NY Pest Expo 12'If there’s one city that can be described as resilient, New York is it. In the wake of Superstorm Sandy’s aggressive swipe of Northeast and Midwest, Manhattan defied expectations with its ability to bounce back in unbelievable time. The same canNYExpo 2012 be said of Bug Of Pest Control’s New York Pest Expo, which held its 10th Edition, Nov. 8, 2012. The weatherproof event attracted attendees from across the U.S. with an impressive roster of speakers for a one-day event. Plenty of exhibitors, including major pest management industry manufacturers and business support providers, also were on hand to showcase their products.

As always, all of us who attended the 2011 New York Pest Expo had a great presentation from Louis Sorkin, BCE, Entsult Associates, Inc.: “Bugs, Bugs and More Bugs: A Look at True Bugs”

Lou never ceases to impress us with his vast knowledge. He shared with us some great tips and advice and gastronomic experiences when it comes to bugs. (Just in time for lunch).


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!
