Flick Anticimex's K9 Unit

Flick Anticimex has recently launched an innovative new service to tackle bed bug problems. The K9 Unit consists of professionally trained dogs and technicians who collaboratively detect hidden bed bugs.

Professional and unbiased Bed Bug Detection Dogs

Bed bug infestations in Australia is growing at an alarming rate and the tourism industry is facing the brunt of this invasion. Flick Anticimex has established a professionally trained K9 Unit to develop a team of efficient and effective bed bug detection experts.

Bed bug dogs are trained to find the scent of bed bugs and regularly undergo performance testing. The K9 team can represent a pro-active approach to bed bug detection and treatment.  Our dogs have been trained on a broad scent picture, ensuring that the bed bugs infesting your room/s will be found. If bed bugs are difficult to see with the naked human eye, our termite dogs can use their strong sense of smell to detect the bed bugs. They are an invaluable asset to the team and are extremely cost-effective.

Flick Anticimex’s Bed Bug K9 Unit undergo months of training with our nationally accredited dog trainers. This training shapes our K9 Unit to become the most efficient and effective bed bug detection tool available.

The inspection procedure:

Before the inspection takes place, the dog handler will pull the bed away from the wall, ensuring every area is inspected. The dog handler and detection dog will then sweep the room and bed in a clockwise direction (as shown by the red arrows in the diagram below). After a bed bug inspection, we recommend our industry-leading heat treatment to eliminate the pesky bed bugs. Learn more about our heat treatment technology here.
