On carpeting, I understand these ClimbUp Insect Interceptors need to be reinforced on the bottom or bed posts or furniture posts. Can they crack them when used?


Yes, you should place a 3" rigid disc underneath the ClimbUp Insect Interceptor as indicated on our website to prevent cracking of the device.   Precautionary Statement:   Furniture legs may break through the inner well when padded carpeting is present. 
If carpeting is present in your home, the underside of the inner well may not have enough support to prevent it from breaking.  If the inner well becomes cracked or broken, the broken device should be washed and discarded and replaced with a new ClimbUp device. Cracking can be prevented over padded carpet by reinforcing with a 3” diameter rigid disk under the device, for example a 3” steel dock washer.
