Climbup Interceptors are one of the most important tools you'll need when treating an infestation as they create a barrier trapping bed bugs attempting to enter or exit your bed. Many people dealing with bed bug infestations are unaware that bed bugs are crawling into their mattress to feed from inside walls, furniture, and other locations.
Enabling bed bugs to feed is not only uncomfortable, but also allows bed bugs to develop into an adult bed bug where they can begin to reproduce. A female bed bug must feed at least 5 times before she can begin to reproduce. By using mattress encasements and climbup interceptors, the biting will stop as long as your careful not to bring bed bugs back in on your clothing. We also recommend applying either Bedlam or Steri-Fab to the bed frame and mattress before applying the mattress encasements and Climbup Intereceptors.
Bed Bug Supply Team
CLIMBUP™ insect interceptors are part of our bed bug treatment protocol for use during an infestation. They monitor for bed bugs allowing the user to know not only if they have bed bugs, but also how bad the infestation is and when they are finally gone.
They are designed to intercept bugs leaving the bed or attempting to enter. Climbup Interceptors are easy to apply and should be re-applied with talc powder every few weeks using a small cotton ball. Talc can be purchased for a few dollars at any CVS or Walgreens.
Remember that every bug that is intercepted by the climbup interceptor is one less bug that can reproduce or feed on a sleeping person.
In order for these devices to work to their optimum potential, what must I do?
1. Do not let any items (i.e. comforters, sheets, clothes, etc…) hang off of the bed and touch the floor at any point during the day or night.
2. Do not allow the bed to contact the wall.
3. Check the devices periodically to evaluate if bugs are present or if the devices are compromised (broken, debris in the wells) in any way.
This situation will not allow the CLIMBUP™ to work properly.
This situation will optimize the CLIMBUP™ effectiveness.
Works great, trapped 4 nasty looking bed bugs the first night!

Within hours of having them down we caught a spider ... and they are excellent climbers , so these definitely work . if we do have bed bugs at least the spider will have something to eat ... great product .

Caught 10 The First Night
We weren't sure if we had bed bugs, but boy did we find out in the next morning. We found 10 bed bugs the first night caught inside the trap. The second night we caught 6 more. According to Bed Bug Supply we are not showing bites, but are likely being bitten. This does make sense as there appear to be a lot of bed bugs in our room and they must be feeding on something. We also put the encasements on the mattress and box spring and purchased a bed bug kit. So far so good.

The interceptors are great tool to use when facing a bed bug problem. Once applied we didn't get bitten again. It's vey important to also treat the bed and install encasements as well for this strategy to work. We also steamed the entire room. It's now been a few weeks and we're confident that they are now gone as we haven't caught anything in the interceptors for over a week. We will likely never take the interceptors off just in case we bring another one home.

This was a purchase for all the best in our apartment. It traps bed bugs and keeps them from getting into your bed. We have pets and chose this product because it doesn't use chemicals. You just place them under the legs of the bed. We trapped 15 bed bugs within a few days. After a week of treating we haven't caught any so hopefully they are gone!
