We had another great presentation from Dr. Bill Robinson, B&G Equipment at the 2012 New York Pest Expo. This year he shared with us his expertise in the use, and often, misuse of insecticides.

According to Dr. Robinson, monitoring the use of insecticides is one of the most important parts of professional pest control today. Tracking product use and monitoring its application can help to save an operation a lot of money and effort.


Please note: We recently read this article on and would like to share it with you all in case you missed it.

Editor’s note: The following article was excerpted from The Service Technician’s Field Manual. See the article in the sidebar for information about this new book.
In professional pest control, emphasis is usually placed on the technology of killing pests, while the cost, or economics, of the process is often overlooked. However, designed into every application tool and insecticide is the concept of application economics. This concept considers how much insecticide is being applied, and how well the application tool works in terms of amount and cost. Application technology covers the control effectiveness of treatment, while application economics covers the cost effectiveness of it — both are important.
