How Does Your Exterminator Check For Bed Bugs?

Licensed exterminators utilize unique inspection strategies to determine if houses, apartments, flats, condos, commercial buildings, public facilities, and government entities are pest-free or infested. No one wants to be left dealing with a bed bug infestation, especially short-term rentals like motels, hotels, bed & breakfasts, and country inns. Just the slightest pest infestation rumor could leave a long-lasting negative impact on these companies. In fact, some short-term rental firms have shuttered their doors due to devastating pest infestations. Whether you are a business owner or homeowner, it is crucial to stay on top of what is going on in and around your property. The best way to avoid the devastatingly negative impact of bed bug infestations is early detection. We can educate you and your employees or family members on what to look for during a visual bed bug inspection. The first step to a good bed bug inspection is a supply list. Fortunately, visual inspections require no special tools. While experience will come in handy, it is not always necessary in this case. However, we do suggest investing in a magnifying glass and flashlight. Why do I need a magnifying glass? Well, the bed bug is difficult to detect by the naked eye because of its small size and nocturnal behavior. If you ever hope to catch a glimpse of the insect, you will need a quality flashlight and magnifying glass. We suggest initiating the inspection in the host’s bedroom. Carefully inspect the bed linen, mattress, and box spring, flipping to inspect both sides carefully. If at any time during the inspection, tiny dark spots or particles are detected, you will need to examine them more closely. Utilizing the flashlight and magnifying glass slowly access the findings to determine if it looks like dried blood and/or fecal matter or bed bug exoskeletons. We also utilize canine bed bug-sniffing canines when the opportunity arises. Contact our Las Vegas office today to schedule your free pest inspection!
