Like the legendary sleuth for whom he's named, Sherlock the beagle can detect foul play from minimal clues. The culprit is typically bedbugs, which the certified detection dog tracks down for Nose Bed Bugs. In residential and commercial spaces alike, Sherlock tracks down the cimex lectularius and its viable eggs at low infestation levels and in difficult locations such as laundry piles, heating vents, and bookcases. If Sherlock stumbles upon the unwelcome parasites, the Nose Bed Bugs team can refer clients to trustworthy exterminators to clear out the infestation, rather than bigger bedbugs to scare away the current ones.
