Bed bugs cause a multitude of physical and psychological problems to humans. Alone from their bites and the ensuing allergic reactions, people also experience loss of sleep, anxiety, and depression.

These experiences often times leave a lasting impression, with people reporting post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms long after the bugs are eradicated. Attend this session to understand the medical importance of bed bugs to help you better communicate with your customers dealing with bed bug infestations.
