HOW IT WORKS The Verifi™ bed bug detector has been designed to exploit bed bug biology and behavior in order to attract and capture bed bugs, even those that are not currently seeking a meal. An Inside Look

A. The replaceable Verifi™ CO2 booster pack mimics a living, breathing host for about 24 hours using an exclusive chemical reaction to generate carbon dioxide. This reaction starts upon activation and requires no batteries or other power source, allowing for discreet placement and operation.

B. The replaceable Verifi™ lure features two additional attractants: a liquid kairomone that attracts bed bugs seeking a meal and a pheromone that encourages bed bugs to gather together in the harborage area of the device(D). These attractants are continuously emitted for up to 90 days.

C. Bed bugs fall into the pitfall and are unable to climb out, ensuring the pests can’t escape detection. Tiny holes at the bottom of the pitfall allow attractants to be emitted but prevent any small bed bug nymphs from slipping into the device.

D. A harborage area on the back of the detector encourages bed bugs to gather where cast skins, eggs and other visual evidence can be observed, signifying an infestation. E. A self-adhesive sticker allows the detector to be installed without tools.


The innovative design of the Verifi™ bed bug detector offers homeowners and property managers significant advantages over traditional bed bug detection methods.

Visual inspection: The traditional two-person inspection team is time-consuming, expensive and requires rooms with suspected infestations to be disassembled and reassembled. The Verifi bed bug detector can be quickly and easily installed by a single pest management professional without disturbing the rest of the room. Additionally, the occurrence of human error due to subjectivity is minimized.

Canine inspection: The use of canines for bed bug detection is expensive and creates a possibility for a false positive (indicating bed bugs are present when they are not). The Verifi bed bug detector eliminates the potential cost and environmental concerns of unnecessary chemical applications, bringing you increased value and peace of mind.

Other detection devices: Current active bed bug detection devices are only in service for, at most, a few days. This creates the potential to miss any bed bugs that did not make it to the device while it was in service or were introduced to the room after the inspection. Competitive devices can also be large and obtrusive and their operation can be noisy and unpleasant, necessitating rooms be kept unoccupied while the device is in use.

Not so with the Verifi bed bug detector. It can be hidden behind beds and furniture and operates silently, so that it can draw in and detect bed bugs around the clock without alerting occupants to its presence. The device is secured with zip ties to help prevent tampering with inner components.
