• Bed Bug Management for Professionals, a 40-minute video that details how a pest management professionals, which details how a PMP conducts a bed bug service.
Rutgers’ Rick Cooper explained the value of the videos, "The 40-minute video is good for both new technicians and those who have been working in the pest management industry. We are using the seven-minute video to train housing managers, staff and residents. The video delivers the messages in a concise manner that keeps their attention as much, and sometimes more, than an in-person presentation.”
