Nyx sniffs (snuffs out) bed bugs for good.

A Bed Bugs’ Stealth Attack on You.

Nyx, the Illinois Bed Bug Dog and his owner and mentor Cliff Duple of A.G.A.D. Pest Control (As Good As Dead) exterminators maintain a busy schedule. So do bed bugs. They’re darn near invisible. They hide in furniture and behind your walls. They move quickly through electrical conduit. They’re stubborn. When they get to your bed, they aren’t there to sleep. They’re there to eat. You. And prevent you from sleeping. Even the thought of them makes you itch. They’re presence is thousands of times worse. They’re difficult to eradicate.

Who Can Sniff / Snuff Out Your Bed Bugs for Good?

Once you realize you’ve got them, whether Nyx, the bed bug dog finds them with his near perfect accuracy, OR WORSE, the bed bugs find you, and they are 100% at making your life miserable, you need a reliable and economical way to eradicate these pests from your person, your home, office, hotel, apartment, school or other structure in your life. And you want to eradicate them for good. The temperature needs to rise nearly 40 degrees more than your body temperature to kill these bed bugs and their hatching larva. That requires the right equipment and the right time commitment to making sure the bed bugs are dead.

Illinois Bed Bug Dog…Your Faithful Companion

When Cliff and Nyx at A.G.A.D Pest Control. quote you a price to eradicate bed bugs, you’re getting the whole price for eliminating these pests from your life. After the eradication takes place, Nyx can even go in and make sure they’re gone. Nyx won’t eat until you can sleep. Now that’s comforting.

Bed Bugs, The Unwanted Travel Companion

I have a lot of people ask me “What can I do when I travel abroad or domestically to prevent bringing bed bugs back with me? Should I bring my luggage to a Laundromat first and wash it there? I’m a travelin’ man (or a traveling woman for that matter). The only souvenirs I want to bring home are the ones I choose to bring home. I don’t want to travel with, stay with or come home with bed bugs. Nobody does, except perhaps other bed bugs. How do I keep these free loading pests from becoming travel companions?

5 “Safe Practices” that Can Help

There are “best practices’ in your work place to employ. There are “safe practices” in travel guides. Bed bugs are opportunistic pests that you’ll encounter at hotels, in airports, even in rental cars. Actually anywhere where to the turnover of guests is frequent is a transfer area and breeding ground for bed bugs.

To eradicate bed bugs, you’ll need to:

  • Expose them to extreme heat; over 125 degrees. It’s a good practice to wash clothes and dry clothing at the highest heat settings before bringing them into your residence.
  • Pack the clothing in plastic bags to help limit exposure to your luggage. Your luggage will wind up sharing space with other luggage when you travel.
  • Use luggage encasements before arriving home to contain any pests.
  • Use cloth luggage to make it easier to place suitcases in an industrial size dryer on the highest heat setting in a Laundromat.
  • If you do experience them on your premises, call in a professional to perform a thorough bed bug inspection to prevent further infestation, it is truly worth the peace of mind knowing they are gone.

Extra Caution Can Pay Off

Travel is a key area of vulnerability in preventing an infestation of bed bugs. Taking a few extra steps can save you from having to battle bed bugs on your home front. Current trends show that you can encounter these pests no matter where you travel or how you get there; car, bus, train, or airplane. Both Nyx of Illinois Bed Bug Dog and Cliff of A.G.A.D. Pest Control believe bed bug prevention is possible by taking an extra precautions. Remember that bed bugs can and will travel with you anywhere if you aren’t being cautious. It’s a real bite. Literally.

BED BUGS? DOG GONE IT!

December 16, 2011

Nyx Illinois Bed Bug Dog

Nyx has a knack for finding bed bugs fast.

Good Night, Sleep Tight, Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite.
That used to be something parents said to their children in jest. Bed Bugs had been eradicated decades ago. This quaint little saying has come back with a vengeance!

Bed bugs are back. Bed bugs do bite. They also multiply very quickly and infest a living space before you know it. And they cling to your clothes and travel light from place to place. In a global world, these nasty pests are carried from continent to continent and have become a continental pain in the….skin. The effect of these bites is no laughing matter. It’s very serious.

It Takes Training and Lots of Treats.
Nyx is a small, unobtrusive, extremely well-trained and well-disciplined bed bug dog with only one great mission in life; find those bugs and find them fast. There are very few who specialized in her line of work. Many don’t graduate and the program is rigorous. She’s up to 98% effective within minutes of searching an average size living space. She’s 100% discreet. She tells no one who she is or where she’s been or whether or not she’s given the “high alert signal” or the “all clear signal”.

The old saying is “Want a friend, get a dog” has merit. Nyx’s friend is her owner, trainer and business partner Cliff. Despite distracting Nyx with all manner of temptation, like piping hot pizza aroma, dog toys, squirrels running about nearby, Cliff knows that Nyx has only one thing on her mind from the moment he puts on his treat bag; Bed Bugs! No bugs no treat. Nyx, you see, works on commission. Hundreds of hours of training and daily continuing training keep Nyx in tip top condition and at peak performance. Her nose knows and she’ll stick it in your business without making it anyone else’s business. Of course, no one gets to talk to Nyx but Cliff. If you want Nyx, you call Cliff. You can’t get around him. Think you got bed bugs? Call Cliff. He’ll call Nyx.

Illinois Bed Bug Dog To The Rescue.
If Nyx gets a treat, you’ve got a problem. You’ve got bed bugs. They’re not easy to see and they’re very difficult to get rid of. AGAD Pest Control specializes in eradicating bed bugs. With over 30 years of pest control experience, they’ll finish the job Nyx started.

There is no worse feeling than the one that tells you “you can’t go home”.

Bed bug epidemic. Where’s the enemy?

Painfully Hard to Find.
These pests are so microscopically small that you won’t see them. You won’t smell them. What you will do is FEEL them. Their bites are painful and result in terrible rashes. By the time you see what they’ve done and feel it, you’re infested. When they aren’t biting, they’re laying more eggs and creating a new generation of pests to continue the pain and discomfort.

When you read about a beg bug problem, it’s a concern. Once you’ve been bitten; it’s a crisis. You need help and you need it now. You need to find them and you need to kill them. You won’t be able to sleep until you do.

A.G.A.D (As Good As Dead) Naturally!

Her only rewards come from a successful discovery. Her master Cliff works just as quickly and efficiently to eliminate the bed bugs that Nyx finds.

Moving Into a New Place to Live or Work?
It might be worth having Nyx of Illinois Bed Bug Dog do a walk-thru first. Bed bugs have become all too common. They cling to cloth, travel and breed quickly in a new place. Having a nosy friend like Nyx on your walk-thru will confirm whether your new living or work place is already occupied by unwanted pests. You won’t see them. Nyx will. You can’t kill them. Cliff will.

Both Nyx of Illinois Bed Bug Dog and Cliff of AGAD Pest Control are experts at what they do. Nyx has had thousands of hours of training and Cliff has over 30 years of experience.
