Proven Crawling Insect Protection

Pests can pose real and serious threats to homes, horticultural operations, and personal safety & well-being while outdoors. We have developed a proprietary, pesticide-free, and cost-effective way to address these issues.

Our products are safe for children and animals, incredibly durable, and user-friendly. The discrete design of our custom-molded product eliminates unsightly insects once trapped. 1st Defense Bug Coasters stop all crawling insects in their tracks, providing an incredibly effective means of protecting furniture, children, product, and anything else susceptible to crawling insect contamination.

Commercial Growing

There are many insects that can negatively affect commercial growing operations; particularly vine beetles and mealybugs.  In using our proven protection method, our operators are able to mitigate the movement of pests from high-contamination areas such as floors, tables, and racks. By impeding the movement of these pets, operators can effectively, and safely protect their product without toxic chemicals.

Home & Outdoor


Our 4″ Bug Coaster is perfect for both home and leisure applications. By placing our coasters underneath bed, table, and nursery legs we can effectively prevent any chance of ticks, ants, scorpions, and spiders from climbing up to where we, our children, and our pets sleep.
Placing a Bug Coaster in a pantry, linen closet, or other susceptible areas will draw insects towards it, then trapping them within the coaster.



Bed bug encounters are rising terrifyingly fast all across the world. In North America alone, there are thousands of reports every year. Our discrete and customizable coasters will protect guests, and prevent any chance of outbreak through early detection. Simple installation below all points of contact with the floor is all that is necessary to protect beds, tables, chairs and couches.
