I am writing this to alert Gov. Susana Martinez to pesticide issues.

One is about how we in New Mexico issue pesticide licenses and then do not provide pest management professionals with the proper classes to get their continuing education units. We have multiple categories of pest control licenses these professionals need to do pest control. Categories for structural pests, wood destroying pests, lawn and ornamental pests, forest pests, rodents, weeds and a number of others. Pest control professionals are required to get four continuing education units a year in any category to be automatically re-certified in every category, with the exception of termites.

    Ya, it’s true that pest control services of Mexico are not professional. Recently I was reading an article regarding best control service in US and came to know that Pinnacle pest control is the top pest control service there. Pinnacle has an experience of over 20 year and there expert use proper equipments to deal with pest, rat, ant and termite control. For more look at their web-site. [smile]
