Who's Sleeping In Your Bed? Your Dog Can Find Out

Dogs can sniff out explosives, drugs, even cancer - and now there's a new job for the canine nose; dogs detecting bedbugs.

They're crawling with business in New York City, where the bedbug population may soon rival the human population...but as people travel from the Big Apple to the City of Big Shoulders and elsewhere, they take these 6-legged hitchhikers with them. Experts suggest it's only a matter of time before bedbugs hits Chicago. Maybe they have. Looking to start a small business and a new career?

Don't use your real name - but do tell me - have you experienced bedbugs in Chicago?
