Scentsational Hounds

Certified Canine Bedbug Detection

Bed Bugs? EWW!

Bed bugs can infest any home or building, regardless of its level of cleanliness. Bed bugs can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or socioeconomic status. However, certain people may be more at risk, including those who travel frequently, live in multi-unit housing such as apartments or dormitories, and have a cluttered living environment. Bed bugs can also be brought into a home on secondhand furniture, clothing, or other items purchased from thrift stores or garage sales.

They are small, parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans and other animals. They are reddish-brown in color, and their bodies are flat and oval-shaped, which allows them to hide in tight spaces such as mattress seams, furniture, and baseboards. Bed bugs are primarily active at night and can leave itchy bite marks on their hosts. They are easily transported from place to place through luggage, clothing, and furniture, which is why they are a common problem in hotels and other public spaces. Bed bugs can be difficult to get rid of and often require professional extermination services to eliminate them completely.

Why Use Scentsational Hounds?

Scentsational Hounds has been independently owned since 2009.  Our dogs are trained in-house for the detection of live bed bugs and viable eggs. Our dogs and handler are certified by the National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association (NESDCA).  We train daily with live bed bugs and attend advanced canine workshops to ensure handler and canines keep up with current techniques.

Benefits of Using Dogs

Canine inspections outmatch human inspections, canines using scientifically proven methods* have an accuracy rate of 95% whereas a visual inspection, even by trained pest contol operators, are estimated to be about 35% accurate. Besides the accuracy of the canines, they are also able to complete an inspection in a fraction of the time of a visual inspection, with virtually no disruption to the home or business.
