Bug Sweep Service

There are a number of reasons why someone might choose to bug your home or office, but if you suspect it’s happening to you, it can be really disconcerting. Thanks to advances in technology, listening devices have become much harder to find and it can take the keen eye of a professional private investigator, and very expensive TSCM (Technical Surveillance Countermeasures) bug sweep equipment to spot them. Not all private investigators have the training and experience to find listening devices or covert cameras, but our technician has been carrying out bug sweeps for more than 20 years. He definitely knows his job and can advise what sort of devices are available, what sort of listening devices would suit your situation, and how they work. He can then advise how to protect yourself from further listening device attacks.

It’s not just homes that can be bugged either, with cars and even boats able to be monitored by snoopers with visual or audio listening devices. The good news is that a reputable private detective agency will have the skills and the equipment to identify listening device hardware that’s designed to resist detection.

Just be warned – the cost of our equipment, and levels of training, do not come cheap. A starting price is at least $4000 for the smallest of assignments, so please consider this before moving forward. The search for hidden listening devices is a science. 

Understanding Common Places Listening Devices Hide

The thing about surveillance equipment is that it’s usually placed in the areas that people don’t look at – for obvious reasons. A professional private detective will have the experience of knowing where to look, as they know how to think like someone who is surveilling someone else. The fact is that they can be attached to pretty much any object in your home – even if it’s plain sight!

As part of a ‘bug sweep’ service, your friendly neighbourhood private investigator is able to back their knowledge of where bugs are often placed by using specialist equipment to remove all devices in the area. So, whether it’s a business rival or an ex-partner listening in on you, you get the peace of mind of knowing that they’ve all been removed.

At Integral Investigations, we’ve been in the private investigation game for close to thirty years and as a result, we’ve carried out bug sweeps for many clients. It would be fair to say that we’ve found monitoring hardware in the most unlikely of places. In addition to finding spyware in smoke detectors and light fittings, we’ve also identified listening devices in:

  • Ceiling panels
  • Door locks
  • Baseboards
  • Soft furnishings
  • Landline phones
  • Picture frames
  • Throw pillows

The same goes for bugged vehicles too, as GPS trackers can be equally well-hidden. One could easily be slipped under your car, under the bonnet, in the glove box, underneath the spare wheel or even behind your registration plate! Again, with a combination of knowledge and bug sweep equipment, a private detective agency can find them quickly and stop all attempts to watch you.
