Cryonite - "Just Freeze" Non-Toxic Pest Control
“CRY” = "JUST FREEZE" CRYONITE TREATMENT
WHY AND WHEN WE RECOMMEND TREATING WITH CRYONITE
This extremely effective non-toxic treatment is part of a selection of proven methods and solutions. Cryonite eliminates crawling insects at all life stages and in areas where other methods cannot be used. A major advantage of Cryonite is that it is completely harmless to humans and leaves no residues.
The method is to freeze the infestation. It can be used on any material, surface or equipment, including electric devices. It is even possible to treat power points and computers with Cryonite.
The use of recycled CO2 means that this is an ecological and healthy way of achieving a non-chemical treatment. Insects, and especially bed bugs, are becoming increasingly resistant to chemical treatments - a problem that will only escalate in years to come. Cryonite is the perfect solution. This process is one of the easiest and fastest and works in combination with all other treatments solutions. Our technicians are highly trained and will make sure that the treatment is successful.
- All Cryonite treatments include a full prevention treatment as stated above and one "Bug Lock" box spring encasement per room if required.
- Every "Just Freeze" Cryonite treatment includes educational material for the tenant and support via our hotline.
Time: Approx. 1 - 2 hours per room
Process and Method
The Cryonite System uses very low temperatures to kill insects. Insects are frozen using carbon dioxide “snow”. There are no insecticides and there is no residue build-up, so no risk of toxic or allergic reactions.
The carbon dioxide used is a by-product of an industrial process, so using it adds no extra carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.
Dry ice (-78°C) is discharged by a patented nozzle at optimal particle size and stream velocity.
This technology is internationally proven and thoroughly tested.

Entomologist Jody Gangloff-Kaufmann of Cornell University notes:
“The only drawback with flash freezing is that it is harder to use than other approaches. The problem with it is not so much the technology as the technician.
- They have to be highly trained.”
- That is where ALPECO comes in!
