    My apologies for over posting-

    I've been using passive monitors for a few years. They have been all clear. Saw "bug" on me on couch several weeks ago. Monitors were still clear. Put new ones on because I'm paranoid. Still clear.

    I travel every weekend almost and am out of my apartment 2-3 nights in a row. Should I be using an active monitor on those nights? Would bugs still go to the passive monitors the nights I'm home? I'm wondering if I've been doing things wrong for all this time. The bug sighting in my home really unnerved me

    If it doesn't truly impact anything, would the 7-14 day "clear" time still apply? Or would it be longer now.

    I always sleep for the night in my bed, but sometimes nap on the couch. If I stop napping there and just sit there, will the passive still work?

    Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to answer all my questions.
