    Hi,

    Experience tells us to install here:

    Given our time working with residential care facilities I can confirm they can be issues because of the number of crevices and the electrical elements of the seat but putting Passives in place before you get bedbugs negates a lot of that.

    Hope that helps.

    David, are you saying the passive monitor might not work as well for an active infestation? Been trying to figure out what's biting my family for the past 2 months ... nothing found in the beds, so trying to ID if there's a problem in this couch. I installed the passive monitor as instructed...

    Hi,

    Not at all, we use Passive Monitors to QC and QA our treatments.

    If you have had it installed for 14 days and it’s all clear it’s not bedbugs.

    David
