    I have a question on the passive monitors please. Can you use two together in relative proximity or would that impede their function?

    Regarding placement on a reclining sofa that has the pop up foot rests: Mr. Cain, you have previously answered where the monitor should be placed on such a sofa (on the foot rest part, where the knees would be when closed). However, my question is, would it be ok to also put one underneath the seat section of the sofa? Now, you may ask why would anyone want to put one there too . . .. My thoughts were that the sofa has so many folds, crevices and hiding spots that it takes forever to inspect. If I gave "them" idea harborage locations, they would definitely go to one or the other.

    So, my question is, will putting two monitors that relatively close together "impede" their functionality or hopfully, just give them more options and, therefore, easier detection?

    Hi,

    No there is no impeding from having two Passive Monitors close together, not even if they were touching.

    Its the physical characteristics of the product that induce the faecal trace deposition not the chemical ecology of it.

    Hope that explains.

    Great. Now I think I'll go purchase 50 more and "wallpaper" my bed and couch with them. I'll just tell my friends it's "bed bug detection art deco."
