BB Alert Passive Bed Bug Monitor features an optimized bedbug harbourage that encourages them to interact with the monitor. An eco-friendly device, it is heat, chemical, fragrance and upkeep free. Design allows easy inspection for fecal traces, cast skins and live samples in a few seconds.
Passive monitors are most effective when someone is sleeping in the bed on a regular basis. We recommend using “active” monitors when no one is sleeping in the bed/room at the current time.
If signs of bed bugs (fecal spots or cast skins) are detected on the monitor then there are likely bed bugs sleeping inside the monitor. Immediately place monitor in a Ziploc bag (see below) and call a pest control professional. Never assume that the monitor will catch every bed bug in the room.
BB ALERT® Passive is a monitor that is specifically designed to provide an ideal hiding place for Bed Bugs. When it is placed near potential feeding sites, any active Bed Bugs will find its large number of small crevices very tempting. A white band around the sides of the device clearly shows the fecal staining & cast skins of Bed Bug activity if the insects are present. Click Here for Photos of Tell-Tale Signs of Bed Bugs
Bed Bugs will travel considerable distances between their daytime resting sites and the host, but will almost always
prefer to rest very close to their feeding site if a suitable secure harborage is available. The BB ALERT® PASSIVE
monitor should therefore be positioned as close to the potential feeding site as possible, bearing in mind that it
should not be subject to continuous disturbance and will need to be available for routine visual inspection. The actual
placement will vary from situation to situation, but some suggested sites are:
Inspection of the BB ALERT® PASSIVE monitor should be made at a minimum interval of once per month for general
monitoring, and as often as once per week in high risk situations. The monitors cover includes a calendar grid which
should be used to note the inspection date. If no Bed Bugs are found, the BB ALERT® PASSIVE monitor should be left
