Living with a bed bug infestation is terrifying. It can leave you sleep deprived and psychologically scared for the rest of your life. Just the thought of these miniature blood-sucking vampires feeding on you as you sleep can make your skin crawl.

But guess what? There is an easy and simple solution that can help you to get your life back.

I am going to share with you my own personal story on just how I beat bed bugs using this amazing product.

But first,

What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are flat oval insects that are the size of an apple seed. They usually come out at night and feed on their victim as they sleep. However, they can live and breed in just about anything, including couches, electronics, light fixtures, and toys. They multiply quickly and can hitch a ride into your home by hiding in your luggage, clothes, brief case, and books.

I lived with a bed bug infestation for six months after unknowingly moving into an infested building. It cost us thousands of dollars, my brand new furniture, and most importantly my sanity. I eventually had to throw in the towel, abandon my apartment, and start completely over. When it was all said and done: I owned one pair of flip flops in the middle of October. I was able to save my important documents and a few clothes, however, as I prepared to move into my new home, I became worried that I would unknowingly take these annoying pests with me.

And that's exactly what happened.

Unwelcome Guest

After my move, things were really starting to look up. My partner purchased me brand new furniture, bought me new clothes, and I was looking forward to a fresh new start. But my happiness was short lived.

One morning after doing laundry, I found a small bed bug on the top of my washing machine hiding under the laundry basket. My heart sank.

I quickly found a rag and smashed it. But the sad realization hit me that with all my efforts, I did not escape the bed bugs. I had brought them with me.

Despair overcame me and I started to decline into a state of depression knowing that my unwelcomed guests would most likely start feasting on me once again.

I didn't know what to do

I took to the internet and did a Google search on bed bug success stories. That's when I came across an amazing product that gave some very promising results.

It’s called CIMEXA.

Here is How it Works

CimeXa is a fine insecticide dust composed of 100% Amorphous Silica Gel. It kills adult bed bugs, nymphs, and hatchlings, including pyrethroid resistant bed bugs. Once bugs come in contact with it, their exoskeleton is destroyed by the depletion of moisture and oils. The insect will quickly dehydrate and die, usually within the first 24 hours.

It also kills ticks, lice, roaches, flies, silverfish, termites, spiders and just about anything that will crawl through it.

CimeXa is similar to diatomaceous earth, but much more effective. If you are familiar with DE, you know that it is crushed fossilized diatoms (silica based single-cell algae) that kills by cutting through the waxy cuticle of an insect. However, a scientific study done with the NIH National Library of Medicine showed a 100% mortality rate in 2 to 4 days with CimeXa vs a 14-day mortality with diatomaceous earth. CimeXa has been engineered to give maximum results by providing a "static cling" effect and was proven to work against both the common bed bug, C lectularius, and the tropical bed bug, C Hemipterus.

Bed bugs do not have to eat CimeXa in order for it to work and it is not a repellent, meaning that they will walk through it when applied correctly. It has low toxicity and is odorless. You also don't have to worry about it getting wet, in fact, some users mix it with water and spray it as an application. One 4-oz bottle retails for about $14.50 or less. That’s a fraction of the cost for one treatment with a professional exterminator. And remember, this is a residual insecticide dust; it continues to kill bugs up to ten years when left undisturbed.

CimeXa can be extremely drying and irritating if you get in on your skin. A simple solution is to wear gloves when applying or wash your hands with soap and water once finished. You should also wear a mask when applying this product as it is a very fine dust that can get into your lungs if inhaled.

Okay, back to my story:

How I Used Cimexa to Prevent Another Infestation

After reading the positive reviews on CimeXa, I decided to order me two bottles. Once they arrived, I went to work applying it along the entire perimeter of my apartment. I treated my bed frame, living room furniture, dressers, kitchen drawers, light fixtures, and electrical outlets. I also put certified bed bug encasements on my mattress, box spring, and pillows AND placed bed bug inceptors on all the legs of my furniture. This prevented any new bed bugs from getting to me as I slept. As an extra precaution, I lightly dusted the canals of the inceptors with CimeXa.

On the second day of treatment, I found what looked like a bread crumb on the back of my kitchen sink. Only it wasn't a bread crumb. It was another bed bug.

However, at closer inspection, this bed bug was DEAD. (Me laughing in my sinister voice.)

It looked like the CimeXa had worked! This nymph looked as if it had desperately struggled to get away from the treated cracks on the floor by crawling up to the sink in hopes of avoiding dehydration and death.

It failed miserably and now lay dead on my countertop.

I couldn't have been happier!

The Next Couple of Weeks

Over the next couple of weeks, I went to bed each night fearful that I would awake the next morning covered in bites.

But that never happened.

In fact, It has been two years now, and I am still bed bug free!

This one powder, CimeXa, changed my life for the better. It's the number one weapon in my bed bug arsenal, in fact, it's the only weapon that I need.

You too Can Be Bed Bug Free!

Just imagine going to bed every night and no longer worrying about waking up with red and itchy bumps. Picture having family and friends over again without the embarrassment of having to first explain that you have a bed bug infestation.

No more harmful chemicals. No more wasted money on exterminators that offer you nothing more than empty promises.
