Bed bugs can be a serious nuisance in a home or business. You may find them literally anywhere, even if the space is an immaculately clean five-star hotel or a million-dollar home. Since they travel in any number of hiding places (suitcases, folded clothes, etc.), you can bring them home or to the office at any time.
These pests feed exclusively on the blood of animals, and they prefer people. Bed bugs hide in the crevices and cracks in bedside furniture, mattresses, sheets, clothes, and even random clutter.
Bed bugs can hide for months without feeding, which means they may be in your NJ, PA, MD, or DE home or business for a long time before you notice. They reproduce quickly and can travel from room to room, infesting an entire house or workplace.
What’s more, even if they bite you, you can’t be certain it was bed bugs unless you can find them. Finding them, however, can be incredibly difficult. After all, a fully-grown bed bug is only the size of an apple seed.
Professional exterminators like Viking Pest have an accurate and reliable way to literally sniff out bed bugs. Viking Pest’s K9 bed bug detection unit will visit your place of business or your home in New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, or Delaware and sniff out the pests before they become a problem.
Meet Hagar and Helga
Hagar and Helga aren’t just cute and cuddly 4-legged friends. K9 bed bug inspection is their game. They’re well-trained scent detection dogs whose only mission at work is to find and point out live bed bugs and viable bed bug eggs. Their job is to give you peace of mind by finding bed bugs early before infestation occurs. If they don’t find any bugs, you can be rest assured that bed bugs aren’t there.
K9 Bed Bug Inspection Accuracy for your Home or Business
Because Hagar and Helga have been imprinted to detect only live and viable bugs and their eggs, this makes these K9 bed bug detection dogs incredibly accurate, which is why we have confidence in them. Hagar and Helga can enter a room and find bed bugs, tell their trainers where it is, and continue searching.
Their discovery will allow you to start a treatment long before bed bugs become an infestation.
Exterminators agree a proactive approach to the prevention and elimination of bed bugs is the best way to stay on top of what could otherwise become a costly issue.
Marissa and Frank, Viking’s K9 Bed Bug Handlers
Marissa and Frank are master trainers, certified with the National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association (NESDCA). They are Hagar and Helga’s handlers, respectively. They work full time with these dogs and their relationships are tight, which is important in their line of work.
These pairs train every day, practicing in every environment imaginable, from airports and hotels to houses and boardrooms. The dogs trust their handlers implicitly, and vice versa. This trust and constant practice is the key to a consistent and reliable K9 bed bug detection service.
Hagar/Melissa and Helga/Frank are experts and they are specialists. Viking’s bed bug detection dogs don’t look for drugs, cancer, or anything else that dogs are often used to finding. Their only job is K9 bed bug inspection, and Melissa and Frank know their dogs so well that they know almost immediately upon entering a room if there are bed bugs there.
When to call the Hagar and Helga to your Home or Business
You can get our scent detection teams to come to your NJ, PA, MD, or DE home or business any time you want some reassurance, or if you have any doubt about whether you may have bed bugs.
Pest control experts at Viking Pest recommend K9 bed bug inspection after traveling, if you’re moving into a new home or workspace, if you’ve had tenants who have just left, or your kids return from camp, college, or travel.
If you’ve got a larger space such as a theater, retail store, gym, transit center, or any other place of business in NJ, PA, MD, or DE and you want to be sure your customers are clear of the sneaky hitchhiker bed bugs, Hagar and Helga will be happy to do an inspection for you.
Of course, if you find bites on yourself, a family member, or a pet, that’s also a perfect time to find out if the culprit is bed bugs.
Or, if you just want to put your mind at ease—you don’t need any particular reason, the K9 bed bug detection team is happy to come to your home or business.
