Mr. Willie is our beagle that has been trained in an accredited facility that also trains bomb dog and drug dog teams for the United States government. He has received strict training at the facility as well as daily training with our team.
Willie is able to locate bed bug eggs, nymphs, and adult bugs. Our team of the handler and Willie are uniquely trained and certified together to ensure that the we get the most accurate results. Although not always possible, our team will make every effort to verify the presence of bed bugs by visual inspection after the dog alerts to their scent.
The chief advantage of using Willie is his incredible ability to smell eggs that are not visible to the human eye or to detect bugs/eggs/nymphs even when they are hiding in cracks and crevices where they can't be seen.
