PCT article and request for feedback on use of bed bug traps

Check out the PCT magazine version of the bedbug research I posted about last month from Rutgers University. One nice thing about this version of the article is that it shows pictures of the bed bug interceptor traps in use.  To my knowledge this is the first reported successful use of unbaited Climbup® interceptor traps being used to monitor bed bugs.

Understanding Bed Bug Infestation And Dispersal Patterns

I'm curious how many of you have used these types of traps and whether and how well they have worked for you.  If you have experience with monitoring/inspecting for bed bugs, would you consider answering a few questions about your experience? If so, click here to go to a brief Survey Money questionnaire. I will publish results shortly.
