April is National Pest Management Month

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) celebrates April as National Pest Management Month, an observance that has been recognized by the President of the United States for nearly 30 years. National Pest Management Month celebrates the pest management industry’s societal contribution in its protection of food, health and property from the threats posed by pests.   “During National Pest Management Month, the NPMA encourages homeowners to learn more about pest management and to take steps to prevent infestations before they occur,” says Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the NPMA.

Pests are determined to find a way inside your New England home in search of food and shelter. Common household pests such as roaches, ant’s, rodents, ticks, bees and fleas can pose a serious risk to your property and the health and well being of your family. As a homeowner you must actively take steps to remove conditions conducive to pests to prevent further spread and ultimately rid pests from your home.
