Unhappy families and for commercial properties unhappy residents, the loss of income and the expenditures for Bed Bug Control are on the rise.
Bed bugs particularly like to hide in wood and fabric. They hide in cracks and crevices, narrow spaces and voids in proximity to where humans sleep or rest such as: beds and bed frames, nightstands, dressers, desks, recliners and sofas. Heavier infestations spread behind baseboards, in window and door casings, and other hiding places further from the bed including items attached to walls and ceilings, pictures, electrical switch plates, smoke detectors, loose wallpaper, in the pleats of drapes, and the upholstery of furniture. Bed Bugs can be tough to eliminate.
When researching the most effective way to combat bed bugs, it is easy to see that everyone seems to have a different approach. Nevertheless, the most effective bed bug control always seems to have several things in common; the use of bed bug dogs to properly detect an infestation, the application of steam to ensure the killing of the bed bug’s egg stage, the proper application of chemicals in a variety of forms (fogging, dusting, and crack and crevice,) and perhaps the most important step is the preparations made by tenants prior to treatment.
The Effective Use of Bed Bug Dogs
There is no absolute method in the detection of Bed Bugs to date. The closest to an absolute can be found in the recent arrival of the bed bug inspection dogs . . . At a detection accuracy rate of 98%. Bed Bug Dogs can inspect an average one bed room apartment in about 2 minutes. Fast and Accurate, Bed Bug Dogs help save property managers money, by only having to treat units that have been inspected and found to have an infestation. In the past, pest control companies would require the units adjacent and the units above and below the effected units. That means for every one unit that has bed bugs, property managers were paying for 4 additional treatments.
Bed Bug Dogs have been trained by the best in the field to be hard workers and friend to man. Nevertheless, a truly effective Bed Bug Dog must be trained daily, kept active and healthy, and be constantly aware of his/her objectives.
Bed Bug Dogs are not pets, they are an invaluable part of a bed bug control strategy, and as such are treated with the love and respect they deserve. Amazingly, they seem unerringly eager to do their jobs, finding an obvious sense of gratification in what they do, all the while needing only the praise and love of the handlers to fuel them forward.
