Susan McKnight, Inc.

Susan McKnight, Inc., located in Memphis, Tennessee, has developed, manufactures and sells ClimbUp® insect interceptors for the detection and management of bed bug infestations. Made in USA of ecologically-friendly materials, ClimbUp® is a plastic double well cup with slick, talc-coated interior and fiber-coated exterior that can be maintained to be re-used for years. Placed under bed legs where people are sleeping, ClimbUp® acts as a barrier, providing bite and anxiety relief, as well as a monitoring trap by capturing bed bugs approaching the bed in the outer well. All bed bug life stages are clearly visible in capture wells. ClimbUp® has been proven to be more reliable than visual inspections, canine inspections or resident awareness for detecting bed bug infestations.
