LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J.—Cooper Pest Solutions, of Lawrenceville, N.J., is the most recent company approved for bedbugFREE membership. Cooper Pest joins an expanding national network pest management firms committed to the guidelines and practices of Bed Bug Central.

Cooper Pest Solutions services both NJ and PA areas and has been family owned and operated since the 1955s. Phil Cooper oversaw the development of Bed Bug Central and the bedbugFREE membership to distinguish themselves and likeminded companies as leaders in bed bug management. 

“We joined the bedbugFREE network to indicate to our customers and the public that we have had specific training and completed courses in safe and effective bed bug removal,” said Phil Cooper, president of Cooper Pest Solutions.

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. To date, the approval process and all business leads provided by Bed Bug Central are free of charge.

Bed Bug Central was created in response to inaccurate information available to pest management professional treating bed bugs and consumers faced with bed bug issues. Their website serves as an information resource for professionals and consumers regarding bed bug products, research, prevention and treatment methodology.

As a bedbugFREE approved company, Cooper Pest Solutions becomes a part of the growing network of pest management firms approved by Bed Bug Central.

“As the public deals with bed bug infestations it is important that they understand which treatment methods are being utilized by the pest management firm of their choice,” said Cooper. “I consider membership to the bedbugFREE network a Good Housekeeping seal of approval.”
