Bed bug detection can be a difficult task for the average person and even pest professionals. Thanks to Bed Bug Blue™, we can eliminate the guesswork. No more arguing with your landlord or being scammed by the exterminator, Bed Bug Blue™ quickly and accurately identifies the presence of bed bug within minutes.
How does it work?
One of the easiest ways to detect the presence of bed bugs is through fecal staining or bed bug poop. Since bed bugs only feed on blood, they’re fecal matter is essentially a digested form of blood. Although it sounds obvious, fecal spots are difficult to confirm whether they’re from bedbugs or not, and this is why Bed Bug Blue™ is so effective. These stains are little black dots that can be found in many places i.e. the baseboards, bedside tables and in most cases, the mattresses and box springs. Simply swab the suspicious stains and test the on the Bed Bug Blue™ detection tape. If the tape turns blue after a minute, then the spots you swabbed are from bed bugs.
Bed Bug Blue™ is convenient and can be easily carried in your luggage while traveling for quick inspection of suspicious spot. It can be used for:
- Students in dorms or apartments
- Travellers who find suspicious spots in hotel rooms
- Business owners to reassure staff who are concerned about potential fecal spots

Note: Bed Bug Blue™ uses a proprietary developer fluid and tape to turn blue at the presence of bed bugs. In general, this test is detecting the presence of blood in the fecal spotting. In order to avoid false positive results, we recommend understanding the look and general properties of bed bug fecal spotting in order to avoid testing fecal spots from other insects that do not meet the general characteristics of bed bug spotting. Bed bug fecal spots appear like mold spots when in clusters and are generally black or very dark brown. They will smear like charcoal and retain their dark color when using a cotton swab.
