  • EPA Bedbug Information Clearinghouse
    • The goal of the Bed Bug Information Clearinghouse is to provide a "one-stop" location for communities throughout the country to exchange information and outreach materials on the control, detection and prevention of bed bugs. This will help communities conserve resources and provide improved effectiveness and accuracy of community outreach materials.
    • The Clearinghouse is searchable based on:
      • Audience - such as Hotels, Health Centers, Housing Authorities, Schools, Shelters, Residential Consumers, etc.
      • Topic - Detection, Prevention, Non-chemical Control, Management, Pesticides
      • Type of product - Outreach Materials such as Factsheets, Brochures, Websites, etc.
    • The Clearinghouse will include information in English and other languages as available. Some of the current information focuses on identifying and treating bed bug infestations in various types of situations. In addition, there is information on several different types of treatments such the use of heat to kill bed bugs. While there is no quick fix for bed bug infestations, having accurate information about bed bug control will help keep the public from over-applying or misusing pesticides.
