CLARK NEEDS YOU...TO COME OUT AND HELP THE HOSPITALS IN HAITI

  
  

 Clark Pest Control holds free “Photo Booth Fundraiser”

during Best in the West Rib Cook-Off

 

LODI, Calif. (August 18, 2010) – Clark Pest Control is returning to the Best in the West Rib Cook-Off, but this year, they are asking area residents to help them raise awareness and money for an important cause – the hospitals in Haiti that were devastated by the earthquake and are now suffering from uncontrolled pest infestations. 

 

By simply showing up and taking your picture in the free “Photo Booth Fundraiser,” you can help raise money for these medical facilities in Haiti.  A professional photo booth – the kind where you walk in, pose and take away the fun photo strip – will be set up at the event.   For every person that takes their picture in the booth between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 4th and Sunday, September 5th, Clark Pest Control will donate $5 to the Pest Management Pledge campaign.

 

The free Photo Booth Fundraiser will be at the Clark Pest Control Booth at Victorian Square (near the Kid’s Area) in Sparks, Nevada throughout the Best in the West Rib Cook-Off. 

 

Earlier this year, the Haitian government called upon the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and a select group of industry executives – including Terry Clark, vice president of Clark Pest Control – to assist the country in dealing with pest and rodent control problems caused by the January 12th earthquake.  While the country is still dealing with widespread damage to its infrastructure and health and safety issues for its people, there are other major concerns that are not often discussed – like bugs.  And yet, these issues are very severe, especially in the hospitals in Port au Prince. 

 

The pest control industry – including Clark Pest Control – has made a pledge to raise money for maintenance to these medical facilities, the purchase of products to prevent pest infestations, training of Haitian workers, and a campaign to educate Haitians on how to minimize the threats of pests and the diseases they carry.  The conditions in the hospitals are deplorable and we need your help to make it better.   (More details about this campaign and Clark Pest Control’s involvement in the campaign are available upon request or at http://www.npmapestworld.org/Haiti.htm.)

 

In addition to the Photo Booth Fundraiser, Clark Pest Control’s mascot Timmy the Termite will be wandering around the event to interact with consumers and give away bug candy, and the company will also be giving away other prizes throughout the weekend.

2012 Bed Bug Conference Rohnert Park

DON’T LET THE BED BUGS BITE

YOUR BOTTOM LINE!

Managers Can Register Now for FREE Bed Bug Educational Training Hosted by Clark Pest Control

 

LODI, Calif. (January 11, 2012) – It’s no secret that bed bugs are still everywhere – in apartments, houses and hotels, college dormitories, hospitals, offices, retail stores, public transportation, laundromats and even movie theaters.  And since a majority of industry professionals consider bed bugs to be THE most difficult pest to treat (NPMA, 2010), Clark Pest Control is coming to Rohnert Park to help educate these facility managers with a free one-day seminar called “Bed Bugs: Know The Truth.”

 

The “Bed Bugs: Know The Truth” event in Rohnert Park will be held on Wednesday, February 1st from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Doubletree Rohnert Park (One Doubletree Dr., Rohnert Park).  Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Only 100 spots are available for anyone who manages a facility or property where bed bugs could be a problem in and around the following areas -- Santa Rosa, Vacaville, Napa/Sonoma, Fairfield, San Rafael, Bodega Bay, Vallejo, Novato, Petaluma and Davis.

 

“Our goal is to educate the people in charge of facilities that most commonly get infestations so they are prepared to make smart and timely decisions if and when they are faced with having to identify and fight bed bugs,” said Robert Baker, operations manager, Clark Pest Control.

 

The event will provide guests answers to many common myths about bed bugs, such as whether or not they transmit diseases and are a sign of poor sanitation, and if you can see them with the naked eye.  Experts will also educate guests on the newest ways to detect and control bed bugs, as well as how a bed bug infestation can affect a business’ bottom line.  Speakers include Jim Fredricks from the National Pest Management Association, Gail Getty from the UC Extension, and Jeff Lipman of the Lipman Law Firm that deals with bed bug litigation and other industry experts. 

 

Anyone interested in registering for the Rohnert Park “Bed Bugs: Know The Truth” event may call 877-918-9988 or email salesteam@clarkpest.com.

 

The “Bed Bugs: Know The Truth” events will also be held in San Mateo on February 2nd and in San Diego on February 3rd
