I’m Thomas Ballantyne with Bulwark
Exterminating. This is A.J. Richards with K-9 Bed Bug Inspectors. Yes. And it s K-9BedBugInspectors.com.
We have in front of us live bed bugs. inspected yesterday.
A.J. actually does inspections for bed bugs with his dogs. His dogs have been trained
to sniff out bed bugs. He hasn’t been fed for two or three
weeks, and you’ve got to keep him alive so you can continue to train your dogs. Yep.
Yep. That’s what all these little vials are for. So, at any rate, I know when you go into
these houses, you’ve got to be a little freaked out, you know, thinking you might be able
to pick some of these up with your shoes Yeah. or what not. Yeah, always, always. So, I mean,
I’ve got to be very careful, not only myself, but my dogs Right. because they hide in their
fur, that kind of thing. So, we’ve got to be real cautious that we don’t take them
home. I’m, I’m, I can tell you that my wife wouldn’t
be satisfied with living conditions if I brought these guys to the house. *Laughs.*
You don t want to do a video on how fast a home gets infested. Right. So, in my infinite
wisdom, I decided to recommend to A.J. that he protect himself. And I believe this will
do it. This is bug repellent. Nothing fancy, but Over the counter, typical stuff. This one
doesn’t have any DEET in it. This is a fragrance-free, Picaridin is the active ingredient. So, what
We’re going to do, since this guyís ready to feed, typically if you put him on your
arm, he’d immediately begin to feed, Iím going
to spray my arm down with this, let it dry, and then we’re going to put it on my arm
and see if he actually will try to feed.
so we re going to put him right there, and he should go right to it. So, if he keeps
moving, then he’s probably trying to avoid the spray, I would say, because anytime I’ve
done it, instantly. And we’ll see on your other arm if that holds true. Yeah, he’s
not biting. Oh, oh! Oh, just kidding. *Laughs*
Nothing. Actually, when he bites, you can’t even feel it, right? Because they inject
their Right, the saliva on the tip of their little sucker has a little anticoagulant,
so the blood flows freely and an anesthetic so you don t feel it. Oooh, it kind of tickles
actually. Yeah. But, uh, yeah, it looks like he s trying to avoid, avoid your arm. Shall
we see what happens on the other one? Yeah. I, I’m pretty happy with not being bitten
right now, so speculation would be that they’re just avoiding it. Okay.
I really don’t want to do this right now. I really don’t want a little vampire stuck
in my arm. Look at that, dude. There you go. Ah! Seriously. Oh! Straight to eating. Straight
to eating. Uh! Okay, you can take him off now. Ah! You can’t even feel him. You got
I know! I know! Man, I just don’t like him sitting there. Thomas, you’ve got to let
him fill up.
No, look at that dude, this is gross! You Can’t, just think, its like a mosquito,
No! Yeah. You’ve got to let it I don’t like
mosquitoes. I’ll squash it right now. Can I slap it real
quick? No, I need him. Are you done? Okay. Yeah, I’m done. Dude, I was done five seconds
ago. Ah, come on! Thanks. That was pretty nasty. I didn’t like having that on my arm
one bit. I noticed. Alright, at any rate, I’m a happy camper. Go buy some
today. I think that’s a wrap. See you guys. That’s a wrap.
Check back in sometime.
