probably the first city the second city we know of in the US (if not everywhere) to have its own bed bug sniffing dog.
Gracie the terrier was acquired from Pepe Peruyero’s canine scent detection training program and will be used to detect live bed bugs or eggs in Milwaukee Housing Authority (public housing) units.
Back in January, we reported that the Seattle Housing Authority was getting a canine scent detection dog to sniff out bed bugs in public housing. (Seattle, you will recall, is also investing in thermal remediation technology.)
Thanks to Doug for the reminder. I confess that after 1,138 blog posts, I am having trouble remembering all the “firsts.” 😉
