Bed Bug Action Plans
Treating a bed bug infestation is only part of the solution. The other part of the solution is to prevent re-introduction. To help with this task, we offer custom action plans for building managers and maintenance staff along with education programs to teach you and your staff how to identify and prevent bed bugs.

Bed bug infestations in schools are uncommon. More common is that a few bed bugs will hitchhike into a school from an infested home by hiding in a student’s clothing or backpack. These bed bugs could be carried home by another student, making the school a potential hub for bed bugs to spread.
Property managers should have an action plan in place if tenants suspect they have bed bugs in their unit. Proper documentation, staff training, and a partnership with a bed bug professional like Wil-Kil are a few items you should have on your action plan.
Create and implement a location-specific bed bug complaint response protocol and ensure that all employees who may encounter a complaint from a guest are well-versed in the protocol. All front desk employees should know the appropriate information (a specifically worded apology) to give to a guest and what steps should be taken when faced with a bed bug discovery inside a guest room. The following guidelines are suggested when faced with a bed bug complaint.
Bed bugs are hitchhiking pests who travel on the belongings of people. On occasion, they can be brought into hospital settings. In this setting, most cases are an introduction of a small number of bed bugs and not a large established infestation. Having multiple staff members trained to identify bed bugs from other insects is highly recommended and can defuse panic immediately. In the event of a patient being admitted into a hospital, or similar setting, and bed bugs are discovered on their person or belongings, the following steps are recommended.
