Monitoring for bed bugs can be a difficult task especially in rooms that are not occupied. This is due to the fact that bed bugs can remain inactive within unoccupied rooms along cracks and crevices for up to 18 months awaiting their next blood. This is often the case for property managers whose tenants have recently moved out or to monitor in an empty hotel room after a guest makes an initial complaint. Without an active monitor device, itís hard to know for sure if bed bugs are present or if they are finally gone.
Another typical situation is an unoccupied room that is being treated with bed bug powders and sprays. Without an attractant such as the NightWatch to lure the bugs out, there may be no incentive for the hiding bed bugs to become mobile allowing them to make contact with such powders and sprays.
The NightWatch bed bug monitor and trap is currently the most effective active monitor on the market harnessing CO2 and heat to mimic the characteristics of their preferred human host. Once bed bugs reach the NightWatch, they climb up the sides of the unit where they fall into a pitfall. This allows the users to easily inspect and observe the monitor for the existence of bed bugs. The best part about the unit is it can be reused over an over by simply refilling the CO2 bottle (not included) at any paintball store or most sporting goods stores. This makes the NightWatch an economical alternative to other active monitors and the most effective tool to use when monitoring within unoccupied rooms. Although the NightWatch is a monitor and trap, it should be used in conjunction with our Professional 4-Step Protocol and not be relied on as a sole treatment device.
The NightWatch has a digital timer designed to ensure the unit, once setup, will function between 10 pm and 6 am (their most active feeding periods). Setting up the unit is easy and took us just 5 minutes to fully setup. The NightWatch is compatible with most CO2 bottle brands whose valve stem is located flush with top lip of the bottle. If youíre not sure which bottle to buy we do sell Empty Compatible Bottles (we canít ship them full due to federal shipping regulations). Each full CO2 bottle normally lasts between 3-5 days. You can easily tell if the bottle is empty by running the unit while listening for a small hissing sound every 2 seconds, which is the sound of CO2 being released. If you donít hear the hiss itís empty.
The NightWatch is a well-made device that delivers as promised making it an essential tool for just about anyone including pest control professionals along with rental, property and hotel managers.

Bed Bug Supply Team
NightWatch is an innovative new product for pest control operators used to detect bedbug infestations at the earliest stages.
Once eradicated in the United States in the 1950s by the use of DDT, bedbugs are back with a vengeance infesting clean and tidy homes, five-star hotels, college dorms, and living spaces across the country and beyond. Bedbugs have been identified as a rapidly emerging public health pest by the Environmental Protection Agency.
BioSensory developed the NightWatch Bedbug Monitor based on knowledge of a bedbug's physiology and an understanding of how the pest seeks a blood meal. Because bedbugs bite once every 4 to 5 days, a new infestation of just a few bed bugs often goes unnoticed. Bed bugs are often undetectable by the person being bitten and by the most expert professionals in the field. At first, the person thinks the bite is a pimple and then a rash. By the time a skin reaction is recognized as an insect bite, the infestation has grown to hundreds of bedbugs and eggs and is expensive to eliminate.
BioSensory recommends NightWatch Bedbug Monitor as one part of an Integrated Pest Management program (inspection, treatment and monitoring, reinspection).
"We are pleased NightWatch solves two key pieces of the bedbug problem: a monitor that anyone can use, and one that can detect bedbugs the very first time they look for a meal," states Jim Nolen, president of BioSensory, Inc. "NightWatch could become the universal 'smoke detector' that can save millions in cleanup costs and provide peace of mind so people can sleep at night."
Caught A Bunch Of Bed Bugs
Needless to say this product really works. I set it up in about 5 minutes and caught 5 bed bugs the first night! We had a pretty bad infestation and caught 30 more within a week. It's now under control and we moved it to different rooms to monitor and trap more. We own several properties and are happy to have this as part of our bed bug arsenal. The price was also the lowest we found, which was a plus!
