Action Pest Control Celebrates April As National Pest Management Month
April 7, 2012
Whether it’s ants, termites, spiders, fleas, bed bugs or rodents, pest management professionals help prevent pests from spreading disease, destroying our homes and property and contaminating our food and crops. This April, Action Pest Control is proud to observe National Pest Management Month, which is formally recognized each year by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). The observance recognizes the pest management industry’s contribution to society in protecting food, health and property from the harm and destruction of household pests and the safe use of pest management products.
“Working in an industry that is constantly evolving to combat different pests each year is a challenge,” says Kevin C. Pass, President. “National Pest Management Month provides an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of pest management and its crucial role in keeping our communities healthy and safe.”
National Pest Management Month has been recognized for more than 30 years and goes beyond saluting an industry to increasing public awareness about the serious threats pests can pose and the invested dedication pest management professionals have in protecting against such threats.
“In honor of National Pest Management Month, Action Pest Control is reminding our customers to take time this month to pest-proof their homes and properties,” says Pass. “Simple steps like sealing cracks around the outside of your home, trimming branches and shrubbery away from the home and reducing areas of moisture indoors can go a long way to help prevent pest problems. Homeowners should contact a pest professional if a pest infestation is suspected.”
As always, Action Pest Control is pleased to offer free pest and termite inspections in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois including: Evansville, Washington, Jasper, Indianapolis, IN, Bowling Green, Lexington, Louisville, Owensboro, KY.
