    I got a white metal bed frame and want to put climb up traps on all the feet, which are the best to use?

    Any one you want. Whats important is that you use them properly and clean them regularly.

    If you have carpet, go to Home Depot and pick up some of the metal electrical box covers to put underneath the trap. Works like a charm.

    I've seen some heat glued to a piece of wood for stability. The wood surface under the monitor could be attractive to bed bugs.
