Available for about $19.95, the Bed Bug Alert Passive Bed Bug Monitor provides an easy way to detect bed bug infestations early. Normally, hotels must wait until someone is bitten before bed bugs are detected. With this passive monitor, weekly or even daily observations can be made by the cleaning staff to indicate if bed bugs may be present.
The BB Alert Passive monitor means that it does not actually attract bed bugs, but instead provides an ideal location where they would likely want to hide. As the bed bugs attempt to enter the monitor, they often leave behind fecal matter or blood spots on the perimeter of the monitor. These indicators identify if bed bugs are present.
Another great usage for the Bed Bug Alert Passive Bed Bug Monitor is for individuals who want a tool they use to monitor for possible bed bugs. The monitor has a calendar that can be checked off monthly and is good for for as long as bed bugs are not detected. Once a detection is made, the monitor should be disposed of in a sealed plastic bag as there may be bed bugs inside. We feel that this device may be helpful for just about anyone that is concerned about getting bed bugs and wants to know early (everyone). Although the price is a little high for what the product is made of, peace of mind also has a high value.
The BB Alert Passive Bed Bug Monitor has a sticky backing that allows it to be attached to frames, furniture, walls, baseboards or just about anywhere with a flat surface. The monitor should be setup within 3 feet of the bed in an area where it can be easily monitored. The monitor contains no pesticides or poisons and is safe for people and pets.
