Unlicensed Pest Control

October 2nd, 2009 by flanews

An Alabama pest control company is being accused of using powerful outdoor pesticides indoors at several Florida nursing homes and health care facilities.

Florida’s Commissioner of Agriculture is ordering the company, Bio-Tech Management, to stop doing business in Florida. The company isn’t licensed to work in the state. Commissioner Charles Bronson says Florida isn’t the only state investigating the company’s business practices.

“I know some of the other states are also looking now at how they are applying their pesticides and if they were using some of the same pesticides indoors that they were suppose to be using outdoors,” said Bronson.

Bronson is taking legal action against the company seeking a 30,000 dollar fine. As of now there are no reports of any health problems caused by the company’s pesticides.
