At Schendel Pest Services, we realize that in order to effectively solve a bed bug problem, it is critical to find them first. Because bed bugs often congregate in areas that are not visible to the naked eye, we rely on Patches, our bed bug dog detective. Using her keen sense of smell, we are able to pinpoint sources of bed bugs with extreme speed and accuracy. Ideal for hotel rooms, apartment buildings and other commercial facilities and residential dwellings, a bed bug canine inspection, when used in combination with effective bed bug treatments, is the smartest solution to your bed bug problem. For K9 bed bug inspections in Kansas City, Topeka and Branson as well as throughout the region, you can trust Schendel’s bed bug dog to quickly and accurately locate bed bugs in your home or business.
The “nose” has been used for years by military and law enforcement agencies to detect bombs, drugs and more. It only made sense to use this cutting edge technology to detect bed bugs and is considered the latest advancement in pest inspections.
Bed bug dogs are 98% accurate at detecting live adult bed bugs, nymphs and eggs while a typical pest professional generally has a 40-60% accuracy rate.
While it only takes a bed bug dogs 2 to 3 minutes to inspect a single room, it can take a pest control professional 15 to 20 minutes per room.
Bed bug dogs average 20 hotel rooms or 10 apartments an hour, compared to 3 to 4 rooms an hour for a pest professional.
Bed bugs can be detected in cluttered rooms, mattress seams, upholstered furniture, in carpet as well as in cracks and crevices through scent. A trained pest control professional is limited to visual identification only.
Rescued by a trainer who specializes in teaching dogs to sniff out bed bugs, Patches graduated from her class with honors and is trained in accordance to the NPMA standards. Patches is ready to inspect your property today.

"I am writing this letter to recognize your employee, C. David Resz. I have had the pleasure of working with David for about the last six months. I have found David to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, courteous and responsive. David responds quickly and appropriately to our needs. He has worked with me to understand our program and what requirements we have in place and why. He even goes as far as to alert me and our facility to potential issues outside of the pest control program (such as a flooding basement).
In addition, our pest control program has been recognized by several external auditors as being "outstanding". One auditor even said that he could tell that our pest control administrator really knew what he was doing and did excellent work.
We, at VVF, greatly appreciate David's contribution to our facility. We recognize that it is his dedication and hard work that solidify a key component of our Quality System.
