ABOUT DELTA FIVE

Delta Five is innovating hospitality, as well as property- and pest-management, with automated technologies that enhance guest/resident satisfaction, while boosting business profits and reputation.

We strive to improve five key areas: guest/resident experience, cleanliness, performance, materials handling and service. Our goal is to ensure success through the development of innovative, automated solutions.

OUR DEVICE

UTILITY

Our devices provide early detection of pests including insects, rodents, vermin, and reptiles.

MINIMIZE TREATMENTS

By catching pests early, and knowing when and where they are found, treatments can be implemented before an infestation occurs.

REDUCE COSTS & LOGISTICS

Our device quickly pays for itself:

  • Bed Bugs: Save $77 – $115 per bed annually
  • Stored Product Insects: Save $1,825 a year per trap
  • Vertebrates: Save $7,300 dollars a year per trap

AUTOMATE CAPTURE

Chambers close when our device sends an alert to the authorized personnel (owner, managers, housekeeping, engineering, and pest control).

ENSURE DISCRETION

  • Catch pests before they are noticed
  • Place in hidden areas

DEVICE FEATURES

DETECT PESTS BEFORE THEY ATTACK YOUR GUESTS

DELTA FIVE BED BUG RESEARCH

BEHAVIORS

~30% will seek to climb, ~40% will seek a corner or crevice, and ~30% will brave an open floor. Most bed bugs will follow an edge to the head of a bed.

CHARACTERISTICS

Bed bugs must generally be within 1 meter (39 inches) to perceive lures, be they aggregative pheromones from other bed bugs, heat or human breath and scents.

DETERRENTS

Intractable, tacky, and sticky surfaces often hinder passage of bed bugs.

LURES

The best known lures are comprised of small crevice-like spaces, warmth, naturally-occurring scents from harborages, and blood meal sources.

LOCATION

Bed bug infestations are found between the mattress and the wall or headboard 96% of the time.

ALERTS ON THE GO

Immediately upon detecting a pest, your device will alert you in real-time via email, text and the Delta Five Dashboard.

Your alert provides you with an image of the detected pest, as well as where and when the pest was detected.

Your alert can also be set to coincide with the device closing the door of the pest-occupied chamber, entrapping the detected pest for convenient removal.
