HOW SWEET IT IS.

Pest Control doesn’t always mean extermination, as demonstrated by the time and attention we devote to the relocation of one of nature’s most beloved pollinators, the Honey Bee. Let Black Diamond help with your nuisance Honey Bee infestation. We are always happy to take on the task of safely extracting the bees for relocation to local bee farms. In fact, Black Diamond has established relationships with a number of local beekeepers and Beekeepers’ Associations. So, when the time comes to remove your bees, a new home is just a call away!

Black Diamond invites all community members and Beekeeper Associations to call 877-DEAD-BUG when a Honey Bee removal is needed.

Meet The K9 Team

Maverick

Maverick

Say hello to Maverick! Like his brother, he's been with us his whole life, and went through a year of training to earn his certification. With five human years of work and thirty five doggy years of experience, there's no one he'd rather sniff out bed bugs with than his beloved brother. When they're not playing around or enjoying their favorite kind of food (any you'll give them!) he loves lazy naps on the bed to rest after a good day's work.

Meet Rowdy! As his name suggests, he's a very playful pup who's been with us since he was born. He completed a year of training to earn his certification, and now at five years old, he's got thirty five years of experience in doggy years! When not enjoying tasty treats for a job well done, he loves grabbing one end of a rope toy and romping around while his brother holds the other half!

Training the Best Dogs in the Business

Our bed bug sniffing dogs train weekly at a number of locations to continuously enhance their noses’ capabilities and keep them sharp. During these weekly training sessions, a vial of live bed bugs is strategically placed in a room or apartment unit, typically in the corners of beds, couches, and other common areas where bed bugs like to hide. The dogs are then taken inside and begin their search, where they use their incredible noses to lead the K9 handler to the tiny insects within minutes.

DO YOU SUSPECT BED BUGS IN YOUR HOME?

The spring/summer and holiday travel season compels many homeowners to head out for a much-needed vacation, but these days it’s very likely you’ll bring home more than memories. An increase in travel inevitably leads to an increase in the spread of bed bugs due to their hitchhiking tendencies, as the small pests will clasp onto clothes, luggage, and any other personal belongings they can grab a hold of. Despite what many people believe, your level of cleanliness has no impact on how likely you are to be the victim of a bed bug infestation, as they have evolved to be picked up anywhere people gather.

If an infestation is suspected, searching for proof yourself can take hours, as these apple seed sized pests are masters of stealth. Instead of subjecting yourself to the headache of moving around and flipping furniture to visually locate bed bugs, have our K9s do the work! These dogs use their noses to zero in on their target, and they can detect the smell of live infestations within minutes. If our bed bug detecting K9 finds them on your property, the Black Diamond professionals will then know where and can focus the necessary bed bug treatments to rid your life of these blood sucking pests. Using our K9 unit for bed bug detection results in 98% or better accuracy!

If you are worried you may have a bed bug problem, but are unsure if there is an infestation, don’t hesitate to call 877-DEAD-BUG to schedule an evaluation with our bed bug sniffing K9. We’ll be there to help as soon as we can, tails wagging!

DO YOU SUSPECT BED BUGS IN YOUR WORKPLACE?

If you think you might have bed bugs in your place of business, don't worry! Our K9's are trained in a variety of environments, including commercial establishments, and these helpful pups can make the process of locating potential bed bug infestations much smoother. Due to their incredibly tiny size and their talent for squeezing into tight hiding spaces, it can be difficult to determine if and where exactly bed bugs might be hiding, and even a trained specialist can take hours to thoroughly survey a large site. This is where our K9's come in! Using their powerful noses, they can locate the problem far faster than any human, allowing treatment to begin that much sooner. You won't need to close down or worry about any significant disruptions to your business during these searches, as their handler only needs to guide the K9's through the establishment. If they detect bed bugs or viable eggs, the dogs will follow the trail and signal when they find the source. Should the dogs find live bugs, there's no need to panic! Black Diamond is here to help you treat these pests quickly and efficiently, so you can get back to business! We can usually schedule your first treatment in the same business week. Many infestations can be eradicated with one service; depending on the level of the infestation, multiple services may be required. We will work with you until every last pest has been cleared out.

