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.

Be Assured - Action Guarantees Our Work!  Ask about our 90 Day Guarantee.


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.
