They bug anyone

Posted by: on February 9, 2011

It was terrific to hear the warm welcome given at the February 1, 2011 bed bug summit by Bob Perciasepe, Deputy Administrator, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Here’s the story.

As first speaker and the highest ranking EPA administrator in attendance, Bob opened with a personal story. He spoke of being fortunate to live in a Brooklyn Heights brownstone that he and his family treasure. Five years back his daughter was in the routine of returning home on college breaks. He never imagined then that he would be addressing the audience with his own bed bug story.

The typical symptoms of the bug started to appear but they weren’t sure what it meant. Within a few weeks it was clear they needed help. And then it was determined that they had come home with his daughter and her friends straight from the dorm. As family and friends realized what was going on, emotions ran high. Spend lots of money to get rid of them. That’s what they did. And then what? Tell the daughter she can’t come home with a suitcase and friends? Sell the house and meet up out west to ski on breaks? Those thoughts come to mind all too often. It’s just the nature of the bug. A great moment for me and fiona in realizing that our company will help keep down the use of pesticide and keep up the quality of life for our clients and their families.
