Bed Bug Monitoring
The Merlin Guarantee – our promise to you
We offer our customers a very simple guarantee: We will get rid of bugs efficiently.
For your peace of mind we offer a 30-180 day guarantee depending on the re-infestation profile of the site.
Why bed bug monitoring is key
Merlin offer a bed bug monitoring and maintenance programme to keep infestations completely under control. Our systems have been carefully designed to detect and eradicate bed bugs in the early stages of infestation. This means there is less risk of the problem spreading.
Our detection services are tried and tested
Merlin has developed an innovative scoring system that accurately measures the risk to each site.
We use this system to advise you on what form of detection will work best, whether it be…
- Harborage traps – designed to draw bugs from hiding
- Active monitors –mimicking a human host to target hungry bugs
- Bed Bug detection dogs – our dogs can sweep large hotels and cruise ships in a quarter of the time it takes a human.
Staff training programme
The final part of our programme is to train housekeeping staff.
We’ll train them to pick up on any evidence left by bugs, and will teach them basic bug biology and behavior. This means you can eradicate any future infestations fast.
We also teach staff how to manage service users in the event of an outbreak in order to safely control the situation without risking damage to your reputation or causing service user complaints.
Merlin puts the status of all your pest control measures online for you to monitor remotely over the Internet wherever and whenever you wish.
Here’s how it works:
When we setup you site all of your information is recorded onto the system by means of a handheld computer. You will have secure, password protected access to a complete pest control online reporting and monitoring system. Each subsequent visit generates a fresh set of data from each device, recorded by scanning into the pest control online system.
Over time MerlinOnline builds to give you:
- An instant easy to read site plan of your protection network in a time saving visual format
- An easy to follow audit trail demonstrating how seriously you take protection, the measures you have in place, and how they have performed
- A detailed history of activity — demonstrating your due diligence by recording all the action taken
- Trend analysis — allowing potential risks to be anticipated and preventive measures taken
