Bed Bugs

Thorn’s Best Friends

Our highly trained k-9's seek out those pesky bed bugs.

For over 5 years, we’ve been using highly trained bed bug dogs to get to the bottom of bed bug problems.

GET TO KNOW OUR BED BUG DOGS

Bed bugs are cryptic and sometimes difficult to find.

Thorn bed bug dogs are specially trained to sniff out bed bugs in hard to find places. Because they are so helpful in detecting hidden bed bug harborages, our canine teams are an important tool and they also allow us to give our clients the best bed bug inspections possible.


Meet our awesome bed bug dogs

Missy

Missy, our rat terrier mix, is our smallest dog. She is also a total sweetheart and loves her work. Check out the video above to see Missy doing what she does best!  

Webster

Webster is definitely a workaholic. He is incredibly driven as well as a very vocal dog. We often have to slow him down because he loves working and wants to keep moving!

Radar

Radar was our first dog and worked in the field until he was 15 years old. Now Radar is retired and lives with his handler, Kevin Thorn, ACE.
