SAMMY_POSTEnergetic, rambunctious, dedicated and happy! These are a few words which describe the K-9 bed bug division here at 5 Star Environments. One of the star players for that division is Sammy. Sammy is a golden labrador retriever  who was specifically trained to identify bed bugs through scent.

Since we tend to focus a lot on green pest management, having a bed bug detection dog like Sammy is always a plus for 5 Star.  Sammy helps our technicians find out where bed bug activity is located. A dog smell can detect bed bugs in their various life cycle phases such as eggs, nymphs and then lastly adults.

What’s also great about having Sammy as well as our other bed bug dogs,  Bella ( German Shepard) and Curly (Poodle) is that they are friendly as well. This makes for a calm, cool and less stressful inspection for the possible client.
