    Has anyone used this type of technology before?...I have the one pictured below, I bought it over 8 years ago and still use it, mainly when I change bed linen and when cleaning my computer keyboards, mice, and tablet...I clean these things with an alcohol wipe then UV light...This UV light I have gives off some ozone, but not enough to be concerned, I do not use this technology every day...

    I prefer my handheld anti-neutron irradiator unit myself.
    But that unit would be cool too.

    I don't think you should disinfect your own computer equipment in your own home. It might be a good idea if you are going to use equipment provided in a public place. You need exposure to environmental bacteria to remain healthy.

    Computer keyboards would not have been a source of environmental bacteria for the pilgrims.

    The main reason I use it on my keyboards is because I handle my dog so much and he is out in meadows and the forest daily, same reason I use it on my pillows and mattress when I change linen, because my dog sleeps in my bed often...That being said its about a once a week thing...

    I have versions that work on surfaces and versions that work to clean up water.
    I don't have an easy way to test the one that works on surfaces, but the ones that work on the water are effective.
    got infections from the water, changed to cleaning it all with the UV thing and no more infections.
    have personally tested on viruses and bacteria (2 locations) and it works well.
    not sure the type of device is that critical as I have several kinds and they all work just fine.

    they are great for things you just can't wash (like keyboards and paper), potentially a bit to slow for cleaning an ATM before use, but now they have fancy gloves that work with touch screens.

    everything I have seen on them is that they work quite well.
    the only reason they were not used before and are likely not used to much now is that the DNA is intact enough to be read.
    so, if you do a DNA test for pathogens, you still get a positive even though it is still all dead. people don't seem to deal with that uncertainty well.

    What type of set up do you have for cleaning water?...I have thought about doing this but have not researched it yet, this is rekindling my desire to get this set up for my water too...

    I've seen similar in shops that provide safety equipment to protect the eyes/face to prevent the spread of pinkeye.

    At my former job they used a type of water ionizer on water that was to touch the food.

    One of the keys things mentioned and I took notice of for the device I have is this:

    “Kills dust mites, lice & flea and bed bug eggs in pillows, bedding and carpet.”

    I use it mainly on his bedding and mine cause he sleeps in my bed often too, change the sheets and pillow cases and that UV device comes out, steady coverage of the pillows and mattress, then fresh linen goes back on...I'm out in the country though and lots of forests around me, no telling what may piggy back a ride in his long hair and come into the house...Hardwood floors help keep the bugs down too...

    Whilst on the subject of dog related bugs, there is also those once a month 'all in one pill' for canines, supposed or claimed to kill fleas, mites, lice, and all sorts of worms along with heart worms...The damned pill is as big diameter as a Susan B. Anthony dollar coin and as thick as two dollars in quarters, how is a dog or any animal smaller than a jackass supposed to swallow it?...The pill is called Trifexis, I don't like medicating people or animals unnecessarily and I'm not convinced it is a necessary thing and how harmful it may be to him taking it for life...I don't know if I'm helping or harming when I skip a few months during the winter not giving the pill to him, which btw I found the ONLY way to give him this huge flying saucer of a pill is to crush it up in canned dog food, his favourite actually, a barbecue canine recipe...Any other way I try and he figures it out and thinks I'm slipping him a Micky...lol

    maybe it is just me,
    so, likely it is just me...
    but when you have animals that share your living areas, there are side effects.
    example:
    dog parks spread some contact cancer...

    anything you can wash and clean and sterilize, you should
    UV light is for things that don't wash well

    We use a chewable treat for flea & tick control and just toss it in her kibble once a month. Brand name is NexGard and the packaging says it's 68mg afoxolaner, whatever that is. They're soft, not too big and effective. You can discontinue over the winter months but generally we don't. I think we are looking at this slightly differently though.

    Lyme disease in this area is extremely bad - one of the worst areas in the country for whatever reason. About ten years ago the only product I could find was that oily crap you're supposed to dose on the neck and rump with and I think it's only effective if a tick slips off because of it. Oh, and as a further product feature the oil it was toxic for cats, which we always have. Both my old boy Max and I got Lyme and it hits like a dump truck full of bricks. Bad news.

    We're out in the woods and in tall grass with girldog these days and although we will still occasionally pull a live tick off of her that's just taking a free ride it's rarely lodged and if it does they are dead - never once pulled an engorged one off and never any other kind of bug, period.

    For heartworm we give her a similar monthly chewie called Interceptor Plus which is 11.5mg milbemycin/114 mg praziquantel. Sounds tasty. Lack of heartworm is the only test of effectiveness but this product came well recommended from vets we have known for years and trust. None of this stuff is cheap and if you have to give your dog medications at least they seem to work and haven't caused any side effects. Once a month I just toss one in her breakfast and one in her dinner to stagger the a bit.

    So we do let her sit on the couch with us but she but because we are cruel, cruel people she has her own fluffy bed next to ours and it gets the standard dogmung but we never find any critters. The cats are naturally disgusted by all this.

    Wish I could do that, mine knows its a pill and don't want it in any way, he knows its in the cheese ball I give him but he can't resist cheese so I found that's the only way I can give him and pill and ensure he swallows it...

    Had some vanilla pudding earlier this afternoon in one of those prepacked cups, with a bit of pudding still in it, I left the cup on the coffee table, a few minutes later while I was in the back room he comes walking in...So I tell him he forgot to get the pudding cup, he turned right around and went into the living room and brought it back where I was and finished it off lol...A funny had to be there moment...

    Yes, I've got one of those, I even have used it on cuts and scrapes to test how well it works,

    But mine doesn't look like that, Mine is a weird one that just screws into a normal lamp, Because see, I'm prone to skin infections, I get them so easily. I can confirm, To some extent ultraviolet light does indeed do the trick.

    I used to have a dog that I swear could sort marbles by color in his mouth. This one is the Black Hole of treats, even the chewie medicine squares :) Fortunately she limits this to actually edible things, not remote controls, shoes, etc

    The sun is a natural disinfectant and it's a good idea to hang clothes on a line to dry.

    I knew I mentioned this technology here on the forum some time ago, almost two years ago and now again recently because of the coronavirus...

    I have a few of these UV devices,
    guess it is time to get them out and start using them.
