New content addresses key questions involving pest control...

Renowned presenter and actor James Earl Jones will host an informative episode of "In America" that focuses on pest control. The upcoming program examines changing trends in this industry and tells viewers about the latest extermination strategies. It also looks at the types of pests that infest the greatest numbers of buildings.

Industry revenue has increased in recent years as bedbugs continue to proliferate and new invasive ants enter the country. Meanwhile, stink bugs have damaged crops and invaded structures in additional regions. Hurricane Sandy also boosted rodent activity on the East Coast, according to AgroNews.

Two pests that have recently expanded into new areas are the roof rat and bedbug. Although they were primarily coastal rodents in the past, roof rats have moved inland. Bedbugs are infesting new locations such as theaters, hospitals, warehouses and buses, according to PCT Magazine.

Many Americans believe that changing weather conditions and increasing globalization have made pest problems worse. This has created a debate between people who desire stronger pesticides and those who want to protect the environment. The federal government recently urged exterminators to cut back their use of pyrethroid sprays.

"In America" will explain these and other pest-related issues that affect homes and businesses across the country. The producers of this educational TV show independently research, develop and distribute each episode. It is not affiliated with PBS. For more info, visit
