Pest control is deemed as an essential service in Michigan, but we if we can't obtain, renew, or test for commercial pesticide applicator certification, then we can't provide our essential services amid COVID-19!

Other states are making accommodations for obtaining and renewing pesticide applicator certifications during COVID-19. Unfortunately, Michigan is dragging its feet, and we won't tolerate this lack of action!  

Join your fellow MPMA members and tell your Michigan lawmakers and Governor Whitmer to temporarily MODIFY the certification process in Michigan, so commercial applicators can obtain their certification amid COVID-19! Pest control and commercial applicator certification are BOTH ESSENTIAL!

After you participate, please forward this email to industry friends and co-workers! WE NEED EVERY MPMA MEMBER TO TAKE ACTION!!!!!!!

Why Pest Management Sites Need to Have a Privacy Policy

If you’re in the pest management industry, you serve to protect the public’s health in a variety of ways: you protect businesses from liability by maintaining clean and safe office environments; you help shield the most vulnerable amongst us from the health risks posed by infestations, and you play a key role in preserving the public’s well-being by providing them peace of mind. 

While compliance was probably not one of the functions you had in mind when you started your pest management business, it is nevertheless a critical function for your business to be aware of at all times. For your pest management website, privacy compliance directly applies to your business. That is because privacy laws in the United States may require your website to contain a Privacy Policy. Failing to comply with privacy laws pose a direct threat to your business: noncompliance could potentially result in significant fines and lawsuits that threaten your bottom line.
