Sprague recently detected and treated an infestation of bed bugs on a tour bus in Salt Lake City

As with most major cities throughout the United States, Salt Lake City, Utah is facing a growing bed bug problem.  These nighttime pests are rapidly infesting many of the city’s commercial facilities, including, hotels, hospitals, apartment buildings, movie theaters and even libraries and laundry mats.  Unfortunately, in Salt Lake City, where there are people, there is likely to be bed bugs, which is why Sprague Pest Solutions stands ready to help business owners and managers prevent bed bugs from taking over.    

In a commercial environment it is impossible to stop bed bugs from entering.  Fortunately there are effective, proactive measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of bed bug infestation including canine bed bug inspections.  With accuracy rating of 92% or better, our bed bug dogs can sniff out all stages of bed bug development.  They can also give your facility the “all clear” in a matter of minutes, or if activity is detected, allow for quicker, more targeted treatment and lower remediation cost.  Along with K-9 inspections, Sprague offers a number of bed bug solutions including:
