Entomology Society of America holds 58th Annual Meeting

Over 5000 Entomologists & Students converged on San Diego for five days earlier this month.

The ESA meet annual to give out awards and disperse new scientific information on all types of insects.

One of the hot topics this year was Bed Bugs of course.

Ralph H. Maestre BCE one of our three (3) Certified Entomologists attended.
He was impressed by the studies done on the Bed Bugs resistance to various pest control products.

Several studies discussed the use of Heat, Steam & Freezing techniques. The studies found Heat & Steam as the preferred method of eradication over freezing which was found to be less effective.

Magic has always believed that Steam & Heat were more effective than freezing. We been using industrial steamers and portable Heat Bags in the field since the beginning of the Bed Bug Epidemic.

Magic has also constructed a Heat Chamber at one of our facilities which is used to eradicated both Bed Bugs and Wood Destroying Insects.

The ESA also released there first journal in 39 years, The Journal of Integrated Pest Management which is free to view online.
