March 8 (Fairfax, VA)- PestWorld.org, an educational website designed to inform homeowners about common household pests, has undergone a complete redesign, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) announced today. The consumer website is designed to give visitors a more interactive and engaging experience, as well as serve as a one-stop resource for all pest-related topics.
The new site will feature articles and content from an array of expert sources from both the NPMA, including Vice President of Public Affairs Missy Henriksen with her blog, “The Bug Lady,” and outside industry sources, such as Realtors, home inspectors and meteorologists. A medical expert will also routinely contribute content on pest-related health issues, including salmonella, Lyme disease, West Nile virus, hantavirus, and asthma and allergies.
“PestWorld.org is designed to provide users with a complete view of pests and the health and property risks they pose,” says Henriksen. “We want to ensure that our visitors are able to find all of the information they need about their pest problems. Visitors can browse through expert-authored articles, photo and video libraries, pest guides, prevention tips and health articles to give them a full understanding of pests and the dangerous implications they can have on our homes and families.”
Education remains a priority. “We want our visitors to leave feeling empowered to tackle pests, either by taking preventative measures to keep them out or by partnering with a pest professional to help effectively and safely remediate infestations, ” says Henriksen.
PestWorld.org has a modern layout, easy navigation and vivid pest photography. New features include a Multimedia Center with public photo and video galleries.
Despite its new look, PestWorld.org retains many of its popular features, including the Pest Guide, AllThingsBedBugs microsite, media gallery, Extreme Infestations case studies, and Zip Code Locator to help users find pest professionals that are qualified and licensed, operating in their local communities.
The NPMA, a non-profit organization with more than 7,000 members, was established in 1933 to support the pest management industry’s commitment to the protection of public health, food and property.

Hulett Celebrates Another Year of Growth
Hulett Environmental Services celebrated another significant year of growth at its annual sales awards ceremony in February.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Hulett Environmental Services celebrated another significant year of growth at its annual sales awards ceremony in February.
“Growing like this is so much fun and having the ability to share it with all these great people that brought it to us makes it all the better,” said Tim Hulett, owner and CEO of Hulett Environmental Services. “We have quickly climbed into the top 20 pest control companies in the country and we have no intention of stopping here.”
Brian Holloway, NFL Pro Bowler from the New England Patriots, was the guest speaker and roused the group with a message celebrating the fun of winning. “Winning is something that’s in your heart. It’s a decision you make every day. It’s clear that the Hulett team has that heart and makes that winning decision daily.”
This year’s ceremony was special to the Hulett family due to the passing of Guy Hulett, the first-generation and founder of Hulett Environmental Services. The family was given the Terry Chapin Award in honor of his contributions throughout the years, a fixture at Hulett’s corporate headquarters in West Palm Beach for decades.
“He will by greatly missed and always remembered,” said his grandson, Randy Hulett, the third generation leader at Hulett.

In addition to the robust recurring sales bonuses paid monthly at Hulett, more than $50,000 were handed out at Saturday’s award ceremony. “It’s a pleasure for me to pay out these bonuses,” said Tim Hulett. “These people are the ones that brought us here, and they more than deserve to share in the benefits of our growth. These are the people that are going to continue this great growth run we are on. We have just found our stride and it’s nowhere but up from here.”
