The Effective Use of Bed Bug Dogs 

There is no ABSOLUTE in the detection of Bed Bugs to date.  The closest to an ABSOLUTE can be found in the recent arrival of the Certified BB Dog.  At a detection rate of 98%, the Certified Bed Bug Dogís effectiveness yields but a 2% margin of error, one easily eradicated by the Action Pest Control Teamís credo of 100% satisfaction.  This means effectively: 

We ABSOLUTELY guarantee our work. 


  • If they are trusted by the FBI to search for drugs above all else.
  • If they are trusted by the FBI to search for bombs.
  • If they are trusted to find the lost and wounded, dead or alive, drowned or buried, can follow a scent through the rain, in a car, in a boat over miles and miles.

??..do you honestly think your Bed Bugs are going to get away? 

As of late there have been many changes in the world of Bed Bug detection and eradication, and the introduction of properly executed Canine Scent Detection techniques (BED BUG DOGS) have proven to be the leaders of the pack. 

Anyone who has ever owned a dog, no matter how small or large, well behaved or mischievous, can appreciate the ability of the canine to detect above and beyond many human senses: be it taste, scent or sound.  How often have you found your dog taking YOU for a walk as he pulled you in a different direction?  How about when he would not listen while concentrating on an unnamed, unseen substance or trail that caused you to pull him back? 

Now employ this rationale to a greater degree, and train that same dog to listen, smell, taste, and find ONLY the source of anything you want?. . .innocent victims, children lost to us, murderers and thieves unknown, drugs, bombs: why, even thirty feet of water cannot keep a trained dog with a proper handler from finding what he is after. 

At Action Termite and Pest Control, our dogs have been trained by the best in the field to be hard workers and friend to man.  A true BB Dog must be trained daily, kept active and healthy, and be constantly aware of his/her objectives.  ACTION is consistent in all such respects.   

Certified Bed Bug Dogs Sarah and Rex are not pets, they are an invaluable part of the Action Team, and as such are treated with the love and respect they deserve. Amazingly, they seem unerringly eager to do their jobs, finding an obvious sense of gratification in what they do, all the while needing only the praise and love of the handlers to fuel them forward.

According to a report prepared by the Institute for Biological Detection Systems (IBDS) of Auburn University (Auburn, AL), dogs have the following capabilities:

Sensitivity: Documented limits of olfactory detection for the dog range from tens of parts per billion to 500 parts per trillion.
Discrimination: Dogs are extremely good at discriminating a target vapor from non-target vapors that are also present, even at relatively high concentrations of non-target odors.
Odor Signatures: When being trained to detect a substance, dogs learn to alert to one or two of its most abundant vapor compounds.
Multiple Odor Discriminations: Dogs can easily learn as many as ten odor discriminations.

"Manís best friend" has been used for years by military and law enforcement agencies to detect bombs and drugs, among other things.

  • From a single drop of urine, the sniffing dog learns the marking animalís sex, diet, health, emotional state, and even whether itís dominant or submissive, friend or foe.
  • Tracking dogs follow a biochemical trail of dead skin cells, sweat, odor molecules, and gasses.
  • For dogs, a scent article is like a three-dimensional ďodor imageĒ - much more detailed than a photograph is for a person.
  • Dogs can track a scent through snow, air, mud, water, and even ash.
  • The properly trained and certified detection dog is recognized in court as a "scientific instrument" (US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals)
