Webinar: Understanding Bed Bugs in Schools

For those who may be interested in integrated pest management and how pests and pest control can affect the health of school children, included is information on a webinar that will happen next week.

More schools are having to decide what to do when bedbugs are found in schools.  In a recent study, 41% of pest management professionals indicated that they had treated for bedbugs in schools and day care centers during the past year.

Presentations will describe proactive steps, such as how to plan for bed bugs, and how to manage bed bug hot spots in schools. Please take a moment to register for the webinar
