Arthropodcast - A Pest Control Podcast for Industry Professionals. We Cover Pest Control News, Pest Control Topics, Pest Control Products
Arthropodcast is a weekly pest control podcast that promotes professionalism and industry expertise to business owners, pest control operators, sales reps, and inspectors.

I hope everyone’s holiday season is going well. For me, things have been a bit hectic, not in a bad way, but I’ve found it extremely difficult to set aside the hours needed to put together a podcast episode worth publishing. Because of this, I’ve decided to re-broadcast the first Arthropodcast episode Bryan and I produced as co-hosts. I hope you enjoy.
