NJ Pest Control Company Uses Dog as Bedbug Detector

Bedbugs here, bedbugs there, bedbugs everywhere in the news these days: planes, theatres, and office buildings.  No place is seemingly immune.

But KYW’s Mike Dougherty reports that some companies now are fighting the six-legged problem with a four-legged solution.

(Dog handler:)  “Seek, seek, seek.”

(Rex gets a satisfying scratch from handler Steven Rozek.)

The creepy, crawly pests can’t escape Rex’s nose.  He’s one of three specially trained and certified bedbug-sniffing dogs used by Toms River-based Action Pest Control.

Handler Steven Rozek says Rex is 98-percent accurate:

“He can get up to two inches. If it’s in the front of the couch, he’s definitely going to find it in the front of the couch. He’s going to put his nose right there.”

Michael Russell, with Action, says Rex doesn’t know he’s working:

“They consider it fun. In fact, all these dogs are rescue dogs. These dogs are chosen because maybe they were ripping up carpet at home or tearing up somebody’s house. These dogs just simply need a job to do.”

Rex can scour a one-bedroom apartment in about two minutes.

ACCURATE PROVEN TRUSTED - A trained professional inspector will only detect visible signs of bed bugs in a room with an accuracy rate of only about 30%. To find activity inside walls, baseboards, even under carpets, a room would have to otherwise be stripped down beyond the bare walls! Due to a dog’s keen sense of smell, our trained dog can detect bed bugs even inside walls - with 90% accuracy, making his inspection a more thorough and accurate one. A more accurate detection means that if there is bed bug activity, our dog will be alerted to it and control measures can begin.  Also note, no preps are needed prior to the dog.

Don't Let The Bedbugs Bite

5:00AM | September 15, 2009

Bedbugs are equal opportunity pests. Exterminators report they've gotten rid of bedbug infestations in Fortune 500 companies and low-priced hotels. They've been found in movie theatres in good neighborhoods and bad.

People can pick the bugs up through human contact; from mattresses in hotel rooms; even a park bench. Kids can bring them home from camp or sleepovers.

How do you figure out if you've got them? Bedbugs are wingless creatures that are up to a quarter inch long. You can actually see them with the naked eye. They have a little bit of a red tinge to them. They are flat and oval in shape.

You know if you've been bit by them if you get small, itchy, red bumps that appear in clusters or in a row.

You can double check that they are not look-alike insects by going on www.Health.com/bedbugs.

It's very difficult to get rid of them.

One pest control expert we spoke to is clear about the best way to do it.

John Russell, at Action Bed Bug Control, says you must use a two-pronged approach.

"Applying chemicals by itself," says Russell "is not enough. You have to also incorporate steam or freezing."

His company also uses highly trained dogs to pick up the presence of bedbugs.

"Dogs are 95-98% accurate," says Russell. "They get the same kind of training as bomb-sniffing, drug-sniffing or arson dogs. Instead they sniff for bedbugs. Dogs smell in parts per trillion."

They're also fast.

"Dogs can go through a hotel room in two minutes. They can detect even the eggs," says Russell.

"Humans are only 30% accurate and one hotel room could take a person up to a half hour. They've got to actually see them. They have to tear up headboards, go through curtains."

That takes time. And Russell cautions it is usually never a one-time treatment.

"We usually have to retreat at least once. We also give a 90-day warranty."

Bedbugs are tough.

"They don't want to leave," said Russell, "we are their only food source. They're not looking to be found during the daytime and unfortunately most technicians only work during the day. So if they're hiding it's going to be tough to find them."

If you want to try and get rid of them yourself first remove all sheets and bedspreads and even the bed skirt if you have one. Put them in plastic bags and freeze them. If you'd rather go the steaming route, put them all in the washer on a hot water cycle and wash everything every three days until the infestation is gone. Also take a look at every piece of furniture in the room and if you spot them, scrub every surface.

Vacuum and dispose of the vacuum bag immediately.

If you can't do the job yourself call a pest control service.

The extermination process is very expensive. The cost of getting rid of bedbugs in a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan can run you a $1,000.

Make sure any extermination service you use is licensed. They are licensed by the state.
