Protocols for the Prevention and Control of Bed Bugs: Inspection Mobile App

A thorough inspection is required in any unit where bed bugs are suspected. The inspector will look for large and small insects, cast skins and fecal spotting. Because of the feeding habits of bed bugs, they are most commonly found in the bedroom but infestations can occur anywhere, especially living rooms, laundry rooms, closets and bathrooms. Where available, bed bug detecting dogs have been useful in locating bug infestations. The Protocols for the Prevention and Control of Bed Bugs: Inspection mobile app includes an Interview, the first step in an inspection should be an interview of residents to determine possible sites of infestation, tools of inspection and initial Inspection. When using GoCanvas on an iPhone, iPad, Android or BlackBerry device, it is possible to save work in process without having to submit the collected data.
