    I haven't seen any pros here recommend Bird X monitors, for what it's worth.

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

    Hi,

    This design was initially launched under the ClearView branding. I know I am not the only one to fail to get capture in a tank trial but as the video below illustrates bed bugs don't generally get caught on glue:

    Hope that helps explain.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro

    Hi,

    Sadly I can only agree with your assessment of some peoples technical abilities. Its sad really because so few would recommend someone they know is not top of their game.

    Professional service should never be a lucky dip.

    David
