Info For Hotels


NOBBEL stands for the National Organization of Bed Bug Education for Lodging.

Using guidelines set forth by National Pest Management Association (NPMA), NOBBEL has created an online training and certification program for the lodging industry to deal with the growing bed bug epidemic.

Our mission is two-fold:
1. To educate the public and the lodging industry about the bed bug epidemic.
2. To offer bed bug training and certifications for the lodging industry to build consumer confidence.
