Atlanta bed bug professional Paul Bello has become a valued member of our forums, joining other bed bug experts like Lou Sorkin, David Cain (of Bed Bugs Ltd.), John Furman (Killer Queen), Winston O’Buggy (not his real name) and Sean Rollo (of the Bed Bug Resource), just to mention a few of the usual suspects.

Paul has asked us to share the following articles with readers, and we’re glad to oblige.  Most are by Paul but on a few he has collaborated with Lou Sorkin or Lynn Frank.

Thanks to the authors and the publishers (who have in a few cases allowed us to directly host the articles here as noted below).

Enjoy!

Can not seem to download the first two articles – Toolbox and What’s Really Working Part I and II. Sheree

Hi Sheree,

Those links are all to PDFs. They are working on my end.

Check your download folder to see if the PDFs are there. You need Adobe Reader or another program which reads PDFs.

I’m a big fan of Lou Sorkin and a customer as well. I order live bed bugs from him for my business, The Winnipeg Dog, to train my bedbug sniffing dog, Patches. I believe that early detection is key to preventing the spread of bed bugs. A properly trained scent detection dog is the most effective method for early detection and will save you money and give you peace of mind in the long run. There is not enough awareness and support for these dogs. Thank you Lou for supplying the bed bugs that keep my bed bug sniffing dog trained!

Hi Valerie,
You’ll be glad to know Lou reports his colonies survived Tropical Storm Sandy.
