The pest control industry owes much of its recent growth and expansion to the bed bug market, which is an increasingly important economic driver for PMPs throughout North America. In the most recent market data from Specialty Consultants, bed bug service revenues totaled $611.2 million in 2016, a 6.6% increase from the previous year. In addition, there were nearly 907,875 bed bug jobs completed in 2016*. If you’re considering entering this lucrative field, or would simply like to learn more about the most effective bed bug treatment techniques in both residential and commercial accounts, you’ll want to attend the PCT Virtual Bed Bug Conference scheduled for Wednesday, June 27. The program will feature leading bed bug experts from both academia and the private sector.
