Video from AP&G Offers Tips For Bed Bug Monitoring Approaches

Bed bugs

BDS system allows for economical, large-scale monitoring for early detection.

| December 24, 2010

Brooklyn, N.Y. — Understanding the principles of bed bug intervention strategies and learning the best ways to implement an effective monitoring program are now made simple through a new video offered by AP&G. This free, three-minute program provides new insights to the value that early detection can provide.

It also outlines the clear benefits of their Catchmaster line’s new “passive” detection system called BDS (Bedbug Detection System), which is designed specifically to monitor for Bedbugs on a large scale.

“This program was created specifically for the needs of pest management professionals or anyone faced with the prospect of bed bug infestations,” said Jonathan Frisch, AP&G’s vice president of sales and marketing. “By fully appreciating the true threat that exists for everyone, and becoming aware of resources like the BDS monitoring system, steps can be taken to implement an intervention strategy and help identify infestations at the earliest possible moment.

“What’s more, even if an infestation occurs, BDS can also act as a protective step to ward off recurring infestations once an original one is brought under control,” Frisch added.

BDS is a patented passive monitoring device designed to detect bed bugs before they proliferate and infest a new location. Taking advantage of bed bug biology, AP&G has developed what it says a bed bug would consider to be a perfect harborage — a place they prefer to hide and breed. Bed bugs favor tight, dark spaces and textured surfaces. This is why they tend to hide in the cracks and crevices of wooden furniture or in the creases of mattresses.

There is also significant data illustrating how bed bugs seek out narrow tunnels — such as the small grooves on corrugated boxes. BDS re-creates these conditions using a unique patented adhesive pattern that is coated on an untreated coarse substrate. The combination offers bed bugs an ideal place to hide, but at the same time, creates a foolproof method of trapping early specimens, the firm reports.

When strategically placed throughout the target areas, BDS monitors act as both an interceptor trap, by creating an adhesive barrier when used around bedposts, and as a passive monitor, to provide early detection in sheltered locations, thus allowing chemical treatments to be limited to fewer areas.
