Even Staying at upscale hotels, motels and bed and breakfast establishments won’t always keep you safe from picking up a bug or two. If you don't get them from a hotel, what about the plane, train, bus or taxi? Who knows where your luggage goes or whose baggage it is sitting next to in the luggage compartment? Even the rental car could be a source for an unwanted stowaway. BAG THE BUGS™ is your opportunity to stop bed bugs and other insects from infesting your home! Just bag the luggage and let it sit for a day or two. All bugs will be killed safely and organically.
With this product you can travel anywhere with total freedom and without concerns about picking up any unwanted stowaways. When you arrive at a destination that you would like to protect from insect infestation, simply drop your baggage into a BAG THE BUGS™ bag and let it go to work for you.
Insects like to hide in small, dark places and lay their eggs. Bacteria, fungi and mold could be anywhere. The good news is that BAG THE BUGS™ bags kills these things, too! In fact, BAG THE BUGS™ bags are so versatile that they exterminate ALL air-dependent organisms safely and without pesticides. If any baggage or other item concerns you, use BAG THE BUGS™ and put your worries to rest. Great for items large and small, including pet bedding and toys, baby’s bedding and toys, hairbrushes, clothing, pillows, blankets, camping gear and a whole lot more. Look for our mattress-size bags coming in 2012!
Bugs don’t need much oxygen to live. In a normal bag you would wait months or even years for the bugs to die. Even if you filled the bag with water it would take weeks to kill many species of insects. Wonder why ants don't die in rainstorms? Think about it!
Vacuuming excess air from the bag speeds the extermination process. Once the process is done and the bugs are killed (between 24 and 36 hours in the bag) the bug packs will go back to room temperature. Only at that point will the insects slip into a dormant state and life functions cease. After 36 hours, all bugs are dead and can be vacuumed out of the bag.
Bugs in a warm environment need more air to stay alive, so keep the bag in a warm place during the extermination process. Once the bag is closed the bugs can’t get out. You can safely stow your belongings anywhere as BAG THE BUGS™ does its job. Use caution when opening the bags. You want to make sure to give them time to do their job.
You can keep the bag closed as long as you wish. The minimum time we recommend is 24 hours after the bug packs have processed and are once again at room temperature. Most bugs will die in the first few hours. We recommend keeping your belongings bagged for at least 24 hours to make sure all bugs are killed. Bags are safe to use for long-term storage of camping gear and items you don’t use often, like luggage between trips.
No! Since most molds, mildews, fungi and bacteria depend on oxygen to survive for extended periods of time you can use BAG THE BUGS™ bags to kill these things, too. Given sufficient time in the bag, molds, mildews, fungi and bacteria will die. NOTE: Even plant seeds need oxygen. If they are put in this bag, they will never grow into plants.
Spiders and their eggs are no problem for BAG THE BUGS™! These and all other creepy crawly creatures don’t stand a chance against our 100% natural killing mechanisms.
Everything that crawls into your equipment will be exterminated by the BAG THE BUGS™ process.
It is not recommended by the manufacturer to reuse the bag for repeated exterminations. However, it was designed to work with a full load. If you use a vacuum on it and it is not full, reuse may be possible. After the first extermination is complete and you have emptied the bag, the bug packs will start to warm up again. If so, re-fill the bag immediately. Close and remove air as you did the first time. When the second extermination is complete you can open the bag. If the bug packs get warm again the second extermination was a success!
No. The bag must be closed so it is airtight. Otherwise it will not work properly. Even a pinhole will affect the bag’s performance. Make sure to close your bag up tight so it can do its job.
We strongly recommend closing the bag within 15 to 20 minutes of activation. You should not re-open the bag again until the extermination process is complete.
Make sure the dual lock zipper is fully closed and you didn't rip a hole in the bag. If you find a hole in the bag it must be taped closed so the bag is once again airtight. A large bag with a lot of empty space will take hours to cool down completely. It is best to pack the bags fully before activating.
They will get very warm at first but then cool down gradually. There is no risk of fire whatsoever. The reaction in the bug packs releases heat as it consumes the oxygen in the bag. No other gasses are created or released during the process.
The bag is designed with a special pouch area inside to hold the bug packs. The air in the room will more effectively cool the warm bag packs if they are not smothered on the bottom. Keeping the bug pack in the correct position will always give the best performance possible, although they will still work on the bottom.
BAG THE BUGS™ bags kill insects and other air-dependent organisms by removing more than 99.9% of the oxygen from the bag. You can put anything in this bag, as long as it fits and you can still close the top so the bag is airtight.
Bed bugs do not live or travel in your clothing, they actually live in the seams of the suitcases and travel elsewhere that way.
