The Premier Tool for Early Bed Bug Detection
For decades, dogs have been used to identify drugs, weapons, and even cancer. Rodent scent detection, termite scent detection, and rodent elimination teams have been working to protect the health of people and businesses for decades. Now, dogs have made a larger mark in the pest control industry as the premier tool for early bed bug detection.
What’s amazing about bed bug sniffing dogs is that they are able to inspect upwards of 65 hotel rooms a day while a service technician can properly inspect only about 15 rooms in the same time period. K-9 inspection results in cost savings and faster implementation of bed bug elimination program using either Heat Treatment or traditional liquid applications.
Early detection and intervention are the keys to success
The first step in controlling bed bugs in any facility is to identify the problem early on. The sooner a problem is discovered, the smaller the infestation will be, and the easier and more cost effective it will be to address it.
The most efficient and cost-effective means to finding bed bugs before your hotel guests or tenants find them is to complete regular K-9 inspections.
Yankee Pest Control K-9 handlers are skillfully trained and work with their bed bug sniffing dog to identify bed bug problems – down to just one viable egg. Bed bug treatment through traditional applications or heat treatment is only recommended after the K-9 and the handler have identified viable bed bug eggs or live bugs.
What Our Customers Are Saying
After placement of traps, which no mice took the bait. A tech found the one hole that they were coming in through and he patched it up.”
“These folks are fantastic! Galvin did a pest inspection for a house we were looking to buy. This guy was knowledgeable and clear. His observation skills were amazing–he could be a private detective! After the inspection, we were aware of all the termite and pest problems and the cost for remediation. During a stressful process like home buying, it was a relief to work with someone who was so competent, honest, and fair. Thanks, Galvin!”
