Terminix Canada’s trained K9 team and their handlers have certiﬁcation from the National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association. They oﬀer close to 100% success rate in uncovering pest problems. This is opposed to the approximate 35% accuracy rate of even the best trained human inspector. A trained pest management professional can only detect visible signs of bed bugs in a room.
Rooms need to be stripped down with carpets and baseboards pulled away to detect pest activity behind walls. Renovation costs would skyrocket; at that point, the bugs have won the battle.
Dogs can detect some, if not most, smells at concentrations of parts per trillion. In short, their noses are far more sensitive than humans. They can detect bed bugs at all phases of their life cycle, from eggs to nymphs to adults, and can crawl into tight spaces that human inspectors cannot.
This makes K9 inspection a more thorough and accurate one. More precise detection means that if there is bed bug activity, our K9 team will be alert to it and control measures can begin immediately. This is vital to minimize the chaos from extremely volatile pests like bed bugs.
It takes more than two months of training and costs approximately $10,000.00 for a dog to be able to detect bed bugs. Our K9 team dogs can smell through walls, ﬂoors and even underground long before humans can see any visible signs.
Seeker has undergone more than 600 hours of training, demonstrating her ability and accuracy in detecting bed bugs. She is a powerful new weapon against destructive and disgusting crawling pests. She can locate these pests in places that human inspectors have diﬃculty ﬁnding. Once the target insect is located, Seeker performs what’s called a passive alert, where she will sit and point to the infested area.Above all, this is a fantastic advantage for the real estate buyer and the business owner/ manager. This is because our K9 oﬀers close to a 100% eﬀective rate, as opposed to the approximate 35% accuracy rate of even the best trained human inspector.SCHEDULE A BED BUG INSPECTION TODAY: 604-432-9422
I’ve dealt with several pest control companies in the past, but none have been able to provide me with the great service, fair rates and wide range of pests treated as CARE Pest can. They’re the “one-stop” shop for pest control!

It was a great experience working with Terminix and having them take care of ants and mice in my home. I have had no troubles since. The techs were polite and kind. Will use them for years to come.
