Whether "organized" or not, I am still dealing with clutter. And that is ok as long as I have access from both sides.
It is hard to see in this picture, but I did not have access to the walls of the room. Sniffing requires that my nose has access to all things to be sniffed at. Bugs may be hiding behind the walls, so I need to sniff close to the walls and the outlets to detect them.
I use my high-tech nose to sniff out bed bugs: HIGH_TECH because I have 200 millions sniffing cells compares to YOUR measly 5 millions.
I may be a regal beagle but I am not SuperBeagle! So please, be nice and help me out.
This week, we have been booked solid with jobs in Peabody, Newburyport, Rockport, Chestnut Hill and Needham.
We were on our way back home past the last Framingham exit on the Pike before 495 yesterday at 3:30 PM when we got a call from a luxury hotel in Boston, asking us to conduct an inspection of 15 floors "now": bedrooms, housekeepers' carts, trash rooms and the loading dock that still was holding some of the linen carts a truck had recently delivered. Unfortunately, the hotel got notice a bit late that some of the linen carts may be infested with bed bugs. They had already distributed the linens to the housekeepers on several floors. So we had to turn around and conducted the inspection until late that evening.
Congrats go to our partners, Nicki and Malamar who were very good sports in conducting this search late that day after 2 jobs already performed since the early morning. They did a fantastic job. Best employees I ever had!
Malamar taking a nap after a canine bed bug inspection job in Allston today. A multi-units apartment complex, basically rented out to college students. Ah! the days of College. Long gone, so much fun indeed. But I certainly do not remember living in such disastrous, messy, cluttery, dirty conditions. Especially the kitchen area.
Oh well! Malamar is perfect for this type of inspection job. She just follows my lead and sniffs out everywhere and everything. She was not too distracted by a cat that was running loose in one of the units. Genrally, she would go wild at the sight or smell of a cat. And another unit has a dog in it.
Kudos to Malamar who just behaved.
Off to Carlisle, MA for yet another residential bed bug inspection. These people were helping their sisters move out and into a new apartment. And found out she had had a bed bug infestation. So now they want to know if they brought those great hitchhickers back into their home. I get a lot of these types of requests. Off we go, Nicki and Malamar and I...
