San Francisco Bed Bug Inspections – 3 Potential Outcomes

My dog and I provide San Francisco Bed Bug Inspections, not only in San Francisco, but also San Jose and the rest of the peninsula and Silicon Valley Areas.

When you use a scent detection canine team to inspect for bed bugs, there are 2 possible outcomes that could result:

1.  When the bed bug dog displays no primary or secondary alerts, chances are very good that you have no bed bugs in your home (or area being inspected in the case of a business).

– While scent detection canine inspections are not always 100% reliable, they are by far, the best tool we have for finding bed bugs.  A bed bug inspection using a well trained and certified canine team should give you peace of mind.

2.  When the dog alerts, and the handler (or other pest inspector) doesn’t find any bed bugs in the area of the alert, the recommendation should be continued monitoring (in most cases, there are some exceptions) until the dog stops alerting, or until bed bug activity is confirmed.

– The handler or another inspector working with the handler should try to verify all of the dog alerts.  If you’re working with a team that doesn’t verify it’s alerts before making a recommendation for treatment, you should find a new dog team to work with.  For more information, please read this article I wrote about it.

– Sometimes when the handler attempts to verify the alert by searching the area of the alert for bed bugs, they are unable to find bugs.  Bed bugs are very good at hiding and can be difficult to find, which is why we use dogs to try to find them.  It is worthwhile to continue monitoring for bed bugs until bed bugs are found, or until our suspicions about bed bugs are resolved.

3.  When the dog alerts, and the handler (or other pest inspector) finds bed bugs in the area of the alert, the inspector should recommend a treatment based on the type of activity found and the limitations of the structure to be treated.
