Bed Bug Webinar

Webinars

Bed bugs are becoming increasingly common in senior living communities due to their ability to travel easily from a senior's previous home. Once in the community, they can multiply and spread quickly, wreaking havoc throughout the building and affecting the well-being of residents and staff.

While bed bugs are not known to transmit disease, their bites can leave itchy red welts. However, everyone reacts to bites differently, and many people show no reaction at all, so proper bed bug identification is key.

Senior living companies must be prepared for infestations and know how to manage the problem efficiently and effectively. This Webinar series will provide you with the tools you need to minimize the risk of a bed bug infestation and the steps to take if your community encounters bed bugs.

A Webinar recording is available in the Bed Bug Detection and Management Tool Kit in the ALFA Store. Learn about the causes of bed bug infestations and how to reduce the chances of one striking your community. You will also gain an understanding of new litigation threats that surround bed bug infestations and build a risk management plan for dealing with this pest.
