An Alabama pest control company, which does business in northwest Florida, 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.”
Bronson is taking legal action against the company seeking a 30-thousand dollar fine. As of now there are no reports of any health problems caused by the company’s pesticides.
