Think You Might Have A Bed Bug Problem?

September 27, 2011

to identify a bed bug problem, bed bug dogs are the key

It is a simple fact; reported cases of bed bugs are on the rise in Allentown, Collegeville and throughout Pennsylvania. These nighttime pests seem to be particularly active during the late summer into the fall and unfortunately if you suspect you have a bed bug problem, they can be extremely hard to identify and equally as hard to get rid of. In order to help you identify bed bugs quickly and prevent unnecessary treatments to adjoining rooms in your home or apartment, Moyer Indoor | Outdoor, a longtime Pennsylvania pest control company, offers highly accurate K9 bed bug inspection services.

Many people may have reservations about trusting the safety and well-being of their family to a bed bug dog, but dogs have proven themselves time and time again. They have effectively been used by military and law enforcement agencies for years to sniff out bombs, drugs and even missing people and now that same technology is being used to sniff out bed bugs. Still not entirely convinced, the proof is in the statistics:

  • K9 bed bug inspections have a 98% accuracy rate at detecting bed bug adult, eggs and nymphs; while a traditional human inspection is only 40-60% accurate at detecting adult bed bugs only

  • K9 bed bug inspections can be completed in less than 15 minutes; while a traditional human inspection can take up to 1 hour

  • K9 bed bug inspections can be conducted inside upholstered furniture, in cluttered areas, under carpet, inside mattresses and behind baseboards; while a traditional human inspection is limited to visible areas only

  • K9 bed bug inspections cause little or no disruption to the homeowner; while traditional human inspections can be very disruptive with the unmaking of beds and the moving of furniture and clutter

Bed bugs are prolific breeders and excellent hitchhikers and can move from room to room very quickly and by detecting the infestation early, you will save yourself time, money and a lot of stress by not having to treat all the rooms throughout your home, apartment or condominium. At the first sign of bed bug activity, which may include dark blood spots on your mattress or linens, bed bug casings or caste skins or small, red bed bug bites on your skincontact Moyer Indoor | Outdoor to schedule your K9 bed bug inspection.
