PEORIA -- The drought is bringing out more bugs this year, and it's boosting business for exterminators. Ted Kenny is an exterminator.

He's been on the job more than 30-years and has never had so many calls. Bugs are coming out because of the hot summer and mild winter, which is something Kenny loves.

"We've never been this busy. We can thank the man for all these bugs," he says.

He says expect the problem to get worse in September. More bugs will try to get inside as the weather cools off.
