The Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA) is working to educate consumers about the dangers and health threats associated with rats and mice during Rodent Awareness Week, this October 18-24, 2020.
With Americans altering their regular activities in response to the global pandemic, many food sources previously relied upon by rodents can no longer provide a steady supply, forcing them to move indoors in droves in search of sustenance. According to new research, there were more than 11 million online engagements on the topic of rats as a health and home issue in July 2020, and a 16 percent increase in rodent sightings in the kitchen in homes across America during that same timeframe.
PPMA will be dedicating all @PestWorld social media pages to sharing important rodent information, facts and prevention tips during Rodent Awareness Week. Pest control companies can help further the cause by focusing their social media content on rodents throughout the week as well and use the hashtag #RodentAwareness in all posts. This year, PPMA will also be unveiling a new and exciting consumer campaign to commemorate the week – so stay tuned for details!
