K-9 Bed Bug Inspections In Bradenton, FL & Surrounding Areas

Dogs make everything better - even pest control!  Trained bed bug dogs have a keen sense of smell that can detect bed bug infestations much more quickly and efficiently than a human inspector (especially when searching for eggs and nymphs).  At Keller’s Pest Control, we rely on our licensed bed bug dogs and their handlers to accurately identify bed bug infestations.

How Our Bed Bug Dogs & Handlers Work

Visual Assessment
Your K-9 handler will visually assess the room and form a plan to best inspect the area.

Preliminary Inspection
Your bed bug dog and handler will work their way throughout the room, inspecting baseboards, laundry, furniture (including sofas, chairs, and beds), and making note of the K-9’s alerts.

Visual Confirmation
Your handler will inspect areas that the K-9 gave the alert to - searching for evidence of bed bug infestation such as the bugs themselves, eggs, nymphs, cast skin, and fecal matter.

Why Choose Keller's Bed Bug Dog

NACPI Certified
Our bed bug dogs and handlers are certified through North American Canine Pest Inspectors.  Certification standards include live testing in a variety of locations and situations under controlled environments. 

Ongoing Training
Our K-9 inspection teams are among the best. They train for a minimum of two hours every day, building their bonds and solidifying their skills in bed bug inspection.

Discretion
Our bed bug dogs have been trained to alert discreetly, by lying down and pointing their noses toward the infestation, rather than barking. This level of discretion is ideal for hotels, apartment complexes, hospitals, schools, and any other high traffic area where the customers don’t need to be alerted.

Accuracy & Efficiency
Trained and certified bed bug dogs are more efficient than humans when inspecting. In fact, dogs have a 96% accuracy rating in identifying a bed bug infestation, compared to a 25% accuracy rating for humans.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bed Bug Dog Inspections

How do I choose a bed bug dog?

The most important part of searching for a bed bug dog is their license and certification. Make sure both handler and K-9 are certified by reputable organizations in the industry.  Both of Keller’s K-9s are certified by North American Canine Pest Inspectors (NACPI).

Why are bed bug dogs better at detecting bed bugs than human inspectors?

Dogs' sense of smell is at least 40 times greater than humans, resulting in a higher accuracy rate when identifying bed bug infestations - 96% for dogs vs. 25% for humans.

Are bed bug dog inspections cost-effective?

In short - yes! Dogs are efficient and accurate. A dog can inspect a room in 2 minutes or less and have the ability to pinpoint infested areas, resulting in more efficient treatment of the centralized area rather than treating an entire structure (which costs much more!). Human inspections take much, much longer and are 70% less accurate than our K-9 companions.

5 Star Review

Technician Harry is a pleasure to work with - He always provides advanced notice prior to the quarterly visit, response quickly if an unforeseen issue arises, and always takes some extra time to say hello. Harry keeps all the bugs out and away from our home and was able to get rid of some millipedes that 3 other pest companies could not solve. Knowledgeable, reliable and friendly - Highly recommend Harry.

Patrick is great to work with. He always communicates ahead of time when he plans to spray outside. He is very responsive to our questions. And if we report any new bugs spotted he is on it - and comes to address right away. Also very pleasant
