LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — Minimal preparation and the principals of least disruption are the concentration points for April’s BedBug University: Boot Camp, which will take place April 17-20, at the BedBug Central headquarters in Lawrenceville, N.J.

The concept of minimal preparation was researched during field observations and demonstrates how limiting the degree of prep work will actually increase the efficacy towards achieving elimination. The principals of least disruption prevent the disturbance of the bed bug’s environment, which in turn limits these pests from dispersing further into the structure while aiding the removal process.

Boot Camp’s focus on minimal preparation will increase productivity by reducing labor and will ultimately reduce costs for pest management industries. This technique also increases the value and convenience for customers.

“Learning about new processes and technologies, including the no prep method, was intriguing. It was one of the main reasons I wanted to come to the boot camp,” said Dena Burg of Northwest Exterminating in Arizona. “The information and expertise shared will be easily integrated into the day-to-day aspects of our bed bug business.”

BedBug University: Boot Camp is a four-day course offered six times per year and is designed to shorten the learning curve of companies that want to increase their bed bug revenues and enhance their bed bug business model. The program examines the most effective and efficient treatment protocols in addition to providing hands-on training with industry-standard tools for bed bug remediation.
