Climbup T (Tank) Insect Interceptor Bed Bug Monitor
Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
The ClimbUp T is a much-desired addition to the ClimbUp catalog. It's the largest round trap available; that in itself is very handy for beds or furniture with larger legs. On top of that, the T has a few modifications to it that make it ClimbUp's best design yet.
The grippy black tape on the outer wall is something I wish every bed bug trap had. Black has been known to attract bed bugs more than a lighter color, and the grippy surface makes it easier for bugs to climb up the outer wall.
As with all ClimbUp traps, the inner pitfall is polished to be as slick as possible. This ensures that when bed bugs fall into the pit, they won't be able to climb back out. Bed bugs can't jump or fly, and must crawl up your bed frame to reach you - adding ClimbUps to each leg of the bed, and moving your bed away from the wall and other furniture, will make it nearly impossible for them to bite you at night.
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 can be inspected daily to monitor the population.
Remember that every bug that is intercepted by the climbup interceptor is one less bug that can reproduce or feed on a sleeping person.
How to keep bed bugs out of the bed:
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.
