While bed bug infestations are common and can happen to anyone, we also understand that discretion is important—that’s why our inspection team uses unmarked vehicles and wears simple uniforms that don’t advertise our services. This allows us to provide complete confidentiality to our customers, giving you top-notch services without causing additional stress.

Why Use Canines for Bed Bug Inspection?

Human bed bug inspectors are trained, but they can still miss bed bugs during a visual inspection. This can happen when bed bugs are extremely well hidden, blend in with their surroundings, or the inspector’s vision is obscured by items in the home. Canines, on the other hand, have an incredible sense of smell that allows them to detect bed bugs in a fraction of the time it would take a human. They can even sniff out bed bug eggs! Bed bug sniffing dogs are so good at their job that they’re 60% more accurate than humans, so you can feel confident that no bed bugs will go unnoticed. When matched with our guaranteed bed bug treatment services, you can feel confident your home will be bed bug-free in no time.

We will provide bed bug inspections to the following areas:

How to Prepare For Your Canine Bed Bug Inspection

Things are hectic enough when you think you have bed bugs, which is why we created a simple checklist that tells you exactly what steps to take to prepare for your bed bug inspection.

  • Keep everything where it is: It may be tempting to move items out of an infested area or toss bedding and clothes, but it’s important that you don’t. This can spread bed bugs around your home, making it more difficult to eliminate them.
  • Don’t apply pesticides: Our bed bug sniffing dogs have sensitive noses and pesticides can interfere with their ability to detect bed bugs.
  • Make a clear path: We need easy access to the inspection area, so you may have to reposition furniture or other large items that could get in the way.
  • Remove all dog and children's toys: These items can be distracting to our bed bug sniffing dogs and should be removed from the inspection area (Note: only non-cloth toys should be removed, as cloth toys hold the scent of bed bugs)
  • Be present: In order for us to inspect your home, we need someone to let us inside and remain present throughout the inspection.

How Can I Tell if I Have Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are small, sneaky pests. They are often found behind baseboards, molding, headboards, bed frames, box springs, mattresses, duvet covers, and picture frames. While they can be tricky to find, here are the most common signs that you’re dealing with bed bugs:

  • Bloodstains that resemble rust spots on your sheets.
  • Shells and molted skins that bed bugs shed as they grow bigger. Bed bugs are oval-shaped and 1/4 inch long with brownish coloring.
  • Bites, which typically come in the form of red welts. In some cases, straight lines with multiple bites.
  • Discomfort while in bed or struggling to fall asleep due to an itchy feeling.
