On our team, every bed bug dog has been trained to alert only to live bed bugs and their eggs, not to other insects. As described above, we frequently use other insects and scents (including carpet {dermestid} beetles, lady bugs, cockroaches, food and rodent scents) as controls in our training, as they are commonly found in residences and offices. Our dogs do not alert to these bugs or other scents.
