Interests
Bed bugs - since 2005 I have worked as a dedicated exterminator of bed bugs have seen the problem grow since 2002. I am an active advocate of public communication of the issue as the only way to start bringing the problem under control. I also write http://www.bedbugbeware.com and a few other websites. I have a dry sense of humour but having dealt with about 40,000+ cases in 15+ years I suspect anyone would be the same. I am happy to answer questions via the forum so that others can benefit from the advice but am unlikely to answer a PM other than to point out this statement, this is especially so with sample ID’s, please understand that after years on the front line I can become shell shocked by constant badgering. If you want to have a longer chat please ask for my email address as long strings of unformatted text are difficult for me to follow at the best of times, you may have noted that my posts tend to be well type set for clarity for this reason. If you wish me to answer a questions please have a look at all the sites listed on my profile first as well as the FAQ's as much of the common information is already online there. I am also the inventor of the Passive Monitor which is sold around the world under the PackTite Passive and from Ensystex. If you have found any of the images I share or answers given useful please consider leaving feedback on social media via Google+ or Facebook to help others avoid the pitfalls of misinformation that can exist online.
