Celebrate Termite Awareness Week, National Pesticide Safety Education Month


February 22, 2024

LOGO: PPMAThe Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA) is calling on the pest control industry to educate homeowners about termites during Termite Awareness Week, taking place March 3-9, 2024.

Recognized by Chase’s Calendar of Events, this annual event highlights the threat posed by termites, advises homeowners on the best ways to prevent an infestation and encourages them to work with a pest control professional.

“Our industry knows just how destructive termites can be, but most homeowners are not always aware of the extent of their threat,” said PPMA Executive Director Dr. Jim Fredericks. “When adjusted for inflation, the estimated annual cost of termite damage in the U.S. is approximately $6.8 billion. We need industry partners to help drive home this message, underscoring the importance of working with a pest control professional as termite control is not a do-it-yourself task.”

Companies can participate by utilizing #TermiteAwarenessWeek in social media posts or by resharing PestWorld social posts. PPMA also created a marketing toolkit exclusive to Mainframe subscribers on PPMAMainframe.org. The toolkit contains valuable materials, including a customizable press release, social media content, logos and headers, infographics and high-resolution photography and video assets.
