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.

  1. Very Satisfied. I have been dealing with Clegg’s for a couple of years now, and I have to say I am very pleased with the work they have done. I not only have my pest control through them, I also have termite service. I have had my ups and downs, however that is with any company. I called into my local office voiced my concerns, and my problems were taken care of. I would recommend anyone use their services. I have dealt with corporate businesses before. I like that this company is truly family owned, and they take pride in the people they serve.

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.
