A new method of bed bug control is being used by exterminators in Austin, Texas – bed bug K-9 inspection. Highly-trained bed bug dogs like Bernie and Lucy of Pest Management, Inc., are used by pest control companies to sniff out bed bugs hidden in furniture and walls. These K-9 units are used mostly for bed bug prevention – it is easier to eradicate bed bugs if bed bug dogs can find them before humans even notice a bed bug infestation. Once an infestation is discovered, bed bug treatment can begin. This can include bed bug thermal heat remediation and Cryonite treatment – both organic pest control methods that kill bed bugs – and use of chemical pesticides. A combination of multiple treatments is often the best pest control method for getting rid of bed bugs.
