Bed Bug Sniffing Dogs Prove To Be A Green Solution For Bed Bug Problems

By Elite Bed Bug Detection (30+ days ago)

Chicago, Ill., March 14, 2012 — Nothing’s so glorious as signs of spring in Chicago. Everything wakes up, from the crocuses outside to the creepy crawlies inside. If bedbugs are biting, the first line of defense is as green as the season—canine bedbug detectives can sniff out the problem, mapping your pest control plan, saving you money and keeping your family safe from a blanket of harsh chemicals throughout your home.

“Using a certified bed bug dog for an inspection pinpoints your bed bug problem and allows you to focus energy in the infested area,” says Tim Braband, owner of Chicago-based Elite Bed Bug Detection. “You eliminate the need for treating areas not affected and save your family from exposure to unnecessary chemicals.”

Bed bug dogs that are certified through the National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association (NESDCA) are fast and accurate 97 percent of the time, while visual inspection, even by trained pest control specialists, is a protracted and often unreliable process, which most often leads to a bombing of harmful chemicals, and sometimes to more dangerous solutions.

For example, the January 26, 2012 issue of Chicago Reader reported on a property owner who attempted to eradicate bed bug on his own by bringing in propane tanks to try to heat up the apartment and kill the bed bugs. The propane caused an explosion in the apartment and the building went up in flames. These dangerous DIY bed bug detection treatments and misuse of chemical and pesticides can have devastating results.

A dog like Lacey, Elite Bed Bug Detection’s highly trained beagle, zips into the room and can detect the scent of a single bed bug in places that may otherwise be overlooked—cracks, crevices, outlets and baseboards—usually within a couple minutes. Like all beagles, Lacey, who was trained at the prestigious J&K Canine Academy/Pepedogs in Florida, has a sense of smell estimated at 10,000 times more developed than humans, superior to almost every other breed of dog.

“It’s amazing to watch Lacey work,” Braband says. “We’ve seen her find bed bugs in the most unexpected spots and, while it’s awesome to see her wagging her tail like crazy because she’s doing her job, it’s even more gratifying to be helping people get rid of this horrible problem.”

By divining precisely where the problem lurks, Lacey and Elite Bed Bug Detection can prevent an infestation from spreading to other areas of your home, stop you from replacing furniture that’s actually bug-free and map the exact areas in which you need pest control treatment—that’s a lot of money saved. A NESDCA-certified bed bug sniffing dogs fosters the chance for resources to be focused on eliminating the problem faster, and at a lower cost.
