A deadly insect know as the “kissing bug” has made it’s way to North Carolina, according to the CDC.

The bug has been in headlines lately for popping up around the south, especially in Texas.

It carries a parasite that causes ‘Chagas’ disease.

The CDC says now is a good time to double check around the house for cracks and holes, because they tend to hide under beds and mattresses.

If you find the bug the CDC says do not touch it.

Put a container on top of it and fill it with rubbing alcohol, or freeze it.
