Austin firm featured on ‘Hotel Impossible’

An Austin company will be featured on tonight’s “Hotel Impossible.”

In the episode, Pest Management Inc. uses its trained team of bed bug-sniffing dogs to search for pest problems at a troubled hotel.

“We are proud to be featured on ‘Hotel Impossible’ and proud of the work we do to help hospitality and other businesses thrive,” Pest Management Inc. owner Brian DiCicco said. “Pests can cause problems for every kind of organization and they can quickly ruin a customer’s experience.”

When the trained dogs locate bed bugs, a thermal heat treatment is used to kill the pesky critters without the need for chemical-based treatments.

The “Hotel Impossible” episode marks the second time Pest Management Inc. and its bed bug treatment program have been featured on cable TV. The company was also spotlighted on the National Geographic channel in 2011.

“Hotel Impossible” airs at 9 p.m. on the Travel Channel.
