LOS ANGELES — Isotech Pest Management, a provider of municipal, institutional and commercial pest control and extermination services, recently was sourced by NBC Los Angeles as part of its investigation of a growing number of Asian Stink Bug infestations throughout Southern California. Isotech C.E.O. and “Verminators” star Mike Masterson, was interviewed for the news segment. Masterson talked growing problem, and talked about the possibility of it becoming an epidemic. Video of the segment can be found on the NBC Los Angeles website.

Regarding the NBC news segment, Masterson said, “We have been exterminating stink bugs for years, and have been tracking and seeing a steady increase in this particular species in recent months.”

 Masterson added, “Asian Stink Bugs are adaptable creatures that can live on any number of diets, so they tend to be quite hearty. While they don’t typically carry diseases, they could potentially be an issue for agriculture in the California, so we do need to take them seriously both as a company and as a state.”
