Bed Bug Control Traps and Monitors
Identifying a pest is a key part of finding the best way to control and eliminate the insect before it can spread through a home or apartment. By using a bed bug trap or monitor, it is possible to find bed bugs before they start to bite and ensure that they are handled in an appropriate manner. They can be used as preventative or diagnostic in the control of bed bugs.
Recognizing Bed Bugs
Putting out a trap for bed bugs can help determine if an insect that has been biting family members is a bed bug or is another insect. Bed bugs are a type of flat insect that crawls and has a brown and red color. They like to stay in close tight areas, so some to the bed bug traps available are glue board types that are very tightly closed, similar to a small book. These traps can be applied to the surfaces of the bed frame or furniture.
Since bed bugs do not have large legs or wings, they will not fly or jump. By placing a trap or a monitor that they crawl through to get to the bed, it is possible to catch the insect and determine that the bites are coming from bed bugs. Bed bug traps are also available that sit under the legs of furniture and the bed, this will capture the bed bugs and prevents them from being able to crawl up to the next blood meal. Great option for anyone who lives in a high area of bed bugs or has treated or replaced the bed and want to make sure the invasion do not occur again.
Killing the Insects With Traps
Bed bug monitors and traps can help eliminate the insects during an early infestation. Generally, it is best to remove any clutter from the infested space before putting out traps so that there are fewer places for the insect to use as a place to hide. Some traps and monitoring lure will have a CO2 attractant to trick the bed bug into thinking it is a warm blooded animals in the trap. The Verifi is a great product and works, well for hotels and other public spaces where a treatment has occurred and someone needs to check very quickly that no new bed bugs are in the area.
Place the traps in locations that are near the bed or infested furniture. Depending on the location of the infestation, the best placement for the traps will vary. For example, it can be placed on the floor under a couch if the insects are biting when individuals sit on the couch. Otherwise, it can be placed on a box spring or bed frame. Always follow the directions provided by the manufacturer.
Since the insects will usually come out at night, it may not be possible to see them crawl into the traps. Remove the traps in the morning to evaluate if the pests have been trapped or if it is necessary to move the trap for the next night.
Even though traps and monitors can help, it is also important to evaluate the severity of the infestation. Traps and monitors are most appropriate when the infestation is limited to a single room and has not yet grown out of control. They are also low cost investment to add on to your bed bug kit, so that you can monitor for any new infestations.
By using a combination of strategies, it is possible to control bed bugs and eliminate an infestation before it can move throughout the house. The key is identifying the pest and then using appropriate options based on the current situation. Bed bug control traps and monitors can be a very effective added tool in your arsenal in the fight against bed bugs.
What excellent service - if you have genuinely already despatched the item, thank you very much! Nice to know we won't have to share a flat with these mice much longer ;) Great service. - chrisbirkett
I ordered Gentrol IGR from EPestSolutions and am pleased to say my order was received earlier than expected. There were no problems with my order and I found the employees to be knowledgeable and very friendly. As far as Gentrol IGR, it is awesome. While the rest of the neighbors are battling roaches with those department store baits, my house "seems" to be completely cockroach free. They converged on the neighborhood during a drought, and suddenly everyone had them. Since the biggest problem with cockroaches is their ability to exponentially breed, what better way to win the battle than insect birth control! I give EPestSolutions and Gentrol ***** Stars for great service and a fantastic product. The next time I see a cockroach, I hope it's in a museum under glass with the rest of the extinct species. As a bonus, I have seen a significant reduction in other insects as well. Thanks EPestSolutions and Gentrol for giving me back my house. Just a note, Gentrol is for indoor use only, and I limited mine to the areas around the bathroom, kitchen baseboards, behind cabinets, under sink, refrigerator, stove, inside doorways, edges of windows on the inside, and on the insulation and plumbing under the sub floor in the sealed crawlspace below the kitchen and bathroom. A good pest control program should be used in conjunction with other products, i.e., pump sprays, baits, and especially helpful are products with a stick attachment to reach wall voids and the smallest cracks. Ask EPestSolutions, and they will tell you exactly what you need at a fraction of the cost of an exterminator. Thanks Again, - L. Walker
InVict Gold is the best ever!, 11.7.2010 This stuff is amazing. We had a real bad problem. After putting it out a week ago, at first every few hours we had to sweep up piles of dead roaches. A week later, sweep at night, then go to bed and get up and have to sweep again...which is great thing! Everytime word gets out about this discovery, they ask me where I got it. I can't keep the little magnet that came with each order. Everyone keeps taking it to give to someone else like a business card. -Joseph
I was very satisfied with the Catch All mouse trap and was very impressed by the fast delivery. -Ann

After informing epestsolution of a problem I had with the spray can delivery system you immediately sent a replacement w/o any questions. Thank you, -pleased customer
However, we ordered Snap-E-Mousetraps because we had purchased some several years ago but have never been able to find them since (in stores) so we were so very happy to find them on-line with your company. They are already catching mice in our 100 year old farm house and working very well. They are easy to set and easy to unload (dead mice). Your prompt shipping was very nice, too. -Margaret
Not to take up too much time, I ordered those snap mouse traps. They work!!! Mostly, I appreciate the quick response. When I need anything else in this area, I will remember you guys. -Olivia
I received my order awhile back and wondered where I can leave you positive feedback? The order was just as I hoped, Shipping was very fast, and Cindy was Very helpful.
OK you are now my mew BFF!! Thanks so very much for your help with this. I really really appreciate it. Death to ANTS! :) -Heather
Comments: I understand that employees are the backbone of every successful company. But,sometimes their true value is lost in the everyday routine work they perform. Your company has a very valuable asset in Cindy (sales). What ever her current rate of pay, it is not enough. She made ordering from ePet very easy and enjoyable. She spoke perfect english, was knowledgeable about product and was friendly. She makes you money! Pay her MORE boys !!! -Praising Cindy
The rat traps work great we caught 18 mice so Thanks -Terry

I can truly say that your service was excellent and I have since recommended you to co-workers and friends. Let me know how I should proceed from here to provide feedback. Thanks again, -Mack
Thank you very much for taking the time to find this installation video for me. I truly appreciate it. I will try to install them this weekend. Thank you.
Love the custom sprayer. Thanks again for your help! -J
Wow! I cannot believe how quickly I received my product . I have always been reluctant to order products online, but your price for the Tempo SC Ultra product was so much better than the price of local businesses that it was worth taking the risk.
I checked out your business along with others via the BBB before placing my order. Your "A" rating helped ease my reluctancy as other online businesses did not rate as well and of course, they were not in Texas.
I am so impressed with your organization, I will not only order from you again, but will refer your organization to everyone I know. I absolutely love the Tempo product for all my pest control needs both in and out side of my home. I will never purchase this from anyone else.
Thank you so much for your professionalism and honesty as an online business. You help set the standards of how these businesses should operate. -Donna
