I read pros and cons and decided not to have my next shot until a bone density was done. After 2 years my bone density showed I had dropped from osteoporosis to mild osteopenia. My doctor double checked the numbers — it was such a delightful surprise. At that point I decided to continue taking the shots and I supplement with Bone Basics daily. I love that I only have to remember every 6 months to get treatment and I have had no side effects that I am aware of. I am blessed and I wish the government in Ontario, Canada would fund this for seniors. With memory decline, it is much easier for a senior to remember to have an injection every 6 months than to take a drug once a week/remember not to eat food for an hour after/ etc. I even went downhill skiing this year without fear!

DO NOT LET ANY DOCTOR TALK YOU INTO A PROLIO SHOT. IT MAKES THE PAIN WORSE. DR. BELLAM TOLD ME IT WAS FOR POST MENAPAUSAL OSTEOARTHRITIS. I HAD A COMPLETE HYSTERECTOMY WHEN I WAS 42. I AM NOW 60. THE OSTEOPOROSIS STARTED AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT. DO NOT COUNT ON HIM TO FOLLOW UP WHEN YOU ARE IN PAIN!

I’ve gotten these injections every 6 months for 3 years with no side effects. My spine was really bad and now I’ve had a good report on my last bone scan.

I received my one and only injection on March 7,2019 and my life has not been the same since. I had a severe allergic reaction which affected my face and ears and neck, it enhanced my asthma to the point of 3 asthmatic reactions which I never had until this injection. I had muscle, joint and back pain to th point that I could barely walk. This is not a hoax and the person in these reviews who said it was should have her sister who is a physician read more than she has. I will say that some people do not have reactions until after multiple injections and then it is awful. I now have cardiovascular event that I never had before. This drug is poison to most post menopausal women especially if they have other health issues. It was originally formulated as a chemo drug for bone cancer, really do you think it will work for average osteoporosis without systemic damage. Think about it. The doctorâ??s have to understand what they are dispensing. I am now almost 10 months post injection and still are experiencing adverse events. The adverse events are all listed on the monogram and my doctor did not inform me of any. I will never trust again.

The doctor stated an aubagio rep has never even been to their office and they were unaware of the protocol. Well, I am stuck with an over 500 dollar lab bill. Aubagio normally pays for this lab, but told me there was nothing they could do since the doctor did not know the protocol. Very poor customer service. I have stopped taking this med and will never take it again.

Regular shedding thereafter. MS Burning Numbing and tingling still happens, but not nearly as frequent. My fatigue is considerably less, thankfully. I’m pleased with AUBAGIO treatments.

FTC Warns: Ineffective Bed Bug Treatments Can Take a Bite Out of Consumers’ Wallets

Share This Page

With the resurgence of bed bugs in the United States, the Federal Trade Commission urges consumers to be cautious when shopping for products that are touted as remedies or ways of preventing bed bug infestations.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that an increasing number of marketers are making unrealistic claims about their abilities to control or eradicate bed bugs.

The FTC, the nation’s consumer protection agency, offers these tips to consumers who think they might have a bed bug problem:

General Information on Bed Bugs

  • Bed bugs can come into homes on or inside luggage, furniture, bedding, or clothing.
  • Inside homes, bed bugs can hide in small cracks and crevices, such as behind a bed headboard, in the seams and tufts of a mattress, inside a box spring, along the cracks of a wall’s baseboard, behind wallpaper, and in clutter.
  • Bed bugs do not transmit diseases.
  • While they typically feed on blood every five to 10 days – leaving red, itchy welts – bed bugs can live for a year or more without eating. They also can survive temperatures ranging from almost freezing to almost 113 degrees F.
  • Bed bugs leave feces about this big • on mattresses, box springs, and other furniture. The feces may bleed on fabric like a felt-tip marker.
  • When bed bugs are crushed, they leave rusty or reddish stains on bed sheets or mattresses.
  • Bed bug eggs and eggshells are tiny (about 1 mm) and white.
  • Live bed bugs have flat bodies, antennae, and small eyes, and are visible to the naked eye. But many other bugs may look like them, so getting an expert’s identification is key.

