How It Works
simulates the conditions that bedbugs consider “perfect harborage”: tight, dark tunneling and rough woodsy material. (Common examples are the small grooves of corrugated boxes, mattress creases and wood furniture.) Through careful research of bedbug biology, CatchMaster
has developed a trap that imitates these patterns. If bedbugs are nearby, they are drawn to the BDS
and trapped in its patented dot-matrix adhesive.
Why Early Detection Is Key
is the first monitor for bedbugs that can be employed on a large scale as part of an IPM/Early Detection/Ongoing Inspection program.
was driven to design this first-of-its kind device by simple economics: the bedbug monitors currently on the market cost as much $600! At these rates, it is difficult to imagine a large-scale program being used in a 250 room hotel, or a 400 unit apartment complex.
Is BDS Foolproof?
A “negative” reading on a BDS
monitor does not necessarily guarantee that there are no bedbugs.
is designed to be ONE PART of your strategy to combat and manage bedbugs in your accounts. It can provide you with valuable information, such as where bedbugs may be harboring, and it can confirm to a customer beyond any doubt that bedbugs are present.
How Is BDS Used?
is designed as a detection device and should be utilized in any place that people congregate:
- Multiple-Unit Dwellings/Apartment Complexes
- Long-term care facilities
- Public transportation
- Summer Camps
