    Hello!

    I am so very excited to say that, after 6-7 weeks, I think I can FINALLY get myself a couple Passive Monitors

    I see they're good for one year, with monthly (or more) checking, and when a fortnight goes by with no evidence, that's the all clear.

    My question is this.... let's say I put them on the beds, and the all clear comes and goes, and a few months are clear... then, suddenly, its March and I see fecal marks. Do I then need to remove and replace them, or begin treatment and just mark which fecal spots were already there so I'll know which are new? I'm trying to decide how many I should purchase- I have 3 beds and a chair that were problematic, so I'll need 4 of them for sure, and our new couch will be here soon, and I'll need one there, so 5 total... but would a dozen or so be better? Or can I get by with just the 6 pack?

    I am, by no means, a pro. I'm simply a person that has had unfortunate luck, and somehow acquired the little guys.
    Any/all 'advice' I have to share is based on my own personal history and/or things I've read from the professionals on this site.

    Hi,

    Thanks, to give the specific reason have a good look at the image below:

    Slide2 by David Cain, on Flickr

    Egg laying is transferred to inside the monitor meaning that removal of a tripped monitor breaks the life cycle of the infestation. This simple step is how our hotel clients are so effective in controlling the issue and why our customers only need our service the once if they follow our best practice.

    Hope that explains.

Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding.
