Bed bugs

The Evansville, Ind.-based company has become the most recent bedbugFREE member.

| December 3, 2009

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Action Pest Control has become the most recent company approved for bedbugFREE membership.

Action’s enrollment means the company adheres to the guidelines and practices of Bed Bug Central, a Web site devoted to bed bug information and removal methods. Action is a full service pest management firm that services Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois. To learn the latest research and management methods for bed bug removal, the company turned to the expert advice of Bed Bug Central and sought membership with the bedbugFREE network.

bedbugFREE is a network of “like-minded companies sharing the philosophies of Bed Bug Central”. All companies undergo a rigorous screening process overseen by Rick Cooper and research entomologist, Jeff White. Approved companies are listed as a bedbugFREE on Bed Bug Centrals’ website and in turn receive referrals as part of the bedbugFREE network. To date, the approval process and all business leads provided by Bed Bug Central are free of charge.

“Action always seeks to have its methodology approved by respected third parties, such as NPMA’s Quality Pro Green, and now Bed Bug Central. We strive to be recognized among the industry’s elite,” said Kevin C. Pass, president of Action Pest Control.

As a bedbugFREE company, Action Pest Control becomes part of the growing bedbugFREE network of pest management firms approved by Bed Bug Central. Created by Phil Cooper, President of Cooper Pest Solutions and Richard Cooper, vice president and Entomologist for bedbugcentral.com, they provide a wealth of resources, information and products for consumers around the country.

“Action’s bed bug management program is much stronger thanks to bedbugFREE. We received great input from the team at Bed Bug Central that furthered our understanding of the importance of customer education and multi-disciplined service,” said Scott Robbins, technical director for Action Pest Control.
