Bed Bug Detection
Bed bugs are found in all 50 states and can live in almost any crevice or protected location. The most common places to find them are in single-family homes, condos, apartments, hotels/motels and are traced to the areas where people sleep. Therefore, the most effective and accurate method for bed bug detection and bed bug elimination in Des Moines is with our bed bug canine service.
Why Use a Canine Detection Service?
Cutting edge technology
Bed bug canine scent detection is the latest trend in detecting the odor of live bed bugs and viable eggs. Bed bug scent detection canines are recognized in court as a "scientific instrument."
Reliability and accuracy
In 2008, the University of Florida published a study that showed that trained bed bug dog scent detection teams can detect the odor of live bed bugs and viable eggs with up to 95% accuracy.
Peace of mind
If you suspect that you may have bed bugs, an inspection with a NESDCA certified scent detection canine can give you the peace of mind in determining the odor of live bed bugs and their viable eggs.
Able to detect low level infestations
Properly trained and certified scent detection canines are able to detect the odor of bed bugs and viable eggs at a level as low as one live bed bug or viable egg. This incredible accuracy can reduce the treatment cost and the anguish of dealing with bed bugs and their bites by detecting them while the infestation is at a low level.
