Bed Bugs

Eradicate Bed Bugs in Victoria with K-9 Scent Detection

It can happen to anyone. A homeowner sees brownish-red spots while changing bedding. A local hotel’s housekeeping staff finds a dead bug on the bed frame. A business owner notices a bed bug on an old piece of furniture.

No matter where they show up, bed bugs are more than just an unpleasant nuisance. They create allergies and skin welts. They’re unsightly, unsanitary, and unhealthy. And-particularly for business owners-bed bugs are a threat to the bottom line.

At Old Island Pest Control, we have a secret K-9 weapon named Joe who helps us detect bed bugs in Victoria. While other pest companies rely on human eyesight alone, we use Joe’s scent detection skills to sniff out bed bugs others miss. This makes our entire eradication process quick and effective.

Where Bedbugs Hide

Customers often wonder what they could have done to avoid a bed bug infestation. The truth is, infestations aren’t always due to property owners’ errors. Bed bugs can travel from location to location via clothing, furniture, or other belongings from the infested site.

Once on the scene, bed bugs like to hide in your bed frame, headboard, box springs, and mattress. You can also find them under area rugs, inside dressers and night tables, within curtain folds, behind pictures on the wall, and even inside electronic components.

Watch for dark brown or rust-coloured stains on mattress pads, bedding, box springs, or other areas listed above. In some cases, you may see actual bugs on the premises. Once you do, call us right away.
