Clegg’s Acquires Trained Bed Bug Detection Dogs

Durham, NC – Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control, LLC announced the acquisition of two trained bed bug detection dogs. These dogs work with trained pest professionals to detect bed bug infestations so they may be eliminated.

Bed Bug Detection Dog - Smoke“Bed bugs had been almost unheard of in the U.S. for decades,” says Phillip Clegg, President of Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control. “Over the past two years, there has been a resurgence of the bugs. We see stories in the news on a daily basis where the bugs have infested businesses or government buildings. We’re also getting calls every day from homeowners after they or their children are waking up with bites from the critters. While our pest technicians are trained to identify bed bug infestations, these two bed bug detection dogs can do it faster and more efficiently (Smoke is pictured to the left).” Bed bugs feed on blood, and their bites can cause itching. They are not known to transmit diseases. Bed bug dogs have been trained to identify the bugs based on their scent.

“Unfortunately, bed bugs can easily travel from place to place, making it harder to control their spread,” adds Clegg. “Individuals need to be aware of the indicators of bed bugs and contact a pest professional if they believe they have an infestation.” Clegg notes that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission filed deceptive advertising charges earlier this month against companies that claimed to have an all-natural bed bug remedy. “While it’s nice to think there is a proven ‘do it yourself’ solution to treat bed bugs, they can be difficult to eradicate. We recommend calling someone with solid experience treating bed bugs.”
