Bed Bug Dog Inspection

A bed bug dog inspection is a specialized type of bed bug inspection that involves the use of a trained dog to detect the presence of bed bugs in a home, hotel, or other building. These dogs are trained to use their keen sense of smell to identify the unique scent of bed bugs, even when they are hiding in small cracks and crevices. Bed bug dog inspections are highly accurate and more efficient than traditional inspection methods, as the dogs can quickly and accurately pinpoint the presence of bed bugs without the need for visual inspection.

What Does A Bed Bug Infestation Look Like

Early detection is crucial for gaining control over a bed bug infestation. If you think you might have a bed bug infestation, check your mattresses, furniture, and bedding for the following signs:

  • Bloodstains on the mattress or in bedding.
  • Itchy bites under arms, behind knees, on sides of your body.
  • Pin-sized copper colored eggs in mattress or furniture seams.
  • Brownish/red or copper colored bugs crawling on furniture or mattresses.

How Do I Get Rid Of Bed Bugs?

We recommend staying away from at home, over-the-counter treatments for bed bugs. Many DIY treatments do not kill eggs or treat the source of the infestation. You will waste a lot of time, money, and energy, not to mention incur a lot of frustration, when the problem isn’t solved after a few applications. You may even see the problem escalate during the time you try and treat it yourself. Even with professional intervention, it may take a few treatments to gain control, depending on the severity of the infestation.

Heat Treatment

Heat is a relatively new option when it comes to treating bed bug infestations. All bugs, including bed bugs have a thermal death point. Using specialized equipment, we bring the temperature in your home or business up to 120 degrees for a couple of hours. During this time, the heat will penetrate spaces traditional pesticides can’t reach. This temperature is hot enough to kill all the bugs in the house and their eggs without damaging your electronics or furniture. These treatments typically take between 4-6 hours including set-up and takedown. We will give you a detailed customer checklist to prepare before this service.

Local Bed Bug Treatment

Local treatment is recommended if bed bugs have been detected early enough that the infestation is still small, or if heat or fumigation is not practical for the space being treated. This treatment option is also ideal for customers working with a smaller budget. Local treatments typically take between 3 - 6 appointments, spaced out weekly. For the best results, customers should adhere to the prep checklist prior to and during the service period.

bed bug fumigation riverside


Fumigation, much like heat, is an all-encompassing treatment option that will penetrate tough to reach areas between walls and in the cracks and crevices around the house. Fumigation also has the added benefit of removing other infestations like termites, ants, and spiders. Since termites are a year-round problem for homeowners in LA & Riverside county, fumigation may be an excellent option if you’re also facing a bed bug infestation. Fumigation typically takes 48-72 hours with set-up and takedown and customers see 100% success rates after service. Since fumigation requires our customers to be out of the house for a few days, we give our customers a thorough check list to prepare.
