Taught by Jeffrey White and other instructors from BedBug Central, this is unique opportunity to learn in an interactive and hands-on environment.  In addition to the educational sessions, there will be a product/services showcase including exhibits from the leaders in the bed bug industry.

The boot camps are sponsored by Dow AgroSciences and Forshaw.
