LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J.  — BedBug Central and the Pennsylvania Pest Management Association will offer a two-day bed bug boot camp program in Chester County, Pa.

The Pennsylvania Bed Bug Boot Camp is an off shoot of BedBug Central’s BedBug University: Boot Camp. The Pennsylvania Bed Bug Boot Camp will be held on April 4-5, 2012 at the Chester County Intermediate Unit in Downingtown, Pa.

The Boot Camp will focus on the necessary knowledge and skills needed to create, run, or manage a successful bed bug program. The boot camp offers a series of courses that provide in-depth, practical and actionable knowledge regarding pertinent areas surrounding bed bugs and effective treatment.

“This is a unique opportunity for pest control professionals in Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, Delaware and Northern Maryland to learn how to treat for bed bugs in an interactive and hands on environment,” said Jeffrey White, technical director for BedBug Central. “The bed bug epidemic is growing and proper training and information is needed to prevent and treat these pests.”

The boot camp sessions’ will include Bed Bugs 101: Basics of Bed Bug Biology, Bed Bugs 102: Protocol Overview, Bed Bug 201: Tools of the Trade, and Bed Bug 301: The Business of Bed Bugs.

Boot Camp will also focus on the concepts of minimal preparation and the principals of least disruption. This technique will increase productivity by reducing labor and will ultimately reduce costs for pest management industries while increasing the value and convenience for customers.

The traditional 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.
