How do I know if I have a bed bug issue?

There are typically different indicators that suggest you might have a bed bug issue…it depends a LOT on how long the problem has been present. In the early stages, you may see bug bites on the body – bed bugs feast on human blood, so they are eager to get to any people they can. If there has been a more extended problem, you may start to see remains of the bugs in leftover carcasses and waste – they will nest and breed and continue to haunt you until you handle it – they will not simply go away.

We will inform you about any live bed bugs or eggs on your premises using our expert bed bug dogs and handlers. Our dogs are not alert to dead bugs or the waste they leave behind: we only find active, live bed bugs and help you stop the problem from continuing or spreading.

Do you do both residential and commercial inspections?

Yes, absolutely. We service private homes, apartments, condos, co-ops, schools, hospitals, movie theaters, apartment complexes, offices, summer camps, college dormitories, cars, boats, trains and planes. Feel free to give us a call – we would love to hear what you need to be inspected.

Are bed bug dogs effective?

Dogs that are trained and certified have been shown to have a 97% success rate in locating live bed bugs. At NYC Bed Bug Inspectors, we only use certified dogs, and our handlers have also passed crucial training programs and certifications. We are experts in the field, and we stand behind the results produced by our four-legged friends—our nose really knows!
