FAIRFAX, Va. — Last winter, NPMA adopted the Best Management Practices (BMPs) for Bed Bugs. These have been modified twice since last winter; once for canines and a second time to adjust the language relating to heat treatments.  When the BMPs were first adopted, we agreed that they would be reviewed and updated periodically as the industries knowledge about effective inspection and treatment strategies evolved.
