APRIL IS NATIONAL PEST MANAGEMENT MONTH

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) recognizes the pest management industry during April - National Pest Management Month. The NPMA is sharing pest prevention tips just in time for spring. 

Today’s quality of life are attributed to three things: better pharmaceuticals and vaccines, better sanitation, and better pest control, with pest control being an essential component in the protection of public health, food and property.

Cindy Mannes, vice president of public affairs at NPMA stated ““Pests carry and transmit many dangerous diseases, yet it’s hard for those of us who live in the U.S. to understand a world where better pest control does not exist. The industry has made significant advancements over the years to help reduce pest threats and provide more targeted and innovative solutions to customers, encouraging the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to help eliminate sources of food, water and shelter to help keep pests out.”

A proactive role by homeowners can help to protect their families and their property from pest infestations - April is the perfect time to pest-proof homes as spring brings an influx in pest activity.

The following are tips from the NPMA to help you pest proof your home:

  • Inspect the outside of the home for points of access for pests - pay special attention to utility pipes and seal small cracks and crevices with caulk and use steel wool to fill larger holes.
  • Keep grass cut low and trim tree branches, shrubbery and other vegetation so it is away from the house.
  • Clean out leaves and other debris from gutters to prevent stagnant water, which can provide breeding grounds for mosquitoes
  • Dispose of garbage regularly in a sealed trash bin.
  • Wipe down counters and sweep floors to remove crumbs and residue from spills in the kitchen and bathroom.
