As we continue to hear story after story of homes and businesses becoming infested with bed bugs, we thought it was important to share some information on the effectiveness of early bed bug detection. If you have not yet heard about K9 bed bug inspections, well now is the time to learn! At Plunkett’s Pest Control we believe that detecting bed bugs early on is of the utmost importance which is why we rely on our team of bed bug detection dogs for homes and businesses in Minneapolis and all of Minnesota as well as throughout our large Midwest service area. One of the most important pieces when controlling bed bugs is to find the areas that they are infesting. While humans can sometimes locate the adult bed bugs, in the case of an infestation, there are many more nymphs and eggs which are nearly impossible to locate in rooms full of furniture and belongings (not to mention behind the walls). So the answer was simple, remove the component of visually inspecting for bed bugs which was only about 40-60% accurate and use K9 scent detection instead which is 97% accurate. Our K9 scent detection dogs can detect bed bugs no matter where they are located or what life stage they are in. By locating infestations early on, bed bug control becomes much easier. The dogs target the source of the infestation allowing us to provide treatment (like our bed bug heat treatment) to get rid of the bed bugs quickly, before they multiply and migrate through the home or business. For homeowners, it is usually just the stress and trauma of getting bed bug bites or finding live bugs in the home, it can be embarrassing! But for businesses in Minneapolis, bed bugs can have devastating effects including lawsuits and a damaged reputation for years to come. Staying proactive with K9 bed bug detection services will save you from all the drama that bed bug infestations bring. So no more waiting and hoping that bed bugs have not found their way into your home or business; be proactive with a K9 bed bug inspection today! For properties in Minneapolis, MN, Lincoln, NE or throughout the Midwest, contact Plunkett’s Pest Control to learn more about bed bug services in your area that can locate infestations early on before they wreak havoc.
