Whisitling past the cemetery; episode 6



To close out the year, the guys cover two posts from the Pest Cemetery Facebook Group.

The first originated from Bob Keith. To fully understand his post you must know that our industry is of a friendly culture. We speak to our competitors. We wave to fellow PCOs in passing; however, Bob mentioned how technicians employed by larger companies often fail to return the friendly gesture.  Both Bryan and Jerry have had similar encounters.

Jerry wrote an article about the “Professional Pavlovian Wave”. You can find it here.

The second thread highlighted came from Trey Howard. Trey questioned the growing number of professionals throwing around the term “baseboard jockey”.

Does taking a B&G inside your accounts make you a baseboard jockey?

What exactly is “IPM” and can industry professionals uniformly agree on its definition?
