NCPMA Adopts NPMA Pollinator Best Management Practices
Earlier this year, NPMA published Best Management Practices (BMPs) for Pollinator Protection in Structural Pest Management.  

Although structural pest management services typically result in no exposure to beneficial pollinators the BMPs were developed to provide guidance for NPMA members to minimize incidental effects on honey bees and pollinators around structures. 

To read the Pollinator Best Management Practices, visit here.

Industry facts can be found at www.pollinatorfacts.org or at the NPMA consumer site www.pollinatorhealth.org
