Bug Off Pest Control Center wanted to take some time to help Santa this year. Many of us have no idea what to get our loved ones and friends. If you have a PMP on your list this Holiday or want a little something for your own bug killing needs, we may have the perfect gift!

We are pest control operators! We kill the pests that pester our clients. We rid them of mice, bats, raccoons, spiders, ants, bedbugs and more! As the weather begins to cool, these critters look for shelter bringing with them disease and destruction.
When colder weather arrives we, as pest control operators, need to put on another hat, home weatherization expert! We know where they enter and how they do it. Why not prepare homes to be more defensive. Your clients don’t need voles or mice chewing away at their wiring, or mice running across their counters. We can help protect their families before the invasion.

Louis Sorkin, BCE was one of the esteemed speakers at the New York Pest Expo 2010. His presentation was, Uncommon insects rarely encountered by the PMP. Learn basic identification skills and proper handling techniques.
Louis presented slides on a variety of pest species challenging the crowd to identify them. It wasn’t as easy as you may have thought. Not everyone was aware that a female bedbug was larger than a male, for example.
The point Louis was making was to identify the species properly. In doing so, you educate the client without causing unnecessary concern and can effectively and efficiently treat the situation. Be sure to have a reference resource available when you are on the job.
It is always a pleasure to have Louis speak at the Pest Expo. Thank you Louis!
