Testing and Certification

At Citrox Protect, our commitment to thorough testing ensures that our solutions provide reliable protection. Explore the table below to see the impressive scope of our product efficacy.

  • Main objective

    Evaluate the insecticidal effectiveness of Citrox bioflavonoid complex against Cimex Lectularius bed bugs in real-world scenarios.

  • Methodology

    Bed bugs, housed in plastic containers, were subjected to treatment from a 30 cm distance, with tap water as a control. This process was replicated 10 times, comprising 5 treatment and 5 control sets, recording immediate knock-down rates post-application and mortality rates after 24 and 96 hours.
