The dog team members.
Elton is a rescue beagle that was trained by FSI K9 in Vincent, AL. Elton has many hours in the field searching for bed bugs and is our most experienced dog. Everyone loves Elton!
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 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.
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 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!
