The Bug Doctor

Little makes Paul Bello more excited than a house with a really bad odor. Where lesser mortals run out in disgust with noses pinched shut, he rushes in to find the source. Mr. Bello, 38, is director of entomology and chief troubleshooter for the Arrow Exterminating Company; one of the largest companies of its kind in the New York metropolitan area. “I only get called in on the tough jobs,” he said, “when a guy has been to a place a few times and there is still a problem.”

Entomologist Paul Bello recently taught students about insects.

They’re creepy, crawly, and kids are crazy about them. That’s why students at Wilson Creek Elementary School are mesmerized when “The Bug Man,” also known as professional entomologist Paul Bello, visits the school each year to educate students about the insects we share our planet with – the good, the bad and the ugly. This year, Bello visited the school on May 21 to give students an up-close and personal look at insects such as live termites and Madagascar hissing cockroaches.
