Modern Pest Services recommends several products for commercial and residential clients that can be used as part of an integrated pest management approach to help monitor and prevent bed bugs.
NightWatch Bed Bug Trap and Monitor
NightWatch Bed Bug Trap and Monitor, created by Biosensory Inc., is designed as a lure and monitor to help determine if you have bed bugs. By mimicking a living, breathing person, it releases CO2, heat, and a patented lure (kairomone) to attract bed bugs. When bed bugs approach to feed on what they think is a human, they fall into the pitfall traps and cannot escape. The NightWatch Trap and Monitor can be programmed to release the chemical attractants during the night when bed bugs are most active.

Kleen Cover® Mattress Encasements
Since the majority of bed bug infestations are found on your mattress and box spring, encasements offer total protection against bed bugs. If there is an infestation, the encasement traps existing bed bugs inside where they will eventually starve to death. New bed bugs cannot penetrate the encasement confining them to exterior areas of the bedroom where they can be detected and treated more easily. Certified as 100% bed bug proof by an independent entomologist laboratory, Modern offers Kleen Cover® Mattress Covers as an inexpensive and highly effective way to manage bed bugs. These are great for college students!
Climbup® Insect Interceptor
The Climbup® Insect Interceptor, developed by entomologist-turned-teacher Susan McKnight Inc., is a simple and innovative solution designed to monitor the presence of bed bugs and help prevent bed bugs from ever coming into contact with you or your bed. The round plastic disc is placed under the legs of your bed. Bed bugs approaching or climbing down from your bed will either fall into the outer pitfall ring or center well and cannot escape. The Climbup Insect Interceptor can also be used under the legs of bedroom furniture such as nightstands or other furniture used for resting. Another great item for college students!
