Standard Pest had the opportunity to give back by donating time at Foodbank of NY. Our techs were able to spend some time at the pantry location where they stocked shelves and prepared/served food. It was a good cause and the techs had a great time. Heres a photo of two of Standards techs Angard & Solomon preping for lunchtime.

Moroever, he says, oftentimes a food establishment's need for "storage and, worse, refuse storage exceeds their alloted space, which can then spill over into building areas. These establishments can tax the waste system and discolor the exterior sidewalk with pest attracting grease and debris."

Every month we have tech training meetings. The topics of this past meeting were stored product pests and customer service. The next night at home my wife, we found some beetles and she put me to task to find the source. We had been seeing one or two for the past few weeks but now I had to solve the problem. After removing many items from our cabinets, we identified the source, an old box of pancake mix. It was great to actually put some skills to use and give my wife some peace of mind.

WASHINGTON — The biggest bedbug outbreak since World War II has sent a collective shudder among apartment dwellers, college students and business travelers across the nation.
The bugs — reddish brown, flat and about the size of a grain of rice — suck human blood. They resist many pesticides and spread quickly in certain mattress-heavy buildings, such as hotels, dormitories and apartment complexes.
Two shelters have closed temporarily in Charlotte, N.C. , because of bedbugs, a Yahoo chat group dedicates itself to sufferers and countless bedbug blogs provide forums for news, tips and commiseration. State inspectors say that more emphasis may be needed to tackle the creatures.
Federal officials have taken notice of the resurgence. Last month, the Environmental Protection Agency held its first-ever bedbug summit, and now a North Carolina congressman wants to take on the insect.
Democratic Rep. G.K. Butterfield just introduced legislation that would authorize $50 million that's already in the Department of Commerce budget to train health inspectors how to recognize signs of the insects.
