As we prepare for the 16th Annual New York Pest Expo we want to thank Pest Management Professional Magazine for helping to highlight our event and speakers. Here’s a little introduction from them.

“The 16th edition of the New York Pest Expo is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

More research is done on termites than on any other pest. There’s always something new to learn about this enigmatic creature. That’s why we must always stay on top of the latest information. We can’t afford to be complacent about what we’ve learned, because our knowledge base changes so quickly. Never take termite control for granted.

A great weapon in the war against bed bugs, ActiveGuardT mattress and box spring liners are patented, fitted covers proven to kill bed bugs within 72 hours after installation in both lab and real-life scenarios. This translates into no live bugs crawling around under you while you sleep. Since the active liner goes on the mattress or box spring in the same way as a fitted sheet, installation is significantly easier with no ripping or tearing. Cutting edge research demonstrates that within only 10 minutes of contact, bed bugs tend not to feed and females do not drop their eggs, resulting in fewer bites and significant population control.   Its continuous protection, easy installation and success rate make ActiveGuard a natural choice for PMPs, public health and housing agencies, shelters, universities, property managers, hotels and other transient lodging facilities.

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.
