NYX NOSE KNOWS

December 21, 2011

One of our regular service apartment complexes called me and said that their maintenance staff found a mattress by an outside dumpster with live bed bugs on it. They had no idea what unit in this 100 unit building could have thrown out the mattress and of course they were frantic over the situation. Their first thought was to perform a visual inspection in every unit. I told them I would be happy to do this however there are going to be problems with this inspection. First, every resident had to be notified with ample time for inspection and prepare for us like stripping sheets and covers off all beds, all clutter must be picked up and we needed access to all rooms. The second problem is there were going to be a lot of questions of why we are performing this unusual inspection and it would create a bed bug panic with their residents throughout this building or even complex. I then suggested that we use Nyx and perform a hallway inspection where she smells under the doors to see if she can find the bed bug infested unit. I told them for that size building it would take about 2 hours which also was a far less cost than the visual inspection. Of course not to my surprise but to theirs Nyx found the infested unit by smelling under the doors in less than an hour and we finished the entire building in about 2 hours just as I quoted. “NYX NOSE KNOWS”
