CJ’S PEST CONTROL COMPANY UNLICENSED

MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – The Miami man who was found in the cab of a fume-filled pest-control pickup truck along I-95 in Palm Beach County Monday apparently was not legally allowed to do pest control work, according to an investigation by CBSMiami.com.

A search of state records indicates Jorge Barahona, who was found in a truck bearing the name CJ’s Pest Control, may have been having trouble with the pest control business he has run from his Southwest Miami-Dade home since March of 1998.

Barahona was found in a truck identifying his business Monday morning, along with a 10-year-old boy said by police to be a foster child in his care. Fumes in the truck sent the Barahona and the boy to the hospital, along with 4 firefighters. A body was found in the truck later in the day, sparking a major investigation.

Barahona and his wife, Carmen, incorporated CJ’s Pest Exterminators Inc. in March, 1998, and operated the business from their home on SW 47th terrace in Southwest Miami-Dade, according to records on file with the Florida Secretary of State.

Neighbors were aware of the business, and some had good things to say about Barahona and how he managed toxic pest-control chemicals.

“He was always very cautious when he did his stuff,” said neighbor Jim Sheppard. “He sprayed my house, and when he came in and sprayed my house he’d always put on a big respirator and ask me to step out. He’s always really cautious and careful about the chemicals.”

But according to state records, Barahona should not have been applying pest control chemicals in any home but his own.

The Florida Department of Agriculture database of licensed pest control operators shows that while Barahona is a certified operator in good standing for general home pest control, a state ID card he was required to carry to do business in people’s homes expired in August of 2009, and had not been renewed. Without it, “It’s not legal for him go go out and perform pest control,” said a clerk in the Agriculture department’s department of Entomology and Pest Control.

Michael Page, Chief of the Bureau of Entomology and Pest Control, told CBSMiami.com that Barahona’s company’s license expired November 15th, 2009

There are other apparent lapses in Barahona’s business. In March, 2010, he failed to file a required annual report for CJ’s Pest Exterminators Inc. with the Secretary of State. According to state records, his corporation was dissolved 6 months later, in September 2010.

There is no record Barahona attempted to have the corporation reinstated, which would have required paying a $400 late filing penalty. Instead, in order to have the legal status to maintain a business bank account, Barahona filed a “Fictitious Name” request with the state, paying a $50 fee to use the name CJ’s Pest Control, which was the name on the pickup truck along I-95 Monday.

The state approved that request February 8th, 6 days before Barahona was found inside his truck, with a body in the back.

In Miami-Dade County, the law requires all businesses, including those operating from a home, to obtain a tax receipt. County records show there is no such certificate for Barahona’s address or any of the businesses located there. In addition, some businesses require a certificate of use depending on the type of business and where they operate.

Hilda Castillo, a spokesperson for Miami-Dade Building and Zoning, confirmed Tuesday afternoon that the county has no certificate of use on file for Barahona’s address.

FLYING MIAMI PEST CONTROL VEHICLES?

The world’s first flying car (maybe pest control truck?) has come closer to lift-off after being granted road safety exemptions that will allow it to be used both on the road and in the air. Imagine the Pest Control in Miami that could be offered if this possibility became a reality.

The Transition Roadable Aircraft, likely to cost £160,000, can fold its wings away to drive on the road.

Its makers have been given permission to use special tires that will not weigh the aircraft when it is in flight.

Instead of heavy glass windows, it will have panes made from a polycarbonate material that is lighter and less likely to shatter.

The exceptions granted by the American National Highway Traffic Safety Administration last week mean the car-plane — which echoes famous flying car Chitty Chitty Bang Bang — has come within reach of going on sale for the first time.

With a wing span of 27.5ft and an airborne range of 460 miles, owners could soar into the skies and cruise at 115mph if traffic gets too much.The 19ft-long device takes unleaded fuel and can be parked in a garage. But prospective buyers must have a flying licence — and the car will only start if a special code is used.

Manufacturer Terrafugia, based in Woburn, Massachusetts, said it should come on the market at the end of next year.

A local pest control company in the kendall area of Miami, New Era Pest Control, is waiting for these to be released and would like to use them for its local based routes, in order to better serve its customers.

PEST CONTROL IN MIAMI EXCEEDS SUMMER EXPECTATIONS!

Is Pest Control In Miami really necessary? As we all know in the Miami area, summer heat and humidity bring many insects into our homes and yards. Summer brings the ideal living and breeding conditions for roaches, ants, spiders and many other florida pests.

During this time Miami Pest Control is simply big business! Pest control related calls begin to pour in and dispatching technicians to these needy customers becomes an art. Many customers report that they placed an average of 5 calls for pest control  service and maybe 1 would call back. This is directly attributed to the volume of calls or demand for these services during this time.

Unfortunately, many smaller pest control companies are running full staff to meet the need but are still unable to service all of the calls received and being able to service their regular Monthly, Bi-Monthly, and Quarterly service customers becomes very difficult.

We have experienced this Pest Control frenzy and are working very hard to get all of our regular service customers back on schedule. We would like to apologize if any of our customers have experienced a slowdown in service, and promise to quickly resolve any scheduling issues.

We would like to thank all of our customers for their patience and patronage. Our commitment to our customers remains strong, and our dedication will get us through these times.
