'WE HANDLE PESTS':
Exterminator Battles Bugs
} :By BARTON HUTHWAITE
Battling bugs is Robert
f. Opal's business.
ADVER IT ING
BUG BATTLER-Robert Opal, pest exterminator, sits at his
desk in a moment of rest before going out again on another call.
Opal, a registered member of
the National Pest Control Asso-
ciation, holds the official title of
pest control operator. He is more
commonly called an exterminator.
Exterminator Opal's base of op-
erations for his never-ending bat-
tle against household pests is a
one room shop on Maynard
Street. Strange bottles, machines
and cans clutter the small room.
Some of the larger containers
bear such scientific names as Sul-
foxide Pyrexcel 20, Emulsifiable
Chlordane and Turdocide M-50.
Others simply read "Danger! Rat
An ancient desk, its shelves
jammed with volumes of the
"Journal of Economic Entomol-
ogy" and "Rogues' Gallery of Im-
ported Pests," rests in one corner.
Above the desk hangs a certifi-
cate stating, "the aforementioned
has attended ten annual Purdue
Pest Control Operators' Confer-
"We handle all sorts of pests,"
Opal said, leaning back in his
chair. "Cockroaches, bedbugs,
fleas and moths; we handle them
all. We also rid homes of such
nuisances as rats, mice and squir-
Exterminators Have Bible
Picking up a pamphleV entitled
Pest Control Operator's Guide,
Opal continued, "This is the
Bible of the business. It tells
what the servicemen should do,
act, and look like.
"The pesthcontrol operator's
method of handling a case is
somewhat like a doctor's," Opal
explained. "The doctor examines
the patient, diagnoses the case,
prescribes a cure and administers
"A good exterminator follows
this same general pattern. He in-,
spects the premises, identifies the
pest, recommends the cure and
proceeds with the treatment.
These are the basic steps of pest
control," Opal said.
Exterminators who belong to
the KPCA are expected to attend
several conferences each year on
pest control. "Last year, I wentI
to meetings at Purdue Univer-
sity, Michigan State University
and also one here at the Univer-
sity," Opal said.
"Ann Arbor has the same com-
mon pests that are found any-
where else in the Midwest," Opal
smiled. The equipment used to
combat them is not very complex.
"The specialization is not in the
equipment, but in the materials
that we use," the exterminator
"The most common insects are
fleas, bedbugs, cockroaches and
moths," Opal said thoughtfully
scratching his head. Others, such
as rats and squirrels, are less
Opal explained that he would
have to leave. "I've got another
job to do," he said. He picked up
his chemicals and sprayer and left
to continue his battle against the
