Don’t miss the next presentation of NPMA’s technical webinar series - Tick Management Update: A Report on Tick Research, Resistance and Control. This webinar will be presented live on Wednesday, May 31 at 2:00pm EST.


Due to an unseasonably warm winter, tick populations are predicted to be much higher this summer than previous years. This has generated wide-spread concern because ticks can spread multiple diseases including Lyme and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. In this highly informative seminar, Dr. Amanda Eiden provides a comprehensive update on tick resistance, biology and control strategies to help you better manage this challenging pest.

It's kind of a given if you live in North Carolina.  There will be bugs and there will be a lot of them.  Though, fire ants are some of the worst.  They're so small you can't see them, but if they bite, you'll feel the sting for days.

For the fourth year in a row, the Atlanta area tops pest control leader Orkin’s list of Top 50 Mosquito Cities, followed by Washington, DC and Chicago. Twenty-one metro areas in the Southeast are included in the ranking, which is the most of any region in the United States.
