BioCare First Response Bed Bug Detection Monitors The First Response Bed Bug Monitor is designed to help you detect bed bug infestations at home or while traveling. Just set a trap up before you go to bed, check the trap in the morning. The trap is effective for 24 hours. Bed bugs will be attracted to the heat and the lure, and get caught in the sticky pad. Against the plain white background, they'll be easily visible for confirmation that there are bed bugs present in the room. An established bed bug infestation has usually discovered the quickest route to get to their victims. Moving the bed before setting the trap disrupts their routine and forces them to search for you. This increases the effectiveness of the traps as they decoy the bed bugs onto the sticky trap and not on to you. Allow 2 weeks after any bed bug treatment before placing Bed Bug Traps or Monitors, as residuals from treatment may affect catches. BioCare First Response Bed Bug Traps and Refill Kits also available. Package contains 2 complete monitoring traps.
