    I found some of these (Hot Shot bed interceptors) at my local hardware store, and I was wondering if anyone has tried these. I know not to buy the fogger and spray but am wondering if these would help any. Or should I use the Climb-up interceptors? What is the best recommended choice?

    Any interceptor device needs to be maintained. In other words, after installing the devices, you still need to conduct weekly inspections on the bed and ensure that the interceptors are cleaned and maintained with talc.

    This is a recent addition to the range of interceptor style traps. I don't recall any pros here commenting on it yet, but would be interested to hear if they are using them.

    A lot of people have used other styles of interceptor (eg Climbup and Blackout) which are covered in our FAQ on bed bug monitors, and various pros have recommended those.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
