Prep-list K-9 Search for Bed Bugs
- Eagle Pest Control & Tree Service will survey the areas to be inspected and provide the client with an estimate of service time. The owner has the right to stop the search at any time. (Hourly charge applies; we do not prorate.)
- The canine inspection team will consist of a K9 Team and a visual inspector.
- Each room will be inspected and areas of alert will be marked. Visual inspections will be performed. The number of visual inspections is dependent on the area, the amount of alerts, and the areas the dog alerted on. (Note: It is not possible to visually verify the existence of all bed bugs due to size and location.)
- All pets must be removed to an area not involved in the inspection.
- Pet food and water MUST be removed.
- No food or drinks should be left on floor, tables, or furniture.
- All potpourri, deodorizers, air fresheners, etc. must be removed at least two hours prior to the inspection.
- Carpet deodorizers can significantly affect the outcome of the inspection. Please vacuum any deodorizers at least 24 hours prior to the inspection.
- All windows and doors must be closed at least two hours prior to the inspection.
- Heaters, air conditioners, ceiling fans, etc. need to be turned off at least 30 minutes prior to our arrival.
- All rooms must have as much clutter removed as possible.
- Distractions can affect the dogs' performance. Therefore, we ask that all noise and human interactions be kept to a minimum. We encourage owner observation, but please leave the inspection to us.
- NO SMOKING at least 3 hours prior to our arrival or at any time during our visit.
- For the health and safety of the dog and the accuracy of the inspection, no inspection can take place within 45 days of any chemical treatment.
