Research from the University of Florida has shown that trained dogs are up to 97% accurate at detecting bed bugs. Bed bug dogs and their handlers work closely as a team in every situation, and are highly-trained at bed bug detection in both commercial and residential settings.

When you hire a bed bug dog as part of a bed bug inspection, try and limit the number of distractions in the home so the dog is most effective at sniffing out the scent of live bed bugs. Remove any pets, pet food, and pet toys.

Clean any spilled food and vacuum crumbs, because after all, even a highly trained dog is still a dog, and they will still get distracted if there are snacks to eat on the ground. Additionally, do not apply any pesticides to surfaces prior to arrival, because they may harm the dog.

  • kevin jewkes
    I've been using Thorn since last fall after several other 'flashy' pest control companies have let me down (others have lied and simply not performed the service). Thorn has been the opposite of that experience. Every person I've worked with has been kind, thorough, and at a very reasonable price. I've noticed less bug activity than with any of the others I've tried. Today David to the service, and was great to work with. I highly recommend Thorn.

  • Kelly K
    Highly recommend to everyone. Been using them for years! Super thorough, and the first time we used them in a house that hadn’t been sprayed in years they came back for free to respray when a few bugs managed to get by. None ever did since then!
  • Dustyn
    Price is good, but what made it worthwhile for me was the customer service. Each person I talked to on the phone from their office was not only extremely knowledgeable, but totally friendly and personable. Scott was my technician and I couldn’t be happier with his work. He was professional, personable and very kind. After his visit I feel way better about the state of my home concerning the rodent and insect issues I had been dealing with, 10/10 would recommend Thorn for the company and Scott for your tech taking care of your pest control.
  • Nancy Cluff
    The technician was on time, friendly, and very knowledgeable about Pest Control. he was willing to help on the spot with the snails and slugs that I wanted eliminated. He also appeared to understand the products he used.
  • Keri Wilmot
    David came out and did the extensive service at my house. He was super friendly and listened to my concerns. He was the most thorough exterminator I have ever had. We have been dealing with an infestation and had a diff company come out several weeks ago and the problem only got worst not better BUT after calling Thorne I have noticed hardly any problem after only a few hours. First night I slept well and checked my animals and even bugs on them seemed very reduced already! Best pest control ever! Thank you David!