Treating Bed Bug Infestations

  • Bed bugs can be controlled through a combination of techniques known as integrated pest management, or IPM. An environmentally sensitive approach, IPM includes prevention, monitoring, and limited use of chemical pesticides.
  • Some populations of bed bugs have developed resistance to common pesticides, making some sprays ineffective. Alternative treatments include heat and steam. Bedding, clothing, and electronic items should never be treated with pesticides, but can be treated with heat.
  • Consumers who wish to control bed bugs themselves should consult the EPA for products that meet their needs. Consumers should not attempt to control bed bugs inside their homes with products that are made for outdoor use. They should avoid bombs and foggers, and should not spray pesticides in areas occupied by children or pets, or on top of mattresses, sofas, or other upholstered furniture.

When Hiring a Professional

  • Make sure that bed bugs and not some other pests are present.
  • Hire a company with specific experience in bed bug control.
  • Be wary of exterminators who show up uninvited, offer a free inspection, or exert pressure for authorization to provide immediate and costly treatments.
  • Deal with a qualified and licensed pest-management company. State pest control regulatory agencies have information about the status of pest-management companies. In most states, the regulatory agency is the state department of agriculture. Other resources include state attorneys general, local consumer protection agencies, the Better Business Bureau, and Internet search engines.
  • Ask friends and neighbors for recommendations on pest control companies that treat bed bugs. An online community bulletin board or neighborhood listserve can help.
  • Get bids from several companies. Ask about their training and the approach they take on controlling bed bugs.
  • Be wary of choosing a company based on price alone. Quality control is the most important factor.
  • Before signing a contract, get details on the extent of the infestation, the proposed work plan, and the number of visits required and anticipated to solve the problem. A reputable company will provide an inspection before quoting a price or beginning treatment. The company also should provide a written inspection report, and a plan for preparing for treatment and preventing further infestation.
  • A written “guarantee” should explain what it covers, how long it lasts, what the consumer must do to keep it in force, and what is required for continuing control, prevention, and management.
  • Find out if the pest control company has liability insurance to cover any damage that occurs during treatment.
  • Read the EPA’s Citizen’s Guide to Pest Control and Pesticide Safety, which offers more tips for choosing a pest control company.

Keeping Bed Bugs Out of Your Home

  • Inspect secondhand furniture, beds, and couches for signs of bed bug infestation before bringing them home.
  • Enclose mattresses and box springs in covers labeled “allergen rated,” “for dust mites,” or “for bed bugs.” Periodically check for rips or openings and tape them up.
  • Reduce clutter to minimize hiding places for bed bugs.
  • Repair cracks in plaster, repair or remove any loose wallpaper, and tighten light-switch covers.
  • Apply caulk to seal crevices and joints in baseboards and gaps on shelves or cabinets.

Taking Precautions When Traveling

  • Use luggage racks to hold suitcases, rather than setting luggage on the bed or floor.
  • Check the mattress and headboard before getting into bed.
  • When arriving home, unpack directly into a washing machine. Wash all items showing bed bug stains, and dry on the highest setting for at least 20 minutes. The heat from the dryer kills the bugs.
  • Inspect and then vacuum luggage. Empty the vacuum or seal and dispose of the vacuum bag in an outside trash can after each use.

  • Effective Against Many Pests

Since this insecticide is targeted to insect DNA, it is effective against a wide range of insects that includes crawling insects, beetles, crickets, cockroaches, spiders, and ants.

Harmless to People and Animals

The components used in this spray occur naturally in a wide variety of vegetables, spices, and fruits that we eat. They are perfectly harmless to us.

It’s the core tenet of the company who produces this spray that an insecticide used around the house should be completely safe for people and for pets. This insecticide uses the latest advances in DNA science to create an insecticide that latches onto the differences in physiology between insects and mammals. Components that are harmless to us can be completely lethal to insects. Latching onto these differences allows the manufacturers to create an insecticide that is effective, yet completely harmless to your family or pets.

