Sleep Tight Pest Control, a San Francisco-based company with over 12 years of experience in bed bug control, will be holding a seminar at the Joan and Ray Kroc Center in San Francisco on June 8, 2012. This one-day seminar will be conducted through the company’s newest venture, Sleep Tight Academy and offers the most up-to-date trainings and information regarding the best practices of bed bug control.
Although DDT eliminated bed bugs in the United States in the early 20th century, resistance to DDT and other traditional chemical treatments has left most pest control companies baffled as to how to handle this new epidemic. Treatments are expensive and often don’t work the first time, requiring landlords and tenants to pay thousands of dollars, often with no relief.
Bed bugs are being found and fought all over the United States- in single-family homes, apartment buildings and condos, hotels and motels, retail establishments, and even schools and churches. A survey, sponsored by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), found that bedbug-related calls to exterminators have risen by 81% over the last decade and by 57% over the last five years.
Sleep Tight Academy uses seminars to educate property managers, hotel managers and staff, tenants, social service staff, and the general public about bed bugs and successful bed bug eradication. Sleep Tight Pest Control boasts a 98 percent success rate and provides a 30-day guarantee on all of their treatments.
Specializing in working with the highest-risk populations, Sleep Tight Pest Control developed their comprehensive bed bug control process based on Integrative Pest Management strategies using 12 years of experience fighting bed bugs. Sleep Tight Pest Control’s bed bug abatement philosophy emphasizes prevention, active participation of all stakeholders and treatment of all items in the unit, leaving nothing to chance or human error. Sleep Tight Academy will utilize this expertise to provide InvaderSF2012 participants with a comprehensive understanding of the bed bug issue and empowering them to fight the bed bug epidemic.
Special guest speakers will include San Francisco District Supervisor Jane Kim and Department of Public Health Program Manager Karen Cohn, who will speak on recent and upcoming changes to San Francisco’s bed bug regulations.
InvaderSF2012 participants will choose from eight workshops: Treatment 101, IPM Strategies, The Financial Impact, Property Management Responsibilities, Stopping the Problem Before It Starts, Bridging the Gap Between Landlord and Tenants, Be a Bed Bug Detective, and When Two Issues Collide: Hoarding and Bed Bugs.
San Diego, Los Angeles, and Honolulu can also expect a visit from Sleep Tight Academy in the next few months. Register for InvaderSF2012 now at http://www.SleepTightAcademy.com
