Due to the increase in bed bugs, The Michigan Pest Management  Association (MPMA) and the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) have teamed up to inform the public about bed bugs. They have released two PSA’s to notify the public about these pests.  MPMA became involved in this project because the association believes its duty is to educate the pubic on the facts about bed bugs.
