Bedbugs in Seattle

Bed Bug Summit to be held at the Westin Seattle.

June 12, 2009 Olympia, WA – Eden is excited to announce that the National Pest Management Association will be hosting a Bed Bug Summit for the Northwest at the Westin Seattle on August 27th. The EPA’s Bed Bug Summit in Washington D.C. last April sparked a demand for similar conferences to be held in multiple cities throughout the country, Seattle being one of them.

Bed bugs are back in high numbers and causing major issues for the hospitality industry. The goal behind the symposium is to train, educate and initiate a response plan for bedbug prone facilities so that the Northwest is prepared for the resurgence of Bed bugs. Bed bugs are one of the most challenging pests to control; therefore education and collaboration is the most effective way to combat the rising number of cases.

Representatives from hotels, hospitals, pest control companies and the like are highly encouraged to attend. The symposium is scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. and to conclude no later than 4:00 p.m. The day’s itinerary will consist of hands-on exhibits, speakers from the Department of Health, National Pest Management Association and discussions with experts from several industry sectors.

To make hotel reservations at the Westin Seattle, call 206-728-1000 by August 3, 2009 to receive the group rate of $159 per night.

More details will become available as the date of the event approaches.

This is a very important event, especially if you are or have suffered from bed bugs.

I am at the end of the infestation in my little studio condo and am in a waiting period to see if they are actually gone.

I will be attending and will hopefully have the opportunity to speak to the havoc these pests wreak on your life in terms of economics, emotional and psychological stress.
