Everyone has seen a hitchhiker or two on the highway looking for a ride but have you ever thought about hitchhikers on a plane? Not the human kind but the bloodsucking kind known as bed bugs.

About Bed Bugs

These pests are creative and persistent in finding ways to hitch a ride. It doesn’t matter where you may be going, they plan to travel in style in your luggage, totes, computer cases, or even in the creases of your clothes.

While bed bugs don’t carry or transmit disease, their bites turn into red itchy welts that can show up on any part of your body. The bites can be problematic for anyone who suffers from allergic reactions.

Passive Bed Bug Monitors are Vital for Bed Bug Detection Programs

Bed bugs have become a major problem all over the United States. Early detection of an infestation makes it much easier for pest control professionals to eliminate the infestation. Professional bed bug extermination treatments are typically less expensive when performed before the infestation becomes huge and spread all over the house.

BB Alert Passive is a  passive bed bug monitor that will be a valuable asset in a bed bug prevention plan. People living in New Jersey and New York City and other bed bug locations need to have a comprehensive bed bug prevention plan.

The passive bed bug monitor works by providing a narrow space which bed bugs enjoy using for their home. The monitor should be placed near the headboard between the mattress and the box spring. The device’s white skirt will show the fecal matter of bed bugs living in the device. A bed bug pest control professional will be able to tell if the droppings are produced by bed bugs.

The BB Alert Passive allows people to get pest control treatments before the bed bug population becomes huge.
