Are There Dogs That Really Help with Finding Bed Bugs?

Cleggs-Preview-Rambo-SmokeDogs are known to sniff out everything from drugs and bombs to mold and electronic devices, but did you know that there are some dogs who are trained to detect bed bugs? A dog’s great sense of smell allows it to find objects and living things far more easily than a human can, making them great resources for pest control experts. If you suspect that you may have a problem with bed bugs in your property, you may want to consider hiring a pest control service that uses these kind of dogs.

How Bed Bug Dogs Are Trained

Before any dog can be trusted to detect bed bugs in a home or business, they need to go through extensive training to prevent false positives. They’ll start out with an experienced and certified trainer who can teach them to recognize the scent of bed bugs as something unique and special. Once they have developed some skill, they will begin training with their permanent partner. It’s very important for a bed bug dog and their human handler to have a close relationship. Breeds, such as Labradors, are known for their sense of smell, therefore they usually make the best detectors.

The Future Role of Dogs

Bed bug infestations are on the rise in the United States, and dogs will play an important role in detection going forward. Because bed bugs are so small, it can be very hard for humans to detect where infestations are located. In fact, a human detector will often have to tear apart furniture and even remove floor boards to find the source of a problem. With a simple signal to their handler, however, a dog can point out bed bugs in just a few minutes. Improving time spent detecting bugs is very attractive to both business owners and customers.
