Stephen Doggett

My name is Stephen Doggett, and I am a Senior Hospital Scientist based in Sydney, specializing in Medical Entomology. With a particular focus on the rise and impact of bed bugs in Australia, I have dedicated my career to understanding these pests and finding effective solutions to manage and control them. My extensive research and collaboration with pest management professionals have led to the development of a comprehensive Code of Practice for the Control of Bed Bugs, which is now in its third edition.

Research and Publications

Over the years, I have published numerous articles on bed bugs in both industry and scientific journals
, contributing to the growing body of knowledge on these resilient pests. My research covers various aspects of bed bug biology, behavior, and control, providing valuable insights for pest management professionals and the general public alike.

Code of Practice for the Control of Bed Bugs

Recognizing the need for standardized guidelines in addressing bed bug issues, I collaborated with Pest Managers to develop a Code of Practice for the Control of Bed Bugs. Now in its third edition, the code serves as a comprehensive resource for pest management professionals, outlining best practices for bed bug detection, treatment, and prevention.

The code has been instrumental in raising industry standards and promoting the adoption of effective, evidence-based bed bug control strategies in Australia. By sharing this knowledge, I hope to contribute to the global effort to combat the rising prevalence of bed bugs in cities around the world.

Global Lessons and Collaboration

Understanding the factors contributing to Australia's high bed bug population and the collaborative solutions developed to address this issue can be valuable for other regions, including London, the UK, and Europe. There is a pressing need to address imbalances in service provision, awareness, and attitudes in pest management, and to foster a collaborative approach between stakeholders in the accommodation industry.

By learning from the experiences of other countries and sharing best practices, we can develop more effective strategies to prevent and control bed bug infestations, ensuring a better quality of life for all.
