“Field conditions are usually much more complex than laboratory environments.”
Well there is a surprise.
To sell a monitor with no in field study and to solely rely on a controlled laboratory experiment is the epitome of -The Snake Oil Salesmen
“The presence of a human host, clutter, furniture, and various odors from food and household cleaning agents could significantly affect the performance of a bed bug monitor.”
Yet another surprise
“suggested that an effective monitor can be used in unoccupied infested rooms to trap the hungry bed bugs and for reducing the probability of bed bugs dispersing into adjacent uninfested rooms.”
HUMMM ---- Morton's or McDonald’s ???????? but wait-
“Further research is needed to optimize the chemical lure release rate and CO2 release rate and to evaluate the effectiveness of baited monitors under various field conditions.”
WOW I am enlightened.
Interesting how all this information is left out of the advertising. No disclaimers or side effects. But on sale now.
The sensationalism and buzz over bedbugs is only exceeded by the greed of those trying to corner a market with garbage.
Home Bed bugs traps, lures, and kits to keep college students from getting bed bugs. Even-Executive Travel Kits. On and On. None with guarantees.
I see these items every week. Clients – DIY enthusiasts, desperate people trying to rid their homes of bed bugs. All regret having spent the time in any of these products.
Deceptive and Indirect Techniques of Persuasion
It is easy and cheep to make a company, a product or service look legitimate on line. Self-proclaimed experts selling a-z in bed bug care. Selling services and products to meet all economic levels all while taking money. Fraternities of individuals miss leading uninformed individuals, making a living promoting, selling or promising anything they can at the expense of their clients with out regard of out come.
Again I close with this
