    Hi there,
    I need some help indentifying if this is a cast skin? Should there be legs cast as well? It almost looks like a scab or something.
    And is this placement okay for the passive monitor? On the top and center of the box spring.
    How do I know after how long of no activity on the monitor that I’m “in the clear,” so to speak?
    Thank you.

    Link doesn't work, but from your description it doesn't sound like anything bed bug related. Cast skins look like bed bugs, just papery and thin.

    Hi,

    Placement correct.

    Out of focus but looks more like a carpet beetle larva than anything bedbug.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you two.
    How long after the passive monitor has been free of activity are you likely in the clear?

    Hi,

    That is a common question, as such the "search box" would be the first place to ask.

    As written thousands of times already and provided int he instructions for the product 7 days is a good sign and 14 days is the all clear so long as the bed is not isolated.
