Exterminators agreed that the bedbug education campaign has affected how the pest management industry deals with the pests. Gil Bloom, president of Standard Pest Management in Queens and a former bedbug task force member, said clients are calling for his company’s services earlier than before, when there was a stigma about finding bedbugs. “We’re not seeing a decline in volume of calls, but we’re seeing a decrease in the severity of what we need to respond to,” Bloom said. “We’re doing more inspections.” And when there is a bedbug infestation, Bloom said exterminators have a better sense of what is needed to eradicate bedbugs and an established protocol they can follow. This includes use of steam, heat, chemicals and vacuuming.
