Do you need a K9 Bed Bug Inspection?

K9 Pest Control, Viking Pest Control, K9 Bed BugsBed bugs have become an epidemic and many people now want to be sure they have not brought these pests into their home. The human eye can only detect so much, and to thoroughly inspect a room with a trained eye would take hours. The same room can be inspected more accurately by one of our NESDCA Certified Canines in just minutes.

Bed bugs come into our homes in many ways; retail stores, movie theaters, restaurants, travelling, etc. So if you are unsure if you may or may not have them, or would just like peace of mind, give us a call to have Hagar or Helga to come and sniff/inspect your home!

How Accurate are Bed Bug Detection Dogs?

Viking Pest Control, Bed Bug Dog, NJ, PA, NY Pest Control CompanyWhile the human eye can only detect what it can see, our bed bug dogs can detect the bed bug scent, meaning that if a bug is behind a wall or in a mattress, the K-9 will detect it with amazing accuracy! But not just any scent, our Hagar and Helga have been specifically trained to only detect LIVE bed bugs and viable eggs! Many other bed bug detective dogs have been trained only to detect any bed bug scent. Because of this, our dogs will have minimal “false positives”. False positives are when a dog incorrectly signals that he or she has found bed bugs. Unfortunately, dogs are not 100% accurate, but they are very, very close to it. For that reason, it is important that the handler and dog have a very close relationship and that the handler is very familiar with his or her canine. Be careful before you choose just any bed bug dog service. The relationship between the dog and handler is very important along with the dog’s specific training background! Each of our canine handlers is a certified master trainer with The National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association. (NESDCA)
