    So I just ordered a 6 pack of BB Alert Passive Monitors and I had a question on the proper placement given my current situation.

    I currently have a metal bed frame similar to this item:

    I know the frame is not ideal, but I had it before the infestation, and I am moving in with my girlfriend in April so I don't want to necessarily invest in a new bed quite yet. I just want to survive the remainder of my current lease with the items I do have left.

    My questions are the following:

    Where would optimal placement of the passive monitor be if the bed was pushed into the corner of the bedroom?

    Would it be on the wall near my head just below frame level?

    Any help here would be appreciated (particularly from Mr. Cain).

    Note: The bed bugs were previously infesting the long side of my mattress along the wall, and the inside of my pillows.

    Second Note: I do not have a box spring since the frame does not require it, and my mattress is encased.

    Thanks everyone.

    Can any one provide a suggestion to the above? I looked through the Flickr page of David Cain and previous threads but could not come up with a placement strategy from those resources.

    Hi,

    Is the mattress placed on this riser frame or is there a box base component.

    Either way its not too dissimilar to the placement for a metal framed bed like this:

    Hope that clarifies.

    Hi David,

    Thanks for the response, I really do appreciate it.

    The encased mattress is placed directly on the metal frame (i.e. there is no box base component).

    Once I put the passive monitor in place, I'll upload another picture to make sure it's placement is correct.
