Why Have a K9 Inspection?

Oct 28, 2013

Bedbugs are a tough pest to get rid of, and of course we at CARE are committed to coming up with the best solutions to keep them out of your home. With that said, the first service we offer in order to help you get rid of bedbugs is a detailed K9 inspection. Often people wonder why we offer this service, and what the benefits are: the most valuable reason we offer this service is that our K-9 bedbug detection teams can detect bedbugs where humans cannot.

People react differently to bedbugs, and this service is a great way to determine whether or not you have bedbugs present in your home.

With our canines you can have verifiable results, immediately- giving you that peace of mind knowing that you don’t have bedbugs, or if you do- we cater treatments to where our team has found the activity. These K9 inspections allow our technicians to hone in on particularly problematic areas when they do the treatments.



Below are some key K9 facts:

– Each of our bedbug detection canines have been accredited by the University of Florida Entomology Department, which is recognized as a leader in the entomology canine detection field.


– Our K-9 bedbug detection teams train daily, to find only live bedbugs and viable bedbug eggs. We do this to alleviate false results.


–  To verify results, our K9 handlers also do a visual inspection. This helps with accuracy.


 – We have a training facility where Canines are closely monitored and tested for accuracy.
