Purcellville, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/28/2014 -- Bed bugs have begun to pose more and more problems in recent years. With growing epidemics in many major cities, exterminators are struggling to keep up with the demands of their customers. In order to gain some control over this issue, many companies have turned to innovative and alternative solutions for getting rid of bed bugs. Canine bed bug detection has become one of the most widely discussed forms of bed bug identification.
Companies like Environmental Heat Solutions have begun to use dogs to sniff out evidence of infestations. Because of their highly sensitive noses, dogs are able to smell certain pheromones released by bed bugs that are undetectable by humans. Dogs can be trained to lead their owners to this scent in order to identify infestations. In addition, dogs can be used to provide some level of confirmation that a bed bug heat treatment or fumigation has been successful in destroying a colony.
This detection strategy allows bed bug treatment services to identify infestations even earlier because they don’t necessarily have to wait to find physical evidence. However, most services recommend searching for visual confirmation of bed bugs before committing to a bed bug heat treatment in case the dog incorrectly identified the scent of bed bugs. Visual evidence of bed bugs might include dead bugs, bites, and blood stains.
Environmental Heat Solutions has enjoyed great success with their canine bed bug detection unit, but the company is also widely respected because of its success with bed bug heat treatment. Pesticides pose significant health risks and are not always effective in completely eradicating infestations. In addition, pesticides often require multiple treatment sessions, which can be inconvenient and costly.
A popular alternative offered by Environmental Heat Solutions is the bed bug heat treatment, which relies on heat to kill bed bugs. Since bed bugs cannot survive temperatures greater than 115 degrees Fahrenheit, this is a highly effective way of treating a bed bug infestation.
