Be advised when using ClimbUp Insect Interceptor
By Fran on 08/20/2010
Just began using this product. Unfortunately some of the bedbugs have managed to climb into the center well leaving access to the legs of my bed. I have taken the precaution of using Vaseline on the legs and side rails I have successfully trapped some of the bugs on the Vaseline.

Works as indicator
By Js on 08/11/2010
Instructions should say: remove each one from the BOTTOM of the stack, it's much easier. These were for my parents' apartment in NYC, which had already been treated. We put them under chair and sofa legs in the living room, and under wheels of the bed frame in the bedroom. None appeared in the ones under the bed, but we got a few in the OUTER ring of traps in the living room. That was a surprise to us. Made us look hard, we found a place that had them and had not been treated first time (a fabric seat on a kitchen chair - which we promptly discarded) and had the exterminator back the next day to re-treat, this time including the remaining kitchen chairs. So, they served their purpose as indicators, but as the instructions say they are NOT by themselves a control method. In this case, going from kitchen to bedroom could bring bugs to the bed (which were in barrier covers) despite the interceptors under the bed wheels.

Good results in lab tests, will follow up with field results
By Enrique on 11/20/2009
Four stars strictly for idea- just ordered and read some studies on using this Climb Up Insect Inspector. Primarily a monitoring tool/probably won't eliminate bed bugs but gives you an idea of where they are residing and if they are still active following treatment. Inexpensive, and can be used with Diatomaceous Earth to trap bug coming from the bed (may trap bugs in mattress.) Use a mattress cover too and spend the money on a decent one with locking zipper. Eggs must be treated with steam or chemicals or dusts. Good luck.

Climbup Insect Interceptor
By William on 10/17/2011
Yes they work. I am using Baby Powder in them. They are catching the bugs. They can't get out of the Traps. I am using 3 inch PVC End Caps that you can get at ACE or any Hardware Store to place in the center. This adds more protection and gives the legs something to set in.

Climb-ups are a major tool in bed bug control. I have a bed bug company and use climb ups on every job. If you have a large bed post it will be to big for the climb up. Metal bed frames work very well, check dimensions.

A little spendy
By Brian on 10/31/2012
...and I can't really even prove they work. I went with the nuclear option and sprayed everything and tossed box springs, so I haven't trapped any bugs. Still, it seems reasonable they would work. Our infestation (based on horror stories and photos from the web) was mild and caught in it's infancy, so I'm hoping I've crushed the little buggers outright with chemical measures. That said, the peace of mind of the traps is worth it. DON'T FORGET LARGER BEDS HAVE CENTER SUPPORTS. YOU'LL NEED 6 PER BED, not just the 4 corners.

ClimbUp Insect Interceptor
By Diana on 03/31/2012
The product was received quickily, but should have been mailed in a confidential manner based on what the product was and not in a box indicating the name of the product. Because of this I would prefer to purchase such an item as this from a company that keeps what customers order confidential. I believe it would also increase your sales if you indicated that all products such as these would be mailed in a confidential manner. Thank you.

Worked well except cracked on carpeted floor
By Jerry on 12/28/2011
We bought Climbup interceptors for three beds at our house as part of our bed bug remediation strategy. They have worked properly on the one bed that is on a hardwood floor, but the interceptors cracked when used on carpeted floors. I searched online and found out this is a common problem. I made a set of plywood "coasters" to go under the interceptors which fixed the problem.

Concerned about the plastic strength
By Shane on 01/29/2011
I returned this product because I was concerned about the strength of the plastic. I have a heavy metal bed frame with narrow legs. I was concerned it would crack the plastic interceptors. My fall-back position was to put double-sided tape around the bed legs. When the tape was no longer sticky, I put Vaseline on the tape.

An added step worth the cost
By George on 09/04/2011
Good product does trap bedbugs just wish the were more resilient to weight on the bed. Ours cracked and we were able to beef up the bases with structural tape and all is good. They do trap bugs and that's the main thing. Made in USA is a good thing, too.

Got the b*st*rds!
By Ed on 02/26/2013
The product worked quite well! The little pests are getting stuck in the interceptors and are dying off!

Peace of Mind
By Pru on 06/19/2012
I put felt pads on the bottoms of my metal bedposts to help prevent cracking - seems to be working so far. I think the best thing about this product is the peace of mind one gets. I've not trapped any bedbugs (but many other bugs), so I feel fairly confident that I am rid of them. I also bought the mattress/box spring/pillow protectors, so by using these I am much more comfortable with the situation. I plan to keep the traps on the bedposts, because I travel a fair amount. Will be super cautious now in hotels, bought the luggage liner as well. TAKE PRECAUTIONS!!

Exactly as expected, fast service, as advertised product. Interesting that "grandma" used to have these in glass "back in the old days" these were standard for all homes, only in glass.

ClimbUp Insect Interceptor
By Angie on 05/18/2016
Star rating is typing error So far nothing has shown up in the interceptors after two weeks of use - I sleep in the bed and have gotten two bites during the night - yet no sign of bedbugs in interceptors.. We are going to try dry ice next Do you have more advice -
The interceptors will only capture bedbugs if they are coming from other areas than the bed. We recommend you thoroughly treat the bed with appropriate products such as encaements, treat the frame and move the bed away from the walls. If the interceptors capture bedbugs capture bedbugs at this point you will know that the bedbugs are in other areas that also need to be treated. Please a few moments to read pour bedbug guide to learn more about this treatment: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/how-to-check-for-bed-bugs-a-450.html

I put these down as instructed 2 weeks ago and so far nothing. However, I am still being bitten. My bed is away from the wall and nothing is hanging to the floor. My bed is only on a frame no head or foot board. I'm not to happy.
The ClimbUps are a passive trap designed to intercept bed bugs only. Please let us know if you need assistance identifying or treating bed bugs!

Monitoring bed bug population density
By Liz on 08/10/2016
My tenants keep beds & sofas against the walls & have lots of bedside clutter, so ClimbUps are empty in spite of active bed bug infestation.

Inexpensive, highly effective way to monitor for Bed Bugs. Great for positive ID to determine if treatment is needed, and great for verifying treatment worked. They'll probably even keep the ones not in the bed yet, off of you.
