A Bed Bug Dog is the best tool in the fight against Bed Bugs. Our trained canines use their incredibly adept sense of smell to locate bed bugs in even the most hidden of areas, and in places where people cannot see.
Many University studies have shown that trained bed bug dogs are much more accurate than a trained technician. Combine this with the speed & reliability of our bed bug dogs and you can see the obvious benefits of the our K9 teams.
K9 services are faster, more accurate and can also be more cost effective compared to technician inspections. We recommend On Demand Bed Bug Confirmations and Block Inspections Instead of having a technician respond to the first call to confirm if there are bed bugs.
Our K9’s have been used in a variety of unique and creative ways. They have been used to detect bugs in taxi cabs, hotels, airplanes, trains, food courts, manufacturing plants and many other types of properties, both solely and as a part of a team program.
Unlike a human inspection, which can take several hours and require moving furniture, a bed bug sniffing canine can cover a typical room in less than three minutes. For canine bed bug detection nothing needs to be moved and there are no special preparation requirements.
Bed Bugs have made a dramatic come back in hotels, motels, hostels, office buildings, and homes. Bed Bugs are tan in colour until they feed on blood and then they turn a reddish colour; approximately 1/4 inch in size before feeding and will swell once they have fed. Generally, they will feed at night and go into hiding during the day, but have been known to feed at other times if the conditions are right. Female Bed Bugs can lay up to 300 eggs in her lifetime, each hatching in 10 days. Bed Bugs can hide in a variety of places: beds, mattresses, couches, libraries, school buses, kids back-packs, headboards, dressers, floor boards, fabric chairs, behind peeling paint, carpet, rugs, wallpaper, base boards, electrical outlets, switch plates, briefcases, suitcases and night tables.
Our dogs can target specific areas and often locate the sources of the infestation which eliminates the need to to treat unaffected areas unnecessarily. Less area treated translates into less money spent on treatment. If the K9 finds bed bugs, you can investigate your treatment options. With early detection there is a greater chance of eradicating the problem which can save you time, resources, energy and money.
If our dogs do not find bed bugs, you will know with greater certainty that your home/building/hotel/hospital etc. is bed bug free, offering peace of mind.
