Why do consumers use professional pest control services? Perhaps more importantly, why don’t they? These and other questions were answered in a national survey commissioned by the Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA), which serves as NPMA's consumer education and public outreach arm. The group sought to measure the attitudes that motivate the use and non-use of professional pest control by American homeowners.

As you are all certainly aware, today is Election Day. This seemingly endless Presidential campaign cycle will finally come to a conclusion, but there are also important Congressional races that will determine the majority in both the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. NPMA strongly encourages everyone to be engaged and to vote. Many of you may already know your polling information or even possibly voted (this morning, early or absentee) but for those who need to "double check" please confirm your polling information by clicking here.
NPMA will provide analysis following the elections on how we anticipate the results will impact our industry. Again, make sure you get out and vote!
