For the past few years much of the media’s coverage of bed bugs has been surrounding infestations in hotel rooms. But in reality, bed bugs have moved far beyond hotels in Kansas and surrounding areas. It is not uncommon to find bed bugs in your everyday life since these blood sucking pests have become so deeply embedded in cities across the country and right here in our own backyard. Although they do not transmit disease to humans, bed bugs are still a major nuisance and a hard pest to get rid of.
We recently welcomed Scout, our newest bed bug sniffing canine, to the pest control team at Schendel Pest Services. Scout, a two-year-old pure beagle, was adopted from a family who could no longer have pets. We put him through bed bug detection training to ensure he would sniff out bed bugs with the same, high level of accuracy as Patches and we are happy to report he is ready to get to work!
While some dogs spend the day lounging at home, there’s a new team of dogs who have a very important but very unusual job. Yes, dogs with jobs are a new phenomenon in the pest control industry. To be more specific, we are talking about trained bed bug sniffing dogs. Bed bug dogs are proving to be a quicker and more efficient way to inspect homes and businesses for bed bug infestations.
Bedbugs don't make you sick. But the poisons used to kill them can.
A government study released Thursday found that dozens of Americans have fallen ill from the insecticides, and a North Carolina woman died after using 18 cans of chemical fogger to attack the tiny blood suckers.
