Creating Your Bed Bug Prevention Plan
Residential Bed Bug Inspection
If you’re currently working with a professional pest control company, you need to meet with your provider and ask them to review their Bed Bug approach. Have them detail their plan to protect your home against an infestation and how they would handle the situation if Bed Bugs are to appear. If you’re not satisfied with the answers you receive, call Anderson. As one of the foremost proponents of Bed Bug prevention and eradication in the Midwest, Anderson can custom design a Plan that will precisely meet your needs.
Anderson’s trained Bed Bug Consultant will provide the following as part of a comprehensive program:
- Conduct an assessment of your program needs based on the type of facility and the level and nature of the Bed Bug threat.
- Help you assign specific responsibilities to various staff members.
- Provide a one-time or a routine inspection training for housekeeping or maintenance staff.
- Provide a recommendation for treatment based on experience and knowledge of your facility and business.
Your Anderson Consultant will also help you decide the frequency of inspection and whether inspection should be conducted by your in-house staff, a pest professional, or a canine inspection team.
The Three Phases of Bed Bug Prevention
Your Anderson Consultant will explain to you – and your staff – how implementing the Three Phase approach will prevent Bed Bugs from taking up residence in your facility, and, if they do, the proper procedures for eradicating the infestation.
Commercial Bed Bug Inspection
As bed bug infestations continue to be a concern in the commercial sector, bed bug control measures have become a modern business essential. Bed bugs require expertise to eliminate and an infestation in one room can quickly spread. As one of the foremost providers of bed bug prevention and eradication in the Midwest, Anderson will custom design a plan that will precisely meet your needs. Our comprehensive programs combine inspections, staff training, and an aggressive service strategy when infestations are discovered. This combination protects your brand and demonstrates your facility is actively working to mitigate the risk associated with bed bugs.
During the initial visit, our technician will thoroughly inspect your facility to look for evidence of bed bug activity. In most cases, a bed bug infestation can be accurately assessed by your Anderson technician. However, in cases of detecting low-level infestations in large areas, a bed bug dog may be a more affordable and effective option.
Canine Inspection Services
In most cases, a bed bug infestation can be accurately assessed by your Anderson technician. However, in cases of detecting low-level infestations in vast areas such as Schools, Offices, Hotels and Apartment Complexes, a bed bug dog may be a more affordable and effective option.
Bed bug dogs use their keen sense of smell to detect live bed bugs and bed bug eggs with a high degree of accuracy, in a small amount of time. Additionally, they can pinpoint the infestation to a particular area, which may eliminate the need for broadcast chemical treatment.
They may be used to determine if treatment is necessary, if the treatment worked, and may be used on an on-going preventive basis (Monthly, Quarterly or Bi-Annually).
Anderson recommends using a bed bug canine company with the following:
- Extensive dog-handling experience
- Daily training on scent discrimination
- NESDCA (National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association) Certified
- Multiple canine dogs available for inspection
Having multiple canine dogs available is imperative to the success of an inspection because it ensures that the dogs are rested and providing optimal service. To secure better accuracy, Anderson recommends using a bed bud canine company not affiliated with a pest control company.
