So much for animals not being allowed in the dorms.
A New York Times article today reveals how two Manhattan exterminators have begun using trained dogs to sniff out bedbugs, and they tell the Times they’ve visited “a big, big university on the West Side.”
The dogs, named Pasha and Ruby, are typically hired by hotels, but some apartments and schools have requested their bedbug-hunting services, including apparently our own fine institution.
The exterminators, Michael Morin and Donald Frey, say they keep the locations of the infestations confidential, but given how readily the pair let slip the Columbia tidbit to a major national newspaper, it’s a wonder no one has entrusted them with any actually important secrets.
