Swat Pest Management has more than 130 years of combined experience in pest management in its service areas, which now include Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois.

“With Bed Bug infestations on the rise, we wanted to partner ourselves with an industry leader,” said Ryan Denk, general manager for Swat Pest. “Considering the time and research that Bed Bug Central put into making this proven program, it only made sense to follow the leaders when it comes to protection of our community.”

bedbugFREE is a network of “like-minded companies sharing the philosophies of Bed Bug Central”. All companies undergo a rigorous screening process overseen by research entomologists Rick Cooper and Jeff White. Approved companies are then listed as bedbugFREE on Bed Bug Central’s website and in turn, receive referrals as part of the bedbugFREE network.
