Friends of IPM winner Molly Stedfast co-hosts webinar on bed bugs

If you’ve ever dealt with an infestation of bed bugs, you already know they are rather challenging pests. They can be expensive and difficult to control in multifamily housing. Just when you think a treatment was successful, they start to come back! Bed bugs do not transmit disease, but they do present some unique challenges. The strain on the pocket books and mental well-being of those living with bed bugs makes them a big concern for those who work and live in affordable housing. One of our goals at StopPests is to help you manage bed bugs property-wide. That includes preventing infestations where you can and responding to those that arise with researched, effective control methods. On September 10, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. EDT, StopPests will be hosting a free webinar on in-house bed bug prevention and management. Dr. Dini Miller and her student Molly Stedfast will present and answer questions about their research and experience managing bed bugs in public housing.
