Bed Bug Detective

Bed Bug Detective

Bed bugs are no joke, and are on the rise.  I am a bit of cootie-phobe and hate staying in hotels because I always wonder if they have bed bugs.  Not only do bed bugs feed on your blood and give you nasty bumps, they are hard to find and even harder to get rid of.

Chris Goggin, an inventor, has created a bed bug detector named the Bed Bug Detective.  The bed bug detector basically sniffs the air looking for pheromones released by bed bugs.  The Bed Bug Detective is so sensitive that it can detect concentrations as low as 200 parts per million.  Expect to see this bed bug detector for about $200.

    Beware of this fraud. Chris Goggin did not invent this bed bug detection device. The real bed bug detection device is the BBD-100 and you can purchase one if you look up ‘findbedbugsnow’ on the internet. Chris Goggin does not have his device patented or lab tested unlike the BBD-100. Contact Chris Goggin and ask him questions about his device and he will not have any patent info or lab testing info that is legitamate. He is a fraud and has stolen another inventors idea for his own personal gain.

    Third party test data is available for the Bed Bug Detective, send an e-mail to

    We have also tested the BBD-100 it appears to be a CO2 leak detector and it does not save any time or can identify Bed Bugs, third party test report(s) on that are available as well.

    So any word on when this product is going to be released? I travel a lot, and after running into bed bugs at a hotel a couple years ago I’m a bit paranoid about my travels. I always check for obvious bug signs now, but they’re not always easy to spot. Very interested in buying one of these detectors.
