About Us

  • Your round pet bed has gone through some extensive testing by my pet dog, Zoe, who is with me in the office today, and I’m happy to report that she gives it her highest ratings.

  • "We here at the Pest Doctor heard of a newer style of bed bug protection by 1st Defence Industries and we knew that we had to try them. We have found that their rectangular shape fits better into corners than the circular models. Our clients love that the adhesive is covered because allows the trap to be more effective and it lasts longer."

  • “Our experience with Randall at 1st Defence has exceeded all of our expectations. They truly went above and beyond to help us with our pest problem, taking the time to help us set up traps, thoroughly explaining how to use them, giving demos, and providing much needed (and appreciated) advice. These guys are fantastic, they provide marvelous service and I would highly recommend them to anyone.”

1st Defence Industries is 100% Canadian Owned and Operated

Based in British Columbia with manufacturing facilities in Ottawa, Ontario, 1st Defence Industries is 100% Canadian owned and operated. Our unique Bug Coaster design is a high-strength, non-toxic product that will help control the spread of crawling pests without the use of pesticides or poisons.

Simply place the Bug Coasters under the legs of your bed, couch, table, plant container or shelving, and this revolutionary new design will trap crawling pests as they crawl through the device. The coaster makes it easy for the crawling pests to enter, but uses a combination of steep, slippery surfaces and an adhesive pad to make sure they can’t get out. The bug coasters are attractive, unobtrusive and pesticide-free. Checking them is easy and doesn’t require you to move furniture.

Our Bug Coasters come in a variety of sizes and shapes to suit a range of household, recreational, agricultural and hospitality industry applications. We also offer a tray for bait and attractants that is perfect for professionals. These products have been proven effective in detecting and protecting against most crawling pests, including bedbugs, ticks, spiders, spider mites, vine weevils, ants and scorpions.

Whether you’re a professional grower who needs to protect your investment, a hotel that wants to detect crawling insects before they become a problem, or a family looking to prevent bedbugs and ticks from accessing your children or pets, look no further than the Original Bug Coaster.
