PEST MANAGEMENT INDUSTRY VISITS U.S. CONGRESS

 

Last month hundreds of pest management professional went to Washington, D.C. to educate Congress on the important role the pest control industry plays in protecting the public from household pests. In Las Vegas as well as other areas of the nation common household pests invade our living space - pest control professionals come in and eliminate infestations that cam harm our health, food supplies and property.

 

It is National Pest Management Month – it seems like the perfect time to share with you the type of work pest professionals do every day to help us have a better quality of life.

 

  • The public health officials attribute better pest control along with better vaccines and pharmaceuticals, and better sanitation in aiding in the higher standards we have for the quality of life we live.

 

  • Pests could destroy more than 50 percent of our food crops if we did not have pest management practices.

 

  • Rodents can contaminate or consume around 20 percent of the world’s food supply – they also carry fleas and ticks that can carry disease.

 

  • 45,000 people are bitten by rats each year. Not only can they transmit diseases such as rat bite fever, salmonella, trichinosis, murine typhus and the plague – they can chew through electrical wiring in your home.

 

  • More than 2 million people are allergic to insect stings according to the American Collage of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.

 

  • There is probably no segment of the food industry that could comply with federal health and sanitation regulations without a pest management program in place.

 

  • Pests can destroy homes and buildings – termites alone cause over $5 billion in damaged property annually.
