Dr. Bill RobinsonIt was great to have Dr. Bill Robinson present again at the New York Pest Expo. Pest harborages were the main focus of his talk. He shared with us how proper pest identification leads to locating the precise harborage site which in turn leads to effective control with a minimum use of chemicals.

Simply put, once a harborage site is located we can treat and kill the pest. A harborage is not just a “hiding place;” it’s a protective fortress where the pest can gain access to food and water. Harborage provides shelter and often offers an ideal location for breeding.

Dan GordonDan was the special business speaker at the Expo. He encouraged us to be aware of our businesses’ Key Performance Indicators (KPI), critical for a company’s sustainability and growth. These are the numbers to track if we want to improve efficiencies.

Dan’s motto is “Work on your business. Not in your business.” As a business owner, you need to work on processes and procedures. Just because you’re a good Pest Management Professional (PMP) doesn’t mean you’re a good businessman. Work on improving your business acumen along with your technical skills.
