Smithtown NY, Suburban Exterminating's, GREEN Pest control Program was recently recognized with the International IPM (Integrated Pest Management) Excellence Award. This honor was presented on March 24th at the 2009 International IPM Symposium in Portland, Oregon. The recognition was awarded on behalf of the IPM Institute of North America for Suburban Exterminating's leadership in environmental stewardship.

The IPM Excellence Award has merit because of the commitment of the IPM institute in certifying companies and maintaining such high standards. This gave the certification real meaning and separates the truly dedicated companies and those making hollow claims.

Suburban Exterminating's program is nationally certified as "Green Shield" by the IPM Institute of North America and they were one of the first companies in New York to achieve this status. Additionally, Suburban Exterminating's Technical Director, Mr. Lynn Frank BCE was a speaker at the event discussing new Green treatments for bedbugs that Suburban has been instrumental in developing. This groundbreaking approach has been successful in New York, a state with one of the largest populations of bedbugs in the country.

In an interview immediately following the awards ceremony Mr. Frank stated:
"The IPM Excellence Award has merit because of the commitment of the IPM institute in certifying companies and maintaining such high standards. This gave the certification real meaning and separates the truly dedicated companies and those making hollow claims."
"By maintaining their impartiality and standards the general public and the industry as a whole has a verifiable resource to separate companies with a real Green philosophy and program and those who merely make claims".

Long Island, New York is one of the most competitive areas in the country for any business and for almost 50 years Suburban has been one of the top pest control firms. Instituting our Green program was a massive undertaking but one we felt owed to our customers and our environment. This award is confirmation we are on the right path by offering services that are nationally recognized and locally provided.
