The product is now registered for use throughout the United States..
“We are thrilled to be able to offer CIRKIL® products in New York State,” said Dave Buzzelli, VP of Sales for Terramera. “With registration in New York, CIRKIL® products are now registered in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. As bed bugs continue to increase their presence across the United States, Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) need effective products to combat these difficult pests. CIRKIL® products create significant opportunities for the industry.”
CIRKIL® products are the only EPA-registered pesticide on the market that not only kill bed bugs but also kill eggs and prevent egg hatch as a residual.

CIRKIL® products have been used by PMPs in the US for nearly a year, starting in California in 2012.
“CIRKIL® provides a solution to the bed bug problem that has stumped PMPs,” said Tim Guererro, General Manager at Pro Pacific Pest Control in San Diego, CA. “We are now able to treat bed bug infestations with confidence. CIRKIL® has proven over and over again that it will eliminate 100% of the bed bug population in a home quickly. Our customers are glad to hear it’s a botanical insecticide and we are glad that we won’t need to make numerous retreats. The lasting residual effect is like nothing we’ve used before.”
