How to Properly Use CimexTraps
To correctly use CimexTraps, the bed, sofa or loveseat being “trapped” must become an “island”. This means that the bed, sofa, bedframe or headboard cannot touch the walls. All bedding, including pillows, must be completely on the piece of furniture at all times.
The only way for the bug to get onto the furniture MUST be from the legs which need to be securely inserted into the Traps. Place the legs of the furniture properly into the traps. If the headboard has separate legs, then they must be trapped also. When the bug attempts to get onto the furniture it will get caught in the trap.
For Beds – Place all legs of the bed in the center of the traps.
If you are trapping a recliner, place the rails in the slot portion of the trap to evenly support the chair.
If trapping a box frame or long rail, use additional traps in the middle of each side to support the centers.
If the legs of the piece of furniture are too large to fit into the center of the trap, place the leg squarely on the raised top of the trap.
You MUST create an island
All bedding must be off the floor and away from the wall so that the only way the bug can get onto the bed is by going through the traps.
How To Assemble and Clean Your CimexTraps
Place and attach the two adhesive grip strips to the top of each trap.
Attach the slider by lining up the tabs on the top of the slider to the notches on the bottom of the trap. Snap together.
Clean CimexTrap with a microfiber cloth as needed to keep dust out of the trap well. Use only a microfiber cloth to prevent scratching the polished well.
