Bed Bug Detection Dogs
Industry Leading Bed Bug Control
Pest Arrest has been on the cutting edge of bed bug control for years. Our experts are always looking for new, effective, and eco-friendly options for managing these troublesome pests. As a part of this passion for innovation, we have become the first pest control company in Spring with a K-9 team of bed bug sniffing dogs.
For humans, bed bug detection is a very time-consuming and labor-intensive task. This is not the case for trained bed bug dogs. They can use their powerful sense of smell to sniff out bed bugs with much quicker and more accurate results. Certified bed bug detection dogs, like those in our K-9 team, can completely search an entire room for bed bugs in two to three minutes with 97 percent accuracy. Our bed bug sniffing dogs find bugs that even the most highly-trained humans might not be able to locate. Because these pups are able to sniff out single bed bugs and eggs, they can help detect the insects before they become a full-blown, hard-to-treat infestation.
Trained and Certified Staff and Bed Bug Dogs
Our team of bed bug dogs have received industry-leading training from Wayne Booth with Southern Star Ranch K9 Training Center. Mr. Booth has been active in dog training for more than 30 years and is a Certified Master Trainer. He has trained several hundred dogs that have more than 1000 hours of training under their collars. The Pest Arrest employees working with our bed bug dogs have also undergone extensive training with the respected guidance of Mr. Booth.
The human half of this team is dedicated to keeping our bed bug dogs healthy, happy, and sharp. The K-9 members of our team are some of the best bed bug detection dogs around. Our highly-trained canines can pinpoint the location of adult bed bugs and their eggs in both residential or commercial properties. Additionally, our dogs can be brought in to confirm existing infestations, or be a part of an on-going prevention and inspection program.
Residential and Commercial Bed Bug Detection & Prevention
For residential properties, our bed bug detection dogs will quickly detect any bed bug nesting locations for accurate and efficient eradication. For commercial properties, our bed bug dogs can help you detect and prevent infestation while providing peace of mind to residents, customers, and guests. Our team can be called out to quickly address customer satisfaction issues and greatly reduce the labor, financial burden, and downtime associated with a full-blown bed bug infestation.
When bed bugs are found and treatment is required, the bed bug dogs can be used afterwards as a follow up to confirm that the problem is completely resolved. The ability for early scent detection provided by the Pest Arrest canine team results in a more comfortable, affordable, and eco-friendly bed bug treatment process for our customers.
