K-9 Bed Bug Inspections


Dogs have been very effective in the detection of a wide variety of items including but not limited to drugs, bombs, fugitives, cadavers, mold and termites. Because dogs have 20 to 40 times the number of nasal receptor cells than humans do, they can detect the tiniest levels of odors, even a few parts per billion. With their sophisticated sense of smell, our dogs are able to quickly and accurately find bed bugs in St. Louis and Mid-Missouri.

Trained, certified bed bug dogs have the advantage when it comes to bed bug detection.  Here at Rottler, our bed bug dogs:
