Bed Bug business doesn't want Dim light to be true....(5 posts)
What is it ? Total control by you will bring relief.
Crackpot ideas don't work in real world circumstances. You suggest I tell my clients to keep a dim light on and some fly paper near by to help with my treatment efforts?
Comon now.... You don't know what you're talking about and many people on here don't even know what you're talking about.
Hmmmm . . .
I think in the UK they commonly refer to "a dim bulb" as a person who is the opposite of intelligent.
You have claimed in another thread that leaving a light on will attract bed bugs.
Multiple bed bug experts have said this does not work with bed bugs. As "KillerQueen" pointed out, they will flee light.
It's possible you are attracting another pest. Or perhaps the heat was attracting bed bugs. Nevertheless, it is not a good treatment plan.
I am not in the treatment business.
You're welcome to participate in discussions here and if you read a bit more, you may learn more about this pest and how to defeat it.

Your "DIY heat" plan sounded so dangerous to life and property to everyone who commented that it was also deleted. This is not a forum for posting ideas which are unsafe or do not work.
If you don't like that, sorry, but you can start your own website.
Let me just start with:
And then don my tin foil hat for an explanation.
You assume that bedbugs will over time move to the source of heat. We as it happens there has been such a device on the market for some years. It's not considered effect and it's based on just heat and no other lure.
We know from research that the best lure for bedbugs is CO2 but sadly not even that will "trap out" all bedbugs and yes it's been tried and debated and done to death.
The reality is that people turn to professionals for many reasons. The main reason is in fact that in just the same way as a hairdresser, a surgeon, a lawyers and any number of other professions you bring experience to the table.
OK not all professionals have extensive experience or use the latest methods but if you select the right one for you then you effectively work in partnership to resolve the issue as efficiently as possible.
I am sorry if you feel your idea is being suppressed but one of the key reasons why people come to this website as a resource is for help and facts. Some of us and not frightened to say what is OL and what is not, what will work and what will fail.
Good ideas get supported but bad ones are quickly weeded out and dropped. It may not feel that way in your case but I still remember the first post from a bold inventor declaring a new solution that has stood the test of time and is now better know as PackTite.
And finally yes gentlemen the phrase dim has grown from the UK insult "as bright as a toc-h lamp" in reference to the blitz lanterns of WWII which threw out such low levels of illumination as to be a dim light.
It's a long path between an idea and a bedbug solution and it starts with testing, testing and testing in multiple locations and ideally multiple countries.
