Erik Hodson, General Manager of Whitworth Pest Solutions, contributed to this Tacoma News Tribune story on bed bugs–the often controversial pest control topic sweeping the nation:

Along with some great info on bed bugs, the article mentions: “Public health experts say people with big infestations should consider hiring a pest firm. ‘They’re very challenging to deal with,’ said Sammy Berg, senior environmental health specialist with Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Department.”

Others who have attempted to treat them have become ill with overuse of over the counter pesticides. Our opinion is that someone who believes they have a bed bug infestation should at the very least consult a pest control professional, whether it be Whitworth Pest Solutions or not.
