Pests are small, elusive, persistent, and capable of reproducing rapidly. Because of their small size, pests can easily navigate areas of buildings that people can’t physically access.
These pests set their own schedule, and for the most part are savvy enough to avoid being seen. By the time you do notice bedbugs, the infestation is probably at an advanced stage. It is not humanly possible to effectively monitor and detect their activity without some round-the-clock technology. That is why you need Stern’s Real Time Monitoring (RTM).
What is Stern’s RTM?
Stern’s RTM for bedbugs is a comprehensive, multi-pronged method of monitoring for bedbugs in hotels and motels, college dormitories, shelters, nursing homes, and other businesses.
The RTM system uses traps with a heated pest containment drawer, a lure compartment and dispenser, and a LED alert trigger light. It includes thermal and accelerometer sensors that detect heat, vibrations, and sounds from bedbugs.
Stern’s system continuously captures images of the heated containment drawer chambers. The proprietary visualization technology of the RTM recognizes if a pest has entered one of the chambers and captures photos or videos of its activity. When a pest is detected, alert messages are sent by email or text message.
Stern’s RTM for bedbugs provides real-time monitoring and significantly lowers personnel costs by allowing managers to detect infestations in the early and more manageable stages. Contact Stern Environmental today for more information.
