Bed Bug and Termite Sniffing Dogs
Bed bugs have become more common in the Charlotte area. For this reason Charlotte bed bug control is a service that is growing in demand. Killingsworth uses a combination of bug sniffing dogs heat treatment. Our Charlotte bed bug treatment doesn't start until one of our dogs have evaluated the situation.
Bandit aka "Mr. K" is the senior member of our K-9 team. He has been on the job with us since he was one year old in 2007! Bandit has single-handedly put thousands of homes in the charlotte area under a termite damage warranty as well as calmed the fear of bedbugs for hundreds of homeowners! His favorite word is "outside" and he loves to be lazy on the weekends.
Lady is a Jack Russell terrier mix. Lady was rescued from the pound by Tampa, Florida's K-9 Academy where she originally received her scent detection training. She has been a bed bug/termite detection K-9 with Killingsworth Environmental since 2009 and is currently working in the Charlotte area. She spends her time off residing in a small town in South Carolina with her handler, Kendell Alexander and his family.
Bella is a fox-terrier mix. Bella was rescued from the Humane Society where she originally received her scent detection training. She has been a bed bug/termite detection K-9 with Killingsworth Environmental since 2008 and is currently working in the Charlotte area. Bella enjoys her day at work by training, detecting bed bugs or termites at someones home, and listening to sports radio in the car with he K-9 handler Sonny. Her time off at work is spent with her handler at his home in Charlotte, NC.
Wishbone, is the newest member of Killingsworth's K-9 Scent Detection team.
We call him "Special-K" because unlike all our other dogs,
he only alerts for live bed bugs and viable eggs. Wishbone,
along with his handler, Matt Chaney, are NESDCA (National
Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association) certified.
Which means they both have passed field tests by the association
to ensure the highest standards for Entomology Scent Detection
Canines are held. Wishbone is a male Jack Russell Terrier
and has lots of energy! When his handler says it's time
to work, he loves to do a good job and find his "B's"
(bed bugs). He is a sweet dog that loves children and
gets along with other dogs. After a rewarding day at work,
Wishbone is what you call, "Dog Tired"!
