Bed bugs can be incredibly destructive in terms of a hoteliers reputations. Our systems of detection and management have been designed specifically to manage and mitigate these risks. Although our core area of business is the detection and management of bed bug infestations, our scope of activity encompasses a diverse range of services to protect our clients reputation and limit their liability if the worst happens.

In today’s social media age disgruntled guest choose to report activity on sites such as Tripadvisor rather than raise their concerns with the site manager. For this reason we have invested heavily in an on-line reputation management system that alerts us to any postings or articles concerning our clients. This enables us to inform clients of any forum traffic regarding them and offer advice on management of these postings.

Why Employ Dogs To Detect Bed Bugs?

Bed bug sniffer dogs can search a standard hotel room in a fraction of the time of a human and with amazing accuracy.

Use of bed bug detection dogs has been recognised as probably the most efficient form of detecting scents. Bed bug dogs are accurate over 90% of the time and identify bed bug harborage in walls, under floors and other inaccessible areas. Humans are limited to visual inspections, are less accurate and can take up to 20 minutes per room performing visual examinations compared to 2-3 minutes for a dog, so using dogs saves time and money.
