Bed bug populations have been on the rise globally for many years now. One of the key ways to get rid of this problem is to catch the infestation as early as possible. The most effective way to do this is with a highly trained K9/Handler team.
There are no regulations regarding "bed bug dog" teams. Because of this the industry has a wide range of experience and knowledge when it comes to the teams in the field.
There are a couple things you should be looking for when it comes to hiring a team to inspect you home/facility.
1. Third party certification.
2. A handler that will verify the dogs alert.
Premium K9 Services will never recommend treatments without showing evidence of bed bugs. In no other disipline of K9 scent detection (narcotics, explosives, arson, ect...) do handlers not verify what their dog is alerting to. Why would bed bug dogs be any different? A judge does not convict someone on what the dog says, it's up to the hadler to provide the contraband.
