Commercial Pest Detection
According to the EPA, it is very unlikely a bed bug infestation will develop in an office, classroom, hotel, business or even a mall. However, these sites can serve as transfer hubs for bed bugs to catch a ride into someone’s home. Management, staff, and workers all have roles to play in reducing the spread of bed bugs. They need training on how to keep their areas safe and how to identify a bed bug. Remember, a single bed bug does not mean you have an infestation. Multiple sightings in the same area could indicate an infestation. In a world of lawsuits more and more people are suing over bed bug exposure. Bed bug bites can leave permanent scars.
Types of damages a bed bug victim can recover include:
- Economic damages
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Property damages
You can reduce your risk of a lawsuit by training your staff, establishing a monitoring program, and tracking the area the bugs are found. Our highly-trained and nationally-certified dogs can make this easier, and less time consuming and costly for you.
