Are Bed Bugs Taking Over? J&K Canine Academy Answers the Question.

Scent Detection Seminar to aid professionals in search and destroy.

Online PR News – 19-November-2010 – – Ocean City, MD – If you cannot find the bed bugs you cannot destroy them. So what is the answer? Canine scent detection. Connor’s Pest Protection, the leader in pest control techniques, has organized a scent detection seminar by Pepe’s J&K Canine Academy to be held at the Castle in the Sand on November 4th and 5th. Attendees will learn about powerful scent detection techniques and then apply those skills to become NESDCA certified.

The seminar will focus on growing bed bug problems that pest control professionals encounter in the field. In addition, the seminar will teach professionals how to search vehicles, warehouses and clothing stores. Requests for these types of searches are increasing, and yet many pest control professionals do not know the proper protocol for the searches. Because of this, J&K Canine Academy will take attendees through an approved training process and answer any questions related to these searches.

Furthermore, the seminar is going to provide professionals with the opportunity to share their own stories and receive feedback from Connor’s and other attendees. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions, offer advice and give insight into the situations they face at their jobs.

Eddie Connor of Connor’s says this is a timely seminar since scent detection is a critical aspect of bed bug detection. Eddie cites the recent surge in bed bug infestations, 600% in last five years, and mentions the problem has expanded past homes as the bed bugs have made their way onto commercial property. Bed bugs cannot be accurately detected with the human eye, (only a 25% accuracy rate), which is why dogs play such an important role in the detection process.

“J&K Canine Academy is committed to educating pest professionals about bed bug detection using canine scent,” Eddie says. “With the ever-increasing rise of bed bugs, we not only need dogs that are highly trained to find the bed bugs, but pest professionals need to know what they can do to better verify an infestation of bed bugs. J&K Canine Academy is working hard to do just that.”

Eddie also states that Castle in the Sand is the perfect place to hold this seminar. He says, “As one of the premier hotels in Maryland, we are excited to be able to hold our seminar at Castle in the Sand. They are leaders in keeping their hotel protected from bed bugs, using Connor’s Pest Protection to ensure a safe stay for their guests. The hotel’s staff has been very helpful in setting up for the event, and we know it will be a success.”
