Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
The Bed Bug Alert monitor and trap is an effective tool that can be used to monitor for potential bed bug infestations. Using a pheromone lure attractant, bed bugs enter the monitor and then get stuck in a sticky glue. We really like the clear outer casing allowing you to easily inspect the monitors interior for bed bugs without having to remove anything. The glue is also on the inside of the monitor so its completely mess free and child safe.
We recommend using the Bed Bug Alert monitor and trap on the four corners of the bed or sofa to see if bed bugs are present. Periodically inspect monitor visually for any signs of bed bugs including blood spotting or actual bed bugs. The Bed Bug Alert works for 6 months and can be checked daily if needed for the presence of bed bugs. Once bed bugs are identified using the Bed Bug Alert, our 4-Step Solution should then be implemented.
The Bed Bug Alert is also a great product to bring with you while on vacation. Simply install them on the edge of the 4 corners of your hotel or cruise ship bed (between the mattress and the box spring) and you'll be able to monitor to see if bed bugs are present in the bed. If you trap a bed bug, you'll have something tangible to show management.
For best results we recommend using the Bed Bug Alert in conjunction with mattress encasements and Climbup Insect Interceptors. This offers the best prevention tool available for home use.
Bed Bug Prevention Strategy (can help stop a potential infestation):
Apply Climbup Insect Interceptors - Prevents entry into the bed by eliminating entry points on the bed (applied to each leg of the bed, chairs or sofa). Bed bugs want to feed and will be collected inside the interceptors as they attempt to climb into the bed.
Apply Certified Bed Bug Proof Mattress Encasements- Prevent bed bugs from hiding along the seams of the mattress or inside the mattress, box spring and corner guards. Bed bugs can quickly ruin a mattress if not encased and protected.
Apply Bed Bug Alert Monitor and Trap- Attracts and catches bed bugs that were likely carried into the bed on the sleepers clothing.
The Bed Bug Alert is a high quality bed bug monitor offering early detection and peace of mind for those wishing to know if they have or do not have bed bugs. With new cases of bed bugs being reported in record numbers, prevention may be one of the defenses.
