Charitable Holiday Bed Bug Program Announced

Bed Bug Central coordinates local pest management firms to create a nationwide charitable bed bug program.

| November 30, 2009

LAWRENCE, N.J. — For two Saturdays in December, Bed Bug Central will coordinate with local pest control companies to provide free charitable bed bug services for those in need who are suffering from bed bug infestations and do not have the means to improve their situation this holiday season.

The charity program is titled, “Take the Bite Out of the Holidays” and Bed Bug Central has partnered with several pest management firms, which have been approved for bedbugFREE membership, to donate charitable bed bug treatments.

By coordinating with companies across the nation, Bed Bug Central will make the holiday program a national event. The goal of the program is to encourage businesses across the nation to give back to the communities they service.

“Bed bugs can be very expensive to eliminate. This holiday season we wanted to give back to the community and provide some relief to those in need so that they can use their money to create a happier holiday without the frustration of dealing with bed bugs,” said Jeff White research entomologist and the visionary behind the holiday charity. 

Applications are currently being accepted. For more information or to apply visit Bed Bug Central at www.bedbugcentral.com/holidays or call 609-799-1300.

Recipients will be announced on Dec. 5th and 10th.
