FREE Resources to Help Work From Home Parents!

Due to social distancing to slow the curve of the COVID-19 outbreak many parents have suddenly found themselves working from home with kids by their side.  Schools have been cancelled for at least a short time, but possibly for months.  Many are adjusting to a new work from home gig.  At the same time they are scrambling to come up with a short term education plan for their kids.  Luckily Pest World for Kids is creating free resources to help work from home parents with this very issue.

Working from home with a child by your side can be challenging.  There are still deadlines to meet, but the added distractions make it difficult to focus.  Finding small activities for kids to work on by themselves is key for you to get something done on your to do list!  At this same time, you want to be grateful for the extra time you have been given to spend with them.  Pest World for Kids is helping provide FREE resources to help work from home parents with both!

Pest World for Kids has lesson plans ready for parents complete with FREE downloads, activities and games, as well as suggested age appropriate books.  They provide a variety of things to do with your kids, but also things they can do on their own.  They even went as far to give you the Correlations with National Standards for those who need it!

 

Coronavirus: Message to our Customers

Coronavirus:

Message to our Customers

During this uncertain time, our customers’ health and well being is our highest priority. As we continue monitoring developments related to Coronavirus (COVID-19), rest assured, we are committed to doing everything we can to ensure our customers and employees are safe. Our service is essential in preserving the health of our customers and protecting property. As such, we are going to modify our normal service by attempting to mitigate any pest issues from the outside of the home. This means that we will do our best, through the steps mentioned below, to reduce/eliminate inside services over the next few weeks.

  • Suspending all interior services/treatments unless absolutely necessary.  To protect your property, food and health we will continue interior services for ants, bed bugs, roaches, stinging insects, mice & rats.  All other interior pest issues will be addressed on a case by case basis.
  • Conducting additional customer screening for any absolutely necessary interior services
  • Ensuring our team keeps a proper distance (6ft or more), wears disposable gloves and masks if entering your home, and continues regular hand washing.

As a note, we are running on normal business hours at this time. Should you have concerns regarding our services, we’re here to support you and offer flexibility to reschedule at your convenience. We encourage you to contact us at 816-279-2000 if you have questions or do wish to reschedule.​

As the seriousness of this virus increases, all of our employees have been instructed to follow the CDC’s best practices, including frequent hand washing, limiting proximity to sick individuals, and being aware of symptoms. While this has not been an issue for Preferred Pest Control yet, we will also implement 14-day quarantines for any employees who are diagnosed with COVID-19. We encourage you to do the same, so please review the most up-to-date information here.

Finally, our hearts go out to all those affected by Coronavirus. Please check back for regular updates from us as we navigate this evolving situation, and thank you for being a part of our Preferred Pest Control family.
