Insects and Other Pests
What Are Mites?
There are over 48,000 species of mites. They can be found in almost every corner of the world, surviving everywhere from tropical environments to arid ecosystems, even indoors alongside humans.
Like ticks, mites are both arthropods and arachnids, but unlike ticks, not all mites are parasites. Some—like house dust mites—are scavengers, feeding off the dead skin and hair of humans. Some mites feed on mold and other plant-life. Some are symbiotic, living on the backs of insects like bees. And, yes, some are parasitic—like bird mites, rat mites and chiggers—which feed on the blood or skin of their hosts.
Do Mites Affect Humans?
You might be surprised to learn that the overwhelming majority of American homes have mites. The good news is that most mites are harmless to humans. However, there are in fact a few species that bite or pose other health risks to people. The extremely irritating skin condition scabies, for instance, is caused by an allergic reaction to the itch mite, which burrows into the skin of mammals to live and lay eggs. Mange is often the result of the same itch mite, along with another species, the Demodex mite (or eyelash mite), which infests the eyelashes of millions of people each year. The Demodex mite has also been linked to rosacea.
The most common biting mites found in the home are rat mites and bird mites. These two parasitic species prey mostly on small animals, but occasionally feed on humans too, causing dermatitis and acute itching. Another common household mite, the dust mite, is not parasitic and therefore does not bite; however, it’s a leading cause of allergies and has been found to cause asthma, too.
Insects and Other Pests
Insects are made up of a high concentration of protein. When Kleen Green is introduced to an insect, the enzymes cause the insect to molt (shed its outer coating) prematurely. These enzymes are accepted in the pest removal industry, because they leave no toxic residues and the effect on the insect exoskeleton is quick and safe. Poison pesticides attack the nervous system of the insect, which is not always effective. University research has noted that some insects have developed a resistance to poison-based products!
What is Kleen Green™?
Kleen Green™ is an enzyme cleaner. It digests grease and other organic matter. Cleans and deodorizes floors, walls, chrome and other surfaces not harmed by water. It can be used with pressurized, mechanical and manual systems or in conjunction with hand sprayers, mops or cloth.
*Water temperatures below 18 C will prolong the time required for optimal cleaning. The ideal temperature for use is 36 C.
A No-Residue Formula
Effective against fungi, mold, mildew and insects
Non-Flammable - contains no combustible materials
Hypoallergenic - contains no known allergen to irritate the skin or respiratory system, will not impair vision or cause rashes
Rinseable - washes off completely in water, does not leave streaks or bead stains. Once rinsed, the product leaves a non-magnetic, non-static finish inhibiting accumulation of dust or grime.
Kleen Green™ is a non-bacterial, extremely concentrated, readily biodegradable product deriving its efficacy through three primary sources:
A readily biodegradable blend of select surfactants chosen for their emulsification attributes and relatively low order of aquatic toxicity.
A concentrated, supplemented, mineral and nutrient-rich extract derived from a carefully controlled fermentation.
The incorporation of a broad-spectrum enzyme package from a proprietary fermentation of innocuous yeast strains.Kleen Green is a non-bacterial, extremely concentrated, readily biodegradable product deriving its efficacy through three primary sources:
Why should you use enzymes instead of chemicals?
Enzymes can be used to replace harsh conditions and harsh chemicals, thus saving energy and preventing pollution. They are also highly specific, which means fewer unwanted side-effects and by-products in the production process. Enzymes themselves are biodegradable, so they are readily absorbed back into nature.
A Multi-purpose Cleaner for removeing mites and grime from around your home and off your body.
This all-organic biodegradable cleaner penetrates and emulsifies all types of organic matter on all surfaces. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to harsh cleaning chemicals and is highly effective for cleaning all surfaces including tile, walls, floors, carpets, rugs and upholstery. This unique and highly effective product is specifically designed to clean and biodegrade organic stains such as blood, vomit, urine, waste, food and other such difficult stains.
Kleen Green™ attacks stains at first application then continues working to safely biodegrade the residual traces of these organic stains. Especially effective on hard-to-clean surfaces such as tile grouting, corners, cracks and crevices where germs colonize, plus carpets and furniture where removal of organic stains is difficult
The unique odour control action includes the absorption of odour molecules on contact, and replacement of offensive odours with a pleasant, refreshing fragrance. Use diluted as a spray air freshener, or cleaning solution. Effective on smoke, cooking, waste and other undesirable odours.
