Bed bugs are a common problem throughout America. Are you dealing with a bed bug infestation? Learn how to find and remove these pests using available resources, and ensure that they never return. Also learn about HUD’s bed bug policy and Integrated Pest Management Plan.

Bed bugs are an annoying pest, and once they enter your home, it can be really hard to get rid of them. Because of their small size and high reproduction rate, they easily thwart homeowners’ efforts at removal. However, no problem is unsolvable. Bed bugs can be gotten rid of without seeking the services of an exterminator, if you use the right methods and equipment.

During this webinar, you will learn how to identify and remove bed bugs using available (or easily obtainable) resources. You will also learn about bed bugs, including their identification and whether they carry diseases. Another important topic covered in the webinar is the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) policy for bed bugs, and their Integrated Pest Management Plan. Our speaker will also walk you through HUD’s notice H 2012-5, concerning bed bugs.

If you are a landlord, you need to know what you can and cannot do, if your tenants complain of a bed bug infestation. You need to comply with the HUD’s policies, and this webinar will show you how. If you are part of a maintenance crew responsible for room hygiene, you will, in all likelihood, be the one who has to get rid of bed bugs.
