    Hi all,

    We are CASTING for a four-part documentary on infestations. In one of our episodes we will be exploring the bed bug problem in the GTA. We are looking for personal stories of real people that have been affected by a bed bug infestation. We are hoping to raise awareness about how serious this epidemic has become. If you would like to be featured in our show, please contact me at the information below or email stephanielynnrobinson@gmail.com.

    A bit about us - Stornoway has produced award winning science based and environmental documentaries for major broadcasters internationally such as CBC, Discovery Channel, ZDF, Channel V, etc.

    Thanks so much and have a lovely week,

    if i didn't think my kids would be harassed at school i would totally do this. Live in a home just outside the city. I think everyone thinks it happens just in the city sadly no one is safe.

    Hi,

    For anyone considering this I would strongly suggest you ask who the experts and specialists they are working with are. I have narrowly avoided a few of my "in need of help" clients being subject to documentaries akin to "billy the exterminator".

    I am all for public education and raising awareness but there is a huge difference between working with people like Lou or Paul and bozo billy the exterminator.

    I am happy to answer questions in public but will not reply to message sent directly or via my company / social media. I am here to help everyone and not just one case at a time.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro

    You may also want to consider the general tone of the show; http://www.motionserved.com/gallery/Infestation-Stornoway-Productions/1659464

    I'm getting really tired of all these identikit "Euw, teh Superbugz!" shows. Just slapping on a Canadian VO doesn't make it new.

    you should compensate the people who lost their furniture and health or get them a good PCO treatment if they still have the problem if they are willing to appear in your film

    Documentary should not be about exploiting the suffering of others, if it is you should call it something else, like reality TV....

    I am with David and Koebner on this one

    BTW, someone else in TO had the same idea, 3 years ago, they seemed more humane in their approach however
