Termites are known for their voracious wood-based diets, but what happens when they encounter common items like shoes and bath towels? PPMA’s newest video project, “Will They Eat It?” will reveal just how destructive termites really are and show homeowners that these pests are capable of chewing through much more than just wood. The 6-part series premieres on Monday, July 8th on the PestWorld Facebook and YouTube pages, as well as the “Will They Eat It?” hub. We’ll also be releasing an exclusive toolkit of turnkey materials to help investors share the eye-opening results with their own followers and fans.
Get a sneak peek of our first episode, during which we’ll explore what these silent destroyers do when introduced to fast food.

NPMA is working with stakeholders to ensure that the needs of the structural pest management industry are met when states submit revised Certification and Training plans to EPA. Due to the unique nature of structural pest management use patterns and emerging technologies, NPMA recommends that states, tribes, territories and federal agencies impacted by the revised rule engage with the structural pest management industry to ensure that certification plans submitted to EPA do not result in unintended burdens or negative consequences to industry and that practical and workable solutions are identified before the submission of certification plans to EPA for review and approval. The structural pest management industry is a willing resource to help states better understand how our uses and treatment methods are significantly different from other applicators. Additionally, given the infrequent opportunities for rule revision and statutory amendments in most states, stakeholders input should be sought out and considered from both national (NPMA) and local (state pest management associations) levels to identify proactive changes that could increase consistency and efficiencies in the state regulatory process.

The SMASH Act – one of NPMA’s issues during our 2019 Legislative Day – has been folded into the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA) which was signed into law last week. The broad package covers many areas of public health, but NPMA was particularly invested in the Smash Act, as it requires consultation with the industry as part of a report of vector borne diseases spread by mosquitos. NPMA partnered with the Vector Based Disease Network (VBDN) to help support passage of the SMASH Act and by extension, PAHPA. NPMA is proud to support the betterment of public health, and looks forward to continuing to work with the VBDN and members of Congress on other public health issues.

Let’s Grow Leaders
Your team can help you build better ideas — but it takes confidence and humility to make it happen.
Companies spend big money on developing leaders, yet research shows that 50% to 60% of executives fail to achieve the strategy they were hired to execute within 18 months of taking the job.
The study says that more than half of the insects carry bacteria strains that are known as 'superbugs' that are resistant to antibiotics.
