Bed Bugs Not a Passing Problem

FAIRFAX, Va. (August 4, 2014) – While they aren't dominating the headlines, incidents of bed bugs are still being widely reported across the country. The small pests are well adapted to traveling and can breed quickly once brought to a home, office or school.

The good news is that pest control companies have new employees who can literally sniff out bed bugs for clients. Specially trained dogs are taught to distinguish the smell of bed bugs and to alert when the pests are present.

Avoiding bed bugs is all about prevention and inspection techniques and education about how they spread. Bed bugs are a serious pest problem because infestations are difficult to eradicate.
