Expansion follows a reported 81 percent increase in bed bug complaints since 2000 nationwide and industry expert predictions that infestations will increase this summer
Bed Bugs and Beyond Consultants—a leading organization in providing education, counseling and pest control operator referrals—today announced its expanded partnership with various select service-providers including professionals who specialize in fumigation, moving and bed bug preparation, K-9 scent detection and treatment of bed bug infestations.
The New York-based company, which selects pest control professionals according to superior standards in the industry—has made the recent expansion in response to the growing number of bed bug infestations across the nation, growing customer demand and a recent report by the National Pest Management Association citing a dramatic increase in complaints since 2000. By expanding its network, Bed Bugs and Beyond can provide its unique offerings to those in search of bed bug relief.
“Customers are looking for a single, nonbiased point of contact that can offer reputable services to completely eliminate bed bugs,” said Michael Batenburg, president and CEO of Bed Bugs and Beyond. “Utilizing our services ensures that customers are only working with reputable providers who have gone through our qualification and screening process and are dedicated to 100 percent elimination of bed bugs and other target pests.”
Bed Bugs and Beyond currently works with service providers throughout the northeast and is expanding to other states seeing increased bed bug activity, such as Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Arizona and Indiana as well as several others.
The expansion comes at an ideal time since, according to industry experts, bed bug infestations will continue to rise this year, especially during the summer months, when these pests tend to thrive.
“I firmly believe that this year is going to be worse than last year,” said Jeffrey White, a research entomologist for Bedbugcentral.com, at a bedbug seminar last Wednesday,noting the prevalence of bed bugs last year. “If we combine the seasonal trend, with the bugs getting more and more embedded in our community, that allows the bugs to make that resurgence all the more stronger.”
