Pest Management Professionals Flock to Wrightsville Beach Conference – Time Warner Cable News
Multifamily managers, in an effort to demonstrate fiscal responsibility to stakeholders, often enlist in-house maintenance staff or lowest-bidder exterminators to respond to a bed bug infestation. However, despite their (in most cases) best intentions, and because they are not bed bug experts, the staff or pest control company usually make the problem worse, and often spread the bed bug infestation to adjoining units. By the time we are called in to do the bed bug extermination the right way, the multifamily manager is dealing with a much more extensive problem and the associated much greater expense to clean it up. What was intended to be a demonstration of money-saving prowess has turned into sheepishly justifying a very large expense. A well-trained dog and handler team can inspect units 5-10 times (or more) faster than a human inspector, often completing a 3-bedroom unit inspection in 5-10 minutes. Additionally, because bed bugs are so small and adept at hiding, K-9 bed bug scent detection teams are much more accurate than their human counterpart.
