Roscoe the Bed Bug Dog and Our Canine Teams Sniff & Detect Hidden Bed Bugs
Bell Environmental’s Bed Bug K9 Force performs bed bug inspections by sniffing out bed bugs and their eggs, accurately pinpointing an otherwise invisible bed bug infestation. So if you have unexplained bites or a rash, or suspect that you brought bed bugs home from a recent vacation or trip to the movies, call Bell Environmental for a dog inspection. Roscoe the Bed Bug Dog and our bed bug canine teams will find out if and where these insects are hiding in your home or office. Then Bell Environmental can solve your bed bug issues. Our bed bug dogs aren’t just naturals; they have degrees. All of our certified dog teams are trained to sniff live bed bugs and viable eggs hiding in tiny nooks and crannies and behind walls that no human can easily find.
The best inspection method for bed bug detection involves bringing in Bell Environmental’s Roscoe or another bed bug dog, who can smell bugs hiding inside walls. How capable are our dogs? Each member of our canine team is up to 250% better than any person at bed bug detection- with 95-98% accuracy.
Canine inspections are especially important before you rent or buy a home or apartment. Any signs of past infestations are removed when units painted and cleaned, but the bugs haven’t gone away. These insects hide inside walls waiting for new residents to arrive. Right after you’ve moved and settled in, you’ll have a very itchy problem.
Bell Environmental’s bed bug dog inspections are a unique service that can prove cost effective by locating bed bugs before they become overwhelming infestations, potentially reducing your total treatment area. If you don’t detect bed bugs in their early stages, you will soon have a large infestation: Two breeding bed bugs can multiply to 152 bed bugs and 130 eggs in a month and to 302 bed bugs and over 1,000 eggs in 45 days.
Bed Bug Sniffing Dogs with Degrees
Roscoe the Bed Bug Dog and aour other canine detectives are graduates of the Forensic and Scientific Training Investigations Center (FSI). FSI’s Master Trainer David Latimer holds numerous technical certifications in forensics, fire and explosion investigation, and K9 training. Bell Environmental’s handlers attend this canine academy and complete intensive training. Each dog has only one handler, so they work closely as a pair of bed bug inspection pros. All of our handler-dog teams currently hold WDDO (World Detector Dog Organization) certifications. This training is reinforced at our dedicated facility where our canines reside.
Benefits of Canine Bed Bug Detection
- Studies have proven that trained bed bug sniffing dogs are 98% accurate in detecting the presence of bed bugs and their eggs whereas humans are 30-40% effective at finding low level infestations. People can’t see deep inside furniture where bed bugs hide. We also don’t have X-ray vision to see inside walls, behind outlets, cable and phone jacks, and light switches where bed bugs also like hide.
- Perfect for use in health care facilities, residences, and large corporate environments where the actual scope of a bed bug infestation is not known.
- Ideal for large apartment buildings. Roscoe and his fellow canine detectives can determine which units are experiencing bed bug activity and which ones are free from bed bugs.
- Bed Bug Dogs are a great way to learn if you’re moving into an apartment with hidden bed bugs. Know before you move in so you avoid this itchy problem.
