Texas Rains Lead to Plenty of Jobs for PMPs


June 16, 2015

Looking for extra work? If so, head over to the Texas Panhandle, where insects are multiplying like crazy, thanks to the area’s above-average rainfall this year. Ants, cockroaches and mosquitoes in particular have invaded the homes of many and don’t seem to be leaving anytime soon, by the looks of it. Amarillo resident Bruce Burney, owner of Bugs Burney Pest Control, said in an interview with Amarillo’s ABC 7 News station that he expects to see a higher insect population through the summer, lasting until October or November. Of course, this is nothing but good news for pest management companies taking care of the bug problem. Local “bug men,” as Burney calls his team, have been working overtime to combat critters, Burney said. “There’s some days we’ll start at 4:30 in the morning, and we wont get off ’til 8 or 9 o’clock at night,” he said. All you pest management professionals out there, Texas needs you.
