    Hopefully this one developed by Dr. Gries at SFU in Toronto will be on the market real soon: https://www.sfu.ca/sfunews/stories/2014/sfu-scientists-help-put-bedbugs-to-bed-forever.html It was first going to commercially developed and marketed by a company that went bankrupt and is now suppose to be done by Scott Canada.

    I suppose so, I'm wondering about their effectiveness in general. I had a pantry moth infestation a dozen years ago and the pheromone traps took care of it quickly. (It attracted the males and therefore prevented mating.) So I'm curious about the effectiveness of bb pheromone traps.

    If you read the article it seems Professor Gries' invention would be great. Your moth thing sounded fantastic. Are you using a PCO or just self-treating.

    Tangent: I learned about bb mating and reproduction. That was an eye opener!

    Hopefully it will come out real soon - seems would be a big money-maker so I don't know why they're not rushing.

    I have to self treat, no money for a PCO.

    Not hard so far, there is Cimexa on everything and I spray around the bed. No bites in weeks *knock on wood*. The real work is cleaning up all this stuff I have gathered through the years. It can seem overwhelming if I think about it so I just do a little each day being careful to prevent spreading bugs.

    Hope you remain bite-free. What are you spraying?

    What are you spraying?

    I think you asked me that on another post.

    For direct contact I spray Bayer Advanced Home Pest Plus Germ Killer Indoor and Outdoor Insect Spray. Used these days to attack suspicious spots on the floor that I can't see clearly without my reading glasses.

    For residual I use Harris Resistant Bed Bug Spray.
