Pest Management Professionals are going through extensive new training to learn how to deal with the rapidly spreading Bed Bug problem. Bed Bugs infestations require a significantly more rigorous approach to solve this serious issue. In fact, a pest control professor at the University of Massachusetts conducted an informal survey of pest management professionals and found that 68 percent of all bed bug infestations require three or more treatments; 26 percent require two treatments and 6 percent require just one. The inspection and documentation of the service are now critical portions of the process to protect lodging customers and the lodging industry's reputation.

Managers of apartment complexes, hotels, motels, and dormitories should recognize who the true pest professionals are and expect more from them. Now more than ever, they need to look for a professional pest management company to provide continuing service who can offer long term protection for their business. Pest Management is not a one-time service especially with the threat of bed bugs. That company should provide:

Verification of Inspections - with the seriousness of the quickly spreading bed bug issues it is imperative that you document that the service is being completed as intended. A single infested room can rapidly spread to other rooms. Therefore it is important that qualified personnel periodically inspect each room to catch the start of an infestation before it spreads. The inspection process needs to be verified and documented.

Document the Service and Any Issues Observed - these same handheld computers are utilized to document and record the service treatments and any important observations during the service. These are professionals who take the time during their services to also make you aware of other issues they observe. These can be conditions which create a conducive environment for pests to thrive such maintenance issues like air conditioners or showers leaking on carpets or sanitation issues like food debris or poor refuse disposal. Bed bugs are not the only pest of concern to managers and a professional pest provider is the best protection for your business and your customers.

Reporting - you should also expect a report from your pest management professional, preferably while they are still on site, which provides you with the n documentation you need detailing their service. This can be critical for your peace of mind and the protection of your customers and your business.

To accomplish these tasks, many PMPs utilize the U-Trap-It Pest Management System to verify that an inspection was actually completed in each room and document any pest issues that they observe during the inspection. The technician will utilize a small handheld barcode reader/computer which scans the barcode thus verifying that the service was performed. This device also captures the inspector's observations.

The U-Trap-It* Pest Management System by In-Quiz-It Software provides the PMP with all these features and more. And, we think you’ll find that PMPs that use the U-Trap-It System are more than a “cut above” other PMPs, you can’t afford anything less when so much is at stake.
