About Bugsy Braman: Bed Bug Scent Detection Dog:
He is trained to find live bed bugs in hotel rooms, offices, stores, showrooms, movie theaters, houses, apartments or any other business establishment. He is so well trained that he can sniff a bed bug even if there is only one in the room!
When it comes to pest control and extermination, expensive marketing campaigns and national brand names do not ensure effectiveness; knowledge and dedication do.
At Braman, we have been using our knowledge of the conditions that lead to pest problems and pest biology to efficiently and effectively eliminate termites, carpenter ants, bed bugs, cockroaches, rodents, bees and other pests for more than 100 years.
Headquartered in Agawam, MA, Braman has service centers all across southern New England. We differ from many other pest control firms in the exceptional level of training of our management and employees, a number of whom have degrees in biology and entomology. These were the major fields of interest to the founding Lazarus family, as they are for us now at Braman. Our technicians are all licensed, certified, insured, and trained to observe all relevant federal, state, and local regulations pertaining to the services they provide. We take an integrated approach that involves nonchemical treatments, as well as the precise application of the latest and safest chemical methods.
Serving New England since 1890, Braman utilizes state-of-the-art pest control procedures that are the safest available for people, pets and plants.
