What is Canine Scent Detection?

Canine Scent Detection has long been proven and trusted by military and law enforcement agencies. According to research performed by the University of Florida, canines like ours that are certified by the Canine Pest Detection Association (CPDA) average 97% accuracy in the detection of live bed bugs and viable eggs. By comparison, human visual inspections are estimated at only 30-40% accuracy. Canine Scent Detection is a cutting edge approach to the home and commercial bed bug inspection industry, capable of targeting treatments only to infested areas – keeping your costs and exposure to chemicals to a minimum.
