About K-9 Bed bug hunter

K9 Bed Bug Hunter, LLC serving Michigan and Northern Indiana, is an independent detection service that is not affiliated with any pest control company.  K9 Bed Bug Hunter offers the most accurate scent detecting equipment in Michigan for finding bed bugs; a dog's nose.  Our K9 teams include certified handlers and single-focused scent detection dogs specially trained to seek out only live bed bugs or eggs.  For this reason, our K9s offer superior results versus K9s trained on multiple pest odors; which are more likely to alert for a variety of pests instead of just bed bugs. Our certified teams work and live together which contributes to the team cohesiveness, trust, solid work ethic and keen awareness of each other’s behaviors and expectations. Our certified teams perform inspections quickly, accurately, and professionally.

Our K9 teams are trained, certified and maintain a detection accuracy rate greater than 90%; whereas, humans have a typical accuracy rate of only 33%***.  Don’t take the chance that a regular, human technician is likely to miss an elusive bed bug’s hard-to-find hiding spot. They can run, but they can’t hide from our dogs.

 

In most cases, our teams can accommodate your needs within 24 hours.  We don’t believe our customers should have to wait to have their concerns confirmed.
