    I have heard flea traps or hand warmers can trap bed bugs. How does this work?

    No. Flea traps can trap fleas if you have them (good for diagnostic).

    Sean Rollo recommends an activated disposable handwarmer in the center of a gluetrap MAY attract bed bugs. He has seen it happen. But it is more likely with repeated attempts (new hand warmer each time) and obviously, if you are around, the bug will probably choose you instead of the trap, so try it when you are out at night. And repeat many times.

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