Animal Planet Asks: What’s the Worst Home Infestation Job You’ve Had?

Problems & Solutions, International News

Made for Animal Planet, this documentary will explore the natural history of some of the creatures that hide, bite, roost, burrow and make themselves at home in other peoples’ homes.

| June 16, 2010

Darlow Smithson Productions, a documentary film company based in London UK, is working on a new film, and would like to speak with pest management professionals in the United States. The firm is looking for the most extreme infestations PMPs have had to deal with in homes across America -- infestations and situations that have made your skin crawl.

Made for Animal Planet, this documentary will explore the natural history of some of the creatures that hide, bite, roost, burrow and make themselves at home in other peoples’ homes. Through speaking with the residents who have been impacted on by their unwanted visitors, with entomologists and the PMPs who attempted to combat the problem, the documentary will explore the natural history of why and how the infestation came to be there.

Infestations can be past or present, and cover bats, bees, roaches, mice, bed bugs, and anything else that might have caused big and life impacting problems over time for your customers.

Filming begins this summer, so if you’ve had a job that you just can’t forget and would like to share, then please jot down a few lines on your experience and contact Nina Bailey today at: nina.bailey@darlowsmithson.com. Visit www.darlowsmithson.com to learn more about the film company.
