    We are fairly certain these (especially the Beacon) work, right? I mean, it's not just a theory, we know they work?

    If so, I am going to order a Beacon today to try to get some freaking proof. I seem to be reacting less to bites - which is good for my comfort level but bad for detection and proof. But Beacons are pricey to buy if they don't work - so will they, nd what are my best chances of getting them to work?

    I dont have a beacon, so I dont know, but Jeff White at bedbugcentral tv on youtube discusses one I think. theres also a cheaper moniter.
    http://sosbedbug.com/?p=424 that just secretes co2 over a week. Jeff talks about these and how they are not preventative, but just to diagnose you, and how the bugs have to be kind of hungry and a medium to heavy infestation to find results. so... I dunno.

    I am using the packtite, and I love it. I cant vouch for it yet, because I havent UNpacked anything, but it is a great reassurance to see the temp. go up to 140 degrees in the thermometer. There is a video of bedbugs in a glass jar in the pack tite, and those suckers get reallllly angry at 120 degrees, and then they die!

    YAY!
