Bed Bugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bed bugs have made a resurgence all over the world and North Carolina has not been immune. This is not a problem that any property owner or manager should take lying down. Below I am posting an e-mail from the Wake County Government about an upcoming Bed Bug informational meeting they are having on October 6, 2010

From: Carla.Piedrahita@wakegov.com [mailto:Carla.Piedrahita@wakegov.com]
Subject: Bed Bug Interest Meeting - October 6 - Please RSVP


Wake County Government has observed an increase in the
number of reports of bed bugs in the community. While
bed bugs do not transmit disease, they can severely
impact the quality of life of our citizens. Reported
cases of bed bugs seem to be on the rise, but we still
believe there is an opportunity to develop education and
outreach programs and services that can serve as
valuable resources to our citizens to address this problem.

On Wednesday, October 6, 2010, from 10 am until noon, Wake
County Government will host a meeting of concerned parties
to discuss the issue of bed bugs in our community. The
meeting will be held in the Boardroom (344) of the Health
Department, located at 10 Sunnybrook Rd in Raleigh (next to
WakeMed Hospital). We would like to use the meeting to
review and discuss information regarding the current degree
of bed bug infestation in the community, public health concerns
associated with bed bugs, programs and services that are
currently available to citizens to address bed bugs, methods
and techniques used to eliminate bed bugs, current research on
bed bugs, and lessons learned from other communities. At the
conclusion of the meeting, it is anticipated that a series of
follow up meetings will be scheduled as part of a plan of work
to develop bed-bug related education and outreach programs and
services for our citizens.

We are looking forward to meeting you on October 6th. Please
RSVP to Carla Piedrahita by replying to this e-mail. If you
are unable to make the meeting, or if there is another person
from your office that would be more appropriate, feel free to
send a representative. Please don't hesitate to call if you
have any questions in the meantime.

Thanks for your interest in attending this meeting.
