Bed bugs are becoming increasingly prevalent in camps and other youth settings. Calls to the American Camp Association’s crisis hotline indicate a noticeable trend in bed bug problems in camps. Myths abound about what works and doesn’t work when responding to a bed bugs infestation, and some commonly held beliefs are wrong. This webinar addresses effective bed bug treatment and response using practical, research-based strategies. Many camps do not have a bed bug response plan and are unprepared. Now’s the time to learn the facts.
By the end of the session participants will be familiar with the upward trend in bed bug incidence, research-based information to counter common bed bug myths, strategies for bed bud prevention and response, recommendations for developing a bed-bug response plan, and suggested bed bug resources.
