Perimeter pest control is one of the industry’s most popular service offerings. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, it has become even more essential as customers demand exterior-only and “no-contact” solutions to a wide array of pest problems. To assist PMPs in navigating this new business landscape, PCT presented “Under Siege: Perimeter Pest Control in the Midst of a Pandemic” featuring Board Certified Entomologist and noted author Stoy Hedges, editorial director of the Mallis Handbook of Pest Control.
In this Business Boosters educational session, sponsored by Bayer Environmental Science, Hedges shared how the industry is adapting its perimeter treatment practices in response to the challenges posed by the pandemic. In addition, he reviewed the most common types of pests found around structures, as well as discuss the non-chemical and treatment strategies involved in managing exterior pests.
