Amarillo, TX - A bug that transmits a deadly parasite is making its way across Texas, and researchers at Texas A&M University are asking for help to track it.
The insect known as the 'kissing bug' is normally found in Mexico and other parts of Central America, but their presence in Texas is becoming more prominent. That is why scientists are asking citizens across the state to keep an eye out for them.
The kissing bug is a nasty looking insect and it can give the kiss of death in bite form to humans, dogs and other mammals. "It can be fatal," said Dr. Martin Pearson, a veterinarian at Noah's Ark Pet Hospital. "It almost always is."
