Instructions for just the Volcano Monitor and also for Volcano Monitor plus Activ Bed Bug Lures

Constructing SenSci Volcano

To construct a SenSci Volcano, remove a clear bottom from the box and identify the side with the textured square. Snap the side with the textured square into the black top. Make sure the textured square in the center of the clear bottom is inside the monitor once the bottom is snapped in (should be able to read “Made In USA” and recycling logo if looking at the bottom of the monitor once put together).

Constructing SenSci ActivVolcano

Open a SenSci Activ packet by following the directions on the Activ packaging. Center an open packet on the clear bottom of a SenSci Volcano (place packet on the side with the textured square). With the Activ packet in place, snap the bottom of the Volcano into the black top of the Volcano (being sure the textured square and packet are on the inside of the monitor). Make sure the Activ package is not pinched between the bottom and top of the Volcano.

Volcano or ActivVolcano Placement (see figures on attachment)

Bed bugs are known to travel along seams and edges. Bed bugs will follow baseboards in a room until they gain access to their host on a bed or couch. Therefore, to increase the chance of detecting bed bugs with a monitor, place monitors in areas of suspected travel such as corners of the room or along baseboards near sleeping areas. Monitors should also be placed next to legs of the bed or couch to increase your odds of detecting bed bugs. Place SenSci Volcano or ActivVolcano flat on any surface bed bugs are known or suspected to travel or hide. Possible locations include but are not limited to along the baseboard and next to bed and couch legs. Inspect the monitor periodically for the presence of bed bugs. If bed bugs are found, dispose of bugs by flushing down the toilet or disposing of them in a sealed bag in an outdoor trash can.

Activ Usage
Preliminary research suggests that SenSci Activ packets be replaced every 2-3 months for optimal results. In addition, one Activ package should detect bed bugs within 3-5 feet from where it is placed.

    Way to expensive for the results you get with them

    By Michael on 06/23/2016

    I think they are way to expensive for the results you get with them. I have used them in different types of traps and don't see any advantage to using them. If you use 2 glue boards one baited with this product and the other without you get the same results with them. I have ask people that have used them for extended periods of time how their results where. They have said a non baited glue board does just as well.
