Even in Phoenix, AZ, During the colder shorter days of the winter bed bug activity often slows down. This cyclical pattern seems to be the case nationwide. Unfortunately for us humans the bed bugs will soon be up to full speed and at work again in the near future.
We here at Cimex K9 are ready as always for the upcoming busy bed bug season. Bed bug activity in Arizona has increased with each passing year and we are prepared with our Canine Detection Teams to seek and destroy these blood-sucking pests.
We are often asked which areas of the Phoenix metropolitan area have the most bed bug infestations. This question is difficult to answer. We have been to every part of Phoenix and the state seeking out bed bugs. The best answer to this question is simply the more densely populated the area the more likely there is to be bed bugs. People in transit have a large impact on the bed bug population in Arizona because of the bugs excellent ability to unknowingly hitchhike whether it be to their neighbors or across the world in luggage.
Bed bugs colonize anywhere people spend periods of time stationary in a climate controlled environment. The highest risk locations for bed bugs are locations which combine large numbers of new people coming and going that remain stationary for period of time. Bed bugs are very shy creatures and unlike mosquitoes and other blood-suckers are very covert. They usually only come out from hiding when all things are calm and quiet.
Bed bug treatment options in Phoenix Arizona can be very expensive which also adds to the issue as many victims with infestations are unable to afford proper treatment. This creates a very high risk situation regarding spreading the infestation to other locations.
Here at Cimex K9 we have offered bed bug detection dog services in Phoenix and the surrounding area for 4 years and we are proud to have an excellent reputation in our field. We do not offer treatment which provides our customers with a third party point of view since we don’t profit from treatment that may or may not be necessary.
Over the years we have saved our customers a tremendous amount of money with the use of our service. We save our clients a significant amount of money in two ways. First of all, quite often we clear a suspected location clear of bed bugs which saves the customer hundreds to thousands of dollars since treatment is not necessary. Secondly, we can pinpoint the locations of the infestations so only the areas that are infested are treated which also saves our customers large sums of money.
