Humans only have 17-29% accuracy. Studies were done by the University of Florida on our dogs only.

Reduction of liability

No need to tear a room apart and move heavy furniture thus reducing worker liability. Using K9 P.I. also reduces liability if a lawsuit is claimed against your business.


We arrive in unmarked vehicles. Our teams wear business attire, and in most cases your employees and customers have no idea we are there or even have a dog with us.

Scientifically Proven

A hotel field study has shown that our dogs have been able to locate as few as one bed bug in a hotel room.

Prevent Infestations

Finding the problem with routine inspections before it’s too late can save reputations, loss of clientele and give you peace of mind.

Bed Bugs on the Rise!

Despite the reduction of travel during covid, bed bugs have seemed to prevail and are on the rise. Bed bugs being dormant during this time only means they did not travel around but waited patiently for their blood meal which research shows can be over a year. If an establishment had bed bugs before the pandemic, chances of them still being there are high. According to Dr. Richard Naylor, director and chief entomologist at The Bed Bug Foundation, “If they’ve been dormant for months, bed bugs will be highly aggressive, particularly when it’s dark”. This means bed bugs are much more likely to bite when a host returns.

The Canine’s Brain

The part of a canine’s brain that is devoted to smelling is 40 times greater than ours in size. They also possess up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their nose, compared to about six million in humans. Thanks to their olfactory system, a dog can detect the scent of a single bed bug and/or viable eggs. Humans don’t typically notice infestations until it’s too late, mostly because the bed bugs are so elusive. By the time you can visually see one or two they are everywhere.
