What Is BDS™?
Catchmaster Bedbug Detection System (BDS™) is a patented device designed to detect bedbugs BEFORE they proliferate and infest a new location.
How It Works
BDS™ simulates the conditions that bedbugs consider “perfect harborage”: tight, dark tunneling and rough woodsy material. (Common examples are the small grooves of corrugated boxes, mattress creases and wood furniture.)
Through careful research of bedbug biology, we have developed a trap that imitates these patterns. If bedbugs are nearby, they are drawn to the BDS™ and trapped in its patented dot-matrix adhesive.
Is BDS™ Foolproof?
A “negative” reading on a BDS™ monitor does not necessarily guarantee that there are no bedbugs.
BDS™ is designed to be ONE PART of your strategy to combat and manage bedbugs in your accounts. It can provide you with valuable information, such as where bedbugs may be harboring, and it can confirm to a customer beyond any doubt that bedbugs are present.
BDS™ should be used as a center point for inspection by a trained pest management professional.
Why Early Detection Is Key
BDS™ is the first monitor for bedbugs that can be employed on a large scale as part of an IPM/Early Detection/Ongoing Inspection program.
We were driven to design this first-of-its kind device by simple economics: the bedbug monitors currently on the market cost from as “little” as $20-$25 to as much as $600! At these rates, it is difficult to imagine a large-scale program being used in a 250 room hotel, or a 400 unit apartment complex.
BDS™ is priced at a fraction of these costs, giving pest management companies the tools to employ a comprehensive inspection and prevention plan that is focused on early detection.
After a bedbug treatment, BDS™ should be installed to illustrate that the treatment was effective and to help identify any post-treatment activity.
How Is BDS™ Used?
Marketing your company as a proactive service company that can perform regular inspections —instead of a reactive “911” emergency service—will give new life to your company.
BDS™ is designed as a detection device and should be utilized in any place that people congregate:
- Multiple-Unit Dwellings/Apartment Complexes
- Long-term care facilities
- Public transportation
- Summer Camps
