Explained about Professional Pest Control

The EPA issued a warning to customers to avoid insect extermination services that make “unrealistic claims of efficacy or low cost” due to health and safety concerns posed by the misuse of pest control chemicals by unlicensed or poorly trained pest controllers and unqualified contractors seeking to benefit from public fear.Last July, a pest control company in Newark, New Jersey, was accused of using chemicals that were not licenced for residential use. Technicians sprayed potent chemicals on mattresses and children’s toys when treating 70 homes and apartment units for bed bugs. Last June in Cincinnati, Ohio, an unlicensed bed bug exterminator sprayed an apartment complex with an industrial pesticide, sending seven residents to the hospital and leading public health officials to put the property under quarantine.If you wish to learn more about this, visit Residential Pest Control Services.

The NPMA recently created Best Management Practices for Bed Bugs (BMP) to serve as a guide for both the industry and customers in the hopes of preventing such accidents. Consumers can employ only trained and licenced pest management companies, according to a list of customer tips given in the BMP, to protect their health and safety and ensure that the pest control services they receive are safe and reliable. The NPMA also advises customers to give licenced pest control companies that have earned Quality certification preferential consideration, meaning that they meet the industry’s highest technological, educational, and ethical standards. Pest control is a daunting task. In an ideal world, pests such as mosquitoes, mice, and the like will not be present in our homes at all – but let’s face it, life isn’t perfect. Once pests have gained access to your home, it can be difficult to get rid of them, and their existence can have a negative impact on your health, comfort, and even your land! The longer you wait to address the problem, the worse it will get.
