| January 5, 2011

Lawrenceville, N.J. — Leaf Pest Control, Monaca, Pa., is the most recent company approved for a bedbugFREE membership. Leaf Pest joins an expanding national network of pest management firms committed to the guidelines and practices of BedBug Central.

Leaf Pest Control, a QualityPro business, has serviced Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia for more than 30 years. Dennis Link, president of Leaf Pest, said he was interested in joining the bedbugFREE network to tap into the considerable resources they offer that can help standardize bed bug treatments to achieve more desirable results, while Leaf Pest Control continues to offer immense effectiveness. 

“We really feel that BedBug Central’s leadership in education, training and research is vital in keeping us abreast of the latest in effective bed bug control,” said Link. “Being on the forefront of knowledge in this bed bug pandemic is important in maintaining a successful leadership role.

BedbugFREE is a network of “like-minded companies sharing the philosophies of BedBug 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 BedBug Central’s website and in turn, receive referrals as part of the bedbugFREE network.
