Bed Bug Boot Camp

Bed Bug Boot Camp


Schendel is proud to present two upcoming Bed Bug Boot Camps, which are aimed at educating managers in the multi-housing, hospitality and health care industries about the current bed bug epidemic. 

These free, half-day seminars explore the bed bug epidemic and risk to housing organizations. Why are we experiencing a surge in infestations? Attendees will learn about their biology, how they hunt for us and the warning signs that bed bugs are present. Learn about the latest technology and strategies to combat bed bugs, canine inspections, traditional control measures and advancements in heat treatments. What is your plan of action when bed bugs are discovered and what does the future hold?

Schendel entomologist Kevin Lemasters will cover the historical perspective; details of where bed bugs live and how they reproduce; THEIR HUNT (how do they find us and what is important to them); OUR HUNT (warning signs, how to inspect for infestation, and inspection tools that work); weapons we can use such as dusting, liquids, vacuuming and heat treatments; action strategies; and useful ways to educate your residents and managers.

If you’d like to attend either of the FREE seminars below, please contact Amber Dempewolf at amber.dempewolf@pestzero.com for more information and to reserve your seat.
