"Our biggest problem was guests finding bugs and the implications that came with it such as the threat of negative social media reviews and financial repercussions. The Delta Five traps provide us the opportunity to find pests before the guest does, and by drastically reducing the chances of a guest-pest encounter, it solved one of our biggest problems." - General Manager of a Casino Hotel   "There wasn’t much of a solution [for bed bugs] before this… but now when talking to a guest who might be worried about pests, I feel comfortable telling them about this solution because it’s so innovative." - General Manager of IHG hotel, Tennessee   "My experience with Delta Five has been great, it gives us peace of mind because we are able to find all kinds of bugs before the guest does." - General Manager of Hampton Inn and Suites, North Carolina    "If there is an issue reported and I have a Delta Five device in [the room], there’s a feeling of security." - General Manager of IHG hotel, Tennessee   "Knowing these Delta Five devices are in our hotel rooms gives me a lot more peace of mind because I can offer a hotel room with a high level of confidence that there is not a bed bug in there." – President of Hotel Management Company and Franchise Partner   "There was a time when we were only being reactionary because we had guest reports of pests on a weekly basis. Now, having the Delta Five device allows us to be proactive and that’s efficiency in itself. Now, we take can take care of the problem before the guest finds them." – General Manager of a Casino Hotel   "It used to be that if there was a bed bug it caused a nuclear reaction where we had to treat the room and a lot of those around it, which could cost up to 4 or 5 thousand dollars. However, now with the Delta Five device, we have more details [about the pest] and having that knowledge allows us to be more confident and targeted in our treatment approach." –President of Hotel Management Company and Franchise Partner   "If we have a problem, it’s dealt with very quickly and very efficiently by the Delta Five team." – General Manager of a Casino Hotel   "The responsiveness and level of service we have received from Delta Five Systems has been great.

It is really well done." – General Manager of Hampton Inn and Suites, North Carolina

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.
