    We're going to be moving from one NYC apartment to another NYC apartment. The lease at the new place will start 15 days before the lease at the old place is up. After reading the FAQs and threads, am I right in thinking that a sensible course of action would be to install an active monitor in the new apartment while it's still empty, then after a week or so switch to passive monitors as we move the bed and other furniture in?

    Hi,

    In a nutshell yeah that is the best approach. The only way of improving upon it as a plan is to take bedbug blue with you when you set up the active monitors to test and suspect faecal marks that you find.

    I would run the active for 6 or 7 days and then asses the situation.

    I have not specifically said which active and which passive but I think that is rather clear from my posting history which of the options I would suggest.

    Hope that helps.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC (legal requirements) I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. 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. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about products.

    Our FAQ on bed bug monitors may also help if you're looking at options.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Thanks for the advice. We're trying to be vigilant without going overly paranoid or spending a billion bucks.
