A pest fighter has stepped in to save a vulnerable woman whose house was teeming with insects.
Catherine Bruce, who has a learning disability and is registered as deaf, recently told Tele that she was abandoned because of an infestation in her Greenock apartment.
She accused River Clyde Homes of leaving her to surrender a fortune to try and get rid of the creatures on her own.
Nick Sullivan, a businessman who runs Pestaway in Inverkip, was so shocked to read of her plight that he immediately offered to help.
Inverkip’s father said, “I thought it was a terrible situation and I just wanted to help.
“We had the equipment to do it.”
Catherine had revealed how she had left the problem alone for four weeks.
The bugs started in her kitchen but were soon found in other rooms until they had spread all over her house.
As the days progressed, she was unable to sleep and could not cook in her kitchen.
She turned to River Clyde Homes for help and also tried smoking the apartment herself.
After the Tele contacted Catherine with Nick’s offer, she was thrilled.
She said, “I really appreciate Mr. Sullivan’s help, he saved the day.”
Pest control expert Nick recently founded another branch of his company to help people fight the coronavirus by disinfecting and deep cleaning properties.
He told Tele how he was moved after shielding himself with his son George, a heart transplant patient, after previously losing his daughter Maisie, who was also a transplant patient, to an infection.
