Illinois company gains membership to bedbugFREE approved roster.

| June 14, 2010

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

American Pest Control has serviced central Illinois since 1951 and has been dedicated to providing protection from the hazards posed by pest infestations in homes or businesses. Stephen Howell of American Pest says his company was interested in joining the bedbugFREE network to ensure that they utilize the latest technology in bed bug control in order to resolve their client’s bed bug problems as quickly and effectively as possible. 

“Our company is always looking for the most up-to-date information on successful treatment methods and products centered on bed bug remediation,” said Howell. “Receiving training from BedBug Central has allowed us to provide our customers with the newest information about bed bug research and the most effective treatment methods available.”

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.

BedBug Central was created in response to inaccurate information available to pest management professionals 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, American Pest Control becomes a part of the growing network of pest management firms committed to BedBug Central treatment methods.

“It was important to us not to be categorized as just another pest control company that would come into your home or business and ‘spray you down’ as part of a one-time treatment process. Being associated with BedBug Central validates our treatment processes,” said Howell.

Companies seeking to accelerate the bedbugFREE approval process may attend BedBug University. BedBug University is a four-day course designed to shorten the learning curve of companies that want to increase bed bug revenues and enhance their bed bug business model.

Another primary aim of BedBug University is to shorten the time spent on independent research to enable pest management firms to enter the bed bug markets quickly.

The BedBug Central’s seminar and website continue to serve as an authority in the bud bug sector with daily submissions to the bedbugFREE network and acknowledgement from industry leaders such as Dr. Austin Frishman, president of AMF Pest Management Services Inc. and industry consultant since 1967.

“BedBug University is the best way to learn because BedBug Central’s technicians take you out to the field and show you technology and practices,” said Dr. Frishman about BedBug University. “BedBug Central and Jeff White are the only ones with this program. I recommend that people in pest control go to secure hands-on training. If you have just started dealing with bed bugs as a pest management professional, it’s an invaluable resource.”
