Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 17, 2011
It’s the news people have been waiting to hear: there is a way to get bedbug peace of mind. Last week, Bird-X introduced "Bed Bug Alert" at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas, sparking an immediate and sensational level of interest from vendors, attendees and media personnel. Bed Bug Alert is a clear, safe, rigid plastic bedbug monitoring device—about the size of a business card—that slips under the mattress or into other tight spaces where bedbugs are suspected. A special gel inside the device, containing human pheromones, attracts and traps bedbugs if they are present, alerting the user to the problem before it’s too late. Bed Bug Alert is the first and only product of its kind and is currently patent-pending. It is expected to produce worldwide ramifications for consumers, business owners, and most specifically, travelers.
Bedbugs are found in homes, apartments, dorm rooms, hotel rooms, airplanes, public transit seats, cars and moving vans—pretty much anywhere they can find a human host. They then attach themselves to clothing and other belongings and are (unknowingly) transported to new locations. However, consumers and business owners now have the power to detect bedbugs in time to prevent bites and infestation, with Bed Bug Alert.
As highlighted in recent news coverage, bedbugs are known to carry at least 27 agents of human disease, including the drug-resistant bacteria (or “superbugs”) MRSA and VRE, and even Hepatitis and HIV (according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention journal). Scientists are still working to determine the threat of transmission. However, there is no reason to take chances when a detection system this simple exists.
The Bed Bug Alert is a simple, discreet and an affordable way to check for bedbugs anywhere:
- Homeowners – check daily
- Hospitality industry – monitor all rooms discreetly
- Travelers – test hotel and motel beds upon arrival
- Families – keep an eye on hospitals or long-term care facilities for loved ones
- Students – screen dorm rooms
Bed Bug Alert users should inspect the device daily. If a bedbug shows up, a local pest control company should be contacted. If not, users can sleep sound knowing they are safe.
