Why Choose ThermoPest's K9 Detection Services?

  • Unmatched Accuracy: Our K9 teams are trained to detect the distinct scent of live bed bugs and viable eggs, ensuring that no infestation goes undetected. With an accuracy rate exceeding 95%, our dogs outperform traditional human inspections.
  • Swift and Efficient: A K9 inspection can cover an entire room in minutes, making it possible to inspect multiple rooms or entire buildings swiftly and efficiently—minimising disruption to your day.
  • Non-Invasive and Minimally Disruptive: Unlike other methods that may involve disassembling furniture or moving belongings, ThermoPest’s K9 detection is non-invasive. Our trained dogs can sniff out bed bugs without causing any mess or disruption.

How to Check for Bed Bugs

Before scheduling a professional ThermoPest K9 detection service, you might want to perform an initial check for bed bugs yourself. Here are some steps to follow:

  1. Visual Inspection: Look for physical signs of bed bugs, which are small, reddish-brown insects about the size of an apple seed. They can often be found in mattress seams, box springs, and bed frames.
  2. Check for Bites: Bed bug bites typically appear as small, red, itchy welts, often in clusters or lines. If you or family members are experiencing unexplained bites, bed bugs might be the cause.
  3. Spot the Indicators: Look for reddish or rust-coloured stains on sheets or mattresses (caused by crushed bugs) and tiny dark spots of bed bug excrement.
  4. Inspect Common Hiding Places: Bed bugs can hide in various places, including furniture crevices, behind wallpaper, and in electrical outlets. Use a torch to check these areas thoroughly.
Even if you don’t find definitive signs, bed bugs can be elusive and difficult to spot. That’s where ThermoPest’s K9 detection services can provide peace of mind with a thorough and accurate inspection.

Our Process

  1. Initial Consultation: We begin with a thorough consultation to understand your needs and the extent of the potential infestation.
  2. K9 Inspection: Our certified K9 detection dog, along with a professional handler, will conduct a detailed inspection of the designated areas. The dog will signal any positive identifications of bed bugs.
  3. Reporting: After the inspection, we will provide you with a comprehensive report detailing the findings and the exact locations of detected bed bugs.
  4. Follow-Up: If bed bugs are detected, we offer recommendations for effective extermination methods to ensure your space is bed bug-free.
