Ladybug vs. Bedbugs: Beagle Sniffs Out Blood Suckers!

So I see this beagle, Ladybug, sniffing around. Pretty cute, right? Well, his task . . . not so cute. This pooch is inspecting an apartment with bedbugs here in San Francisco. Cases of these infestations are on the rise across the country – did you just start feeling itchy for no reason? – and many breeds can sniff them right out.

My quick web search uncovered several companies with pooches for hire (like K-9 Bed Bug Detection Services) to nose around your house to make sure the buggies didn't hitch a ride with you from a recent stay at a hotel or airport. That's one pup I hope to never have to invite into my home!
