Why do we all need to be careful?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), approximately 10,000 children a year are accidentally exposed to mouse and rat baits.
Every day in the United States, 87 people die as a result of unintentional poisoning, and another 2,277 are treated in emergency departments.
Drug overdose death rates in the US have more than tripled since 1990.
In 2010, poison control centers reported receiving calls about 2.4 million human poison exposure cases.

Eco-Effective Pest Control.
As individuals across the world make great strides to preserve our planet and increase consumer awareness for environmentally responsible initiatives, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) is excited to offer the world’s largest and most credible green certification program for pest management professionals – GreenPro.
The GreenPro certification means that your pest management provider must comply with a multitude of qualifications to ensure that you receive a safe and effective service each time they arrive at your door.
Established in 1994, the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) is an EPA partnership program that works with the nation’s pesticide-user community to promote Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices.
ProBest Pest Management Gold membership is reserved for PESP’s outstanding environmental stewards. These members’ demonstrated commitment to pesticide risk reduction makes them models for other PESP members. Gold members may develop an IPM strategy, demonstrate significant and sustained progress in reducing pesticide risks, and independently measure the progress of their IPM implementation.
Debunking myths especially of the INTERNET…
Most of us have seen the commercial on TV that indicates that everything you read on the Internet is absolutely, unequivocally without a doubt TRUE and CORRECT!!!! Well I hope most of us realize it is just plain and simply not true. ProBest Pest Management is a Gold Member of the EPA’s Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program or PESP. We receive a newsletter quarterly and this newsletter this quarter is about a few of those items – puts to rest the myth about rodents and the New York subway system – too bad it doesn’t talk about that huge alligator that lives there.
It provides some great information on “Ten Steps to Pest-Proofing”
