Will the Bedbug Beacon let me know if I have bed bugs?

I am not sure if I have bed bugs. I have not yet been bit, but I have found two very small black things on my mattress that may have been bugs. If I place the monitor in my bedroom and I do have bedbugs, will I see them dead in it?


The Bedbug Beacon Monitor works best in unoccupied rooms. The Bedbug Beacon Monitor will attract bedbugs that are ready to feed by omitting CO2. The insects will then crawl into the trap and fall into the "pit". Falling into the pit will not actually kill the bugs. If you are not sure if your home is infested and it is occupied you may want to consider having a professional pest control operator inspect the rooms that you suspect may have bedbugs.
