Pests that vector disease continue to threaten public health on a global scale. In the United States, alone, disease cases from mosquitoes, ticks and fleas have tripled over the last 13 years, according to a May 2018 report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The public needs the pest management industry to be a strong first line of defense against public health pests.
As the public looks to the pest management industry for help, it is crucial that companies are equipped with the resources they need to build science-based, effective and commercially-viable services. QualityPro created a suite of Public Health certifications to help companies do just that, while also ensuring that technicians have the knowledge to perform those services through training and testing.
To oversee the creation of the Public Health service certifications, QualityPro assembled a task force of representatives from the National Pest Management Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Mosquito Control Association, Entomological Society of America, National Environmental Health Association, a vector control district and five pest control companies. QualityPro thanks these organizations for their commitment to creating an outstanding program.
