In this episode Jeff will talk about the Nightwatch bed bug monitor, how to set the monitor to trap for bugs, ideal situations to set the trap in and what to expect when setting the trap.  The Nightwatch bed bug monitor is an active monitor that release attractants that are intended to attract hungry bed bugs.  Always remember that not all bed bugs in a given infestation are going to be attracted to a monitor and therefore a zero-trap-catch does not necessarily mean that bed bugs are not present.  This monitor is intended to be used to help evaluate if bed bugs are present in a given environment.  Studies have been conducted that did show that this monitor can be effective for detecting low level bed bug infestations.  Some ideal situations for this monitor are in situations where it does not compete with other hosts (ex. humans, although it has been shown to be effective for detecting bugs in the presence of humans) such as:  offices, schools, vacant apartments or homes, pre-move-in inspections, etc...
