Verifi Bed Bug Detector Now Available

Supplier News

The new bed bug detection product from FMC is now available to pest management professionals (PMPs).

| June 11, 2012

PHILADELPHIA – The Verifi bed bug detector, from FMC Professional Solutions, is now available to pest management professionals (PMPs).

Verifi is the first bed bug detection device to provide up to three months of active detection before re-activating with affordable replaceable components, allowing for long-term monitoring.

PMPs wishing to purchase the Verifi bed bug detector should contact their local FMC marketing specialist or FMC agent.

The Verifi bed bug detector allows PMPs to provide their customers with ongoing bed bug service, while generating a valuable reoccurring revenue stream. The detector is small, unobtrusive and easily installed on walls or behind furniture.

FMC’s bed bug detection technology features three attractants in a patent-pending combination to lure bed bugs over both short and long periods. They are:
•    A CO2-generating cartridge which mimics a living, breathing host for about 24 hours
•    A liquid kairomone lure that works to attract bed bugs seeking a meal
•    A liquid pheromone lure that encourages bed bugs to aggregate - or gather together - in the device

By continuing to detect bed bugs for up to 90 days, Verifi works on three levels: detecting that an infestation is present, confirming that treatment was successful and providing ongoing detection to ensure that bed bugs are gone or to identify any new bed bugs that are introduced.

It is important to note that Verifi is not a control product. It is designed to detect only. FMC offers a variety of products and forcmulations registered for use in bed bug management programs.
