Presented by the National Pest Management Association and the Pest Control Operators of California in Anaheim, the two-day conference is held annually to offer forward-thinking, strategy-driven experience to pest management professionals nationwide. It also offers pest control experts heard about a range of important pest control topics as viewed from a legal, technical, business, and customer-oriented perspective.

They received insight into the latest research and strategies on bed bug control, legal protection, treatment, and how to better understand challenges and opportunities that exist when entering into the canine scent detection business.

They were given the chance to interact with other attendees who shared the same challenges, and engage with more than 30 leading vendors as they gave demonstrations on the latest and most innovative bed bug products and services.
