The three-day forum is designed to provide PMPs with the information they need from a legal, technical, business, and customer-oriented perspective to address bed bug problems, as well as how to develop an environment of trust between their company and their customers.

  • The Bed Bug Challenge
  • Effective Business Models
  • The Universe of Detection
  • Understanding Different Treatment Methods
  • Alternative Technologies
  • Getting Customers to Bite
  • Proactive Steps to Avoid Litigation

Demonstrations will include heat, steam, cold, treatment ergonomics and methods, monitoring practices, UVA inspection, and canine inspection.
