Last week, the National Pest Management Association held a Bedbug Forum in Denver, CO. The event provided pest management professionals (PMPs) with the latest information from the legal, technical, business and customer-oriented perspectives. The 3-day event was attended by over 500 professional PMPs from across the country - more than double what NPMA expected - highlighting the significant impact bedbugs are having on our industry and the communities we serve.

Sprague's President/CEO Alfred H. Treleven III presented on Effective Bedbug Business Models. He is also a member of the NPMA Blue Ribbon Bedbug Task Force that has been working on a groundbreaking initiative to develop bedbug best management practices (BMPs) for the pest industry. The BMPs will set guidelines and expectations for bedbug services. The final BMPs will be released in the weeks ahead.
