Bed bug inspections and how to get rid of bed bugs
Bed bugs can live in almost any crevice, although they will usually stay close to their food source (you!) but can rapidly spread through a building. To find bed bugs, a thorough bed bug inspection is required. Our technicians at Magical Pest Control are trained to look for bed bugs via a thorough visual scanning of the property. Our Bed Bugs Removal Experts will look for light-brown, malted skins of the nymphs and spots of dried bed bug excrement on mattresses, headboards and walls. The cracks and crevices of bed frames are also routinely examined, along with night stands, dressers, and items stored under your bed.
K-9 scent detection is the most effective method for inspecting bed bugs
Our dogs offer close to 100% effective and accurate bed bug inspections as opposed to the approximately 35% accuracy rate of even the best trained human inspector. A trained pest management professional can only detect visible signs of bed bugs in a room. To check bed bugs behind walls, baseboards or under carpets, the best way to detect bed bugs is through a dog’s keen sense of smell. Our K-9s are trained for two months to detect bed bugs. The cost of training can reach $10,000.00. Once our K-9 has undergone over 600 hours of training, the dog can smell through walls, floors and even the ground to detect bed bugs.

Did You Know?
When bed bugs bite, their saliva is injected into your skin. Their saliva contains an anaesthetic to reduce pain so you may not even notice the little sucker feeding on you!
