Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
The new Verifi Bed Bug Monitor and Trap by FMC is one of the most exciting new active bed bug monitors to hit the market recently. Having been studied by several universities and entomologist including Dr. Philip G. Koehler at the University of Florida, the Verifi unit has been proven effective in detecting bed bugs for up to 90 days. The Verifi Bed Bug Detector is easy to use and will be popular for residences, hotels, cruise ships, shelters, hospitals and other areas where early detection is desired.
Unlike other active monitors, the Verifi Bed Bug Monitor uses a combination of 3 different attractants proven to attract all stages of bed bugs. These attractants include a CO2, pheromone and kairomone lure. The CO2 and kairomone lure is used to mimic their ideal blood meal source while the pheromone lure encourages bed bugs to gather and congregate in or behind the unit.
The Verifi bed bug monitor has two areas that may be inspected for the presence of bed hugs. One is the top pitfall of the unit where bedbugs attracted to the device will fall in and not be able to climb out. The other area for inspection is the harborage area on the back of the device, which provides an ideal area for bed bugs to hide. The back harborage area of the unit is not a trap and will only signal there are bed bugs present through fecal matter, eggs or shells bed bugs leave behind.
What we like about the unit is that it's completely reusable as each of the attractants can be replaced quickly and easily. It also has a zip tie to help prevent the unit from being opened or tampered with. We feel the zip tie feature will be popular for hotels, hospitals apartments and cruise ships.
When setting up be sure to follow the instruction or simply watch the video provided on this page. The CO2 booster pack works for a full 24 hours and is used to help quickly detect an infestation. Once the CO2 booster pack completes its 24 hour cycle the remaining kairomone and pheromone lures will continue to attract bed bugs for a full 90 days. We recommend installing the monitor on the wall directly beside the bed or on the headboard. The unit comes with a convenient one time self adhesive allowing you to attach the unit to most flat surfaces.
We highly recommend watching the two videos on this page as they do a great job explaining the product, how to install the device and what to expect. The Verifi Bed Bug Monitor and Trap is not considered a treatment for bed bugs and is used primarily as a detection device. Once bed bugs have been detected our Bed Bug 4-Step Protocol should then be implemented. Early detection is the key to catching an infestation early making the Verifi Bed Bug Detector an essential tool for almost anyone. It's also simple to use as the pheromone and kairomone booster packs only need to be replaced just 4 times a year.