WE’VE GOT THE RIGHT BED BUG TREATMENT FOR YOU

Bed bugs can be a nightmare for homeowners and business owners alike, but with over 20,000 services annually, no one does bed bug control like Black Diamond! We consider all factors when starting bed bug treatment, and depending on your needs we have two highly effective options; heat treatment and chemical treatment. As an added form of protection, we also offer protective mattress covers that surround your mattress and keep these bloodsuckers from coming out for a midnight snack. Bed bugs can go up to six months without eating and they can also squeeze themselves into places we can't reach. As such, we've designed our treatment techniques to handle the challenge, so that not even the craftiest of bed bugs slips through the cracks. Black Diamond offers continued protection even after the bed bugs are eradicated. To get started with bed bug K9 detection services and expert level bed bug treatments, give us a call at 877-DEAD-BUG.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Chemical Treatment

Our highly trained bed bug inspectors will conduct a thorough evaluation of your home to determine the presence and/or extent of bed bug infestation and an appropriate course of action. Unlike most companies, our technicians are singularly dedicated to the art and science of bed bug elimination so you can be confident that you are in some of the best hands in the industry.

Heat Treatment

Internationally certified and are capable of sniffing out the slightest of bed bug infestations. If you are uncertain if you have bed bugs in your home, a K9 bed bug evaluation may be the best option for you.

Mattress Encasements

Mattress covers will not prevent bed bugs, but they will help in the process of ridding your home of these pests. The cover works by trapping the bugs inside so that they cannot bite you any longer, and without a blood meal, they will eventually die. Encasements also prevent more bed bugs from accessing your mattress, giving them less places to hide.

Honey Bee Relocation Frequently Asked Questions

Q:
Are Honey bees dangerous?
A:

An estimated 5% to 7.5% of the population will suffer a severe allergic reaction to insect stings in their lifetime, according to the Journal of Asthma and Allergy. Many do not know they are allergic until they suffer a sting. Also, some species of Honey Bees are more aggressive than others, so it’s important to call professionals who have experience dealing with all Honey Bee types. It’s best for both the people living/working nearby and the bees themselves to be relocated to a safer area.

Q:
Why can't I just call a beekeeper to have them come get the bees?
A:

We see many instances where Honey Bees have built their colonies inside the walls of homes and businesses. Black Diamond is licensed and insured to perform cut out removals of a bee population, while local individuals and associations are not. We are always happy to work in tandem with local associations and beekeepers to relocate the bees to their preferred location.

Q:
Can a Honey Bee infestation really cause that much damage?
A:

The size of a Honey Bee colony can be quite impressive, that’s why it’s best to call a professional to remedy the situation as soon as you notice an infestation. For example, one cutout performed by a Black Diamond location uncovered a hive of nearly 70,000 honey bees which measured almost 4 ft. wide and 3 ft. tall. This hive was in the wall of a local business pre-opening day.

Q:
Is it true that Honey Bees are protected by law?
A:

Honey Bees are not endangered or protected by law when they pose a threat to or are in direct conflict with humans (though some species may be an exception – which is why a professional is needed). Black Diamond will always follow local, state and national laws in regard to extermination or removal of any pest. Our preferred method of dealing with a nuisance Honey Bee population is removal and relocation.

Q:
How can I tell if I have honey bees? What do they look like?
A:

Answer: There are many features that can distinguish honey bees from their relatives and lookalikes, but they require up-close inspection that puts one at high risk of a sting. Black Diamond always recommends having a professional identify such insects, especially if they're making their way into your home, as allergies can be dangerous and many people don't know they're allergic.

Q:
Do you do hive removals year-round?
A:

We normally remove bees from March to September.

Q:
How long does a hive removal take?
A:

The amount of time it takes to remove a bee hive depends on the size and location of the hive.

Q:
Is Black Diamond associated with any beekeeping groups or organizations?
A:

Yes! There are over 20 beekeepers and organizations that we are actively involved with to help us safely transport our customer's relocated honey bees.  

Q:
What happens to the bees after you remove them?
A:

After we remove the bees they will be delivered to a beekeeper.

Q:
What is the cost of service?
A:

Service costs depend on a number of different factors. This can be the type of treatment needed, the size of the area being treated and the time needed to properly treat the pest problem. Call 877-DEAD-BUG to speak to a helpful Office Agent for more information. You can also schedule a free estimate with an Eradication Specialist.

Q:
How quickly can I get a service scheduled?
A:

We aim to get every customer's infestation as quickly as possible. Most service calls are completed in a 24-48 hour period.

Q:
How do I get started with honey bee relocation?
A:

Call our office at 877-DEAD-BUG or use our online chat to speak with a representative about starting services.
