Bedbug Invasions in the Workplace: Are You at Risk?

Dealing with bedbugs in the workplace can be difficult, draining, and distracting - find out prevention tips and avoid legal pitfalls.

Bed bugs are back - big time. In recent years, the public went from never having seen a bed bug to now being a rather common occurrence. Bed bugs are most often thought to be associated with places where people sleep (hotels, homes, apartments, dormitories, etc.). Recently, however, they're increasingly showing up in less obvious places like schools, hospitals, movie theaters, retail stores ... and office buildings. Dealing with bed bugs in the workplace can be difficult, draining, distracting -- and sometimes nightmarish. This topic will show why they are such formidable foes, not to be taken lightly. Inspection, management, and prevention tips will be provided, along with tips for staying out of legal trouble.
