BlackOut is an interception device that is placed under the legs of beds and upholstered furniture and designed to intercept bed bugs.
LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. —BedBug Central announced the sale of its newly developed interception device, BlackOut BedBug Detector to Protect-A-Bed.
BedBug Central says it recognizes the ability Protect-A-Bed has in helping the commercial marketplace understand BlackOut’s fullest potential. BlackOut – an interception device that is placed under the legs of beds and upholstered furniture and designed to intercept bed bugs – was created by BedBug Central Technical Director Jeffrey White.
BedBug Central selected Protect-A-Bed because they are a well-respected bed bug resource and uniquely poised to deliver the message of the various uses of interception devices in both reactive and detective bed bug programs.
“Having seen the success Protect-A-Bed has with their mattress encasement lines, we’re excited to work together in creating a sales model that allows BlackOut to reach its full potential,” said White. “Our goal in working with Protect-A-Bed is to make interception devices a standard part of protecting your bed from bed bugs.”
According to Protect-A-Bed’s CEO, James Bell, BlackOut is an opportunity for the company to expand its presence in the category, outside of mattress protection. “We feel BlackOut is a great tool for consumers to protect themselves against bed bugs,” said Bell. “It really compliments our philosophy to provide essential, state-of-the-art bed bug prevention and management tools.”
As part of this deal, Protect-A-Bed will continue to manufacture BlackOut in the United States and work closely with the pest management distribution channels to ensure a proper supply chain to the industry.
“Since its introduction, BlackOut sales have widely exceeded the initial projections,” said Phil Cooper, CEO of BedBug Central. “Partnering with Protect-A-Bed is a real win for the pest management industry. We are thrilled with the positive feedback it’s received as we knew from day one that it was a remarkable interception device.”
