Termites are infamous for being difficult to detect, which is why they often aren’t found until significant damage has been done in a property. For this reason, regular termite inspections from a professional pest control company are recommended. At Loyal, we depend upon our K-9 termite detective Hunter, who is trained and certified to sniff out termites in properties.
Hunter has been trained to sniff out termite pheromone secretions, making him highly apt at detecting areas in the property where termites may be infesting.

Benefits of Canine Termite Inspections
Human eyes can only see so much, and termites are known to infest areas inaccessible to humans. Our canine termite inspector Hunter relies on his nose to detect termites.
Some of the many benefits of canine termite inspections include:
- Bed bug dogs detect odors 10,000 times better than humans and use their strong sense of smell to quickly locate termites.
- Bed bug detection dogs move much more quickly and efficiently through the rooms they are inspecting.
- They are especially helpful in large-scale termite inspections, such as in a commercial building.
- By locating specific infested areas, our K-9 Termite Inspections allow for the use of targeted treatments once termites are detected.
Why K-9 Termite Detection Works
Normally, our termite exterminators are able to go into a crawl space under a building and visually see if there is termite activity. However, termite detection is not always that easy. Termites can colonize under a foundation slab or in wall voids. Hunter’s sensory skills are extremely valuable in finding the hiding termites. In fact, he is one of the very few K-9 detectives in America that is skilled in both disciplines!
