Where are the bed bugs? How do I find them?

When you first discover a possible bed bug problem in your home in can all be quite daunting. Initially you want to find them and this can be difficult to do. Bed bugs will hide in the tiniest cracks and crevices in rooms where you rest or sleep. You won’t find them in kitchens or bathrooms as there isn’t an opportunity for the bed bugs to feed from us in these rooms.  During the first few weeks of an infestation there are so few bugs that it is very hard to find them.  This is a good time to use a bed bug sniffer dog. Bed bug dogs are 98% accurate. They will alert on just one bed bug, if your bites have just started this is the best time to call us as you can start the treatment process very early on in the infestation.

A bed bug sniffer dog is also a great tool for checking if your bed bug problem has been eradicated. Whether you are treated by Trust K9 or a different bed bug specialist we can use our bed bug sniffer dogs to confirm if the treatment has worked. If you do have a chemical treatment we would need to wait 30 days from the date of treatment to use a bed bug sniffer dog.


Things to remember when having a treatment.

We will always advise treating all bedrooms and living rooms in your property as these are the main areas that bed bugs live. Nothing will need to be bagged up or thrown away. When treating the whole property a six month guarantee will be given with your treatment.

When bagging up items you can trap bed bugs. Bed bugs can live for up to 18 months without a feed which can make it possible to re infest yourself at a late stage.
