Sniffing For Bedbugs

Bedbug detecting dogDon’t let the bedbugs bite. Well, now, we all may sleep a little bit better at night because bedbugs may be a thing of the past with some sniffing dogs on the case. Dogs are being trained to sniff out bedbugs and termites at the J & K Canine Academy in cooperation with University of Florida’s entomologists. Most of these bedbug-detecting dogs are Brace beagles, but there is also Nudie, a Chinese-crested terrier mix (pictured here). Now, these dogs are more important than ever because there has been a resurgence in bedbugs and are being found in every state and are popping up in hotels and in private homes and even cruise ships. Sleep tight and bug free everyone! We bet Nudie does.
