Ozone Machines September 4, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Human Treatment for Collembola! @ 2:27 am

Our ozone machines are supposed to arrive tomorrow and so begins the experimenting.  What I know so far is that we tried a 28,ooo mg/h  ozone machine on my car for an hour and it helped a lot, but didn’t completely get rid of them.  I found a guy using them sucessfully on a blog for collembola at 28,000 mg/h for three hours.  And, the article below used them successfully to get rid of bed bugs.  Basically, what the machine does is turn oxygen (O2) into (O3) suffocating anything biological.  Therefore, it is not safe for humans to be present in an enclosed space with the generator.  The second link is the site to the generators that we bought, along with our exterminator.  I will post more later once we figure out specifics of time, square foot, etc.

    We tried the ozone machines and it was not working, we both got sick from the smell and could not leave on for hours, also our neighbors started complaining to managment. We where told we could return it and if we wanted to try it for a while longer, no worries”we do not want to keep your money, God bless you” all that and when we finally tried to return it we where told the person, Charles who was the owner would never say this and that we passed out return time. Now we are stuck with aBio 3x Blaster that we can not use and out of I think it was $1,400 . Really horrible. Just giving peeps a heads up same company as on this site. If anyone wants to buy ours could sell it for $800, only used 6 times, 5 hours each time.
    Did anyone else get sick from the smell ?

    I bought a very powerful ozone machine, the Bioblaster Pro 50,000 and although it did kill the living collembola, it did nothing for the eggs or larvae.
    I tried different lengths of time, up to 48 hours, and still not luck. It’s great for other insects or mites, but not this arthropod.
    I finally went to scientific researching, where they try to make them live and studied what impacted them and what did not. What I learned was, they simply hold their breathe, incase themselves in wax and feces, and come out when the coast is clear.
    I have to say, it is a wonderful way to control the source of their food; fungi and mold, but only on the surface, and certainly not in soft materials.
    To anyone who is dealing with collembola infestation, don’t invest in these expensive quick fixes. It takes a multitude of things, in the body, on the body and in the environment to get rid of them entirely, and time. We got rid of ours in 7 months and still on the combination of supplements, probably for life.
    Just type in “What kills collembola and their eggs and larvae?” Or, “What is the highest temperature that collembola can withstand?” Ask questions that a scientist would ask and then study the results.
    Right now, at 180 degrees, I am successfully killing all the eggs, larvae and collembola in my oven. Four hours, four times. But, you must be careful and keep a close watch or you will burn something. I preheat the oven for at least an hour, then use foil on the lowest and highest racks to keep any direct contact from the coils. It takes about one hour to make the core temperature 180, so you can’t count those times. Four hours at 180 degrees, through-and-through. I’m speaking of shoes, clothing and belts. Paperwork only needs one baking, turning frequently. Bag them with D.E. and mothballs..the paperwork.
    I’ve also found the perfect essential oil formula combination to kill them, used regularly, that will kill them. Cars and upholstered furniture? Get rid of them until you are all clear, then begin again. Everything else can be saved using the methods I’ve used. I’m worn out and skinny, but I won the war!!!

    • Hi Ann,
      I would be interested in your essential oil combination and the supplements you are taking. We have tried baking clothing before, and it didn’t work. I think killing them varies greatly between different types of collembola. They are very resistant little buggers! We use two high powered ozone machines for five hours on our cars. It keeps them under control, but we do have to repeat every week. I’m so glad you’ve had success!
