This new innovative product was introduced at the Bed Bug Summit for Pest Management Professionals in Chicago in October 2011. We will most likely be carrying this item in our store when it is released for sale in the near future. The Bed Bug Plug is an innovative heat and moisture baited bed bug monitor that masquerades as an electrical outlet. The low level heat and moisture combined with an innovative spin on glue traps makes this low cost bed bug monitor appear to be a very effective option for widespread use.
With the appearance of a regular wall outlet, hotels, dormitories, and apartments can now cost effectively, and without drawing attention, test areas for bed bugs. The monitor lasts for three months and then the interior glue trap and moisture bait should be replaced. One unit is even available with an operational electrical outlet so not only will it look like a typical electrical outlet but will operate as one. Included with the unit is a long cord so you can put the Bed Bug Plug on a bed, or in a drawer for additional testing.
With the ability to transport this innocuous looking bed bug monitor it may well become the monitor of choice for travelers and a regular fixture in guest rooms in residential homes. We are excited about the potential uses of this low priced, seemingly effective, and cleverly disguised bed bug monitor.
|The Sleep-Safe Pack|
Bed Bug Slasher has released two new products the Sleep-Safe Pack and the Guard-Post Unit. The Sleep-Safe Pack consists of four traps that you put under furniture legs or under bed posts and the Guard Post Unit is a larger monitor and trap.
Both products use the same technology to mimic the CO2 signature of a sleeping person to attract bed bugs and both contain pit traps to trap and kill the attracted bed bugs. The unique difference to this monitor/trap from other similar offerings is that the pit trap contains diatomaceous earth which scratches the bed bug's exoskeleton which then leads to death by desiccation.
|The Guard Unit|
The Sleep-Safe Pack consists of four smaller units with a CO2 creating solution that continuously releases very low levels of CO2 that mimic the breathe of a sleeping person. Bed bugs are attracted to the gas and fall into the diatomaceous earth loaded pit traps and die. The kit contains seven days of bait ingredients.
The Guard-Post Unit is a larger version of the Sleep-Safe trap and is placed in room corners, by walls, near the front door; anywhere you want to monitor for bed bug activity.
Not only does the Guard-Post unit trap and kill bed bugs, but is a frontline detector.The unit comes with a seven day supply of bait ingredients and diatomaceous earth for the trap. The trap is relatively unobtrusive and easily hidden under beds, in a room corner or in a closet.
Both offer a way to attract bed bugs in your environment, monitor for activity, trap, as well as kill bed bugs that may be present.
This brand new clear, rigid, plastic bed bug monitoring device entices bed bugs in with a tasty blood meal-like lure. The clear view allows for simple detection of even one bed bug by exterminators, home owners, or housekeeping staff. The device is sturdy and so reusable until a bed bug presence is detected. By being clear, the device is easily and quickly monitored. No more pulling apart sticky glue strips, to inspect for bed bugs or checking monitors for fecal marks. See inside the monitor for the presence of bed bugs chowing down on the lure.
The gel-based lure consists of a proprietary combination of human pheromones that attract bed bugs to the monitor but are safe to use in all environments for bed bug detection The device is small in profile and affordably priced. The manufacturer recommends that users simply install between the mattress and box spring and review twice daily. The presence of even just one bed bug should result in a call to a bed bug extermination professional.
The monitors are small enough to be unobtrusive, but have been proven to attract adult bed bugs and nymphs. Once inside, the bed bugs are trapped when they feel on the lure. This is the perfect device for pest professionals, home owners, apartment dwellers, hospital and nursing homes, and even travelers. Small, portable, affordable, and easy to check make this monitor an exciting new product that we are considering adding to our store.
Now you can be sure that you have bed bugs definitively. Cheaper than bed bug dogs, you swab your environment, then send the swabs to the laboratory for testing. If bed bugs are present they have left microscopic evidence of their presence in the form of DNA which can be detected in the laboratory. Don't guess if you have bed bugs, know for sure the scientific.
It is easy to swab your environment and nearly a whole room can be swabbed with one special swab. Just make sure that your bed and headboard area are the last places you firmly rub your DNA collection swab. If you find insect debris like legs or exoskeletons, include them in the bag you send to the lab with your swab. The lab tests your samples and let's you know in about 24 hours after the review. With DNA evidence you'll have a 99.99% surety rate that you do have a presence of bed bugs.
All bed bug DNA testing is done by a top research laboratory. They are one of the nation's oldest and most experienced veterinary molecular diagnostic laboratory. They have been performing molecular testing since 1992.
Hospitals and nursing homes can even test to see if the bed bugs they may have are carriers for MRSA staph germs. For this type of testing you will need to include a live or dead bed bug from your environment or even pieces of a bed bug.
DNA testing can even determine if a tick is a carrier of Lyme disease. Just send the live or dead tick in the sealed bag to the lab and its DNA will be tested to see if it is a carrier requiring you to have prompt medical attention.
High tech DNA testing for bed bugs and other situations is easy to do and incredibly accurate. With each test running about $60, you'll save money by knowing if you have a problem for sure before you call in a bed bug dog or exterminator.
We don't have a lot of details about this new product yet, but it is a portable heating unit for bed bug killing and prevention. This product called the Bed Bug Baker.

