    Works as indicator

    By Js on 08/11/2010

    Instructions should say: remove each one from the BOTTOM of the stack, it's much easier. These were for my parents' apartment in NYC, which had already been treated. We put them under chair and sofa legs in the living room, and under wheels of the bed frame in the bedroom. None appeared in the ones under the bed, but we got a few in the OUTER ring of traps in the living room. That was a surprise to us. Made us look hard, we found a place that had them and had not been treated first time (a fabric seat on a kitchen chair - which we promptly discarded) and had the exterminator back the next day to re-treat, this time including the remaining kitchen chairs. So, they served their purpose as indicators, but as the instructions say they are NOT by themselves a control method. In this case, going from kitchen to bedroom could bring bugs to the bed (which were in barrier covers) despite the interceptors under the bed wheels.

    Good results in lab tests, will follow up with field results

    By Enrique on 11/20/2009

    Four stars strictly for idea- just ordered and read some studies on using this Climb Up Insect Inspector. Primarily a monitoring tool/probably won't eliminate bed bugs but gives you an idea of where they are residing and if they are still active following treatment. Inexpensive, and can be used with Diatomaceous Earth to trap bug coming from the bed (may trap bugs in mattress.) Use a mattress cover too and spend the money on a decent one with locking zipper. Eggs must be treated with steam or chemicals or dusts. Good luck.

    Worked well except cracked on carpeted floor

    By Jerry on 12/28/2011

    We bought Climbup interceptors for three beds at our house as part of our bed bug remediation strategy. They have worked properly on the one bed that is on a hardwood floor, but the interceptors cracked when used on carpeted floors. I searched online and found out this is a common problem. I made a set of plywood "coasters" to go under the interceptors which fixed the problem.

    An added step worth the cost

    By George on 09/04/2011

    Good product does trap bedbugs just wish the were more resilient to weight on the bed. Ours cracked and we were able to beef up the bases with structural tape and all is good. They do trap bugs and that's the main thing. Made in USA is a good thing, too.

    Great

    By Yvonne on 09/30/2014

    Verified Purchase

    Exactly as expected, fast service, as advertised product. Interesting that "grandma" used to have these in glass "back in the old days" these were standard for all homes, only in glass.

    My Legs Are Too Fat!!

    By Barb on 09/29/2018

    This is a good product but the top legs on our bed are too thick so they don't fit right. They are fine on the bottom and the idea behind the design is a good one.
