BedBug Central’s own Jeff White appeared recently on Alaska’s KTVA along with Ken Perry of Pied Piper Pest Control. Jeff was a speaker at the Bed Bugs Are Biting Alaska seminar in Anchorage, Alaska in late August and was invited to appear on the morning show during his trip.
“We’ve seen huge increases all around the state over the last several years,” said Perry. “It’s actually hit all through the travel industry and in multifamily dwellings as well as in single-family dwellings. We’re just a hot spot here in Alaska because we’re in the center of movement. People come and go all the time.”
The free bed bug seminar was open to anyone effected by bed bugs including those in the hospitality industry, landlords, renters, those living in multi-unit dwellings, pest management professionals and more.
Attendees went away with information including strategies and products available to anyone concerned about bed bugs. The focus was on non-chemical methods. Some products recommended were mattress encasements that protect bedding and make the bugs easier to see, interception devices that can be placed under the legs of a bed and newly developed products called the Volcano interception device and Activ bed bug lure that can be used in just about any environment.
