Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitors use a food grade molasses that is already applied to the boards to attract insects. Equipped with an adhesive backing you can place the Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitors anywhere and in any position so you can make sure that your monitors are where insects are likely to pass. Each board consists of three monitors that can be torn off using the perforated lines, or you can use the entire board as a large trap. The adhesive backing on the Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitors can last an entire year under normal circumstances giving you peace of mind that your monitor will be where you put it for a long time.
I used to use mice glue boards for insect monitoring. There were two problems. First, if the glue boards were on the ground for any length of time, they collected a lot dirt & fuzz. Second, the smell of that peanut butter scent drove me crazy!
These Catchmaster 100i stations mount to the wall and are vanilla scented. Much better than those glue boards.
So far, no insect yet.
Am I defeating the purpose of spraying an insecticide and IGR by catching them on the Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitors?
I have been using these while spraying with phantom and gentrol and applying gel and I'm wondering if that's ok? I have some placed in bathroom behind toilet and under sink as well as in bedrooms. Is it ok to have them out can you please let me know of proper use and placement while actively treating for German roaches
Not necessarily. The Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitors can be used for several different purposes, not just catching insects. You can also use them throughout your home to monitor to pest activity, as well to see where you have certain pest populations. That is why we include some of them in our Roach Control Kits as well.
Will Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitors catch them and keep them until they die on there own?
Or do you recommend using Boric Acid or Diatomaceous earth inside or around these? What bugs do these catch?
Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitors (100 boards - 300 monitors) is designed to catch any insect that walks across them and monitors areas of suspected infestation. Insects will eventually die just from being stuck on the trap. You would not add anything to the glue surface as this could prevent insects from being caught. If you want to use dust, you should apply around the rooms under baseboards, behind electrical outlets, switch plates, etc. as part of an Integrated Pest Management program.
