Coronavirus: Message to Our Customers
During this uncertain time, our customers’ health and well-being is our highest priority. As we continue monitoring developments related to Coronavirus (COVID-19), rest assured, we are committed to doing everything we can to ensure our customers and employees are safe.
Wondering if mosquitoes, ticks or rodents can transmit COVID-19? Experts are saying no. Learn more from this article by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) by clicking here.
The professional pest control industry, an essential service, is responsible for the protection of public health, food and property. We play a vital role in protecting our nation's public health and food supply. Pests can spread diseases such as West Nile virus, Lyme disease, salmonellosis, hantavirus and encephalitis. Stinging insects force half a million people to the emergency room every year. Cockroach and rodent allergens trigger asthma attacks in children; rodents contaminate or consume about 20% of the world's food supply and bed bugs can cause allergic reactions. The importance of the pest control industry to the nation as an essential service cannot be understated.
Here at Halt Pest Control, our team is trained, tested and certified in the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Our Technicians routinely employ the use of respirators, eye protection, gloves, and clothing to conform with safety requirements established by EPA and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration. We stand ready to continue our fight against pests and diseases. With Covid-19 on the mind of all US citizens, and the world, we want to be sure we continue to serve our community in our battle with the diseases spread by pests.
