Let's be honest. How rude are bed bugs? We're talking about a bug that dines on you while you sleep. At least a wild dog has the common courtesy to let you know you're going to be eaten. Not bed bugs. They wait inside your bed until you're happily dreaming about cotton candy clouds and rides on unicorns. Then, they crawl out of their dark lair and nibble on you like you're some kind of buffet or something.
What's worse is, they have no respect for the role we play in their life cycle. Sure, we may hate being eaten by fleas and ticks but at the end of the day at least they value us. When they see us coming they choose us to be their host and spend most of their days living exclusively on only us.
With bed bugs, we're not even a host. The mattress or the couch is the host! How pathetic is that? Our value is reduced to "snack" status. We're not the altar. We're the sacrifice on the altar!
I think we can all agree that--for no other reason than just how rude these bugs are--we should learn to detect and eradicate them before they feast on us. Fortunately, someone really really smart came up with an idea. Do you remember those wild dogs I mentioned earlier? Someone figured out how to train them to sniff out bed bugs before they even hatch from their nasty little eggs sacks. How awesome is that?
We've all heard of dogs being used to find drugs and explosives. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been using them for years. Dogs have an amazing sniffer. Not only can they be trained to sniff out specific items, they can smell them through luggage, walls and even mattresses. That's right: mattresses. Do you see the connection?
With a canine inspector, a pest technician is able to detect living bed bugs in all stages of development. That means you can locate and destroy these blood-eating bugs before they have a chance to make you their night-time snack. If that isn't awesome, I don't know what is.
If you suspect you have bed bugs or want to make sure you don't, call the experts at Witt Pest Management. Our bed bug dogs are the best--and cutest--in the business. With our superior sniffers, we'll make sure your home or business is safe.
