LODI, Calif. (January 11, 2012) – It’s no secret that bed bugs are still everywhere – in apartments, houses and hotels, college dormitories, hospitals, offices, retail stores, public transportation, laundromats and even movie theaters. And since a majority of industry professionals consider bed bugs to be THE most difficult pest to treat (NPMA, 2010), Clark Pest Control is coming to Rohnert Park to help educate these facility managers with a free one-day seminar called “Bed Bugs: Know The Truth.”
The “Bed Bugs: Know The Truth” event in Rohnert Park will be held on Wednesday, February 1st from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Doubletree Rohnert Park (One Doubletree Dr., Rohnert Park). Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Only 100 spots are available for anyone who manages a facility or property where bed bugs could be a problem in and around the following areas -- Santa Rosa, Vacaville, Napa/Sonoma, Fairfield, San Rafael, Bodega Bay, Vallejo, Novato, Petaluma and Davis.
“Our goal is to educate the people in charge of facilities that most commonly get infestations so they are prepared to make smart and timely decisions if and when they are faced with having to identify and fight bed bugs,” said Robert Baker, operations manager, Clark Pest Control.
The event will provide guests answers to many common myths about bed bugs, such as whether or not they transmit diseases and are a sign of poor sanitation, and if you can see them with the naked eye. Experts will also educate guests on the newest ways to detect and control bed bugs, as well as how a bed bug infestation can affect a business’ bottom line. Speakers include Jim Fredricks from the National Pest Management Association, Gail Getty from the UC Extension, and Jeff Lipman of the Lipman Law Firm that deals with bed bug litigation and other industry experts.
Anyone interested in registering for the Rohnert Park “Bed Bugs: Know The Truth” event may call 800-936-3339 or email email@example.com.
The “Bed Bugs: Know The Truth” events will also be held in San Mateo on February 2nd and in San Diego on February 3rd.
