Take a bite out of the holidays

By |  October 13, 2016

BedBug Central logoBedBug Central is searching for companies willing to give back to those in need this holiday season by participating in its charity, Taking the Bite Out of the Holidays.

Now in its seventh year, Taking the Bite Out of the Holidays is a charitable program sponsored by BedBug Central that offers free bed bug services to those suffering from bed bug infestations who cannot afford the required treatment to better their living situation.

Jeff White, a research entomologist and BedBug Central’s technical director, says that it was through his experience in the field that he decided to start the charitable service.

“When I was working with bed bugs, I was working with a lot of homes where people were struggling to make ends meet, let alone deal with their bed bugs,” White explains. “It was a chance for BedBug Central and the rest of the pest control industry to give back to those in need, especially around the holidays.”

Robert DiJoseph, vice president of operations at BedBug Central, says he has single-handedly seen the positive effects that this charity has on the families affected by bed bugs, and how important it is for pest management companies to continue to give back to those in need.

“Bed bug services can be expensive and many financially challenged people are forced to work more than one job, so getting good quality sleep is important,” DiJoseph adds. “Being able to give back to those families who are experiencing bed bug problems and give them that relief at night so they can get a good night’s sleep is gratifying.”

This year, White is hoping to encourage pest management companies all across the country to participate in the charity, and bring some relief to those who are suffering from bed bugs.

“By using our resources, we will match participating pest control companies with those in need of charitable bed bug services and together we can help improve their living situation,” White said.
