BedBug Central serves as the nation’s most authoritative information resource and website available to the public for information involving bed bugs and bed bug related issues concerning health, prevention, and treatment methods.
Our company and website was developed, in part by nationally regarded entomologist Richard Cooper, in response to the extensive incorrect information available to individuals faced with bed bug problems. In many cases, the information available on the internet is erroneous and can even lead to severe infestations or health risks. Richard Cooper, who co-authored a book titled “Bed Bug Handbook: The Complete Guide to Bed Bugs and Their Control”, is a highly sought out speaker on bed bugs and other pest management topics.
The veracity and strength of the information we present comes from our three staff entomologist that are actively researching, developing and applying bed bug treatment protocols. This same approach is applied during the selection process of the products we choose to represent.
The vision of BedBug Central has expanded since its 2007 inception and now includes a web series titled Bed Bug TV. The series is hosted by Technical Director of BedBug Central and research entomologist Jeffrey White.
In addition, BedBug Central annually recruits the nation’s leading entomologists, bed bug experts and legal advisors for their popular North American Bed Bug Summit titled “BedBug University: North American Summit.” The Summit’s attendance consists of governmental agencies, housing authorities, property managers, pest management professionals, and a variety of private sector industries.
Finally, to ensure that customers have access to qualified pest management firms are equipped with the resources and training needed to properly address bed bugs, we have created the bedbugFREE network. The bedbugFREE Network is a nationwide network of like-minded pest management firms that adhere to the philosophies and methods developed by BedBug Central researchers. These guidelines include using a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment, of which EPA approved chemicals are a small portion.
