While most dogs spend their days playing ball and taking naps, Max and Daisy, the beagles of Wil-Kil Pest Control, are busy at work. They are professional bed bug detectives, who are ready to sniff out bed bugs in homes, hotels, dorms and many other commercial facilities throughout Milwaukee, Madison and all of Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest.
Many people may have reservations about employing Max and Daisy to detect bed bugs in their home or business. Dogs have been used by military and law enforcement agencies for many years and have been successful at locating, drugs, bombs and even people. The reason for this is that dogs have 20-40 times the nasal receptors as humans, which allows them to detect even the faintest of smells, including the pheromones given off by bed bugs.
Still not convinced that Max and Daisy can conduct a more thorough inspection than a person? Here’s your proof:
- Human bed bug inspections typically last 15 minutes to 1 hour; Max or Daisy can inspect an entire room in less than 3 minutes
- Human bed bug inspections have a 40-60% accuracy rate at detecting adult bed bugs only; Max and Daisy have a 98% accuracy rate at detecting bed bug eggs and nymphs
- Human bed bug inspections can cause disruption with the unmaking of beds, moving of furniture and clutter; an inspection by Max or Daisy causes little or no disruption
- Human bed bug inspections are limited to visible areas only; Max or Daisy can find bed bugs located inside furniture, under carpets, behind baseboards and in cluttered areas
