Community Bedbug Classes

Education will wind up being the key to limiting the spread of the bedbug problem that is plaguing many of our communities. A bedbug action plan should be developed with the help of the government and classes organized with a strong advertising plan to announce the classes. This, along with a public service announcement plan, could greatly increase the success of a bedbug elimination plan. People need to know what to look for to catch bedbug activity early. The public also should know how bedbugs spread from place to place and how to prevent this from happening as well. A wise man once said, " There is nothing to fear but fear itself" Knowledge is power and there is power in numbers.

I totally agree. We have begun to offer bed bug education to customers, but they are paying so much for the treatments, they don't have the money for the education, which is a bit foolish. I think that you are right though about there being a market for bed bug education. I think it can be a big winner with the right plan.
