PHILADELPHIA - Two pest management professionals won prizes at PestWorld 2012 in Boston courtesy of FMC Professional Solutions, the company announced.
Lauraine DeFazio, of Pestex, Newton, Mass., won a free trip to Legislative Day in March in Washington D.C. Joe Cantu, of the Bug Master, Austin, Texas, won a bed bug package containing FMC's Verifi bed bug detector, a quart of Transport Mikron insecticide, a can of Talstar insecticide, a can of CB-40 insecticide and a container of Cynoff Dust insecticide.
FMC sponsored the second general session at PestWorld, and at its booth, each PMP who voted on topics relevant to the industry filled out a card for random drawing for a trip to Legislative Day. PMPs spotted wearing an "I Voted" button on the trade show floor were entered for a second random drawing for the bed bug product package. DeFazio and Cantu were the winners.
DeFazio said she was excited to be going to Legislative Day, and Cantu said he was eager to start using the bed bug products.
Topping the list of the issues that mattered most to PMPs was “Affordable Healthcare for Employees due to the Affordable Healthcare Act.” Coming in second was “New Pyrethroid Regulations.” Third place winner was “Increasing Profits Despite High Gas Prices.”
