No matter what control method a pest management professional (PMP) chooses, bed bug jobs require cooperation from customers. Follow these ten tips from bed bug experts in the industry.

— Dr. Gerry Wegner, BCE-Emeritus, Vero Beach, Fla.

5. “Don’t rip or tear encasements as you change linens. Even a small tear is a problem.”
— Dr. Kathy Heinsohn, BCE, American Pest, Fulton, Md.

6. “Never let a customer feel it’s their fault they have bed bugs.”
— Shane Best, Technician, Best Exterminating, Harriman, Tenn.

7. “Train and retrain your technicians.”
— Kevin Lemasters, President, EnviroPest, Loveland, Colo.

8. “Document what you see and do. Make sure you write everything up.”
— Nancy Boerema, Co-owner, Firefly Enlightened Pest Solutions, Lincoln City, Ore.

9. “Don’t allow customers to prep by storing items in cardboard boxes.”
