| May 11, 2010

MECHANICSVILLE, Md. — Pinto & Associates, publishers of Techletter for pest control technicians, today announced a major milestone — 25 years of continuous publication.

“From the beginning, Techletter has been based on a very simple idea,” said entomologist Larry Pinto. “The pest control technician is the key player in pest control. Techletter is expressly written for those professionals whose skill determines if pest control service works, or if it doesn’t.”

Every two weeks, Techletter provides practical information presented in simple language. Each issue is four pages long and contains 3-5 focused and illustrated articles covering the latest pest control tactics, pest ID and habits, safety, equipment use, and other issues important to technicians today. There is no advertising and Techletter is always up-to-date, written just days before publication.

“We are so pleased that our subscribers have continued to support our commitment to pest control technician training,” said Sandy Kraft, the editor of Techletter . “Many of our subscribers have been with us from the beginning. We also provide an annual index and a free Quarterly Review, two pages of questions covering Techletter topics from the previous three months. At many companies Techletter and Quarterly Review are the core of in-house training.” 

Techletter has been serving pest control professionals throughout the country and around the world since 1985.
