PPMA aims to educate consumers on the importance of protecting against termites
With spring on the horizon, the industry is closely watching for signs of termite activity. After a rather unusual winter, swarms are expected to appear early and in force and companies are ready to respond. The Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA), which serves as the public outreach arm of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) is working to spread consumer awareness about termites during Termite Awareness Week, March 12-18, 2017. This annual designation is recognized by Chase’s Calendar of Events and is celebrated throughout the pest management industry. Using various media relations and social media tactics, PPMA will work to educate homeowners about the dangers of termites and how to best protect their homes.
