How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

Bed Bug Inspection – San Jose, Bay Area

Bed bug finding dog, Maggie, checks the library for bed bugs.

Bed bugs can be difficult to detect. A dog that has been properly trained in scent detection is the most effective detective for locating bed bugs. The top dog at K9 Bug Finder is Maggie, an AKC registered Field Bred English Springer Spaniel. Maggie is a bed-bug-finding pro partnering with Clark Pest Control. She is certified by the National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association (NESDCA) and the World Detector Dog Organization (WDDO).

During an inspection, Maggie will search your San Jose or Bay Area property for the scent of bed bugs. If she detects their odor, Maggie will alert me that bugs are present. If the presence of bed bugs is confirmed by a visual inspection, K9 Bug Finder will provide you with a site-specific extermination strategy for halting the bed bug infestation.

Bed Bug Treatment

Through San Jose’s Clark Pest Control, K9 Bug Finder draws on 4 proven and highly effective treatment methods for bed bug remediation: Structural Fumigation, Volumetric Heat Treatment, Steam, and Conventional Pest Control. Customized for each client and situation, K9 Bug Finder considers location, degree of infestation, and the client’s wishes and needs when recommending a course of treatment.

  • Structural Fumigation is typically used for treating detached structures, such as single family residences. A 4-day fumigation plan is often the most reliable fumigation-based remediation solution, as it is not only effective in eliminating bed bugs, but will also exterminate any Dry Wood Termites that may be present in the structure. Structural Fumigation will require “tenting” of the building being treated.
  • Volumetric Heat Treatment is a bed bug extermination method used most often in multi-unit properties, such as apartments, condos, hotels, or other structures that are not easily fumigated. The application of heat to very specific locations within a building is a highly effective, chemical-free method for killing both bed bugs and their eggs.
  • Steam (or other heated vapors) can efficiently kill bed bugs on exposed surfaces, and is highly effective in penetrating cracks and crevices to reach hidden bed bug colonies.
  • Conventional Pest Control products are designed not only to kill bed bugs at the time of application, but to continue working for an extended period to prevent a short-term reintroduction of bed bugs into a treated space.
