Utah Hoteliers learn about Bed Bugs, Pest Prevention

April

11

2008

Members of the Utah Hotel & Lodging Association attended the association's Spring Fling today in Springdale, UT at the Best Western Zion Park Inn. In addition to networking with other Utah hoteliers and lodging property managers, attendees were treated to a free educational program presented by Sprague Pest Solutions on Pest Prevention and the lodging industry's most dreaded pest, Bed Bugs.

While we were excited to be a UH&LA Spring Fling Event Sponsor, our passion is in education and helping hotel owners and managers learn ways to:

  • Prevent pest activity
  • Protect properties and guests from pest risks
  • Prepare for when Bed Bugs check-in at their hotel

It's true. Bed bugs are a real issue. Our Salt Lake City Service Center is receiving calls weekly from hotel and lodging properties who need help with bed bug infestations. There are many risks and choices to make it comes to bed bug control. (Did you know there are dogs that will inspect for bed bugs?) Attendees got a first-hand look at actual bed bug specimens and had an opportunity to ask questions of our entomologist (fancy name for professional bug guy), Jeff Weier, BCE.

2008

Continuing a long history of introducing innovative service solutions, Sprague Pest Solutions is excited to announce we are the first to bring Bed Bug Canine Inspection services to clients in the Northwest. Bed bug dogs have been used in New York, Florida, Japan and now, we are able to offer this smarter approach to detecting bed bugs locally.

Rescued from the pound, Sprague's bed bug canine has been trained using the same methodology and training regimen as bomb-sniffing dogs, drug dogs and termite dogs. Our Special Services Manager is certified by a canine master trainer as a bed bug dog handler. His bed bug inspection dog is April, a labrador who is the first canine on the Sprague service team.
