The Bed Bug Dog and Trainer

Bed Bug dogs can detect low levels of infestation effectively and efficiently. This can lead to lower remediation costs. When it comes to K9's, the "Nose" has a 95% to 97% accuracy rate - whereas, the "Human Eye" has only 34% accuracy when detecting ALL life cycles of Bed Bugs. Our dog handler is certified by Gold Coast K9 Training center and has successfully participated in 5 days of instruction in Bed Bug Detection Training on October 11, 2013. Joey is certified through NPMA Online Learning Center for successfully completing Bed Bug Basics. Baretta and Joey have a 99.9% accuracy rate.

K-9 Bed Bug Detection Specialist

Dogs are the newest weapon in Bed Bug Detection. Known for their keen sense of smell, dogs can detect odors 1,000 times better than humans can. Bed Bug canines are trained using the same methodology and training regimen as bomb-sniffing dogs, drug-sniffing dogs, mold-sniffing dogs and termite-sniffing dogs. Sometimes in as little as 30 seconds per room, dogs enable K-9 Bed Bug Detection Specialist to inspect for bed bugs quickly and without disruption.

The dog is accompanied everywhere they go, and receive continuous training. Each training period is documented, and statistics are calculated for the dog's accuracy scores.

The following are procedures for Bed Bug K-9 Detection:

  • Thorough inspection of all rentable rooms.
  • If our K-9 detects bed bugs, we will identify the specimen and give you options for resolving the infestation.
  • Your recommended solution is to use a heat treatment service to all infected rooms, and being placed on a Bed Bug Prevention and Detection Program.
  • After the heat treatment services, our K-9 specialist will inspect the treated rooms to ensure there aren't any live bed bugs.
  • It is highly recommended after a thorough inspection of the K-9 Detection, your establishment follows through with the Bed Bug Prevention Treatment.

The following are procedures for Bed Bug Prevention Treatment:

  • Apply our bed bug prevention chemical to knock down any remaining pests.
  • Install monitoring device behind each bed.
  • Due to the safety of the dogs, no chemical application can be performed until our K-9 conducts their inspection.
  • Upon completing the K9 Detection Program, your establishment will receive an inspection report of Achievement for being a Bed Bug Free Establishment

Please complete the following essential preparation steps:

  • Cause of Infestation:
    Bed bugs can be spread to your home or business by clinging on to any fabrics, luggage or any used furniture. A mother bug will lay up to 5 eggs a day, and the nymphs can reach adulthood in just a few weeks. This is why they have become such a nuisance across the globe.

  • Bed Bug Bites:
    Bed bugs feed by piercing the skin and sucking out the blood. The bites are virtually painless, but will soon turn into itchy welts. Bed Bugs have body heat sensors on the tip of their antennae which attract them to us while we lay in our beds. Bed bugs feed on us while we sleep, because we lie still long enough for them to feed.

  • In home Treatment for Bed Bugs:
    1. Wash skin or infected area thoroughly with antibacterial soap.
    2. Apply anesthetic cream or lotion to the itchy area.
    3. Try not to scratch the bites, it could lead to an infection and irritate the surrounding skin.
    4. Apply ice to avoid swelling or welts.

  • Detection of Bed Bugs:
    These insects will leave a rustic coloring on your bedding from their excrement. You can also look for blood stains on your sheets.

Bed Bugs have acquired a resistance to pesticides over the years. This is why they have become a nuisance across the globe. We have the most advanced technology available to eradicate them. Our pest prevention plan implements death by heat to eradicate bed bugs. We use the Night Watcher Monitoring System. It uses three methods to lure the Bed Bugs in.

The first method releases CO2 every five seconds stimulating the breath of a small child. The Bed Bugs are attracted to the CO2, because that's what our bodies release as we breathe during the night. The second method to this system uses a thermal lure that heats up, producing an infrared image of blood near the surface of the skin and body temperature similar to a small animal or child. The third method uses the natural host odor attractants. These are activated by the heat lure and are evaporated into the CO2 plume. Over a period of time the Bed Bugs will get trapped into this device, which causes death by heat. To ensure our pest prevention plan works, you will have a set of instructions to follow, and our technician will explain in detail on what requirements must be met.
