About Nattaro Labs
Nattaro Labs is a Swedish company that carries out world-class research to develop innovative products and sustainable solutions to combat the growing global problem of bed bugs. Through a combination of evidence-based research, innovative product development and close partnerships with pest control companies, Nattaro Labs currently has a unique position as a product developing, bed bug specialist on the international market. Nattaro Safe™ is supplied on a roll of tape and consists of a folded paper construction with a self-adhesive back and an inside covered with a thin layer of diatomaceous earth. Diatomaceous earth is a natural agent that absorbs the bed bug’s protective wax layer, which results in the pest drying out and dying. It is a natural product made from fossilized silica algae safe for people and pets. Through its design, Nattaro Safe™ creates an environment that is attractive to bed bugs, a dark and confined paper tunnel with inviting crevices. The inside contains a thin layer of diatomaceous earth. The product is easy to apply, and most importantly, bed bugs cannot develop a resistance to the active substance. This Swedish invention, Nattaro Safe™, is a patented product that is designed and made in Sweden.
