Perhaps the only good thing to come out the bedbug epidemic are the adorable bedbug beagles. The pups, who are trained to find the pests via similar techniques for finding drugs or dangerous bombs, can be seen as the warning sign that an office or abode is infested, but upscale department store Bergdorf Goodman has one in its Fifth Avenue location just "to be on the safe side".
Inside Edition says that Apollo the bedbug beagle joined the show to go "undercover (and under covers)" for a report on bedbugs: "Apollo accompanies Inside Edition’s I-Squad undercover team to retail stores throughout the city to determine how widespread the epidemic is." Just this past weekend, Niketown closed over bedbugs. The show broadcasts tomorrow (it's 3 p.m. on WPIX).
