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!

I feel like I should get MY beagle involved in this. If there is a bug ANYWHERE in the house, she'll sniff it out. And then she eats it. She can also sniff out grubs in the grass, dig em up.. and yup... eat those too.
