BB ALERT® ECO FRIENDLY PRODUCTS TO MANAGE BED BUG PROBLEMS

Why Is Early Detection Important?


The importance of early detection lies in the fact that the smaller the Bed Bug population is the easier and more cost effective it is to control.

Over a 180 period, one mated adult female Bed Bug results in 7,848 adults, 121,449 nymphs, 69,909 eggs and can result in a staggering 169,490 bites.

During the first 90 days of this 180 period the population of Bed Bugs is at a minimum. This is because during this period only a small amount of the eggs laid by the female Bed Bug have hatched. During the second 90 days these eggs quickly become nymphs and then adults capable of hatching their own eggs. This cycle leads to an exponential rise in the Bed bug population, as demonstated below.


Early Detection will:
  • Lower treatment costs
  • Reduce room closures and lost revenue
  • Prevent guest complaints
  • Increase hotel brand security

The greater the population, the more difficult it becomes to control because the population spreads to other locations across the room as well as across to the adjacent rooms.
