See what top bed bug experts who worked with the Verifi® bed bug detector had to say about how they believe it will impact the industry.

“An ongoing monitoring program with the Verifi® bed bug detector could find infested locations and then recommend treatment before the infestation is completely out of control.”

“The best way to use a device like Verifi is to have an ongoing monitoring program for a facility. PMPs dealing with these apartments would put these out and be able to detect early infestations before they become very heavy infestations that spread through the entire complex.” 
            - Dr. Phil Koehler, professor of urban entomology, University of Florida

 “The Verifi® bed bug detector is very robust - It will pull in bed bugs from a distance. There’s a huge market for a device like this in multi-unit apartments, where there’s one complaint and everyone thinks they have bed bugs. This way, you can cross off those who don’t have them and take care of the rooms which do.” 
             - Dr. Vernard Lewis, urban entomologist, University of California – Berkeley

 “The Verifi® bed bug detector can be left in place long-term. It is small and unobtrusive. I would think a lot of apartment complexes would want to put them in every room.”  
            - Dr. Susan Jones, associate professor of entomology – The Ohio State University

“I can see pest management professionals placing Verifi® bed bug detector units in every room of multi-unit housing or hotels within the next year.”
