They are well-trained and certified for this task, and can locate a bed bug infestation in a regular hotel room in under two minutes.

For those of you in the Brooklyn, NY, area who’ve never heard of bed bug detection dogs, the concept might seem a little unorthodox; however, canine bed bug detection has been used for a while. Detection methods like traps or visual detection may be more traditional in a sense, but bed bug sniffing dogs allow for a thorough inspection of every area where bed bugs possibly can be—even those you might not have considered. In order for the NY Bed Bug Dogs to do their work, there are a few easy requirements for preparing for their inspection. These inspection requirements include: freshly vacuumed floors, no visible food or other distracting debris on the floor, closed windows, and air conditioning and fans powered down at least 60 minutes before your scheduled inspection. All distracting noises—such as televisions, radios, and so on—should also be turned off before inspection begins. Doing all of these things and a few other key requirements gives our dogs the best bet of seeking out every last bed bug infested area in your condo.
