MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Wil-Kil Pest Control announced the arrival of its second bed bug dog, a beagle named Daisy.

Daisy is joining forces with Max, Wil-Kil’s first bed bug dog, who joined the company in 2009. Wil-Kil's bed bug service involves the use of bed bug canines in conjunction with the company's sustainable heat treatment services.

“Since obtaining Max, our first bed bug canine in 2009, our bed bug services have increased by 75%. The
resurgence of bed bugs over the past year has dramatically increased the demand for bed bug treatment services
in our markets. We are finding bed bugs not only in residences, but in movie theatres, retail stores, hospitals,
hotels and businesses. We have obtained our second bed bug canine, Daisy, to more effectively meet this
growing demand,” said Randy Allen, regional manager of Wil-Kil.

“Bed bugs are a year-round national problem, due primarily to an increase in global travel and difficulty in
proper treatment methods. A bed bug canine can save customers time and money because our dogs will detect
the bed bugs within minutes, versus hours with the human eye,” said Allen. “Once the bed bugs are detected by
Max or Daisy, one of our heat remediation specialists will treat the bed bugs with our heat treatment process,
which can be done within 24 hours.”

Wil-Kil obtained Daisy from J&K Canine Academy based in High Springs, Florida in December 2010.
