Bed Bug Scent Detection Dog Team in San Jose
Lately, our Saturdays have been spent in libraries around the Silicon Valley, trying to make sure no one who takes a book home takes any bed bugs home with them. If you see us, or any other bed bug dog team in your library, it’s a good thing, not a reason to panic. If your library is having proactive bed bug inspections performed, that means they are taking care of you. If your library, or movie theater, or hotel, or apartment property isn’t having proactive bed bug inspections conducted, they are not doing what is necessary to protect you from exposure to bed bugs.
A bed bug dog team is necessary for these inspections. Bed bugs are really good at hiding in places where they are extremely difficult to find. Dispersing bed bugs can be very difficult to find visually, especially in a place like a library. Bed bug dogs can smell bed bugs hiding in places where we can’t easily see them, and they narrow down the areas that needs to be visually inspected down to an area that is possible to inspect. Trying to find one bed bug in a library would be almost impossible for a person to do visually, but for a dog, it’s much easier, and much more likely to be successful.
The next time you visit your library, ask them if they are using bed bug dogs to inspect for bed bugs on a regular basis, and if not, why not.
