The Press-Enterprise, Riverside, Calif., reported on the rise in popularity of canine dogs that are specially trained to detect bed bugs. The article noted that several area companies are using specially trained dogs that sniff out the blood-sucking pests not just inside mattresses and box springs but in upholstered furniture, behind wallpaper, even in electrical outlets and clock radios.

Among the experts interviewed was Greg Baumann, vice president and senior scientist for the National Pest Management Association, who said termite-sniffing dogs have been in use for two decades, but the demand for bed bug dogs is new.

Also interviewed was Mike Masterson, president of Covina, Calif.-based ISOTECH Pest Management. Masterson noted that having a bed bug infestation in one’s home can be a traumatizing experience.
