From the NPMA Website:  "The resurgence of bed bugs has created significant concern in the pest management industry and in society overall. Controlling, let alone eradicating, this pest is extremely difficult. To help industry professionals control bed bugs effectively, responsibly and safely, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has created Best Management Practices for Bed Bugs, guidelines developed by industry professionals, regulators, academics, and entomologists. The following information has been excerpted from that document to help consumers understand what they should expect in working with trained pest management professionals for problems associated with bed bugs.
