Durham, NC – Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control, LLC announced today that team member Scott Hays and his K-9 partner Smoke have been certified by the American Working Dog Association in bed bug detection. Hays and Smoke will work to detect bed bug infestations in residential and commercial facilities so they may be eliminated.

“We are receiving an increasing number of calls for bed bugs throughout North Carolina,” says Phillip Clegg, President of Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control. “These bugs can be difficult to detect and many homeowners don’t realize they have a problem until the infestation has gotten pretty bad. Our bed bug dogs are both certified, meaning that they are able to detect even one bed bug using their keen sense of smell. It’s a very efficient way to diagnose the problem so we can treat it.” Both of Clegg’s dogs and their handlers were trained by Mike Bullock of Bullock’s K-9 Kennels in Greenville, NC. Bullock trains dogs on narcotics, explosives, arson and bed bug detection.

“If you believe you have bed bugs in your home or office, quick verification and treatment can help minimize damage,” adds Clegg. “Individuals should contact a pest professional trained in treating bed bugs if they believe they have an infestation.” Bed bugs feed on blood and cause visible bite marks and itching. They are not known to transmit disease. The bugs hide in dark places, including cracks and crevices; they can travel easily from one place to another on clothing, handbags, luggage, etc.

  1. We offer a Pest Control Maintenance Program following the initial service to help homeowners keep their pest population under control. Unless there is a serious infestation, most homeowner will maintain a quarterly pest control maintenance program at their home to keep pests under control. If there is a serious infestation then Clegg’s would recommend a monthly service for the first 3 to 6 months following the initial service to get the infestation under control and then move to a quarterly maintenance program.

His church had a termite infestation and he couldn’t afford to have it treated right then. Ralph went to school to learn termite eradication and saved his church from a large financial expense. The pest control operations began taking up more of his time and he retired from the ministry to devote all his time to the fledgling pest control business. His son, Phil, joined the business in 1969, and helped to grow the business to its current size. Phil is now the President, and his son, Phillip II, is the Vice President.Call Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control at (888) 558-6089 today to request an inspection of your home.
