    June is National Safety Month, so, we should take the time to review the importance of the personal protective products that we all use every day to make our jobs easier, cleaner and safer.

    Respirators are important tools of our trade, so it is important to understand their proper use. OSHA regulates respirator use in the workplace, and requires the use of NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health) tested and approved respirators. Respirators come in two basic types: air purifying, which use a filtering element— usually a cartridge and filter combination— and air supplying, which pump in clean breathable air from a source a safe distance from the user. Air purifying respirators are the most commonly used in our business. These respirators utilize prefilter...

Can you tell the difference between a German cockroach and a Field cockroach? Can you accurately identify the Common Bedbug, keeping in mind that Swallow bugs and Bat bugs also routinely occur in structures? One of the best resources for you in this effort is the Pest ID program on PestWeb, with hundreds of structural, turf, an...

    Properly Dispose of Fluorescent Lamps

    With the latest movie adaptation of Lewis Carrol’s “Alice in Wonderland,” we are reminded to mention the importance of having a fluorescent lamp pollution prevention program. The expression “Mad as a Hatter” comes from the twitching and dementia once common among hatters who used to dip felt into mercuric nitrate to soften it. Did you know, ALL fluorescent lamps (aka, tubes, bulbs) contain mercury (Hg)? Mercury, regardless of quantity, is a toxic metal that in certain forms can accumulate in living tissue and cause adverse health effects, and must be dealt with in a specific way. Also, did ...
