    Hi,

    Are you upgrading to frogs or getting out of the business?

    Sorry, but I have a patent, trademark, plus any and all copyrights having to do with Bed Bugs and frogs.

    Please chose another name or I'll be forced to have my frog protecting lawyers stomp on your lily pad. =)

    Hi Mr Queen,

    If you would care to provide me with the IP number for your TM I will take it under advisement with my lawyers at Ribbit, Ribbit and Hopoff.

    However until we have verified its existence we will continue to use our methods. At the end of the day we feel that the enhanced efficiency of amphibians will soon be apparent to all.

    Well K greenback, if you think the frogs are good I have the latest in all things bed bugs. My research using turtles for bed bug detection seems to be outperforming some of my best frogs.

    I'm looking to corner this market but I can't do it alone. A partnership is something I think could be very fruitful for the two of us. Let me know if you wanna have a beer and some frog legs one night as we discuss a possible new adventure. Common don't be a frog in a turtle race.

    Reminder of the site's policy on classifieds from the Forum Rules:

    http://bedbugger.com/forum/topic/forum-rules-please-read

    Policy on classifieds

    Even if you are not in the bed bug product/service business, please do not post offers to sell or donate secondhand bed bug-related merchandise. Consumers selling one item (for example, a used Packtite) may post such offers on eBay or Craigslist, and then post a link here in a new thread (once) referring us to it. Going through a site like eBay offers security to buyers and sellers, and it means the transactions take place under the aegis and rules of the relevant site. If you post to eBay or Craigslist but prefer that someone from this site get the item, you may ask them to mention they saw the post here and to give you their username for confirmation.

    Although the poster above is "in the business," he appears to be a "consumer" of bed bug dogs in the sense that he's only selling his two dogs, not marketing them as an ongoing concern.

    For this reason, I decided to allow this post. Remember that transactions in such cases should happen via Craigslist, not our site.

    Questions about the dogs are okay here though.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Mr Queen,

    My legal advisors have said that I should refrain from discussing species specificity with you until an NDA is in place.

    We are more than aware of your work with turtles but so are the world wildlife fund, they are protected by more than just a shell.

    We also have some research from leading etymographers to support out claim of 99% accurate and 50% reliable an the footage is on YouTube to prove it. We have the finest minds in the country on our advisory board so why not come and see then at a Louisiana headquarters (I have it on good authority you can't get decent push puppies north of the Mason Dixson.

    And for Messrs. Greenback and KillerQueen,

    I believe I have the ideal detection animal for bed bugs: bed bugs. Or as my trademark states, Bed Bug Bed BugsTM.

    You see, there's this whole aggregating pheromone business.

    So I paint my bed bugs hot pink (I got that idea from Dr. Potter's recent study on bed bug movements -- PDF), and then I release them and say "Find your friends!" and they go and find some "friends" from among the existing population.

    And so I just have to follow them and they bring me right to harborages.

    Or start new ones. (Nothing is 100%.)

    But the hot pink really stands out!

    However, additional colors will be available for a nominal fee, including stealth black and racing stripes.

    I'm sticking with my bed bug tracking fire ants, suddenly bed bugs don't seem so bad. I tried a bed bug barracuda but they only detected seabed bugs. And as for NoBugs comment "he appears to be a "consumer" of bed bug dogs" that's disgusting and do they taste just like chicken? Good luck with the bed bug painting and don't forget polka dots or perhaps small bulls eyes.

    You're right, Winston, I walked right into that one!

    Instead of painted on bull's eye targets, could we get ticks to bite the bed bugs? Just curious.

    We will have a sign up sheet shortly but are thinking of launching this via crowd source funding in the style of kickstarter and a social media spam bomb and maybe an appearance of Dr Oz (since we now have something to deal with his "jumping" bedbugs).

    The training program is working well as the bedbugs become the food reward as well as part of the control strategy. In fact it is working so well we may even hire them out as "green" bedbug control.

    I will try and get some footage on YouTube this week.

    I wouldn't recommend crowd source funding. Joint venture with angel investors and confidentiality agreements are the way to go. Haven't you watched shark tank (I watched it for 10 minutes once).

    Some items on programs like shark tank are not about resolving problems or creating vetted products but about marketing and ROI.

    Hand painted with a brush or airbrushed on? I'm a sucker for a hotrod so I'm all in with the racing stripes.

    I'll paint some with Airborne Division parachute symbols for you, John!
