A strange insect was causing a stir in New Glasgow today. 

Resident Jason Desmond found what appears to be a three-inch long giant water bug,  commonly known as toe-biters, that was found near his property. Desmond said it was captured after scratching at the front door.

The bug's  bite is considered one of the most painful that can be inflicted by any insect; however, although excruciatingly painful, it is of no medical significance.
