ABSTRACT Detection of low-level bed bug, Cimex lectularius L. (Hemiptera: Cimicidae), infestations is essential for early intervention, confirming eradication of infestations, and reducing the spread of bed bugs. Despite the importance of detection, few effective tools and methods exist for detecting low numbers of bed bugs. Scent dogs were developed as a tool for detecting bed bugs in recent years. However, there are no data demonstrating the reliability of trained canines under natural… Expand
Pest detection dogs for wood boring longhorn beetles
Invasive alien species are increasing due to globalization. Their spread has resulted in global economic losses. Asian [Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky)] (ALB) and citrus [A. chinensisExpand
Pest Management Strategies for Bed Bugs (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) in Multiunit Housing: A Literature Review on Field Studies
TLDR
It is demonstrated that programs using IPM approaches for bed bug management can lead to significant reductions in bed bug incidence and density when compared with insecticidereliant approaches, however, total elimination of bed bugs in multiunit environments remains a challenge and is often reported as unattainable, raising concerns about the effectiveness of strategies for bed bugs management used in these environments.

Bed Bug (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) Detection in Low-Income, High-Rise Apartments Using Four or Fewer Passive Monitors
TLDR
Results indicate it is especially important to include a bed placement when only placing a few monitors, and future work should compare the combination of cursory visual inspections with various monitor numbers and placements per apartment to determine the most efficient, cost-effective system. Expand
Magnitude and Spread of Bed Bugs (Cimex lectularius) throughout Ohio (USA) Revealed by Surveys of Pest Management Industry
TLDR
Bed bug problems expanded statewide during an 11 y period, with an estimated 100+ treatments in 7 counties in 2005, 45 counties in 2011, and nearly all 88 counties in 2016, which shows that bed bug problems can grow and spread quickly. Expand
Bed Bugs: Prevalence in Low-Income Communities, Resident's Reactions, and Implementation of a Low-Cost Inspection Protocol
Abstract We examined bed bug prevalence in 2,372 low-income apartments within 43 buildings in four New Jersey cities using a combination of resident interviews, brief visual inspections, andExpand
The volatile organic compound profile from Cimex lectularius in relation to bed bug detection canines
Abstract Cimex lectularius are parasitic insects that feed on blood from a human host and are found in homes, hotels, libraries, and airports. Their behavior makes them difficult to prevent, detect,Expand
Canine accuracy in the scent detection and discrimination of invasive fish
TLDR
The scent-detection accuracy of dogs (Canis familiaris) was assessed as they learned to discriminate between water samples from aquaria containing koi carp, goldfish or no fish, at systematically diluted concentrations. Expand
Dynamics of bed bug infestations in three low-income housing communities with various bed bug management programs.
TLDR
IMP programs were more effective in reducing bed bug infestations than traditional pest control services, but many factors contributed to the lower than desired level of reduction in infestation rate. Expand
Using synthetic semiochemicals to train canines to detect bark beetle-infested trees
TLDR
Off season training of two detection dogs on a series of synthetic semiochemicals associated with Ips typographus pest bark beetle infestations of spruce trees allows rapid removal of single, first attacked trees before offspring emergence, thus curbing local pest increase and lowering spread of attacks in the landscap. Expand
A Case Study of Cimex lectularius L. (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) Infestations in an Office Environment
TLDR
Intensive trapping plus limited insecticide dust treatments effectively detected and eliminated C. lectularius in office settings and showed a high level of aggregation up to a 15 meter scale. Expand

Ability of Bed Bug-Detecting Canines to Locate Live Bed Bugs and Viable Bed Bug Eggs
TLDR
A pseudoscent prepared from pentane extraction of bed bugs was recognized by trained dogs as bed bug scent (100% indication) and could be used to facilitate detector dog training and quality assurance programs. Expand

Effectiveness of Bed Bug Monitors for Detecting and Trapping Bed Bugs in Apartments
TLDR
Three active monitors that contain attractants are evaluated: CDC3000, NightWatch, and a home-made dry ice trap and the Climbup Insect Interceptor, a passive monitor (without attractants), was used for estimating the bed bug numbers before and after placing active monitors. Expand
