0 Review: Stop bugging me!

Bed bugs are getting more and more attention these days. You see on the news and online how there is a big problem with bed bugs, especially during travel. I've been introduced to a product that safely kills and prevents bed bugs - Stop Bugging Me!

Seriously, this is a real fear of mine. When travelling especially I fear the unseen things like bed bugs that could be on me as I sleep. Even now as I'm writing this, I'm thinking back to the hotels / motels that I've stayed in and all the bed bugs that I probably encountered. I wish I would have had this product handy in my suitcase during my travels.
About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs, derived from their preference for living in areas people like to sleep. They look no bigger than a sesame seed with a brownish or red color and their eggs look like white rice before they hatch.
These parasitic insects feed on human blood and while they can survive up to a year without it, they prefer to feed every five to ten days.
Capable of feeding largely unnoticed, the main indication of bed bug bites is persistent itching and skin rashes. The saliva has anesthetics in it so that you cannot feel the bite as it contains proteins that can cause a potentially dangerous allergic reaction. 
Due to the difficulty in treating and eliminating bed bugs, these pests can often leave lasting psychological affects.
Bed bugs do not transmit disease and are not related to sanitation – the cleanest homes can have them. They do not jump or fly, but because bed bugs are so small and thin, they can hide in very narrow cracks, and move quickly over walls, floors and furniture to spread basically anywhere.

When first introduced to the product Stop Bugging Me, I had to check it out. As far as I know, I don't have bed bugs or ever have but absolutely promote a product that will kill and prevent bed bugs from reaching my family. I was sent sample spray bottles that are convenient for suitcases. This is an insecticide, but safe to use around children and pets.
  • Proven 100% Effective in Independent Laboratories
  • Safely Kills and Repels Bed Bugs
  • A Green, Non-Toxic Formulation
  • Safe for Use Around the Entire Family - Including Pets
  • FDA GRAS, EPA FIFRA 25(b) Approved
  • Can Be Used Directly on Beds and Linens
  • Sprayable On Just About Everything

I was pleasantly surprised that it doesn't have a chemical scent. The scent is botanical. You spray directly onto your bedding and furniture and don't have to worry about it staining. Keep in mind, this is with detergent-safe materials. Don't be spraying on a silk dry-clean only comforter. 

I am happy that I got the opportunity to try out Stop Bugging Me. Check them out for more into HERE. This will most definitely be included in my suitcase the next time I travel.
