The holiday hustle and bustle is almost here- are you prepared? Family and friends will be coming to stay soon, so now is a good time to plan ahead for your canine bed bug inspection from Sprague Pest Solutions. When your guests leave, you will want to be assured that they have not brought with them any unwelcome house guests like bed bugs, so a bed bug inspection by our trained bed bug detection dogs should be your first call of order. Whether you live in Utah, Washington, Oregon or elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest, Sprague is the bed bug removal expert in your area and our K-9 inspections are extremely accurate, recognizing an infestation that would not be detected by the naked eye. Our bed bug sniffing dogs are trained in much the same way that bomb detecting and drug detecting dogs are; bed bugs are known to give off a faint scent that can be tracked by the sensitive nose of a dog. Not only will our dogs detect adult bed bugs in your home, but also bed bug eggs. So how do canine bed bug inspections work?
Our dog and handler will work with you to determine a room list that needs to be checked.
A thorough inspection of each room will take just 2 to 3 minutes (per room). Special attention will be given to areas where bed bugs are most likely to be found or in rooms where anyone has seen signs of bed bugs or complained of bed bug bites.
Our dogs will not bark if they detect bed bugs; instead, they will sit and ‘point’ at them.
Any findings will be thoroughly documented.
Once our canine bed bug inspection is complete, the handler will review any findings with you. IF bed bugs are found, a bed bug treatment option will be explained to you.
If you suspect a bed bug problem or you would like to schedule a proactive canine inspection to be sure you are bed bug free, call the pest control professionals at Sprague Pest Solutions. We have been providing quality pest control services for the homes and businesses in our area for over 85 years. If you live in Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, or elsewhere in our service area, contact us today.
