The newest weapon in Ehrlich’s bed bug detection is a team of six bed bug dogs. Dogs are known for their keen sense of smell and can detect odors 10,000 times better than humans.
Bed bug dogs enable Ehrlich’s pest experts to inspect for bed bugs quickly – sometimes in as little as 30 seconds per room – and without disruption.
Four of Ehrlich’s bed bug dogs have already received their NESDCA certification – National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association. NESDCA is a certifying organization assuring the highest quality standards of Scent Detection Canines.
Bed bug dogs have been trained using the same methodology and training regimen as bomb-sniffing dogs, drug-sniffing dogs, mold-sniffing dogs and termite-sniffing dogs.
With 600 to 1,000 hours of comprehensive training, our bed bug-detective dogs are the finest in the industry.
These dogs have been specially trained to detect live bed bugs and eggs and are extremely accurate.
Using their keen sense of smell, dogs are able to smell up to two parts per trillion and alert their handler to live bed bugs and viable eggs. Our dogs will sniff out bed bugs in the smallest cracks and crevices, ensuring quicker and greater control of a possible infestation.
Ehrlich’s trained professionals will visually verify any dog alerts before any bed bug treatments are made – something our competition does not always do.
Our bed bug dogs are an important part of our bed bug control solutions offer to our customers.
