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./p>

(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.

By Michael Russell

VP of Sales

Action Termite and Pest Control


The resurgence of bed bugs over the last 3 years has been widely reported and many property managers are affected by this infestation.

Unhappy tenants, the loss of income and the expenditure of Bed Bug Control are on the rise for Property Managers.

When researching the most effective way to combat bed bugs, it is evident that everyone seems to have a different approach. Some companies use dogs for inspections, some don't, some companies use steam or cryonite, some don't. This inconsistency leaves a property manager to make the right choice. But what is the right choice when it comes to curtailing the rise of infestation?

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 Dog’s effectiveness yields but a 2% margin of error, one easily eradicated by the Action Pest Control Team’s credo of 100% satisfaction. This means effectively:

We ABSOLUTELY guarantee our work.

Why DOGS?


• 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.

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. You've heard of Bomb dogs? Drug dogs? Arson dogs? Now, Man's Best Friend is the latest weapon in the war on bedbugs.

Traditional bedbug detection methods can be very time consuming and labor intensive. Certified Bedbug Dogs generate quicker and more accurate results. For example, the bedbug canine can search the average hotel room in less than two minutes.

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

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.


Take a closer look at the Bedbug Dog...

From a single drop of urine, the sniffing dog learns the marking animal’s sex, diet, health, emotional state, and even whether it’s 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 “odor image” - 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)
