Company creates new entity, Accurate Canine Detection, to better serve customers

NEW YORK — BHB Pest Elimination has purchased its first bed bug detection dog, a miniature pincher-terrier mix named Bolt. Bolt was purchased from Bill Whitstine of Florida Canine Academy.

While cute and friendly when not working, Bolt gets right to work when brought into buildings.

To best suit the needs and demands of its customers, BHB has set up its new canine detection service as a new company, Accurate Canine Detection. Michael Broder, manager of BHB, said the company’s goal was to couple expertly trained dogs with extensive pest knowledge to provide the most thorough inspections.
