02/25/2013 | Bed Bug Dog Detection: The Answer to One of the Nastiest Pest Problems
Bed bugs are becoming a national epidemic that can infest a wide variety of structures from the most pristine five-star hotels and lavish upscale apartments to the average home or business. They can enter your home in a number of ways – and often times, cleanliness isn’t even a factor. They may arrive with your luggage when returning from a trip or come with that beautiful but used couch you just purchased.
With a flattened body, bed bugs are able to squeeze in and hide in small cracks and crevices – and quickly spread throughout your home or other structure. While bed bugs are frequently found in bedrooms, they may be located in any area of the home that people or pets spend time in.
A few of the obvious signs of a bed bug infestation include:
- Blood stains on the bed linens
- Tiny pepper-like particles on the mattress that are either feces, eggs or shed skins
- Red, itchy bumps on your body caused by their bites.
If you do have any of these signs, it’s time to call a professional in as quickly as possible – as the infestation is likely to have been there for some time and will only become worse. As these annoying pests are so tiny, you probably won’t recognize them until the problem is a big one.
This is where bed bug dog detection comes in – and it can be a lifesaver.
