Trappit Bedbug Detector Plus is a great weapon for detecting the presence of Bedbugs, supplied as a pair of traps with two lures.
Following the extent of the infestation they can then be managed with best practice bed bug control techniques. If no bed bugs are caught in the trap, this does not guarantee that the room is free from bed bugs.
To the untrained eye and without knowledge of insect morphology, bed bug nymphs can sometimes be misinterpreted as other insects, such as booklice.
Facts & Tips
Bed bugs are parasitic insects that prefer to feed on human blood. The common bed bug, Cimex lectularius, is the most famous species of the Cimicidae family. The name of the “bed bug" is derived from the insect's preferred habitat of being in the vicinity of beds and other areas where people sleep.
Bed bugs are mainly active at night but are not exclusively nocturnal and are capable of feeding on their host without being noticed.
Bed bug bites may cause a number of adverse health effects, including skin rashes, psychological effects and allergic symptoms.
Ideally placed in the bedroom on the floor next to the skirting board, under the headboard of the bed. This allows for an effective and discreet monitoring of the presence of bed bugs. The trap should be kept in the room for a week.
Recommended to be replaced every 4 weeks when in service
