‘Tis the season for acts of kindness, and pest management professionals are starting out strong.
Hinton Pest Control Ltd, a pest control company located across the pond in the United Kingdom, has stepped up to help out local food banks prevent unwanted pest infestations this holiday season, reports Worcester News.
Hinton provided free site surveys and advice to food banks in six cities to ensure the food donated does not attract unwanted pests. Though the food banks already have strict guidelines to protect supplies, these inspections are just an extra precaution ahead of the busy holiday season.
These food banks have provided more than 6,500 people with three days’ emergency food between April 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015.
These surveys and consultations are part of National Pest Prevention Week, an initiative designed to increase public awareness of all pests, how they can be avoided and the value of using expert controllers.
