Our Bed Bug Sniffing Dogs Are On The Job!
If you believe you might have a bedbug problem and you do not want to have a treatment performed without verifying that you have an active bedbug problem, Select Exterminating uses Certified Canine Scent Detection Dogs that are certified by the NESDCA (National Entomological Scent Detection Canine Association) to come into your home or business to determine if bedbugs exist.
Scent detection dogs have been used by the armed services and law enforcement to find missing persons, drugs, explosives, etc. Scent detection dogs have been used for years for termite inspections as well. Scent detection dogs have been able to positively identify a single bedbug in a structure. This is much more comprehensive than a visual inspection with an inspector.
