Watch the Recording of Rick Cooper’s Presentation “Turning Failure into Success: Bed Bug Management in Affordable Housing”

Chronic bed bug infestations and severe bed bug infestation rates in multifamily buildings are becoming more common due to the lack of effective bed bug management programs. But Bed Bugs can be controlled! Watch the recording of Rick Cooper’s presentation Turning Failure into Success: Bed Bug Management in Affordable Housing to learn how bed bugs are successfully controlled with examples of assessment-based management plans. You can find out 1) how and why bed bugs spread throughout living communities resulting in high infestation rates and escalating management costs, 2) why bed bug management has been largely ineffective in affordable housing communities 3), what methods are most effective for controlling bed bugs, 4) to apply a scientifically proven method for complex-wide management of bed bugs in affordable housing communities that results in long-term cost savings and improved quality of life for residents.

Rick worked in the pest management industry before earning his Ph.D. at Rutgers University where his research focused on bed bug management with an emphasis on affordable housing communities. He is currently the Director of Special Programs at Terminix and is also serving as Technical Director for Cooper Pest Solutions. His unique background combining industry perspective and real-world experience with scientific research will provide you with realistic and effective solutions specific to the challenges found in the affordable housing environment.
