Sniffing out bedbugs

Meet the dogs of war - the war against bedbugs, that is.

Radar the beagle and Taz the Australian kelpie are part of a crack team of sniffer dogs sweeping apartments and hotel rooms across the city to combat an infestation that has reached plaguelike proportions.

The animals are specially trained to root out the pesky, blood-sucking insects, which nest in mattresses, upholstery and other furniture.

Can that dog sniff out other larger parasites? We have a real big pink parasite sucking the blood of constituents in Maspeth, Middle Village, Glendale and Ridgewood.

It's called Councilrapist Dennis Pee Gallagher.
