Fact: 47% of pest management companies have treated college dormitories for Bed bugs.*
What is Bed bug monitoring for college dorms?
Bed bug infestations in the United States are continuing at high rates, and the pest is becoming even more of a problem than in years past. Bed bugs are no longer confined to bedrooms in residential homes, and college dormitories are being treated for bed bugs much more frequently.
Our Sister Company, Bed Bug Central, has recently developed a new product SenSci Volcano to allow us to discretely monitor dormitories for Bed bugs. When SenSci Volcano is used together with SenSci Activ, a lure developed by Rutgers University, the combination creates a highly-effective and easy-to-use bed bug monitor ActivVolcano that effortlessly blends into the environment. If Bed bugs are found on the premises, we can quickly remediate infestations.
How do we monitor for Bed bugs in dormitories?
To proactively monitor for Bed bugs, we will discreetly place our monitors (SenSci Volcano) and lures (SenSci Active) throughout the dorm which allows us to locate bed bugs quickly. If we find Bed bugs in our monitors, we will quickly treat those areas at a discounted rate before the problem spreads and potentially gets out of hand.
Also included as part of the monitoring service is our Bed Bug Disaster Plan. Our plan will provide you with a communication strategy, resources, and the protocols that you will need to manage if Bed bugs are seen crawling through the office.
If Cooper confirms the presence of Bed bugs in the dormitory's common areas or within a dorm room, we are able to treat for Bed bugs with very little inconvenience and disruption. Since NO PREP is required by us to administer our treatment, there is no need to bag and remove all clothing, bedding, books and personal items prior to treatment. Unlike most of our competitors, we do need for the the room to be emptied in order for the treatment to be effective.
