Joe Barile PE 2013It was a while since Joe made a presentation at the New York Pest Expo and he received a huge welcome back reception. From all of us, thanks Joe for being a part of the New York Pest Expo once again and sharing your expertise with us!

Roaches are rebounding and it’s time to go over the fundamentals. We’ve been ignoring roaches at the conferences and Joe put them back where they belong: front and center. To really understand how to approach a cockroach infestation you have to think small. Cockroaches like warm, humid and hidden places. They live a very secretive life. They’re also extremely sensitive to touch. If they sense the slightest breeze they’ll run and hide. They live for three things: food, water, and shelter/breeding sites. Remove any one of these elements (especially water) and you will create enormous stress on their environment.


It’s National Bed Bug Week. What are you doing to make a difference? Might we suggest our Professional Workshop: The Future of Bed Bug Management this Thursday, April 25.

Jeff McGovern and Dr. Jeffrey Brown will be discussing alternative bed bug management techniques. Learn standards for assessment, monitoring and evaluation; master mechanical control options such as vacuuming, steaming and encasement; add effective 25b-exempt and other “green” products to your arsenal; and finally, learn all about the Cryonite System for freezing insects to death. You’ll have a chance to try out the system in the hands-on portion of the event. Don’t miss this great opportunity to be on the cutting edge. inAttend our Bed Bug Workshop April 25th and learn more about this amazing tool, the Cryonite System. cryonite ad2acryonite ad2bcryonite ad2c
