National Pest Control Month is happening. April is a time where we have an entire month dedicated to raising awareness towards pest management. Thats right, a whole month dedicated to pest control. Pest Control and Pest Management have been around since the 1800’s when their role in keeping the plague at bay in Europe was paramount in the health of the other 50% that didn’t die. If it had not been for the attention of the ‘rat catchers’ it would have surely spread even further. The Pest Control industry is committed to protecting the health of the community. Some of the ways in which these roles have changed are vast and some are exactly the same from the 1800’s.
National Pest Control Month
One of the highlights we focus on heavily during April, as the Spring season takes full force, is the topic of pest control. Today we control mice and rat populations to bring the threat of disease down very similar to the way it all began. Today, an even greater responsibility lies in part in the hands of the pest control industry to protect as U.S. Pest says, “Protect what matters most”. The pollinators are at an all time threat and our efforts as an industry can stave off any future downfalls of our industry as well as help educate and ensure our industry keeps the highest standards.
One of the common misconceptions is pest control being a threat to our communities. During National Pest Control Month, we are trying to educate the local communities. The truth is that the misapplication of pesticides will cause and has caused damage more than the products themselves. Most noteworthy, most of the professionals in the pest control industry are committed to protecting the health and property from woo destroying organisms. I say most, because every industry has those that are just in it for greed and power.
“Pests are a dangerous threat to our Nashville and Tennessee community, and we are working tirelessly to ensure each and every threat is handled with the highest performance standards”. Erica Brister, U.S. Pest Protection. “Even though this month is about the industry, its a great time to remind homeowners of the value and importance of hiring a professional to perform regular pest control as well as inspections”.
Springtime in Tennessee brings warmer weather and insect and pest activity to awareness. Consequently, it brings out termites as well. Termites alone cause over $5 billion dollars of damage each and the best part about termite damage is it is 100% preventable.
