Watch out bed bugs, NightWatch is coming for you! NightWatch is a new product, developed by Bio Sensory, Inc. This new bed bug monitoring device promises to monitor and trap those dreaded bed bugs. It is expected to be out on the market in September 2008. This is the first bed bug monitor of its kind to ever be developed. Consumers are sure to welcome this addition in their fight to detect and rid their life of bed bugs once and for all.
Bed bugs are attracted to the heat of the blood in human bodies. They are also attracted to the CO2, that a human exhales, as well as well other chemicals emitted through the skin and respiration.
According to Bio Sensory’s website, “NightWatch™ was scientifically designed to trap bed bugs with a proprietary, 7-part kairomone lure which uses the pests’ own natural, biological attractants and feeding instincts against them. By mimicking the CO2 and heat of a human body, NightWatch combines with this powerful yet safe lure to make the trap highly effective at detecting and catching these biting pests – before they can reach humans or even domestic animals.“
This product is ideal for use in homes, apartments and hotels. Each unit covers a 16’ x 16’ room span. Bed bugs are attracted to the unit overnight and trapped in a contained pit that will need to be emptied each morning. Being that this product is a “detection and monitoring system”; consumers will still need to use this system with an Integrated Pest Management program to receive the best results.
Without a doubt, this new technology will aid homeowners and businesses in their quest for complete removal of bed bugs.
