LAWRENCE, NJ - This holiday season, BedBug Central will coordinate with pest control companies in Pennsylvania and New Jersey to provide charitable bed bug services for those who are suffering from bed bug infestations and do not have the means to improve their situation.

The charitable event is titled, "Taking the Bite Out of the Holidays," and is being organized by BedBug Central, an authoritative information resource developed by entomologists to provide accurate information about bed bugs to the public and organizations.

The charitable event was created by nationally regarded research entomologist Jeffrey White of BedBug Central. Having researched bed bugs for more than 10 years, White has been particularly concerned with the rising cost of bed bug treatments.

"Bed bugs can be very expensive to eliminate, and with the effects of this economy, we knew we had to give back," said White. "We understand the importance of giving back and we wanted to continue the tradition and provide some relief to those in need. Ultimately, an individual's money should be spent on creating a happier holiday season, not dealing with the frustration of bed bugs."

In addition to aiding those in need throughout the country, BedBug Central is focusing their efforts on individuals and charities in the tri-state area. BedBug Central will partner with local pest control company, Cooper Pest Solutions, to provide charitable bed bug treatments to those in need in New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.

By coordinating with pest management firms in the tri-state area and across the country, BedBug Central will make the holiday program a national event with local impact. The goal of the program is to encourage businesses across the nation to give back to the communities they service.

Applications for candidates seeking bed bug assistance are currently being accepted. For more information or to apply, visit BedBug Central at www.bedbugcentral.com/holidays or email beddy at beddy@bedbugcentral.com.

Recipients will be announced on Dec. 2 and bed bug treatments will be rendered the first three weekends of December.
