The new site will feature articles and content from an array of
expert sources from both the NPMA, including Vice President of
Public Affairs Missy Henriksen with her blog, "The Bug Lady," and
outside industry sources, such as Realtors, home inspectors and
meteorologists. A medical expert will also routinely contribute
content on pest-related health issues, including salmonella, Lyme
disease, West Nile virus, hantavirus, and asthma and allergies.
"PestWorld.org is designed to provide users with a complete view
of pests and the health and property risks they pose," says
Henriksen. "We want to ensure that our visitors are able to find
all of the information they need about their pest problems.
Visitors can browse through expert-authored articles, photo and
video libraries, pest guides, prevention tips and health articles
to give them a full understanding of pests and the dangerous
implications they can have on our homes and families."
Education remains a priority. "We want our visitors to leave
feeling empowered to tackle pests, either by taking preventative
measures to keep them out or by partnering with a pest professional
to help effectively and safely remediate infestations, " says
PestWorld.org has a modern layout, easy navigation and vivid
pest photography. New features include a Multimedia Center with
public photo and video galleries.
Despite its new look, PestWorld.org retains many of its popular
features, including the Pest Guide, AllThingsBedBugs microsite, media
gallery, Extreme Infestations case studies, and Zip Code Locator to
help users find pest professionals that are qualified and licensed,
operating in their local communities.
The NPMA, a non-profit organization with more than 7,000

industry's commitment to the protection of public health, food and
property. For more information, follow the NPMA on Twitter at @PestWorld and visit the NPMA's consumer
