BedBug Central’s educational division, BedBug University, allows pest management professionals (PMPs) the chance to increase their knowledge and training on bed bugs. BedBug University offers a variety of training sessions including Bed Bug Boot Camp as well as online education to help PMPs learn and deliver effective treatment protocols when servicing for bed bugs. Our educational program was developed by bed bug experts, entomologists Jeff White and Dr. Richard Cooper.
BedBug University: Boot Camp
We strive to provide pest management professionals from all across the world with valuable information and the chance to learn our cutting-edge bed bug treatment methodology at our BedBug Boot Camp training sessions, which are held throughout the year at our headquarters in Lawrenceville, NJ.
In the four-day intensive training sessions, participants will have the opportunity to learn BedBug Central’s unique, “NO PREP” bed bug treatment methodology hands-on in the field. The courses covered in the boot camp will focus on bed bug biology and behavior, treatment protocols as well as exploring the legal challenges you my face and business opportunities available with bed bugs.
What Can You Expect on Each Day of Boot Camp?
Day 1: Today you will explore all the basics of bed bug from their biology to their unique behavior. You’ll learn all about the history of the resurgence of bed bugs and recent research that has helped shape specific treatment protocols in the pest industry. In addition to learning the history, biology and behavior of bed bugs, you’ll receive a complete overview of BedBug Central’s “NO PREP” treatment protocol.
Day 2: On day 2 you will take everything you have learned on day 1 out into the field for some hands-on training. Our talented bed bug specialist team will work side-by-side with you where you can see the protocol in action.
Day 3: Take your bed bug program to the next level. Our Business Development team will provide a comprehensive day of training on building your markets, business models and the unique legal challenges of bed bugs, as well as all other business aspects of bed bugs.
Day 4: The most important day of all! Today you will have a complete review of the first three days, reinforcing the concepts that you have learned. The boot camp formally ends at noon but for companies looking to become bedbugFREE members can extend the day to complete the application process and to reach the stated goals of becoming bedbugFREE -- the culmination of the BedBug University experience!

Taking The Bite Out Of The Holidays
Taking the Bite Out of the Holidays, which started in 2009, is a charitable program sponsored by BedBug Central that offers free bed bug services to those in need who are suffering from bed bug infestations and cannot afford the required treatment to better their living situation. Anyone in financial need may apply for the charitable program, including group homes, shelters and nursing homes.
Once applicants are selected, they will be paired with participating pest control companies in their area. The pest control professionals will then arrive at the home or facility sometime in December or January and render their bed bug services in an effort to better the living situation and provide some relief from the stress associated with bed bug infestations.
We are always searching for pest management professionals across the country looking to donate their services for charity and give back to those in need who are suffering from bed bugs.
Sign up today to give back to your community this holiday season! If you’re interested in contributing services this year, email BedBug Central at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our company submission form. Together we can make a difference!

Products for Professionals
