I will help anyone in the world with their pest problems.  I will give you information on how to control pests without using any toxic pesticides.  There is no reason to endanger your family, your pets, your employees and customers if you are a business or expose anyone to toxic pesticides.  If you have any pests you need to have identified, you can send me some and I will identify them for you. There are non-toxic methods of controlling termites also. I will help you make your home or business pest proof if you describe it to me. I have several handbooks I can send you (via email) that are relevant to your pest situation.  My fee depends on if you are a homeowner or a business.  For most homeowners the fee would be $25 and that is a one-time fee. I will help you with any pest problems in the future with no additional fees.  The business fees are variable, depending on the size and scope of the business.  I will also help any government organization on any level develop non-toxic pest management plans for your government property. If you have any questions, you can contact me, and we can discuss your pest situation.

I have over 40 years of experience in the pest industry business and I know the hazards of toxic pesticides.  Pesticides are almost never necessary for pest management. I was the IPM Specialist for the University of New Mexico for about a dozen years and never used any toxic pesticides on campus and the students, faculty and staff loved it.  I was also the IPM Manager for the City of Santa Fe and personally took care of over 80 buildings and never used a drop of liquid pesticides.   I have written three books and have written newspaper columns for over 20 years on non-toxic pest management.  Let’s reduce, and hopefully eliminate the use of toxic pesticides in society.


About askthebugman

I have been in the pest management industry for over 40 years. In that time I have used almost every pesticide available to control so-called “pests”. With this experience, I have learned over the years that the pesticides we use are far more dangerous than the pests we are trying to control. As a result, it has become a passion for me to improve the quality of life for humans and the planet, by assisting people to not only become more educated and aware of their environment – but also by learning to manage their home and business with a sustainable and healthier approach to tending to unwanted infestations of bugs. Please enjoy my blog posts, check out my publications, utilize my services, or simply stay in touch if you have a bug question…
