Dedication during COVID-19


May 24, 2020

A coronavirus pandemic is no match for pest management professionals (PMPs) who are dedicated to protecting public health. PMPs know the importance of safety all too well because it’s in their job descriptions, and they stepped up when much of the country shut down.

You continued to provide pest control services outdoors, as residential customers following stay-at-home mandates requested services for pests, such as rodents and wildlife, they could now see infesting their homes.

You ventured into homes where unchecked pest infestations could have a detrimental impact on the health of customers and the safety of their residences.

You added sanitizing and disinfecting services to ensure clean, safe work spaces for commercial accounts.
