A pest control company had their work cut out for them when they discovered an army of bugs had infested an owner’s bed.

Rory McCarty, 50, is the owner of Bug Boys Pest Control, but just because he is at the top, doesn’t mean he doesn’t like to get his hands dirty.

While out on a call in Maryland on July 17, Rory saw a sight that would make your skin crawl, as while looking underneath a mattress, his crew uncovered a swarm of bed bugs running amuck that shocked even the 25-year veteran.

Unluckily for the owner of the mattress, the infestation had spread to their whole home, as when looking through the cushions and chairs in the room, Rory discovered hundreds of more bed bugs crawling about.

Rory said: “Bed bugs can be one of the most difficult and expensive bugs out there to get rid of.

“I’ve been doing this for 25 years and it still amazes me seeing bad infestations, but I still get very excited like it’s the first time seeing them because we’re really good at what we do.”
