Other signs to look for include fecal spots, which are typically dark brown or black in color, on mattresses, box springs, bed frames, headboards, and other surfaces that people come into contact with.
The fecal spots may also have an unpleasant, musty odor associated with them. Bed bugs may also leave behind shed exoskeletons, which look like empty shells of the bugs themselves, as well as egg cases.
We use a technique called imprinting, which involves exposing dogs to the smell of real bed bugs, to help them become familiar with the scent.
Once imprinted, the dogs are able to use their noses to detect the presence of bed bugs in any given area, even those too small for the human eye to see. This makes them an invaluable asset in the battle against bed bugs, helping to identify and eliminate them before they can cause an infestation.
The chemicals used are specifically designed to kill the pests, and the heat treatment method works by utilizing high temperatures to kill off the pests and their eggs. The exterminator will inspect the infested area to determine the best treatment plan and then apply the chemicals and heat treatment accordingly.
They will also advise on any additional steps that may need to be taken to prevent future infestations.
They will also inspect the areas treated to make sure that all pests have been eliminated and that the treatments are still functioning properly. If any new pests are found, or if the treatments need to be reapplied, the exterminator will recommend appropriate solutions.
Following up with your exterminator will help ensure that your home remains pest-free.
That is why we take the time to accurately identify the affected area before an exterminator is brought in to begin any treatment. This ensures that the exterminator can efficiently target the problem area and minimize the costs for our customers.
We use specialized tools and techniques to identify the source of the infestation. Our services are tailored to each individual customer, and we strive to provide the best results possible.
Owning a specially trained bed bug detection dog provides peace of mind for individuals grappling with bed bug infestations, alleviating a significant amount of stress and anxiety. Early detection facilitated by these canines can also translate into substantial cost savings, as swift identification allows for more efficient and cost-effective eradication. This is particularly valuable for business owners and property managers.
