T Cockroaches: New Research on an Old Pest
Presented by Allison Allen
Cockroaches trigger asthma attacks, contaminate food, and are never welcome in your accounts. PMPs need to have a zero-tolerance policy for cockroaches. Complete control is difficult to achieve when the client doesn’t feel the same way. In this talk you will get to know the cockroaches that are most likely to infest your accounts and learn how to make an effective battle plan; including what to do when the customer isn’t doing their part.?
