Toronto, ON Canada (PressExposure) April 05, 2012 -- With early detection being a key point in recognizing and then containing a bed bug infestation before costs get out of hand, pest control professionals now have an even better tool in their tool box.
Early monitoring is crucial in controlling bed bugs.
North Americans are very anxious about the spread of bed bugs into their homes, workplaces and schools. Only one bed bug, a pregnant female, is all that is needed to cause an infestation. Waiting until the remnants of a blood meal are on your sheet or pillow is not necessary to know that professional help is needed.
The Bed Moat, a bed bug monitor sold in North America and Europe has now made their leading monitor more effective. Adding a special black tape made in the USA, the company likes to refer as Secured Zone, may makes this the most effective monitor on the market and is exterminator approved. Square by design, it is strong in corners but discreet in height. Important research has proven that bed bugs prefer dark areas so the black edge assists bed bug monitors in attracting bed bugs while keeping ease of inspection with a bright interior.
The Bed Moat Inc. was the first company to introduce a black bed bug monitor which also acts as a bed bug trap. David Smorenburg, one of the owners of the Bed Moat Inc., claims the black and brown colors were originally introduced to the hospitality industry to keep monitoring discreet.
Sandy Costa, also of The Bed Moat Inc., suggests this theory may not be too out of touch with reality as bed bugs do like to hide after feeding so a darker location seems a logical destination.
The Bed Moat bed bug monitor with Secured Zone will be introduced at the National Pest Management Associations Bed Bug Forum being held in Garden Grove, California from May 2-4, 2012.
The problem of bed bugs is not going away. Early detection devices, such as The Bed Moat, are crucial in the control of bed bugs.
