OAK PARK, MI (WXYZ) - Sadie, a 5-year-old Beagle mix, is a proud bed bug hunter who works for food. And she's part of the growing team of K-9 detectives at Pronto Pest in Oak Park.
Specially trained to detect live bed bugs, Sadie's owner, Steve Alcala, says she is about 98-percent accurate. Humans looking for bed bugs reportedly detect the critters with a near 40-percent accuracy rate.
And with the rise in bed bug awareness and detection, Alcala has added to his K-9 team of bed bug hunters with Molly, a 3-year-old Beagle mix, and a 2-year-old pure Beagle named Gracie.
Beagles make great bed bug hunters because of they are small and can sniff in small spaces.
