These bed bug detectors are ideally placed in the bedroom on the floor next to the skirting board, under the headboard of the bed. This allows for an effective and discreet monitoring of the presence of bed bugs.
The bed bug detector should be placed in the room for a week. Following analysis of the distribution of the bed bug infestation, the extent of the infestation in the block or hotel can then be managed with best practice bed bug control techniques. If no bed bugs are caught in the trap following the recommended placement duration, this does not guarantee that the room is free from bed bugs.
