The primary indication of bed bug infestation is the presence of itchy, red, swollen bites on the human body, usually in a line or cluster pattern. These bites can appear anywhere on the body that has been exposed while sleeping.

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.

A dog’s nose is an amazing sense organ, capable of detecting even the faintest scents. It has the ability to sniff out up to 250 scents per minute, making it an invaluable tool for the detection of bed bugs.

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.

Our detection dogs help locate the infestation. Infestations are then treated by a licensed exterminator who uses a combination of chemicals and a heat treatment method to eradicate the 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.

Treatments for pest infestations require regular follow-up visits from your exterminator. These follow-up visits are necessary to ensure that the treatments are effective and to monitor for any new pest activity.

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.

Canine detection services, which use trained dogs to detect the presence of pests, can cost hundreds of dollars while extermination services can cost thousands of dollars.

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 offer comprehensive bed bug detection services. Our team is certified and trained to accurately identify the presence of bed bugs and the areas of infestation. After identifying the areas of infestation, we will then recommend extermination to eliminate the bed bug problem.

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.

The best answer is to have your home inspected on a regular basis, at least once a year. However, if you notice signs of an infestation such as bites, bugs, or droppings, you should call us and an exterminator right away to have your home inspected and then treated.
The precision and swiftness of detection dogs make them formidable assets in the field. They can identify all stages of the bed bug life cycle, including the tiniest, microscopic eggs, a task that proves exceptionally challenging for human bed bug inspectors. Furthermore, certified detection dogs are legally recognized as scientific instruments in a court of law, enhancing your credibility in any legal proceedings.

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.

Prior to commercial deployment, both the K-9s and their handlers undergo an intensive training regimen. Detection dogs are honed to meticulously search, locate, and signal their handlers to any signs of bed bug activity within a room. When expertly handled, a bed bug detection dog can search through 100-200 hotel rooms in a single day, achieving an astonishing 95% accuracy rate. This accuracy surpasses human capabilities by over 60%. Detection dogs excel in swiftly inspecting homes and businesses, and their unique abilities extend to detecting bed bugs even through furniture and walls.
These dogs undergo meticulous assessments, examining their inherent ball or toy drive, innate hunting drive, environmental adaptability, and physical robustness. The emphasis lies in matching the dog’s temperament and innate talents with the specific demands of the job, thus circumventing the need to mask or compensate for temperament issues that might resurface during fieldwork. Among the preferred choices for trainers are Labrador Retrievers, Labrador Retriever mixes, Plott Hounds, Beagles, and German Short Hair breeds.
