Webinar: Which Came First? The Bed or the Bug? Bed Bugs 201
May 9, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
As bed bugs hitchhike across the country, they increasingly find their way into school residence halls, childcare centers, and multi-family dwellings. This webinar will touch on our history with bed bugs and explore in detail recent improvements in bed bug detection, monitoring, and control technologies.
This webinar’s presenters will discuss the importance of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to bed bugs and the latest control strategies for a variety of sensitive environments. IPM is an approach that uses a hierarchy of practices, including education, pest exclusion, sanitation, biological controls, mechanical methods, and chemical options, to reduce unnecessary pesticide exposure while providing sustainable bed bug control.
This webinar will teach you about what you should and should not do when dealing with bed bugs, issues you should be aware of and next level IPM tactics for bed bug management in your community. It will also provide you with suggestions for both interviewing pest management professionals and setting expectations for their services.
