Electronic Detection

This detection device uses the different gases expelled from a single bed bug as indicators with extremely accurate sensor technology and exact computer programming.

For a bed bug dog to give its most accurate assessment it must have a very controlled environment. No other scents must be in the vicinity of the dog’s nose or it can be thrown off and a dog can even have a bad day. Our electronic bed bug inspection device will never have a bad day and no matter what other distractions are around to throw a dog off its trail the will only pinpoint the bed bug gases and not be diverted. Like having a dog’s nose at your disposal only it’s more reliable!

Bed bug dogs are only inspecting areas at ground level. Bed bugs can hide in bunk beds, behind loose wallpaper, in cracks in the wall and all of these areas are higher up in an area that a bed bug dog cannot reach. This is why it’s the logical choice to use our electronic device that you can access areas that bed bug dogs are unable to access.

Dog Inspecting

Bed bug detection dogs are specially trained by handlers to identify the scent of bed bugs. Bed bug detection dogs are gaining popularity in North America.

Our dogs offer close to 95% effective rate, as opposed to the approximately 35% accuracy rate of even the best trained human inspector – and no other company can offer that! A trained pest management professional can only detect visible signs of bed bugs and termites in a room.

Visual Inspection

The most common form of bed bug detection is visual inspection, however without the trained knowledge and experienced to identify the telltale signs an infestation, it can also be the least effective. The reason visual detection can be  ineffective  is due to the elusive and secretive nature of the bed bug preferring to hide in areas that are not easily accessible to visual inspection . usually the first telltale signs  of a bed bug infestation start with bite marks appearing on the face, neck , arms ,hands and other body parts.

Additional signs of bed bugs may includes rusty-colored blood spots from their blood -filled fecal material that is often excreted on the mattress or nearby furniture in the later stages of an infestation more noticeable signs will include a sweet musty odor the exoskeletons of bed bugs after molting and the appearance of bed bugs in the folds of mattresses and sheets.