This insecticide doesn’t contain propane, butane, imiprothrin or pyrethroids.

Use Indoors and Outdoors

Since you can trust the ingredients to not be harmful, it allows you to use it effectively in a wide range of areas, both indoors and outdoors. The precision spray allows you to target an area or even an individual insect with considerable accuracy.

Use it in Problem Places

Most of the ingredients in this spray are familiar things that form a component in our diet and thus are completely harmless to us. This allows you to use this spray in places where you would not be able to use other insecticides. These places include your dining-room, bedroom, living room or family area, your kitchen and bathroom, garages and basements, laundry rooms, hallways, or even your children’s playroom.

Features

Since the components of the spray are not poisonous to humans, you can store this spray anywhere you please around the home. This means that you can have various containers of this spray scattered throughout your house where it’s easily available and ready for use. The cans are also unobtrusive, and at first sight hardly even look like containers of insecticide. This unobtrusiveness and the non poisonous ingredients mean that you can have a can of insecticide handy whenever you have an insect pest.

A Lovely Fragrance

As it is based upon natural substances, the spray has a genuinely nice fragrance, which is the complete antithesis of various insecticides on the market today. Not only does the product smell good, but it is genuinely harmless to the people around you.

No Need for Exterminators

This product negates the need to hire expensive exterminators to rid your house of pests on a professional level. In many ways, this product offers a more permanent alternative to an exterminator. Pests can always re-infest your home after an exterminator has cleaned it out. However, with this spray, you will be able to rid your home of pests permanently.

Warnings

  • Keep Away From the Eyes

If the product gets into your eyes, you will need to rinse the affected eye out for about fifteen minutes or so. Flush the eye with clean water. If you were wearing contact lenses when the product got into your eye, you can remove them after five minutes of washing, before continuing to flush the eye.

Do Not Taste or Swallow

If you happen to accidentally ingest the product, you need to wash the mouth out with water thoroughly. Then get in touch with a health practitioner. It is especially important to contact a doctor if the tissues of your mouth become irritated or inflamed. You should take the container of Zevo spray to show the doctor when you visit him for treatment.

Do Not Put on the Skin

The spray is not intended to be applied on the skin as an insect repellent. It is intended to be placed in different areas or sprayed directly upon a pest or insect. If some of the product falls on you, you should wash your skin thoroughly with soap and water.

Do Not Put on Your Plants

This product is not intended to be used on plants and could damage them. If there are insects on your plants, it is recommended that you shake a plant gently, and use the spray on the insects that fly up from the plant.

Mustn’t be Used on Birds, Fish

This spray is perfectly safe for mammals, however, it is not as safe to use around other classes of pets. It must not be used around a bird or fish, as it could harm such pets. It’s also not safe to use around reptiles. On the other hand, it’s perfectly safe to use near hamsters, cats, dogs, genie-pigs or rabbits.

Negative Points

  • Does Not Ship Everywhere

As of writing this, the company does not ship to Indiana, South Dakota, Virginia, Maryland, Maine and outside the USA. The company also does not ship to post office boxes.

Can’t Get Over the Counter

One possible negative is that you cannot buy this product in a store. If you need to put down a bus invasion quickly, this might be an issue. Nevertheless, the item does tend to ship quite fast, usually arriving within the month.

Save Money

Since you do not need to call in exterminators for a serious pest invasion, this spray can save you a great deal of money. The fact that it is so effective only magnifies this.

Alternatives

Roach Doctor is an insecticide that is especially effective against roaches, and which can save you both money and time. It is an effective alternative to a professional exterminator. With Roach Doctor, you do not need to move out of your house in order to get rid of pests.

Safe N Natural Bug Spray

Safe N Natural Bug Spray is an anti-insect spray that is considered to even be safe for humans to ingest. This does not in any way impede its effectiveness against bugs. This bug spray can also be sued on the skin as an insect repellent. It is a very versatile product, and can be sprayed on furniture and even on the floor.

Wise Advice

Do not buy Zevo online before searching Amazon.
— Alternatives or the same items are always available and sometimes at lower prices.
