K9 Inspections

At Heat-n-Sleep, we provide K9 inspections to pin-point exactly where your bed bugs are. Our Bed Bug Detector dog “Moonshine” detects the bed bugs, which helps us minimize the treatment needed. This will guarantee (after treatment) those pesky bed bugs are gone for good.

Perhaps you’re not sure if you have bed bugs; we’ll bring in “Moonshine” to give you peace of mind. Perhaps you’ve had a previous treatment and want to know if they are gone. We provide K9 inspections on their own, as well as part of our chemical free heat treatment service. We also provide quarterly building inspections.
Our K9 inspection process includes a visual inspection by the K9 handler. Trained bed bug detection dogs are very accurate, but not perfect. Trained & certified technicians are very accurate, but not perfect. We add the element of visual inspection to our K9 inspections to ensure the greatest accuracy. Additionally, we follow the “show me the bug” protocol to eliminate false alerts or reports of bed bug activity.

If you book a heat treatment with us, after having us do a K9 inspection, we’ll credit half of the inspection cost towards your treatment.
