Bed Bug Alert Monitoring and Detection System
Price : $20
 
Qty.:      [ ]  
 
 

The BB ALERT® Bed Bug Monitoring and Detection System comprises of two products:

  1. The BB ALERT® Active, and
  2. The BB ALERT® Passive

The BB ALERT® Active is designed to monitor for bed bugs that are looking for a blood meal, by mimicking a human host.

The BB ALERT® Passive is designed to monitor for Bed Bugs that have had a blood meal and identifies the presence of bed bugs through identification of the black spots that Bed Bugs excrete before harbouring.

For best results the two products should be used together as a system, ensuring that Bed Bugs are identified whether they have had a blood meal or whether they are looking for a blood meal. This allows for the monitoring and detection of bed bugs across their full lifecycle.

 

Features:

- A cost effective solution to the problem of early detection of Bed Bugs

- Discreet

- Simple to use

- Pesticide free

- Available for use by both professional pest control specialists and homeowners

 

 
 

1. BB ALERT® Active is a Bed Bug monitor which is designed to attract Bed Bugs by mimicking a host.

Bed Bugs feed exclusively on the blood of warm blooded animals (specifically, people) and they use a number of "clues" to help locate their meals. BB ALERT® Active simulates the warmth and respiration that Bed Bugs use as indicators to find their hosts.

The BB ALERT® Active replaceable activator is supplied in a sealed package. When opened and exposed to the air it starts to generate heat and moisture, which together are mimics of the mammalian respiration signs that triggers a feeding response in Bed Bugs. The activator is placed inside the BB ALERT® Active base and enclosed by the insulated top cover.

When in use, the insulated top cover leaves a specifically designed gap around the unit's base. This restricts the flow of air, creating a micro-climate within the device and a controlled flow of heat and moisture to the outside. This temperature and humidity gradient leads the Bed Bug to the trap.

Around the base of the BB ALERT® Active are rows of small spikes. These mimic the hairs typically found on mammals, and provides discretion for the unit's contents. Inside the base of the unit is the insect adhesive that traps the Bed Bugs.

Years of trials and field tests with "live" Bed Bug infestations have demonstrated that the BB ALERT® Active will detect large numbers of nymphs as well as adult Bed Bugs.

 

2. BB ALERT® Passive is designed to provide an ideal harborage for Bed Bugs. When the monitor is placed in proximity to potential feeding sites, the large number of small crevices it contains are highly attractive to Bed Bugs as a potential harborage. The monitor incorporates a white band around the exterior, which clearly shows the fecal staining of Bed Bug activity when the insects are present.

Early detection of Bed Bug activity is acknowledged as a key factor in reducing the disruption, cost and effort of remedial treatment. Bed Bugs are notoriously cryptic pests, with most infestations remaining undetected until they reach a significant size. The BB ALERT® Passive monitor is a discreet alternate to the labor intensive task of routine inspection for the presence of Bed Bugs.

As the BB ALERT® Passive name implies, this monitor contains no moving parts or consumables. Its simplicity allows it to provide continuous unattended monitoring for up to a full year, making it very cost-effective.

BB ALERT® Passive is a monitoring device to provide early detection of Bed Bug activity.

Although Bed Bugs feed exclusively on the blood of warm blooded animals, they prefer to live in narrow spaces close to their host, such as cracks and crevices. When feeding, the Bed Bug becomes engorged and swells to accommodate the meal. This would prevent it from returning to the safety of its preferred harborage, and so it voids the excess water from its meal, retaining only the nutrients and solids. This leaves distinctive black sticky marks close to the resting sites.
