Bed Bugs
Bed Bugs
by Where are they found?

Bed bug inspections can be very challenging for a regular pest control inspector. Bed bugs can be found in several locations that cannot be visually inspected. An inspector has to be very invasive to a room to be able to visually inspect for bed bugs. An inspector can look for hours and may still not be able to detect a low infestation of bed bugs. This is why we are happy to offer our Bedbug Dog service to you.

Homes
Bed bugs can enter a home in several different ways. Bed bugs can be on furniture, mattresses, luggage, and even clothing. As you can see it is almost impossible to completely guard against these hitchhikers. But trying to limit the possibilities is one of your best defense. If you travel or have a college student coming home frequently then you may want to look into regular inspections.

Hotels
Hotels are high on the list for someone to pick up bed bugs. Unfortunately bed bugs do not discriminate which hotels they infest. If you travel you will want to inspect the hotel room before bringing in your luggage. Bed bugs can be found on the mattress or box spring, headboards, bed frame, night stands, and even behind picture frames.

Apartments
If you live or plan on living in an apartment you will want to get familiar with identifying bed bugs. Bed bugs can be found in cracks and crevices so an apartment may look good on the surface but bed bugs may not be visible. Having a thorough inspection done before you move in may save you hundreds of dollars after you move your things in.
