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.


Dr. Bill Robinson speaking PE 1We had yet another great presentation from Dr. Bill Robinson at this year’s New York Pest Expo.  His presentation focused on fly biology and habits.

Dr. Robinson reminded us of the importance of fly management in both residential and commercial accounts. Flies carry microorganisms that cause disease and can become a public health problem. Control often requires the expertise of a pest control operator.
