PCT is a trusted resource for news and technology in the Pest Control Industry. They've recently published their newest addition to the Service Technician Manuals series titled “The Service Technician’s Application and Equipment Manual” by William H Robinson.
The main purpose of this manual is to provide an overview on insecticides and proper application methods, and a review of how to properly handle your equipment. The manual also provices illustrated instructions on use and maintenance of the equipment for the greatest possible efficacy. The book is divided in two sections, the first is a review of application methods for liquids, gels, dusts, granules and foam. The second section is a review of pest control equipment.
So why should this manual make it to the top of your "To Read" pile? Well, here are some of our favorite reasons:
