Incredibly, just five years ago, calls into our office about Bed Bugs, Kudzu Bugs, Asian Needle Ants and Marmorated Stink Bugs were nonexistent. Fast forward to 2012. The year of the Bug in Belmont, North Carolina. Our Catawba Street office has seen Marmorated Stink Bugs fly inside on sunny days as have we seen the Kudzu Bugs. Asian Needle Ants, which are described by many entomologist as Fire Ants on Steroids have made nests under the pavement on the south side of our office and while we haven’t yet been invaded by Bed Bugs in the office, they are epidemic now and we’ve treated countless numbers of homes in Belmont and Gaston County and treat several houses a week in Charlotte from the hundreds of customers who find us online at www.gastoniapestcontrol.com or   www.charlottebedbugcontrol.us   or   www.pestcontrolcharlotte.net

Below, I posted a picture of the Marmorated Stink Bug that flew in our office and also a video of a kudzu bug which likewise ventured into our Catawba Street office. We have treated several homes for both of these pests and get calls often from panicked homeowners. Both are major agricultural pests but are only an annoying occasional invader in our homes. Neither bite, but I suppose the goats The City of Belmont hired to destroy the Kudzu patch nearby to our office did not get the job done. What will be the next invasive species of pests to invade Belmont North Carolina? We will be ready, providing the safest, most environmentally friendly solutions that are safe for your family, your home, and your pets.

The Marmorated Stink Bug

Our Yorkie-Poo, “Snickers” has passed the dumb dog test and I’m begging the question, “will that dog hunt”? As in “hunt” for bedbugs.

Training a pedigree is one thing but sinking a couple grand in a “designer dog”, (fancy name for a mongrel mutt), is definitely a risk. I’ve worked with Snickers and he seems to be a fast learner. I like that he’s small enough to get up under beds and such and have decided to send him off to get a doggieedumacation and earn his own keep by being our company bedbug detection dog.  If he fails, he’s still cute enough to be the Envirosafe Mascot. Wish us luck!!!!
