Building a Better Bed Bug Trap

Building a Better Bed Bug Trap

It is important to sure that the bed bugs are present then treatments are done Researches the University of Florida’s institutes of food and agriculture science develop a bedbug trap that can be used to build with household items. Phil Koehler, UF / IFA professor of entomology urban Everything you is two disposable containers must, adhesive tape and the adhesive masking. The fishing traps and collects the insects, as they try to move the people and places where bed bugs are hiding, he said.

And he also said that “This concept of the game work in the places where people sleep and to protect these places”

The cases are based on the poor ability of insects climbing on slippery surfaces, he said. Instead, the traps are easy to make the rough places to error bed, and a smooth surface gap that prevents them from escaping.

Here’s how to make this:

  • Cut four pieces of tape on the rough surface. Each piece should be at least as long as the vessel wall less informed.
  • Evenly space and press firmly vertically on the four pieces of tape on the inner surface of the smaller container. The strips insects are the small container to escape and easily fall into the gap between the small and the wall of the wide vessel, where they cornered.
  • Wrap, so that the insects can easily penetrate into the trap the tape around the outside of the main holder of the base to the top.
  • Glue the smaller container in the lower middle of the larger vessel.

This trap work best when you speak, including baby powder, the gap between small and large walls of the container to make it harder to escape the insects. Many people use the wrong methods to handle the error. Koehler recommends the use of non-flammable liquids, mothballs, treatment mattresses with pesticides and bug bombs.

The case is a surprisingly simple solution to an annoying national problem.

An April 2013 survey by the National Association of Pest found that almost all professionals in pest management, 99.6 percent experienced a bedbug infestation in the past 12 months. Nearly half, 49 percent, said infestations usually occur in the summer. Because more and more people in the summer to travel and move around tents you can bring most of them home inadvertent errors or detect, moving shortly after the group of pesticides.
