Are There Bugs in NC? You Bet!
A lot of insects thrive in North Carolina. From ants to centipedes to spiders, you have probably seen many of the common bugs in the area. Insects are a great food source for birds, snakes and other wildlife, but when they get in our homes or put us at risk of illness or disease, they become more than a nuisance. We recently published an article on the most common bugs in North Carolina. If you missed it, read through and see how many of these bugs you’ve seen!
Bed Bugs in the News
Jason Viar, branch manager of Clegg’s Fayetteville office, was recently interviewed on ABC11 for a segment on bed bugs. These annoying critters were virtually eliminated years ago through the use of harsh chemicals that have since been banned. The latest treatment techniques use thermal heat to kill the bugs.
