Proactive bed bug inspections are critical in the detection of the early stages of a bed bug infestation and can reduce the intensity and the spread. Early detection is especially important in senior and multi-family housing facilities.
Proactive inspections provide a detailed visual inspection of key risk areas and detailed documentation. Areas inspected include mattresses, the complete underside of box springs, couches, and upholstered chairs.
A proactive bed bug inspection will not guarantee there are no bed bugs present – nothing can provide a guarantee close to that. But because bed bugs provide the experienced inspector with many visual cues including shed skins, fecal stains, blood stains, and live and dead bed bugs, regular visual inspections will provide you with a useful overall view of a building.
Aardvark Pest Control Services was one of the first companies to offer proactive bed bug inspections utilizing a team of service technicians. With each inspection, you receive a detailed bed bug observation report that provides a useful written history from each visit. Our proactive bed bug inspections, made by teams of two technicians, also eliminate the concern of false positives that bed bug dogs can be prone to.
Bed bugs can be introduced into an environment at any time. To ensure that the findings reflect current conditions, we recommend quarterly inspections for each housing unit.
