Posted by Keith Ruebeling On January 6th

Keith Ruebeling - President Florida Pest Management AssociationAs the Florida Pest Management Association embarks on their 70th Anniversary, I’m truly honored to serve this year as the organization’s 68th President.

I just want to start by thanking 2014 President Billy Riley for his outstanding leadership and dedication to serving our membership over this past year. The theme for his term…

Member Driven. Industry Focused

epitomized what the FPMA strives to accomplish.

We’re an association in existence to serve our members with a constant dedication to preserving and protecting the pest control industry. It’s so impactful in my opinion that I plan to continue using it as part of our ongoing message.

This year’s objectives will continue to be about strengthening our advocacy efforts, providing quality educational opportunities to our members and bringing our industry partners and operators together to network and fellowship.

We look forward to seeing each of our fellow pest control professionals at the upcoming FPMA Pest & Lawn Care Expo which in 2015 will feature the PestPac User Conference. We are excited about this partnership with Marathon Data Systems that will provide one incredible event for pest management professionals. If you have not yet registered please do so now!

Back by popular demand….. FPMA in Paradise is headed back to the Florida Keys! Our destination, The Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, is sure to be a hit among our attendees and their families. Fill out that vacation request form TODAY- June 22-25…do NOT miss this one!

Most importantly, we must work to define and improve the overall value that this great association can provide to all levels of memberships. I’m excited about the future of FPMA and our industry and I’m thankful for the opportunity to serve as its President.

The Truth About Palmetto Bugs in Southwest Florida

Posted by Keith Ruebeling On June 27th

I’ve heard a lot of people say that they don’t have cockroaches, they’re just “palmetto bugs”. But are they really?

Florida Woods Cockroach aka Palmetto Bug

Since it’s officially summer and calls regarding roach control are on the rise, I thought I might shed some light on our friend the palmetto bug.

The palmetto bug is also known as the Florida woods cockroach and the truth is, you aren’t very likely to see one in your home. They are what Floridians find in their saw-palmetto fan palms and cabbage palms.

Old timers originally called the Eurycotis Floridana “palmetto bugs” when they were cutting and collecting heart of palm for food. The most identifying characteristic of the true palmetto bug is the foul smell it emits when disturbed. So, If it moves slowly and stinks when you squash it, then you might have actually seen a palmetto bug. Otherwise, we’re sorry to tell you, it’s probably a bacteria carrying, virus spreading cockroach!

Now that we have that straightened out, here are the 4 most common types of roaches you WILL find in Florida homes: Read the rest of this entry »

Commercial Pest Control - LeeSar Building and People

Let’s pretend you’re a doctor who is in the middle of an examination with your patient, when suddenly a roach scurries across the floor and disappears into a crack in the baseboard. Your patient looks at you with a disgusted face and you are absolutely mortified. Do you trust this patient to NOT tell all of her friends and possibly the entire Internet community with a negative review of your business?
