National Pest Management Month

National Pest Management Month


Each year the pest management industry designates April as National Pest Management month.  For more than 30 years, the professional pest control industry has been honored for playing a key role in protecting both health and property from significant pest-borne threats. 

While the pest management industry is something our co-workers live and breathe on a daily basis, we know that most consumers only think about it when they have a problem.  Schendel is proud to be the company that 12,000 homeowners called when they had a problem with ants or termites.  We’re proud that over 100 hospitals, treating more than 2.1 million patients each year, chose Schendel to protect their facilities.  And we are privileged to protect the schools where over 205,000 children learn each day.

The pest management industry is continually evolving.  As a leader in our markets, we are dedicated to offering the most current, most effective treatments available.  Our heat treatment program for bed bugs is a good example.  We feel this is the best, most economical and most environmentally-friendly way to kill bed bugs.  Once we determined this, we made the commitment to offer this treatment option to our customers.  We’ve even taken it a step further with Patches, our bed bug dog detective.  Patches is 97% accurate in detecting the odor of live bed bugs or their eggs.  Even the most highly-trained technician can’t begin to match her accuracy.  Having Patches on the Schendel team gives us another way to protect your health and property.

So as we celebrate National Pest Management month, I’d like to thank you for allowing us to serve you, and share our knowledge and expertise with you.  If you are not a current customer but are looking for a service provider, please give us a call to find out how Schendel can help you.
