How would you like to save thousands of dollars?
Bed Bugs are expensive! Bed bugs can damage property, affect people's mental health and in the end your facilities reputation! Bed Bug remediation is expensive, conventional treatments are expensive and heat treatments are typically double if not triple a conventional treatment. Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to treat so often? Treating an apartment that you can’t confirm the presence of active Bed Bugs in is wasteful and expensive. Treating units over and over again because you’ve never identified the source is even more expensive! Not to mention the added litigation costs if a tenant decides to sue.
Canine inspections make eliminating Bed Bugs that much more timely and cost effective. For the price of the average "conventional treatment" you can perform canine inspections on tens of units. Can you imagine checking an entire floor, two possibly three, for the price of one treatment? That’s how cost effective and inexpensive canine inspections are. In comparison to your treatment costs we are well worth the small fee. In so many instances you are treating an affected unit, when you haven't even located the source unit! Every bed bug infestation that you locate, before it spreads saves you the cost of another full treatment. Do canine inspections, find all the infested units and get rid of the bed bugs, all while saving thousands of dollars!
Astonishingly Enough MOST Tenants Will NOT Tell You They Have Bed Bugs!

Performing a canine inspection is the only sure way to know if a tenant has Bed Bugs! find out before it’s too late!
It's Never To Late to Inspect!
After you discover Bed Bugs and treat for them, in many instances failed treatments or reintroduction of Bed Bugs occur in the same or neighboring apartment. It is highly recommended to do a post treatment inspection of the treated and surrounding units to make sure there are no surviving Bed Bugs and to prevent the future spread of Bed Bugs to other apartments. Most pest control professionals provide a warranty, inspect before the warranty runs out! It is also recommended to check the whole facility in case the source is somewhere else in the building.
