BedBug Central and the New England Pest Management Association will offer a two-day bed bug boot camp program in Massachusetts.
LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — As bed bugs spread across the nation, BedBug Central will travel to help prepare pest professionals. BedBug Central will collaborate with the New England Pest Management Association to offer the New England Bed Bug Boot Camp to educate professionals in the tri-state area.
