ANXIOUS ABOUT BED BUGS?
Bed bugs have become a major threat for residential and commercial property owners in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia. These pests went dormant in the past 60 to 70 years due to the widespread use of DDT, but resurgence has taken off since the late 1990s. Entomologists speculate that the reemergence of bed bugs may be due to increased international travel, the ban on DDT and a higher resistance to currently used pesticides. Bed bugs pose a significant risk and challenge to homeowners and businesses alike. That’s why AmericanK9 has developed an array of bed bug services to help owners of residential and commercial properties in DC, Columbia, Bethesda and all of Maryland and Northern Virginia combat their bed bug problems.

WHY CHOOSE K-9 INSPECTIONS FOR BED BUGS?
The road to complete bed bug elimination begins with proper identification of infested areas. While adult bed bugs may be easier to identify, bed bug nymphs and eggs are very difficult to locate, especially in early or light infestations. With an adept sense of smell, K-9 scent detection dogs possess the unique ability to detect bed bugs quickly and efficiently, with little disruption to your home, office or hotel room.

CREDIBILITY AND ACCURACY
AmericanK9’s goal is to maintain a world class bed bug K-9 scent detection program. AmericanK9 will only employ canines having achieved 1800+ hours or more of specialized training on how to seek and find bed bugs. K-9 Unit team handlers will also provide continuous training to keep the dogs sharp and focused. While no bed bug inspection can be 100% accurate, the use of a trained K-9 bed bug inspection team is the most accurate means of detection available.
HOW DOES A K-9 UNIT BED BUG INSPECTION WORK?
K-9 bed bug detection dogs use their keen sense of smell to detect the odor of live bed bugs and viable bed bug eggs. The AmericanK9’s K-9 unit dogs are trained on a toy reward philosophy, similar to cadaver and police dogs. This means that if the K-9 “alerts” (a special action specific to each individual dog’s training) it will be rewarded with a toy by an AmericanK9 K-9 handler. The area or areas where the K-9 “alerts” will be documented for further inspection by the handler. Thereafter, AmericanK9 professionals will focus on the physical evidence of bed bugs in order to develop a successful treatment strategy, with the intent to completely eradicate bed bugs where they are identified. This information will be given to the client to give to the pest control company of their choice or AmericanK9 team is happy to pair you with proven and trusted Pest Control companies in your area.
