LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — Breda Pest Management of Atlanta, GA., is the most recent company approved for bedbugFREE membership. Breda Pest Management joins an expanding national network of pest management firms committed to the guidelines and practices of BedBug Central.

Breda Pest Management (BPM) has provided the Metro-Atlanta area with pest control services since 1973. As leading pest management provider in Atlanta, the family-owned company sought to become bedbugFREE for the third party verification on the quality of their services.

“We wanted to make sure our treatment methods were in par with the latest advances in the industry,” said Matt Breda of BPM. “With a company like BedBug Central that has the resources to evaluate and test various treatment methods, we realized it was imperative that we became bedbugFREE approved.”

bedbugFREE is a network of “like-minded companies sharing the philosophies of BedBug Central”. All companies undergo a rigorous screening process overseen by research entomologists Rick Cooper and Jeff White. Approved companies are then listed as bedbugFREE on BedBug Central’s website and in turn, receive referrals as part of the bedbugFREE network.

BedBug Central was created in response to inaccurate information available to pest management professionals treating bed bugs and consumers faced with bed bug issues. Their website serves as an information resource for professionals and consumers regarding bed bug products, research, prevention and treatment methodology.

As a bedbugFREE approved company, Breda Pest Management becomes a part of the growing network of pest management firms committed to BedBug Central treatment methods.

“BedBug Central is widely known as one of the leading sources for information on bed bugs. Being approved by BedBug Central qualifies us as being a company that has established treatment methods that are superior in our industry,” said Breda. “When you are recognized for your treatment methods and in this case bedbugFREE approved, it qualifies us as being a leader in the bed bug industry. “

Companies seeking to accelerate the bedbugFREE approval process may attend BedBug University. BedBug University is a four-day course designed to shorten the learning curve of companies that want to increase bed bug revenues and enhance their bed bug business model.
