K9 Hunter and K9 Bugsy both deserve Employee of the Month for the first two months of 2019. This year started with a bang and the k9 teams worked every Saturday in Jan. doing large volume office spaces. The K9 team inspected no less than 600 cubicles and offices over the course of Jan and Feb...and the K9s found bed bugs.
K9 Hunter is being recognized as employee of the month for once again doing her job! She was in an senior living apartment that had been treated for known bed bug activity. Once the mattress was lifted up, K9 Hunter swept the wood bed frame and wood slats, she alerted at the foot of the bed. Upon her alert those wood slats were unscrewed and lifted....bed bugs suddenly exposed to light went scrambling. Thanks to K9 Hunter we did not have to disassemble each peice of the bed to find the survivors from the treatment, Good Girl K9 Hunter!!!
K9 Hunter and K9 Bugsy continue to work as an efficient team completing 157 apartments in two days. These were slow and detailed k9 inspections in each unit so the facility could know exactly which apartment had bed bugs. K9 Hunter and K9 Bugsy are being recognized as employee(s) of the month, once again, for their stamina and team work. Team work makes the dream work.
K9 Hunter is being recognized as employee of the month for finding ONE bed bug on a couch. The Handler and a pest control technician turned the couch on it's side to do a visual for a post treatment inspection. They found only dead bed bugs and shells. K9 Hunter was deployed to ensure the lack of finding by the humans was correct. K9 Hunter ran her nose only half way the couch before she stopped and quickly alerted. The technician got on his knees and looked again and there was one bed bug tucked under the piping. We are so proud of her. Good Girl K9 Hunter!!!
K9 Bugsy is being recognized as employee of the month for finding bed bugs in a recliner chair that the handler and pest control technician could not locate. The team was searching a memory care facility whom recently experienced an outbreak of bed bug activity in several rooms. The pest control treated all the rooms and the K9's job was to make sure there were no survivors. And K9 Bugsy did his job like a pro. The recliner chair was in a room thought to be clear and free of bed bugs but K9 Bugsy knew better. It took the humans 10 minutes to find what K9 Bugsy smelt in 25 seconds.
