Have you used interceptors for bed bug services, but aren’t getting results? These tips might help:

  • While “under-the-leg” interceptors are designed for use under the legs of furniture, they also will capture bugs when placed on the floor next to beds and couches.
  • Thoroughly clean your interceptors every four weeks with a microfiber cloth. Dust and debris can otherwise accumulate, allowing bed bugs to escape.
  • Try adding an active bed bug lure to increase the catch rate of any interceptor or glue board.
  • Research from the University of Florida found bed bugs are attracted to darker colors, so consider that factor as you place your interceptors.
  • Research conducted at Rutgers University shows placing interceptors in locations away from beds can help you find bed bugs occurring in unusual places.
