Maggie

Maggie is a 2-year-old Border Collie. She's an impressive bed bug dog who can long periods of time. She's climbs ladders to search upper bunk beds too! No bed bug can stay hidden when Maggie is inspecting.

HUNTER

Hunter is an American Brittany. He passed his double-blind certification testing in March 2015 at only 10-months-old. No he puts his bird dog nose to work looking for bed bugs! Hunter is a great bed bug detection K-9.

 


 Elton demonstrating his passive alert. Notice his nose placed directly on the outlet. He is perfectly still, indicating exactly where the bed bug odor is emitting. There is no scratching, pawing or barking. This training exercise encourages our dogs to check all outlets when we are conducting searches for clients.

Our dogs are trained to locate and alert on live bed bugs and live bed bug eggs only. Our dogs are specifically trained to not alert on dead bed bugs, their fecal matter or cast exoskeletons. We verify every alert visually to confirm the dog's findings. This is an important aspect of our bed bug inspection services and one that sets us apart from other bed bug inspection companies. Each handler is licensed by the state as Branch 2 Field Rep. Our CA Pest Board licensed handlers provides property managers or hotel/lodging managers with an added measure of liability protection.  

Sadie

Sadie is a 3-year-old Plott Hound who was adopted from a Southern California rescue. She has an amazing nose and a beautiful passive alert. Sadie loves bed bug inspections in apartments, offices, trains, buses, anywhere they hide!
