Bedbugs can be a serious concern, particularly to East Coast urban dwellers. The new trap will be made from an inverted pet bowl with the outer edges covered in double-sided black tape. The inverted bowl will have higher walls than other traps on the market, and the bait (spearmint and coriander oil) will be augmented with CO2 canisters, sugar and yeast, which will produce the bedbug attractant carbon dioxide.
Although the trap will not kill the bed bugs, it will serve as an early detection device.
