How is the Bed Bug Band different than double sided adhesive tape?

Unlike double sided tape, the Bed Bug Band will not leave a residue on your sheets and has the correct amount of adhesive required to capture bed bugs. The Bed Bug Band contains perforations to remove captured bed bugs without removing the band, making it acceptable for extended use over a period of days.
Does it kill the bugs?
The Bed Bug Band™ and the Travel Band contain no insecticides. Both products detect and capture bed bugs to alert you of their presence and to prevent you from being bitten.

The Travel Band should be disposed of if bed bugs are captured.
