AP&G Introduces Catchmaster Bedbug Detection System

Supplier News

The product simulates the conditions that appeal strongly to bed bugs.

| March 4, 2010

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — A new bed bug monitor called Catchmaster BDS (Bedbug Detection System), is being introduced to the pest control market by AP&G. It’s designed to give PMPs an extra edge on early detection.

“This is the first monitor that can be employed on a large scale as part of an IPM/early detection program for bed bugs,” said Jonathan Frisch, vice president of the Brooklyn-based company. “It is designed specifically to detect bed bugs before they proliferate and infest a new location.”

The product, which simulates the conditions that appeal strongly to bed bugs, was created based on AP&G research into the biology and behavior of bed bugs. According to AP&G, research shows that bed bugs favor small spaces and uneven textures and materials. The BDS, therefore, was created as a harborage providing tight, dark tunneling and rough woodsy material, similar to the small grooves of corrugated boxes, mattress creases and wood furniture. If bed bugs are located nearby, they’re drawn to the BDS and trapped in its patented and unique adhesive pattern coated on untreated paper.

According to Frisch, the relatively inexpensive pricing of the BDS will allow a pest management company to readily employ this tool to identify a bed bug problem before it gets out of control. “It should also be installed after a bed bug treatment to either illustrate that the treatment was effective or to assist in identifying continued post-treatment activity,” he said.
