“Thirty years in a row, we’ve been lighting the bug for the holidays, and the way we like to look at it is, other places like — New York City has the Rockefeller tree. Well, in Rhode Island, we got a big blue bug. There’s nothing better,” said Brian Goldman, CEO of Big Blue Bug Solutions.

The giant termite will shine Interstate 95 through Christmas.
