the mortality of tested beetles and moths.

Sawtoothed Grain Beetles (Oryzaephilus surinamensis); Cigarette Beetles (Lasioderma serricorne

A bread oven infested with sawtoothed grain beetles, Oryzaephilus surinamensis, and cigarette beetles, Lasioderma serricorne, were treated with Cryonite. The insects were located in lumps of bread crumbs underneath the oven. The test resulted in a significant reduction in beetles despite new raw material continuously flowing through the factory.

Poultry Mites (Dermanyssus gallinae)

Cryonite proved highly effective in controlling poultry mites in poultry houses. Treatment with Cryonite was significantly more effective than treatment with insecticides commonly used to control poultry mites.

Indian Meal Moths (Plodia interpunctella)

This test was conducted in the packaging room of a large potato processing plant where larvae of Indian meal moths, Plodia interpunctella) were found. Cleaning alone failed to eliminate all of the moth larvae in the room so Cryonite was applied to all areas of activity. The treatment resulting in total mortality of larvae present and after two weeks, the room was still free of larvae and adult moths.

Bedbugs (Cimex lectularius)

A field study was conducted to assess the efficacy of a combined Cryonite/diatomaceous earth treatment against bed bugs infesting a hotel room. Each item of furniture or area found to be infested was treated with two slow passes of the Cryonite application Lance. No live bed bugs were discovered during follow-up inspections at one day and one week following the Cryonite/diatomaceous earth treatment.

Bedbugs (Cimex lectularius)

In a laboratory bioassay, bed bug adults, nymphs, and eggs were placed on scrunched cardboard to simulate crack/crevices inside plastic Cylinders. Cryonite was then applied as four bursts onto the bed bugs in the Cylinders. At the 24 hour count, nearly all adults and all nymphs were deceased and zero 1st instar nymphs successfully hatched from treated eggs.

House Cricket (Acheta domestica)

Successful tests have been done on the house cricket (Acheta domestica) in boiler rooms and other similar warm sites. Treatment first with Cryonite followed by physical removal with a vacuum provided satisfactory results in the elimination of infesting crickets.
