Hiring a Pest Management Professional
Posted: November 6, 2012
Recently, a carpet cleaning company applied a pesticide to a client's bedroom carpet, mattress and upholstered furniture. But the pesticide was intended for use in an industrial setting, not a home. State officials intervened and fined the firm for making the illegal application.
"If you hire someone to apply a pesticide in or around your home or business, it is important to select an experienced firm that is properly trained and licensed," says Kerry Richards, Ph.D., director of the Pesticide Education Program, Penn State University. "Otherwise you could be placing yourself and others at risk and potentially damage the environment."
