Industry Events

NPMA has partnered with the American Hotel and Lodging Association, the National Apartment Association, the Association of College and University Housing Officers International, and the U.S. EPA’s Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program to deliver a series of workshops across the country to educate property and facility managers on how they can effectively respond to the threat of bed bugs.

FAIRFAX, Va. - Last year saw an unprecedented spike in the resurgence of bed bugs, with one in five Americans reporting they have had an infestation or know someone who has encountered bed bugs at home or in a hotel, according to a survey by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). 

In response, NPMA has partnered with the American Hotel and Lodging Association, the National Apartment Association, the Association of College and University Housing Officers International, and the U.S. EPA’s Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program to deliver a series of workshops across the country to educate property and facility managers on how they can effectively respond to the threat of bed bugs. 

From identifying bed bugs to inspection techniques to public relations issues and legal ramifications, NPMA has gathered nationally-recognized experts to provide management tips, both preventative and corrective, to help these groups make informed decisions and stay out of the newspaper – and the courtroom.
