The following Public Service Announcement is going to debut on US television in the coming weeks, according to PCT Online.

The announcement emphasizes that bed bugs can be found in all kinds of locations, and reminds viewers not to try and deal with their bed bug problems alone.

Previous bed bug PSAs include this Washington DC video put out by the city’s Department of Health, and the radio PSAs sponsored by the Michigan Department of Community Health and the Michigan Pest Management Association.

As Lou Sorkin has noted on the YouTube comments, the video shows only an adult bed bug — missing the opportunity to educate people about what first instar nymphs look like, for example.

What do you think of the PPMA video?

I like the PSA (NPMA) video. I see Mr. Sorkin’s point, however, re: only showing the adult bed bug. Hopefully, by contacting (tag at the end of video) consumers can get more information regarding the life cycle and the different sizes of the eggs, nymphs, etc. But I hope it is shown in our area. It will be a start of awareness. I have seen nothing by way of a PSA on the Eastern Shore (DE, Beach areas). Many people and businesses in our area are not addressing this huge problem.
