It turns out the problem of bed bugs in El Paso may be bigger than you think.
Local pest control companies are being inundated with calls for bed bug treatments, according to the president of the El Paso Pest Control Association, Jaime Lagos. He is even holding a training for other pest control companies on how to get rid of them.
According to Amix Pest Control, bed bugs have been around for hundreds of years, but are now a rising problem in the country because of advancements in transportation, making it easy for the pests to "hitchhike" on humans.
Tonight on NewsChannel 9 at 5, 6, and 10, we'll hear from Amix on what they are doing to prevent the spread of bed bugs here in the Borderland.
