Following are a couple of excerpts from Dr. Austin Frishman and Paul Bello’s soon to be published Cockroach Combat Manual II. They shared these experiences and others in the July 2013 Pest Management Professional Magazine. Two of their stories are published below but we encourage you to read the others in the original article.
The events you will read about are true. We witnessed them and share them with you for your benefit. But the primary purpose of relating these stories isn’t to be sensationalistic. It’s to stress to pest management professionals (PMPs) what might happen if people in our profession didn’t exist. It emphasizes how horrible a cockroach situation can become and the incredible horror humans must — or mistakenly think they must — endure daily in their homes. It underscores how important our work can be to others who depend on us. With current technology, there’s no excuse. Although it’s not a shame to have cockroaches, it’s a sin to persist with them. Never let this happen with your customers. Do what you can to correct it wherever it exists. Do your best.
