And what’s the best way to get rid of bed bugs? One company swears by their method: specially trained dogs.
New Jersey-based Action Termite and Pest Control is putting canine’s incredible sniffers to work in finding the hard-to-eradicate pests. And while humans are only about 30% accurate in finding bed bugs, dogs are 98% accurate–and they’re faster!
The dogs work with handlers to alert to bed bug infestations, which can cause allergic reactions, welts, and property damage.
According to their Web site:
“Certified Bed Bug Dogs Sarah and Rex are not pets, they are an invaluable part of the Action Team, and as such are treated with the love and respect they deserve. Amazingly, they seem unerringly eager to do their jobs, finding an obvious sense of gratification in what they do, all the while needing only the praise and love of the handlers to fuel them forward.”
Wow, is there anything these amazing animals can’t do?
