Information about The Bug Squad Answers Community

The Bug Squad has a community driven question and answer forum (click here to view) that helps people get answers for a variety of pest control questions. In addition to questions asked by visitors to this area, The Bug Squad has also set up two user accounts (namely, faqmaster and bugexpert) that cover a number of frequently asked questions that have been asked in the past. These user accounts are involved in creating a number questions on this QnA forum (usually faqmaster) and providing accurate, original (100% unique) answers (usually bugexpert) in a conversational, story driven manner. In other words, while its not always the case, the stories (not the actual solution or treatment accuracy) surrounding the questions and answers that are posted by faqmaster and bugexpert (this does not apply to any other members) are completely fictional and simply done to improve user engagement and promote an increased pleasure in readability.
