EHS Rodent Control Conference Update

25 Sep 2009

Posted by John D. Stellberger

EHS was selected as one of just 14 leading pest control firms to attend the rodent control focus meeting in Denver, CO. In the room there were 10 entomologists & two biologists from various U.S. states (MA, CA, NY, FLA, TX, OH, MI, CO, AL) combining for over 220 years industry experience! I was honored that EHS & I were selected to attend this meeting.

New rodenticide active ingredients, trapping devices, methods, bait stations, control measures, etc. were discussed. Many of these products may shape future rodent control efforts.  What the general public does not know is that pest control is a science and we are always looking for new research, tools, and data to fight pests that affect public health and property. Rodents are a formidable foe and we must use research & technological advancements to implement better control practices.

Pest Management Conference for Rodent Control

25 Sep 2009

Posted by John D. Stellberger

Blogging at 10,000 feet! Isn't technology amazing?! I guess you can call this the geeky entomolosist version of the mile high club! I am in route to Denver, CO to meeting with top professionals from industry leading pest management firms from around the U.S. We are getting together to discuss innovative new produts for rodent control as well as discuss rodent control issues facing our industry. EHS is proud to be selected as a firm that will help shape new products and initiatives for rodent control in the future. Rodents (rats & mice) are a formidable foe that warrants serious discussions on ways to better control them. I will update you on our findings in a future post.

Welcome to the EHS Blog!  In 1985 Environmental Health Services, Inc. was founded on a commitment to not only provide effective and state of the art pest management solutions for customers but to also be stewards of the environment. EHS pioneered concepts such as preventive exclusion and utilization of low impact products which have now become industry standards. EHS believes there is strong value in providing a solution rather than a band aid approach (treating the symptoms) to any pest problem.  Using these simple ideals EHS has since become one of Massachusetts' and Rhode Island's most respected pest management companies.

Indian Meal Moths Eat non-Human Food too!

Jamaica Plain, MA - Indian Meal moths

The frantic call was for clothes moths in their basement. Innundated & thousands was the desciption. It was an early morning appointment & with 24oz of Dunkin in me, I was up for the task. Ironically there was no exaggeration by the customer, the basement was a cloud of fluttering annoyance. The worst I have seen in my 21yr career! Turns out the were Indian Meal Moths, a food not fabric pest. Despite the denial of no food being kept in the basement my inspection found the source. An old 1/2 used bag of bird seed! Bag thrown away, pest problem SOLVED!

Moral of the story? Food to Indian Meal Moths can be non-human i.e. bird seed, dog food, potporri, etc. Keep it in air tight containers or better yet, throw it away if you have not used it since the Reagan administration!
