Can you see with your nose?
Humans at M2 can't see with the noses, but our dogs can! Here is a fun-to-watch YouTube video on the awesomeness of dog noses!
Ok...so dogs have amazing noses, how does this help with bed bugs?
In the above video, the dog was trained to identify cancer using a unique scent. Bed bugs are no different. They have a unique sweet-musty scent that is different from other bugs. Our dogs are trained to run their noses along objects looking for that wonderful sweet-musty smell. When they find it, they tell the handler. If we ask for more, they will point and tell the handler again. Then the good part!!! FOOD! Check out turbo and his amazing nose in the video below....
Man's best friend!
Can you/me/anyone find bed bugs as well as a trained dog and her handler?
Nope, dogs will beat humans every time! We prove this every day in the real world.
