GREEN BAY, Wis. -- This pooch isn’t just cute. He can also sniff out bed bugs.

Chester is a two and a half-year-old rescue dog who uses his gift in Wisconsin. A place where bed bugs were virtually unknown until about ten years ago.

"We've seen a 300 percent increase just in bed bug treatments over the last two years," said Jon Sandberg of Sandberg K9 Solutions. “As more and more homes, hotels, public facilities get [bed bugs], the demand for a dog with this service is increasing."

Chester has sniffed his way through residential, property management, hotels, schools, movie theaters, and busses in the Green Bay area.
