Welcome to the all new Bed Bug Foundation website!

The Bed Bug Foundation is an independent organisation, which raises bedbug awareness through communication and education. We provide information and advise to home-owners and businesses alike, to help combat the stigma and financial and emotional cost that bedbugs can bring.

Whether we like it or not, bedbugs are on the rise throughout the world, both in our homes and in accommodation provided to us.  ‘What is a bedbug?’, ‘Do I have bedbugs?’, ‘How do I get rid of bedbugs?’; these are just some of the questions that the Foundation website will help you find the answers to.

As you can see, we are currently in the midst of a major website rebuild. The new site will offer a lot more flexibility, making it much easier for us to keep the content up to date. This will enable us to provide you with the latest information on the best products, services and strategies for the management of bedbug infestations.

The Bed Bug Foundation website is also the home of the European Code of Practice for the Management of Bedbug Infestations. Version 2 of the code is now complete and is in the final stages of type setting before publication. The English version of the code will be released in Jan 2013 via pdf download from this site. The process of translating the code into other European languages is also under way. As other European versions are completed they will be made available through this site.
