Successful elimination of bed bugs from your home or business can be extremely difficult. Like any remediation process you must first start with proper identification. The adult phase of the insect is easily identified due to its size and fecal residues. However, in terms of nymphs and eggs, identification and detection through visual inspections alone can be difficult. This is why AZEX offers our highly accurate and trained K9 detection services. All of our bed bug dogs are qualified to efficiently and effectively service the hospitality industry, healthcare facilities, apartment complexes, dormitories and private homes.
Bed bugs can hide just about anywhere, such as: under carpets, in baseboards, inside mattresses and box springs, in electronics and behind wall areas thus making it virtually impossible for a human visual inspection to be effective. Detection dogs have been put to work sniffing out various illegal drugs, cell phones in prisons, termites, cancer cells on humans, explosives and even bed bugs for decades. Dogs have more than proven themselves as an effective and reliable tool for locating and alerting trainers to hidden items.
- We perform comprehensive K-9 searches of any questionable areas.
- Findings are given in a detailed / confidential report for your records.
- We provide a follow-up inspection to determine the effectiveness of all treatment.
Three Types of K-9 Inspections
- Proactive: Prevent infestations and find the problem early.
- Targeted: For a problem in suspected area that needs to be confirmed.
- Post-Treatment: To ensure effective treatment results.
The Hospitality Industry
Bad news travels fast especially in this digital day and age. Guests that are bit by bed bugs are always upset and often threaten filing lawsuits. Our K-9 team can find as few as one bed bug, prevent future outbreaks and certify your location bed bug free with periodic inspections. We can also be as discrete as needed while getting the job done. Bed bug dogs work very fast and can search a room for bed bugs in a fraction of the time it would take a technician to visually inspect the area. These highly trained canines are very hard working and depending on the room, a bed bug dog can search 100-200 rooms in one day.
Relying on occupant complaints alone for the presence of bed bugs is a disaster waiting to happen! Proactive inspections greatly reduce the possibility of “negligence claims,” increases the probability of early detection which will in turn reduce treatment costs, and limits the ability of the insect to spread to adjoining units (again lowering treatment costs). Protection plans for your property and your guests should include, at minimum, quarterly K-9 bed bug inspections.
A bed bug infestation and the resulting bed bug bites can cause:
- Unhappy guests
- Bad publicity (www.BedBugRegistry.com)
- Lost revenue
- Costly and ineffective pesticide treatments
- Customer lawsuits
Apartment Complexes and Dormitories
These are prime locations for bed bug infestation. Bed bugs can easily migrate through the walls from one unit to the other as the infestation grows. If you find bed bugs in one location the surrounding units should always be inspected as well to gain control of the infestations before it gets any worse.
Get your life back! Bed bugs can be extremely elusive. They are also resistant to many of the common chemical treatments unless they are sprayed directly. We can set your mind at ease and have you sleep in peace again knowing that your home is bed bug free. Bed bug infestations originate from catching a ride in your luggage when you travel from one location to another or by bringing home infested furnishings. We have the ability to search your luggage after returning from a trip to prevent ever bringing the bed bugs into your home.
