FAIRFAX, Va. -  Earlier this month, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) NPMA introduced its redesigned website, www.npmapestworld.org, to the industry. 

“While our Web site has a new look, the real change is in its approach,” stated NPMA Executive Vice President Rob Lederer.  “We've enhanced the architecture of the site, allowing for a clearer structure, simplified navigation and improved search functions—making finding information easier than before.”
The new site offers several new features, including:

  • PestPedia, an extensive database of news articles, fact sheets, Library Updates, and many more resources to help pest management professionals identify and learn about a particular pest.
  • An enhanced Find-a-Pro form that allows NPMA members to update their online listings, ensuring that their company is found by potential customers.
  • Archived recordings of the popular NPMA on Demand webinar series.
  • Consolidated information on the legislative and regulatory issues impacting the industry.

Over the next few months, NPMA will introduce new features and improved navigation on the site.
