What is the Verifi bed bug detector?
The Verifi bed bug detector is a new bed bug detection tool that gives pest management professionals a better, easier and more economical way to inspect for bed bugs. Small, discreet and easy-to-use, Verifi features an optimized combination of attractants to draw in and detect bed bugs of all life stages for up to 90 days.
Who makes the Verifi bed bug detector?
The Verifi bed bug detector was developed and manufactured by FMC Corporation. Based in Philadelphia, FMC offers the pest control industry’s most trusted brands, including Talstar, Transport, Cynoff insecticides and CB aerosols.
How does the Verifi bed bug detector work?
The Verifi bed bug detector features three attractants to lure bed bugs over both short and long periods of time. These attractants include the Verifi CO2 booster pack, which mimics a living, breathing host for approximately 24 hours through an exclusive chemical reaction—no batteries or other power sources required. The Verifi lure features two additional attractants, a kairomone that works to attract bed bugs seeking a meal, and a pheromone that works on bed bugs’ natural desire to gather together, both of which are continuously and uniformly emitted for up to 90 days.
Verifi is unique in the way that it segregates attractants to prevent bed bug confusion. The CO2 and kairomone lures are vented to draw host-seeking bed bugs to the pitfall where they become trapped and cannot escape detection. The pheromone is vented so that aggregation-seeking bed bugs are drawn to the harborage area of the device. Pest professionals can then inspect the device one to seven days after placement for an initial reading, as well as up to 90 days later, thus ensuring no new infestations have occurred and/or that treaent was successful.
How do I use the Verifi bed bug detector?
A pest management professional simply activates the Verifi CO2 booster pack and inserts it, along with the Verifi lure, into the Verifi core. The Verifi core then slides into the Verifi holster which features a self-adhesive sticker. The pest professional removes the backing and sticks it vertically to any flat surface (walls, headboard, furniture, etc.). Pest professionals then return within one to seven days to inspect the device and determine if treaent is necessary. The Verifi CO2 booster pack can be replaced at any time for another 24-hour burst of carbon dioxide, and the Verifi lure should be replaced every 90 days or sooner, depending on service agreements with customers.
How is the Verifi bed bug detector different than what’s on the market?
The Verifi bed bug detector offers many benefits over current detection methods, including:
- Discreet, small and easy-to-use. With the Verifi bed bug detector, the potential for human error due to subjectivity is minimized. And unlike canine detection, Verifi does not allow for false positives (indicating an infestation is present when there are no bed bugs). In addition, the discrete device means that rooms can remain in service while detection takes place.
- Cost-effective and revenue-generating. Verifi does not require a large financial or time invesent. It can be assembled, installed and serviced by one person. Verifi eliminates the need to disassemble and reassemble rooms, minimizing the labor and fatigue associated with visual inspections. This enables professionals to service more accounts each day, so you can grow your client base.
- 90 days of detection. The replaceable Verifi lure continues to attract bed bugs for up to 90 days. This creates new service opportunities and helps open up a whole new revenue stream for your business.
- Comprehensive. Because it attracts both host-seeking and aggregation-seeking bed bugs without causing confusion, Verifi casts a very wide net—influencing all stages of bed bug instars. This enables Verifi to successfully detect very low levels of infestation, which is critical to managing a bed bug population in the earliest possible stages.
Where can the Verifi bed bug detector be used? The Verifi bed bug detector can be installed on walls, on headboards, or behind furniture for discrete detection in homes, aparents, hotels, hospitals, group housing, office buildings and more.
How many devices should be used per room?
FMC recommends placing four detectors in the room with the suspected infestation as well as adjacent rooms—two near the head of the bed, one near the foot of the bed and a fourth on or near other frequently used furniture. Because the device is unobtrusive and operates silently, there is no need to take hotel rooms, offices or retail locations out of service during detection.
What do I do if the device finds bugs?
Once a pest management professional establishes that an infestation is present, FMC recommends an integrated treaent approach to target bed bugs in their many hiding places.
- Transport Mikron insecticide for indoor crack, crevice and baseboard treaents
- Talstar insecticide, an aerosol formulation for residual protection in cracks and crevices
- CB-40 insecticide for mattresses, box springs and upholstered furniture
- Cynoff insecticide dust for areas where liquid insecticides aren’t appropriate, like wall voids, around electrical outlets, switch plates and lighting fixtures.
Bed bugs found in and around the device can be treated with CB-40. The Verifi bed bug detector should be free of bed bugs and cleaned with a cloth when it is returned to service following inspection.
Following treaent, the Verifi bed bug detector can also be used to determine if your treaent approach has been successful.
What if the device does not find bugs?
Even if there are no eggs, nymphs or adults found upon the first inspection (within seven days), pest management professionals and their customers can feel secure knowing that a device is providing ongoing detection.
Is the Verifi bed bug detector a registered by the EPA?
Because the Verifi bed bug detector only detects and is not intended to control bed bugs, it is not a pesticide and therefore does not require EPA.

This is not about the efficacy of that specific detector, but about the quality of service that I received. Not being in the bed-bug business myself, I just wanted to order an extra detector like the one installed in our home by the heat treatment co. Having ordered the FMC Verifi Bed Bug Detector with a couple of extra lures, I could not use it because the "Lure Activation Tool" was not initially shipped. Upon contacting DoMyOwnPestControl.com customer service and insisting over the phone that this Lure Activation Tool is essential for starting using the product and that it is listed as required tool in the included instructions, the Tool was shipped to me for free. Now I can use the product. Thanks guys.

Not very good. I have a Night Watch unit and this, in the same room. The Night Watch had 20 or so bugs in the first night. This unit had 2. Been using for a week now and this unit is a waste of money! The NightWatch cost alot more but worth it.
We would not recommend using both the Nightwatch and the FMC Verifi in the same room, as these units may be competing with each other. Your Nightwatch also may be placed closer to the bed bug population than the FMC unit, hence the higher catch.

QHow would this work in an office setting with high workstation walls and a 100,000 sf floor plate?
How many and where would be needed etc?
AIf you currently have bed bugs, we recommend treating them. For information in regards to where to place and how many detectors we recommend contacting FMC 800-321-1362 to advise you.

QWhat can you see in the bed bug detector and how?
AThe FMC Verifi Bed Bug Detector allows you to see the Bed Bugs that have been trapped in the pitfall at the top of the detector. Once the Bed Bugs enter the pitfall, they are unable to escape. It is also possible to see bedbugs on the harborage area on the detector that is located at the top on the back. If you have any further questions, please call us at 866-581-7378.

QWill FMC Verifi Bed Bug Detector no seeums?
trying to verify that's what I have
AFMC Verifi Bed Bug Detector is labeled to trap bed bugs only. If you are wanting to find out what pest you have, we would recommend getting a pest control company to come out and identify the pest. You could also contact your local cooperative extension office if you have a sample of them.

QDo you have the brackets available that screw into the wall rather than with the adhesive?
I saw the screw-mounted units at the bed bug summit in Denver. The adhesive is rough on drywall!
AThe FMC Verifi Bed Bug Detector comes with the adhesive backing. We do not currently carry brackets for the product. Please contact the manufacturer FMC 800.321.1362.
