    Anyone hear of anything happening with the new bed bug traps that are expected to be developed soon?

    Thanks

    Mr Bill

    There may be a working trap soon:
    http://bedbugger.com/2008/06/08/another-bed-bug-trap-in-the-works/

    Or not so soon:
    http://bedbugger.com/2008/06/17/bed-bug-aggregate-pheromone-traps-within-two-years-says-dr-gerhard-gries/

    Believe me, when something works and is available, we'll tell you.

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

    NoBugs:

    Can we be notified by e-mail when something is developed?

    Thanks

    Sorry, I can't really offer to email people when a particular event happens. You can subscribe to the blog by RSS feed and screen the titles of new posts until you find a relevant one.

    Sign up for http://google.com/reader/

    It's free.

    Yahoo, AOL, and other services also have RSS feed readers, but you will have to identify yours and activate it if necessary before you can subscribe. http://bloglines.com is a web-based RSS reader, also free.

    (update: as of 2012, Google Reader is probably the most poplar. NetNewsWire is great for Mac/iOS. Similar apps exist for Windows and Android.)

    Then, and only after you've done that, click here to subscribe to the blog: http://bedbugger.com/feed/rss

    Some may also wish to subscribe to comments from the blog:
    http://bedbugger.com/comments/feed

    or the forums posts:
    http://bedbugger.com/forum/rss/

    You can also click "rss feed" on any blog or website to subscribe to that site's content. Newspaper websites often have RSS feeds of the news. It is a good thing to try out.

    Well, NoBugs, since I have no idea of what I'm doing, I guess I'll just forget it.

    Thanks anyway

    Bill

    Mr Bill,

    If you tell me where the directions are unclear, I'd be happy to help.

    Hi Mr. Bill,

    Feedreaders are an easy way to read many different things you're interested in, all on one screen, as new information becomes available.

    Just for example, you could stay on top of the Bedbugger topics you're interested in, be alerted when the New York Times publishes new sports articles, find out sports scores from ESPN, etc.

    Google reader, which NoBugs mentions above, is one option. Some people use Bloglines.com. There are others. Basically, you sign up for one of these (free) services, and then you add the "RSS feeds" you want to follow. Don't let the lingo freak you out. This just means you put in a specific address for each thing you want to stay on top of, and then Google Reader or Bloglines or whatever feedreader you're using reflects new information as it appears.

    Let's say you wanted to know whenever someone posted something new about bed bug traps and pheremones. You would add these two RSS feeds to your feedreader:
    http://bedbugger.com/forum/tags/pheremone
    http://bedbugger.com/forum/tags/bed-bug-traps

    And then the feedreader would alert you whenever new posts appeared.

    Same idea with The New York Times or Wall Street Journal, or whatever. You would just go to the page listing all RSS feeds, find the feeds for the topics you wanted to follow , and add them to your feedreader. Here, for example, are all the Times RSS feeds.
    http://www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/index.html

    I don't know if this is helpful, but don't let yourself be intimidated by something that's really very easy to navigate, once you get the hang of it.
