Why Choose Us


The human eye rarely sees early stages of bed bug activity. We are not suggesting that bed bugs cannot be seen but a visual inspection relies on seeing evidence that is left behind by an already overgrown bed bug infestation, such as cast skins and fecal staining.

Our inspections are the very best and earliest possible bed bug detection method there is. Unlike passive monitors like sticky traps, our dogs find the location of bed bug source odors and detect bed bugs before a big infestation occurs. The use of scent-trained canines is a proven methodology and Detective Bed Bug plays a valuable role in a well-balanced bed bug management plan.


Our dog/handler teams have logged thousands of successful inspections followed by ongoing care and education for all of our clients.

Dogs can deliver results 5x faster. A basic hotel room "done properly" takes a human visual 1 hour. A dog can inspect it in 10 minutes and this includes a second canine to verify a positive alert, as well as photo documentation.

Dogs inspect up to 3x more accurately by use of their noses because they can catch odor when furniture is in place. Human inspectors must be dedicated to flipping furniture to look underneath and behind and this lowers the rate of success.

Bed bugs are appearing in all sectors, private and public. Infestations have been reported in homes, daycare centers, schools, universities, offices, hotels, transit hubs, theaters, hospitals, retirement communities and many other facilities.
