In this installment of our Emerging Hazards series we’ll examine the bedbug. This pest, that makes its meal from blood, has been resurgent in many areas where it had long been almost eradicated. The resurgence is due to increased trade with and travel from areas where bedbugs are still present, and regulations that have prevented the use of banned chemicals (like DDT) which were historically effective in controlling the pests. Stories of bedbug infestations in hotels, libraries, college dorms, and even businesses are a regular occurrence.
Once a bedbug infestation is discovered, the impact goes beyond inconvenience for a place of business. The word of mouth, not to mention reports on the Internet and social media, can be devastating to a business that depends on the physical patronage of the public.
During this webinar Chubb Risk Engineering will provide information regarding the identification, and control of Bedbugs.
