    Does anyone know of a bed bug info pamphlet or poster designed for children? I have a community service client with a need for such a product and have found lots of half-decent products in any number of languages but nothing in very plain language. Thank you. Sheree

    No! Please let us know if you find one.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Hi Sheree,

    One of the reasons why we went down the cartoon based graphics route is to have the ability to do exactly that.

    Its far from the top of my list of things that need doing but I am happy to help contribute if you get a group together willing to work on it.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC (legal requirements) 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 products.

    Thank you David for your offer. I think a collaborative team effort is the way to go here as there is a need in the marketplace. Perhaps we will have some more volunteers chime in 8).

    All I came up with is a pesticide info page and Pest World for Kids

    To get the ball rolling - some parameters to kick about:

    target audience - children 12 and under and/or mentally challenged adults
    message - bare basics of what to look for, what to do if spotted and/or ?
    tone - fun, playful,
    medium - info poster (letter size page is easier to download and print) or ?
    price point - free for anyone to download, distribute and print

    At the back of my mind, is the idea of a simple game to drive home the main points contained in the child friendly fact sheet, e.g. where to look, pick out the bed bug, etc.

    Ideas and 'pen to paper' welcome. Sheree
