The fourth and final humanitarian delegation of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) recently completed its mission to Haiti. Over the past year, NPMA provided much-needed assistance to several facilities in Port-au-Prince through its collaboration with the Haitian Minister of Environment, a Haitian pest management company and hospital and orphanage administrators. In the aftermath of the January 2010 earthquake, pest infestations had become a serious threat to human health, especially in places such as hospitals and orphanages. NPMA used its resources to minimize entry points for pests, purchase products designed to prevent pest infestations in buildings, and to train Haitian pest control workers so they can properly perform pest control operations as the country continues its recovery. Learn more about this NPMA initiative in the following video interview with NPMA Executive Vice President Rob Lederer.
