Sniffer Dogs Eradicating Bedbugs

Fri, 09 May 2008

Leading New York hotels have begun using highly trained sniffer dogs in an attempt to eradicate the alleged returning problem of bedbugs. Heavy powered pesticides such as DDT were previously used to keep bedbugs at bay, but were outlawed due to concerns about the dangers of some of the chemicals used.

Across the whole of New York in 2002, there were just two reported infestations. However, last year, there were nearly 7,000, demonstrating the vast increase in recent years. Therefore, there has been great demand for highly trained sniffer dogs to eradicate the pests. It takes 18 months to train a dog to the sufficient level, and once trained, dogs can cover 150 hotel bedrooms per day.
