June 6, 2019 has been declared World Pest Day, a multinational event established to raise awareness among the public, government and media about the important role that the pest control industry plays in protecting health, food, property and the environment from pest health threats. Join pest control professionals across the world in recognition and celebration of the invaluable impact the industry has on our everyday lives and well-being. The Professional Pest Management Alliance has developed an exclusive toolkit of turnkey materials for PPMA Mainframe subscribers to use in their own publicity efforts on the international awareness day. The toolkit contains a customizable press release, Facebook and Twitter cover photos as well as profile frames, and suggested day-of social media content. PPMA members can access the toolkit here.


A special thanks to Orkin for their support of World Pest Day.
