Chagas disease is a deadly, inflammatory virus in Bolivia passed by a bug known as the vinchuca. These infected beetles live homes in the mud walls and thatched roofs. Treating the home with insecticide is an easy, quick way to kill the beetle and prevent more from taking residence in the home, saving families' lives by eliminating the threat of Chagas disease.
