Bed Bugs 101
On the Go Dog Pro dogs can detect the odor of live bed bugs in each life stage.
Bed bugs can crawl and climb, easily moving from room to room. Bed bugs CANNOT jump or fly. They are excellent hitchhikers, crawling onto a person’s clothing or personal belongings in one location and dropping off in another.
Some people experience mild to severe allergic reactions to bed bug bites; other people don’t react at all. Left undetected and untreated, a bed bug population can quickly grow and thrive.
Bed bug eggs are approximately the size of a grain of salt, and their color ranges from translucent to pearl white. Nymphs (young bed bugs) are born the size of a pin head.
Adults are about the size of an apple seed. Each adult female can lay 1-5 eggs per day, more than 500 in its lifetime. Under favorable conditions, a bed bug can grow from egg to adult in approximately 21 days.
When should you use a K9 team?
Your best defense for bed bug management
Napoleon, “Napo” for short, is an English Springer Spaniel with a keen nose and energy to burn. Napo started training as a puppy and showed a clear talent in scent detection. He’s fast, thorough and loves to work, the ideal bed bug inspection dog.
When he’s not hunting for bed bug odor, we’re pretty sure Napo’s dreaming about tennis balls…and possibly belly rubs after inspection.
Independently Owned & Operated
On the Go Dog Pro is an independently owned and operated business. We do not treat for bed bugs; we only inspect for them. After your K9 inspection, you can choose a pest management provider you trust for treatment. With a solid knowledge of both K9 inspections and the pest management industry, we know what questions to ask before we arrive on-site to ensure a smooth inspection. Afterward, we provide you with a K9 report that your staff and pest management provider can easily understand.
No matter what size your inspection—whether it’s a residence or commercial account—On the Go Dog Pro handles every job with the highest level of care, integrity and consideration. We treat everyone we encounter before, during and after inspection with the utmost respect and professionalism.
We look forward to hearing from you!