This two sided sticky trap tape made by AgriSense can be used by hotels and colleges for passive bed bug detection. The tape can be discreetly placed under beds and furniture, behind headboards, and other areas to monitor for bed bugs particularly after treatment. The box comes with 5 - 20 inch long by 2 3/8 inch wide tape strips.
The manufacturer states that "ideally it should be placed under beds, on furniture etc, in an inconspicuous place. Traps should be located on the hard surface such as wood or plastic as the tape will not stick well to fabric. Traps should be replaced every two weeks or when the sticky surface becomes saturated with dead insects or dust. Once this happens peel off, fold shut and dispose of traps via standard waste disposal means. As the trap is composed of harmless materials, no special precautions are necessary for use.This product is also available in bulk roll quantities.
The Bed Bug Night Stick is a easy to use active bed bug detector that you tuck inside your bed rail or bed frame. Tuck in corner traps at all corners of your box spring for greater protection. Bed bugs get stuck in the sticky indentations of the Night Stick which has active baits that simulate human presence with the small red dots embedded in the trap that you soak with a glycerin attractant.
This new bed bug detector is the perfect cost effective low profile bed bug detection device for hotels and motels. It acts to attract bed bugs (with the small baited dots), creates a safe harborage place for bed bugs (with indentations), with fecal detection (white plastic for easy observation of fecal stains) and glue board monitoring (traps bed bugs for visual inspection and confirmation).

This new product is installed under bed posts and creates a barrier between the floor and the bed. Bed bugs approaching a bed from the floor of the room will climb up the exterior surface of the Climbup Interceptor from Susan McKnight Inc. and fall and be trapped in the outer pitfall ring. Bed bugs climbing down from the bed will be found trapped in center well.
The rings are treated with a fine layer of talc preventing the escape of any captured bed bugs.

These New Products Are Now Available in Our Store for Purchase
We've just picked up a brand new product called the Bedbug Beacon which is being sold by the same people who have brought us PackTite, the portable bed bug oven. We've watched a video of the trials and the product seems extremely promising in regards to capturing bed bugs when a visual inspection has shown no presence.
The product is a small simple pit trap covered with a dome, a tube extends from the dome. With water and three packets of chemicals, you make a liquid that slowly releases small amounts of CO2 gas into the trap; attracting bed bugs. The chemical solution continues to create small levels of CO2 for up to 11 days.
The results appear to be excellent with even these small amounts of CO2 in attracting bed bugs. The product is relatively inexpensive and is patent pending. With the difficulties some people have of finding CO2 canisters to power many of the more expensive or professional bed bug monitoring tools, this ready-mix make your own CO2 solution may be the perfect combination for wide spread and also more economical use.
