Successfully eliminating bed bugs from your home or business can be a long road, one that must start with the proper identification of these blood-sucking insects. Adult bed bugs are relatively easy to locate and identify, but small eggs and nymphs are nearly impossible to see with the naked eye, which is why Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions offers highly accurate K9 Bed Bug Scent Detection.
Bed bugs can hide under carpets, in baseboards, inside mattresses and box springs, in electronics and behind wall areas that are virtually impossible for a human inspection to occur. Our K9 Bed Bug Scent Detection services can save residential and commercial customers time and money by detecting the problem early and potentially eliminating the need to treat the whole premises. Bed bug dogs:
Have a 97% accuracy rate in detecting bed bug eggs; human visual inspections are 30% accurate
Can inspect an entire room in less than 3 minutes; human inspections range from 15 minutes to 1 hour
Cause no disruption to the property owner; human inspections must unmake beds, move clutter, and rearrange furniture
Have no limitations on the inspection area (they can sniff inside furniture, in clutter, under carpets and baseboards); human inspections are limited to visible areas only
Both residential and commercial customers can benefit from our K9 Bed Bug Scent Detection services.
For Businesses-A bed bug infestation and the resulting bed bug bites can cause:
Loss of property
Costly pesticide treatments
Relying on occupant complaints of bed bugs is a recipe for disaster! Proactive inspections may greatly reduce the “negligence claim” a guest could assert. Part of the due diligence in protecting your guests should include a bed bug inspection policy with quarterly canine bed bug inspections. Some experts believe that in the future, the success of surviving a bed bug lawsuit will depend on whether or not a facility has a bed bug inspection policy in place.
For Homes- A bed bug infestation could require disposal of the contents of the affected room(s), costly pesticide treatments and the emotional trauma and stress associated with dealing with these elusive pests.

"Your team did an excellent job on our last bed bug complaint. After the K9 inspection turned up negative results the guest changed their story and admitted that they probably got bitten at the beach.
Bottom line is that it gave us great comfort to know that the rooms where not the cause.
Thank your team for me!"
