    I apologize if this has been asked, I can't seem to figure out how to search the forum history.

    I'm not having luck with the yeast/sugar CO2 traps because the yeast isn't fermenting for some reason. Dry ice is too complicated for me to obtain and store so I will be getting a CO2 tank to provide CO2 to the traps. I've watched umpteen videos on using tanks to provide CO2 for aquariums and indoor gardens so I feel like I can set up a tank with confidence. But I'm missing one piece of the puzzle... what rate should I set the output CO2 at to mimic human breathing and attract the bed bugs to the trap?

    I found this nugget of info but not sure what to do with it.

    Sleeping person respiration: 0.3 cubic meters per hour (m3/h)
    Sleeping person CO2 emission: 0.013 cubic meters per hour (m3/h)

    Hi,

    The issue is not one of output.

    I get great catch with the Beacon but understand that changes in the quality of the mix used occurs if I make my own. I also know that changing the bottle shape can effect the efficiency. This is why I stick to the finished product, because it gives me the results I am looking for.

    Hope that helps.
