Abstract A trap for the collection of bedbugs, Cimex lectularius Linnaeus (Hemiptera: Cimicidae), is described. The trap was baited with CO2 (50–400 mL/min), heat (37.2–42.2 °C) and a chemical lure comprised of 33.0 μg proprionic acid, 0.33 μg butyric acid, 0.33 μg valeric acid, 100 μg octenol and 100 μg L‐lactic acid, impregnated into a gel. Laboratory studies, conducted in a square arena measuring 183 cm on each side, showed that traps with and without baits captured adult bedbugs, but traps… Expand
Bed Bug (Heteroptera: Cimicidae) Attraction to Pitfall Traps Baited with Carbon Dioxide, Heat, and Chemical Lure
TLDR
It is concluded that baited pitfall traps are potentially effective tools for evaluating bed bug control programs and detecting early bed bug infestations. Expand
Interactions among Carbon Dioxide, Heat, and Chemical Lures in Attracting the Bed Bug, Cimex lectularius L. (Hemiptera: Cimicidae)
TLDR
A combination of chemical lure and CO2 is essential for designing effective bed bug monitors and the interactions among chemical lure, CO2, and heat are evaluated. Expand
Desiccant dust and the use of CO2 gas as a mobility stimulant for bed bugs: a potential control solution?
TLDR
This study showed that application of desiccant dust in combination with release of CO2 gas to mimic human presence is a promising option for bed bug control. Expand
Volatile compounds from Liposcelis bostrychophila (Psocoptera: Liposcelididae) and their environment and their effects on settling behaviour
TLDR
Bioassays showed that hexanoic acid was the most repellent chemical and mixtures of compounds representing the proportions of HA, BA, IBA, and HB in the volatiles did not have any prolonged effect on settling or selection by booklice in a two choice bioassay. Expand
Relatively Small Quantities of CO2, Ammonium Bicarbonate, and a Blend of (E)-2-Hexenal Plus (E)-2-Octenal Attract Bed Bugs (Hemiptera: Cimicidae)
TLDR
Carbon dioxide released alone or simultaneously with other attractants into three types of traps at the relatively low rate of 1 ml/min caught significantly more bed bugs than untreated controls in a 183- by 183-cm arena, which may enable CO2 to be used more economically in traps. Expand
Semiochemicals of the common bed bug, Cimex lectularius L. (Hemiptera: Cimicidae), and their potential for use in monitoring and control.
TLDR
The aim of this review was to evaluate studies undertaken in bed bug chemical ecology to date, with particular reference to how the research could be exploited for monitoring and control. Expand
Behavioral Response of the Tropical Bed Bug, Cimex hemipterus (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) to Carbon Dioxide
  • Jingsheng Zhang, Qiling Liang, +5 authors Desen Wang

TLDR
C. hemipterus are attracted to CO2, and both antennae and mouthparts are important for CO2 perception, according to host-derived olfactory cues. Expand
The Role of Antennae in Heat Detection and Feeding Behavior in the Bed Bug (Hemiptera: Cimicidae)
TLDR
It is found that the distal tip of the terminal antennal segment is responsible for orientation toward a heat source, suggesting redundancy in sensory cues that drive feeding in bed bugs. Expand
Bed Bug (Cimex lectularius L.) Population Composition as Determined by Baited Traps
TLDR
Two established field populations of bed bugs were sampled using host-mimicking traps baited with a combination of CO2, heat and a synthetic kairomone, finding that multiple nights of trapping may be required to obtain an accurate representation of population structure. Expand
THE CHEMICAL ECOLOGY OF BED BUGS ( CIMEX LECTULARIUS , L.) AND THE IMPACT OF A NEUROTOXIC INSECTICIDE ON PHYSIOLOGY AND BEHAVIOR
TLDR
Results demonstrate that alternative management strategies disrupting motheroffspring interactions are possible for bed bug control and suggest that bed bug behavior, especially in response to insecticide treatment, should also be thoroughly evaluated to enhance conventional control practices for C. lectularius in the field.

Studies in Tropisms of the Bed Bug Cimex lectularius L.
TLDR
The tendency to be in contact with an object, rather than the negative reaction to light, underlies the gregarious habit of the bed bugs as well as their search for places of retreat. Expand
The physiology and activity of the bed-bug ( Cimex lectularius L.) in a natural infestation
TLDR
A natural infestation of bed-bugs which has existed for several years in an animal room has been studied and it appears that few adults live more than 29 days as they are probably killed by the rats when trying to feed. Expand

The response of the blood-sucking bug Triatoma infestans to carbon dioxide and other host odours.
TLDR
Behavioural responses of Triatoma infestans larvae to carbon dioxide and other odours of vertebrate origin were investigated in a locomotion compensator and a marked synergism was evident when L-lactic acid was combined with a sub-threshold concentration of carbon dioxide. Expand

TLDR
In 1934 a committee on the eradication of bed-bugs appointed by the Minister of Health issued its report, in which recommendations for research into the biology of Cimex lectularius L. were made. Expand

One-octen-3-ol and CO2 acted synergistically in attracting significantly greater numbers of Aedes taeniorhynchus, Anopheles spp. Expand
Differential responses of Aedes and Culex mosquitoes to octenol or light in combination with carbon dioxide in Queensland, Australia
TLDR
Field studies were conducted with EVS (encephalitis vector surveillance) traps in south‐eastern Queensland, Australia, to determine the relative response rates of mosquitoes to three levels of 1‐octen‐3‐ol (octenol) in combination with a standard bait, compared with CO2 alone or CO2 with light from a 6V incandescent bulb.

Strain differences in the response of German cockroaches (Dictyoptera: Blattellidae) to emulsifiable concentrates.
TLDR
Dried formulations of Dursban LO and XRM 5184 had little, if any, repellency to nymphs of either the susceptible or resistant strains, and neither chlorpyrifos formulation flushed cockroaches effectively. Expand
Biology of the bed bugs (Cimicidae).
TLDR
A dual goal in re-examining the extensive literature on this group is to identify issues relevant to pest control, such as dispersal ecology and the recent global spread, and to understand the selective forces that have shaped the unique aspects of this insect's biology. Expand
Insecticide Resistance in the Bed Bug: A Factor in the Pest’s Sudden Resurgence?
TLDR
Evaluations of populations from across the United States indicate that resistance to pyrethroid insecticides is already widespread, and without the development of new tactics for bed bug management, further escalation of this public health problem should be expected. Expand
