Northeastern IPM Center's Susannah Reese, StopPests in Housing Program Featured at Bed Bug Summit
In November 2018, Susannah Reese of the Northeastern IPM Center’s StopPests in Housing program was a featured speaker at the Global Bed Bug Summit.
The event, held in Denver, CO, and organized by the National Pest Management Association and BedBug Central, brought hundreds of pest-control-industry, academic, and housing professionals together to hear about research updates, successful management strategies, new products, and the challenges that remain in managing bed bugs.
The room was packed as Reese co-presented with Dr. Richard Cooper of Terminix on what’s working in bed bug control in affordable housing. In short, the message of the presentation echoed the IPM approach for many other pests: there’s no silver bullet and an effective IPM approach relies on education, proactive management, monitoring, inspection, and use of a variety of tools.
