    Pest needs food and water to survive in your home, by reducing the food sources you can greatly reduce pest populations and prevent competition with pest control baits. #pestcontroltraining #pestcontrol #pests

    You’ve heard a million times. The label is the law. The label is the law. That’s right. However, the label is NOT the entire law. Stephen discusses a topic that is actually a bit more complicated.

    Why misusing a product does not get you pest control no matter how much you spray even a double dose

    Why misusing a product does not get you pest control no matter how much you spray even a double dose

    I have seen pest control technicians misapply, over-apply, and use more than label rate and still fail to get control, why because more isn’t better. using a product in a safe and effective manner in selecting the right formulation for the target pest based on pest biology, not pesticide bias. IPM Integrated pest management has been proven to control and prevent pests better than spray services alone. Utilizing a holistic approach versus a single active ingredient with a single mode of action.

A real game changer!

This podcast has been my lifeline in the pest control industry. The knowledge and resources provided is amazing.I would pay for this. It’s that good.Frank covers everything you could imagine from the sales aspect to the technicians work to the route planning to the weekly news and events around the pest world etc. this podcast is my number one source for everything I need to know pest related. My company provided excellent trainer for me but this podcast is a huge supplement to that training. I listen to it in the truck between route stops and if I come across a problem that I haven’t dealt with yetThis is the first place I looked for advice. Five stars and a heartfelt thank you to Frank and everyone involved.

Best pest control podcast

Frank is the man. He shares so much valuable information and his enthusiasm for pest control is contagious. I’ve leaned to such from listening to Pest Geek. I hope to be that 1% that Frank talks about who actually takes his advice, because I believe that if you listen to what Frank is saying and implement it you will be successful in growing a pest control company. This is the best podcast out there for people who are struggling trying to learn the pest control game and build a successful pest control business.
