LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — Throughout the month of December, BedBug Central will coordinate with pest control companies across the country to provide free charitable bed bug services to those in need. Taking the Bite Out of the Holidays, is an annual charity, having donated over $500,000 in free service since its inception in 2009. The charity helps those suffering from bed bug infestations, who do not have the means to improve their situation, to find comfort and relief from their problem.
As bed bug infestations continue to spread and grow throughout the country, the National Pest Management Association reports nearly 30 percent of those living in urban areas have encountered bed bugs. Seeing firsthand how difficult and expensive bed bugs could be to eliminate Jeffrey White, Vice President of Technical Services for BedBug Central developed “Taking the Bit Out of the Holidays.”
“Bed bugs can be very expensive to eliminate, especially for those living in socioeconomic communities, which are more vulnerable to infestations and the spread of bed bugs,” said White. “During the holidays it’s our goal provide help to those in need, so that they can focus their attention on loved ones and enjoying the holiday season.”
Those in need of bed bug services or those who wish to recommend someone are asked to submit an application detailing in 300 words or less why they are in need of treatment. Applications can be submitted a variety of ways:
