New York City’s reputation as the most bed bugged city in the country has motivated exterminators to get creative. A device called the Fume Cube allows the fumigation of furniture and other bed bug infested belongings on site.
My Fox New York reports that the Cube is installed on the top of apartment buildings crowded with bed bugs. Vikane, a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas kills all of the bugs that enter the Fume Cube.
“When you have thousands of bed bugs in an apartment, this is the way to do it,” said Samuel Soto, of First Rate Solutions. “It’s going to kill every single bed bug and egg that goes into that box.”
The Fume Cube offers convenience and peace of mind to residents who do not want to deal with the hassle of shipping off furniture for fumigation.
