Why Canine Detection?
How Effective Are Bed Bug Dogs?

Serving Virginia, Maryland & Washington D.C.

Uncovering Hidden Bed Bug Infestations

At Highland, we understand the challenge of detecting elusive bed bugs.

That’s why we employ highly trained canines to sniff out these pesky critters, providing accurate and reliable bed bug detection services for residents, hotels, hospitals, and various other establishments.

Unleashing the Power of Canine Detection

Dogs possess an extraordinary sense of smell, surpassing human capabilities by thousands of times.

Their olfactory prowess has been harnessed across industries, enabling them to detect narcotics, explosives, and even cadavers.

We leverage this incredible sniffing ability to locate bed bugs.

Unparalleled Accuracy in Bed Bug Detection

Identifying severe bed bug infestations may be evident to the naked eye, but detecting bed bug eggs, nymphs, and recent infiltrations is a challenging task. These resilient pests can conceal themselves anywhere within a home. Unfortunately, relying solely on visual inspections limits accuracy to a mere 30%.

That’s where our rigorously trained canine detection teams come in. With exceptional precision, they can detect bed bugs at every life stage, from viable eggs to fully grown adults, achieving a remarkable accuracy rate of up to 97%.

Expertly Trained Canine Detectives

At Highland, we recognize the unmatched olfactory capabilities of canines, with over 200 million receptors in their noses. Our canines undergo extensive bed bug training, totaling more than 500 hours at the FSI Academy. This rigorous training ensures their natural abilities are honed, enabling them to excel in their bed bug detection duties.

To maintain their proficiency, our canine teams undergo daily training sessions in diverse environments, consistently surpassing national standards to deliver unparalleled results.

Trustworthy Bed Bug Professionals at Your Side

Our commitment to excellence extends beyond our canine detectives; it includes our skilled handlers. Each handler is a bed bug specialist with comprehensive knowledge of bed bug biology and behavior. During the inspection process, our handlers will guide you, providing a crash course on bed bugs.

In the event our highly trained K9s alert to a potential infestation, our handlers will thoroughly document the area for further inspection. Should we find evidence of bed bugs, our handlers will ensure you have a clear understanding by presenting visual proof of the infestation. Furthermore, they will work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Whether you reside in a home, apartment, or manage a commercial facility such as a hotel, apartment complex, or office building, our adept canine teams are well-equipped to inspect your premises diligently, ensuring your home or office remains bed bug-free.
