The Environmental Protection Agency Office of Pesticide Programs has posted the summary workgroup results and recommendations from the National Bed Bug Summit.
These are the available materials so far:
- Final Agenda (PDF)
- a public docket
- Summary of Workgroup Results (PDF)
- Summary of Recommendations Developed at the Summit (PDF)
The webinar of the morning of the first day of the summit will be available for viewing on April 24 according to the site, but that’s next Friday. I think they meant Tuesday the 21st.
The Pesticide Program Dialogue Committee will meet on April 22 and review the summit recommendations. This is not yet on this meeting’s agenda, which you can see here.
This is the bed bug summit page at EPA if you want to keep track or check back to download the webinar recording that will be available next Tuesday—or Friday!
This is a lot of material. I will read this over the weekend. I hope you will too. Come on, it’ll be fun. Please feel free to tell us what you think of these recommendations, let’s talk about them. Here’s another link to the PDF so you don’t have to scroll up!
I thought it would be possible to submit public comments to the docket, but I see no comment icon enabled. I hope this is not a Mac problem?
