Environmental Health Services (EHS) is highlighted in the Feb. 10 episode (9 p.m. EST) of the Animal Planet program ‘Infested.’ The episode, titled "Spreading Too Fast," follows Environmental Health Services in its war against rats that invaded a residential home in Jamaica Plain, Mass., a suburb on the outskirts of Boston.

EHS is highlighted in this show because of its creative thinking and genuine concern for the customer, basically going above and beyond what is expect to solve a serious pest issue. In the episode EHS Staff Entomologist George Williams works closely with John Meaney, principle health inspector, City of Boston, Inspectional Services Department and the Boston Water & Sewer Commission as rats are suspected of entering through the city sewer system.

EHS Vice President Sabrina Key said, “This cooperative effort with city agencies highlights the working relationships we have and shows how diligent we are at solving even the most difficult pest problems.”

EHS President John Stellberger added, “We are delighted to be featured on such a respected educational channel as the Animal Planet. Their commitment to quality television programs is universally respected.”
