Bed Bug Infestation Leads to Furniture Drive for Needy

Clegg's Collects Furniture to Help Needy FamiliesDurham, NC – Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control, LLC announced today that the team in its Greenville office is collecting new and gently used furnishings for families in need who have lost items due to bed bug infestation. All donated items will be inspected by Clegg’s trained bed bug detection dogs before being given to the families.

“While we can often treat home furnishings to kill all the bed bugs, there are cases when the infestation is severe – for instance, the bugs have gotten inside a torn mattress or sofa – where it is almost impossible to eliminate the problem,” says Tony Dobbs, a pest control and bed bug detection specialist and handler of bed bug dog, Rambo. “We have worked with several families who lost upholstered furniture and didn’t have the money to replace it. As a team, we talked about the issue and decided we would collect things like mattresses, sofas, and chairs, verify they were bed bug free, and then donate them to these needy families.” Those interested in donating should contact Tony Dobbs at 919-632-2205 or email him. The Clegg’s team will pick up items donated in the Greenville area.
