Product Overview

SenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detectors are a great tool for capturing and stopping any bed bug infestation. Fitting into any room, the well-designed monitor has a discreet design that will fit right into any room. The transparent bottom makes inspecting the monitor fast and simple. The design makes it maintenance free and prevents any build up of dust. The SenSci Volcano measures 3 x 3 x 1 inches. SenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detectors can be used alone, but when it is used with SenSciActiv,  which is a lure developed by Rutgers University, it will create an easy-to-use, effective bed bug monitor.

SenSci Activ Bed Bug Lures are sold separately for use with these monitors.

Details

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).

SenSci Activ Directions For Use

Read and follow all label directions for this product.

DO NOT REMOVE CONTENTS OF PACKET!

SenSci Activ Bed Bug Lure is an attractant designed to increase the probability that a bed bug monitor detects the presence of bed bugs. The mild odor from this product will dissipate shortly after opening the packet.

Directions:

  1. Wearing gloves, slowly tear open along “tear line”. DO NOT remove the towelette from the packet.
  2. Place the open packet in a monitor labeled for bed bugs, like the SenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detector.
  3. Place monitor and packet on a flat surface where bed bugs are suspected to hide or travel.
  4. Common areas to include: On the floor next to legs of bthe ed, behind headboards and other associated sleeping areas. Bed bug may take 24 hours or more to respond to the lure. Inspect the monitor(s) periodically.

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.

Activ Usage

Preliminary research suggests that SenSci Activ packets be replaced every 2-3 months for optimal results. For expiration information, refer to the expiration date embedded in the seal of the packet.

Volcano or ActivVolcano Placement (see figures on attachment)

Bed bugs are known to travel along seams and edges. Knowing that bed bugs use seams and edges to travel around an environment, it is reasonable to expect bed bugs to walk along baseboards until they gain access to their host on the 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. It is recommended to replace Volcano once per year.

    By Carl on 11/09/2018

    I did not read the product description carefully! This is a bed Bug product and you can not return it! This product does not come with the lure!!!! The lure is too expensive and according to the reviews it does not work very good! I would not order the lures for the traps because of the reviews! So I just threw them away! Lesson learned!

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Can the SenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detectors be used alone? Or is it better to use the lures?

I have 60 beds that I want to monitor. Can these monitors be attached to the bed frame? Or can they only be used on the carpet?

A

SenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detectors can be used alone, but are much more effective when used with SenSciActiv, a lure developed by Rutgers University.  They are not for use on a bed or bed frame, only on flat surfaces.  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 bed or other furniture legs to increase your odds of detecting bed bugs.
