| September 5, 2013

FAIRFIELD, Conn. — BedBug Chasers, a franchised heat remediation services company, has added a new location headquartered in Fairfield, Conn. The new location is scheduled to open Sept. 15, 2013, and will provide bed bug killing and dry out services in lower and middle Connecticut with plans to expand to Hartford and Northeast Conn., using BedBug Chasers patented process and heating equipment.

BedBug Chasers of Fairfield is owned and operated by Peter Kegler and Kevin Scott, and will augment their existing real estate, storage and moving businesses that operate in Westchester County, N.Y. and all of Connecticut.
The new franchisees both have first hand experience with bed bugs and Peter Kegler added, “We were looking to expand our portfolio of businesses and wanted to get involved on the ground floor of a business that had the ability to explode. We had seen the bed bug population rise here in Connecticut and Orkin’s Top 50 Bed Bug List confirmed that Hartford/New Haven raised 10 positions in 2012, to number 26 on the list and we decided BedBug Chasers was an opportunity with tremendous growth potential.”

BedBug Chasers uses 100% chemical free, highly specialized electric heaters and a proven methodology to ride homes of bed bugs.

Kevin Scott added, “You fish where there are fish and the market up here is wide open for BedBug Chasers. The business model is simple. We kill 100% of the bugs and we will be offering these services to existing pest control operators as subcontractors and in areas where we do not have existing relationships, we will be servicing customers directly. What also attracted us to this business is the home and business dry out capabilities that we will now be able to offer. What the N.J., office was able to accomplish for Sandy flood victims is just short of a miracle and we look forward to bringing this revolutionary process to Connecticut residents, as well.”

BedBug Chasers VP of Franchise Operations Larry Smith added, “As always, we are thrilled to see the brand continue to expand and with their experience in related businesses we believe this store will be wildly successful. Connecticut is a great market for us.
