    Even in north america climbups are not 100%.
    Apparently determined bugs can climb them (might take a few tries) and climbups need to be kept clean to remain smooth.
    They are better than nothing.

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    there are some humans that can run 100 meters in less than 10 seconds, some others can jump over 8 meters and so on, but most can't... yes some bugs can climb better than others, but definitely not all... this is why we always recommend to not rely on a single approach such as interceptors

    The tropical bed bug is clearly better at doing this than is the common bed bug. The TBB is better equipped with its fossula spongiosa than is the CBB.
