Pseudoscent kits are used to provide the odour of live bedbugs, without the need for actual live bedbugs. This is particularly useful in the early stages of training as it allows the training to present the dog with a strong bedbug odour in the absence of any associated scents (plastic tubes, filter paper etc.).
Each vial contains approx. 40 drops of pheromone solution. To create a hide, one drop is pipetted onto a filter paper strip, which is then transferred to a ventilated vial. After 30-60 mins, when the solvent has completely evaporated, the ventilated vial can be used for scent detection training.
