Terminix Mishandles Toxic Chemicals Again in the Virgin Islands
After the sad case of a family being poisoned by Terminix chemicals while on vacation in the Virgin Islands, new evidence has been discovered that Terminix used the same dangerous Methyl Bromide, or “Meth-O-Gas” in St. Croix.
Fumigation was improperly performed at the villa located below one that was rented by Theresa Devine and Steve Esmond. They and their two sons became gravely ill from exposure to the pesticide, it caused them to have to be hospitalized.
It was revealed that Terminix did not follow guidelines set by the EPA for handling Methyl Bromide and used other chemicals that were not approved for use in residential buildings.
Unfortunately, use of the chemical was found to be widespread throughout the Virgin Islands. All cans of Methyl Bromide have since been collected and destroyed.
It had been exported from Puerto Rico where it was also found to have been misused. The EPA has been closely monitoring the situation in both countries.

Former employees and other victims are encouraged to step forward and help expose any facts relating to Terminix operations that result in damage that devastates families and individuals.
