Switch Over – ★★★★★

I’ve used a few different pest control providers in Halifax, and BBD services is without a question the best. Johnny came and identified all holes, filled them all, communicated well with tenants, and we saw results in pest (mouse) reduction almost immediately. The on the contract end, Brett is highly professional and ensures pets are taken into consideration. If you’re with someone else, switch over.

Cannot Recommend BBD Enough – ★★★★★

To say that I am overjoyed that we found and hired BBD is the understatement of the century. We hired two other companies who used steam and chemicals over the course of a month, and the bugs were still biting our tenants (including their four children) on a nightly basis. From the moment I called Brett (in tears) – I knew we were on our way to a solution. He scheduled a canine visit the next morning and had the house treated the following day. Finally, the house and the beautiful family living there were bug free. The level of professionalism, transparency, efficiency, and sheer care that Brett and Brian conduct themselves with is astounding. From letting you witness the dogs work, to allowing you on site during the treatment – so you know what’s going on in your home – I can not recommend BBD enough. Please don’t waste your time getting quotes from other pest control companies. They may give you a cheaper quote, but it won’t fix your problem. Heat remediation was the only thing that worked for us, and we were bug free 48 hours after my first call to BBD.

Knowledgeable, Professional and Helpful – ★★★★★

Jonathan Tucker was very knowledgeable, professional and helpful to us, with his inspection today! We will very gladly invite him back to our home for future inspections and assistance. He was very patient with our many questions and showed his knowledge and experience, with the answers he gave! My husband and I were nervous about the inspection, but Jonathan put us at ease and was very helpful with his suggestions. We look forward to dealing with him over the next few months!

Absolute Pleasure – ★★★★★

Never used a pest service before but with great Google reviews I contacted the owner! Owner was great very responsive, we chatted through texting which was better for me! He was able to schedule me in quickly. I used them for getting rid of the spiders in the basement mainly & some on the main floor! Jon Tucker was an absolute pleasure! He got rid of all the spiders & any I seen to ask him to get for me, he was super nice about & got it with a great attitude! He was nice & professional, talked about how to help prevent them from come in & what I can do! I DEFINITELY recommend them to anyone who’s looking for a pest service, they are a great team!

The Problem Was Impossible To Manage Myself – ★★★★★

Having bedbugs was one of the worst experiences in my life. When I realized that the problem was impossible to manage myself I turned to the internet for professional help. As a cancer survivor, it was difficult to choose a company as chemicals were consistently recommended – but then I found Bed Bug Detectives….. The dogs zeroed in with shocking accuracy allowing Pamela, Brian and Kaylah to quickly eradicate and advise without chemicals. Besides integrity & experience this team holds the exceptional ability to show compassion and hold discretion for their very vulnerable clients.

I Always Learn Something New – ★★★★★

My experience with Brian and his team of dogs has been amazing. I always learn something new from Brian. Every time I see the dogs working it still blows my mind. I even make sure I have treats for Red/Dot/Duke for a job well done! I highly recommend BBD.

Dogs are Absolutely Remarkable – ★★★★★

We have nothing but admiration for Pamela and Brian. Not only are they efficient and thorough, but also compassionate and discreet. Their dogs are absolutely remarkable. I would strongly recommend them to anyone!

– Peter, Halifax

Hard Workers – ★★★★★

Thank you for providing the Maritimes with a non-chemical treatment option. As far as I know, you guys are the only ones with thermal treatment and it is at a reasonable price. I slept better these past couple nights after having the canine inspection done; I can tell you guys are hard workers, and put your all into this business. Your dogs are very well trained and it’s amazing to see!

Simply Amazing – ★★★★★

We had a suspicion we had bugs. Immediately I Googled and one of the first companies that popped up was Bed Bug Detectives. What drew me to them was that they specialized in bed bugs. I figured they knew what they were doing. Let me tell you, they definitely did!

They were discreet, compassionate, and so knowledgeable and informative. Not to mention the dogs they used were simply amazing! Bed bugs are a living nightmare but these guys made it soooo much better! I HIGHLY recommend them if you’re ever in this unfortunate situation.
