‘Bed Bug Authority’ relaunches in time for celebratory week


June 7, 2021



The Ambler, Pa.-based manufacturer of ActiveGuard Mattress Liners, Allergy Technologies, is celebrating Bed Bug Awareness Week (June 6-13) with the relaunch of “The Bed Bug Authority.” This quarterly newsletter is designed to help pest management professionals (PMPs) grow their businesses with “a focus on effectively and sustainably making bed bug prevention a reality,” according to a news release.

“Awareness is necessary, but prevention is the true solution for bed bugs,” President Joseph Latino said in the news release. Latino was featured on a national radio media tour last week discussing the company’s successful launch of the Allergy Technologies Affordable Housing Control and Prevention Program for Bed Bugs (ATAHC).

“2021 is poised to be a year of growth for pest control as businesses slowly recover across the country,” he said. “We are committed to providing the industry with resources to help PMPs succeed in expanding their bed bug service offering portfolio and growing their bottom lines.”

ActiveGuard Mattress Liners is a proactive product, registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and labeled to prevent bed bug infestations for two years. In hotel use for years, ActiveGuard-featured preventive programs have reduced infestations as much as 90 percent or more, the company says.

PMPs can subscribe to “The Bed Bug Authority” by emailing info@allergytechnologies.com.
