KALAMAZOO, Mich., Jan. 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Griffin Pest Solutions has won a Bed Bugsy Award from the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) for its educational direct mail bed bug campaign. The NPMA created the Bed Bugsy Awards to recognize creative excellence in the marketing and advertising of bed bug services executed by pest control companies across the nation. Winners were announced at the recent National Bed Bug Forum in Denver, Colorado.
“We are very pleased to have won this award,” stated Linden Griffin, owner and president of Griffin Pest Solutions. “Bed bugs are a significant issue. There is a lot of information out there, but not all of it is accurate. We have taken the approach that education is the key in helping our communities tackle this issue.”
Griffin Pest Solutions has been sending the posters to federal, state and local agencies as well as places where bed bugs are commonly found such as apartment communities, hotels, colleges and universities, assisted living facilities, shelters and hospitals.
“It is our hope that the posters will be hung where staff or residents can see them so they know what bed bugs look like and where they hide,” Griffin explained.
In addition to the bed bug posters, Griffin Pest Solutions has been educating consumers on bed bugs by hosting seminars across Michigan. “People want to know what they’re up against. They want to be able to ask questions and get straight answers,” Griffin continued. “They want to know if they can prevent bed bugs and what are their treatment options.”
