Turning Failure into Success: Bed Bug Management in Affordable Housing Webinar

July 11, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Presenter: Rick Cooper, PhD, Rutgers University, Cooper Pest Solutions, Terminix

Chronic bed bug infestations and severe bed bug infestation rates in multifamily buildings are becoming more common due to the lack of effective bed bug management programs. This webinar presentation will increase housing professional’s understanding of how bed bugs are successfully controlled with examples of assessment-based management plans. Participants will learn:

  1. how and why bed bugs spread throughout living communities resulting in high infestation rates and escalating management costs,
  2. why bed bug management has been largely ineffective in affordable housing communities
  3. what methods are most effective for controlling bed bugs,
  4. to apply a scientifically proven method for complex-wide management of bed bugs in affordable housing communities that results in long-term cost savings and improved quality of life for residents.

If you work in affordable housing you don’t want to miss the opportunity to register for this free training to hear Rick Cooper. Rick worked in the pest management industry before earning his Ph.D. at Rutgers University where his research focused on bed bug management with an emphasis on affordable housing communities. He is currently the Director of Special Programs at Terminix and is also serving as Technical Director for Cooper Pest Solutions.
