Do you feel as though you’re not quite alone in a room when no one else is there? You could be right. With the advent of micro technology, came the advent of tiny bugs and you can have one or more in your home and never know it. Protect yourself with a bug detector.
A bug is simply a device that transmits audio or a combination of audio and video to the person that put the device in your home or business. Once upon a time, most bugs had to be by telephones or walls because they had to be hardwired into the electrical system of the house. With wireless technology, a bug can literally be anywhere in your home. The reasons for doing this can be many but most of them are not legal. Are you involved in a divorce? It could be your spouse or an interested party for your soon-to-be-ex is bugging your premises to get something on you or just eavesdrop and find out what your plans are. Sometimes business partners are bugging you, or it could be someone (usually an ex that can’t let go) with an obsession about you.
There are ways to detect bugs in your vicinity, first is with a signal monitor. Bugs obviously transmit information so they will emit a small, signal undetectable to the ear. However a bug detector will hear that signal loud and clear. As you get closer to the source of the emission, the bug detector will let you know so you can narrow down in your room where the little critter has been put. Under chairs, couches, inside plastic housings of phones, inside lamps, ceiling fixtures, potted plants and drilled into the wooden legs of chairs are all favorite hiding spots for bugs.
The other type of bug detector works by looking for activity on frequency levels around your home. Again as a bug transmits, it needs a frequency to communicate with. As you look around your home with the detector, you will see a frequency giving off an emission and this could very possibly be a bug. Use the monitor on your bug detector screen and follow it to its source.
How you want to handle finding a bug is up to you. Photograph it and get all the information you can and then call the authorities. Someone may have a lot of explaining to do to you.
