Local pest control company employee becomes an Associate Certified Entomologist

Aaron Veal, Associate Certified Entomologist

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Russell’s Pest Control announced that its Lead Technician, Aaron Veal, has passed the Entomological Society of America certification program and become an Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE).

ACE is a certification program run by the Entomological Society of America Certification Corporation (ESACC), which seeks to raise the ever-increasing level of professionalism in the pest control industry by developing standards for applicators. Applicants for certification must meet minimum standards, be certified operators in at least one state and pass an examination.

“We are proud of Aaron for becoming an Associate Certified Entomologist. This is such a valuable way for our company to prove our professional credentials,” said Mark Nadolski, owner of Russell’s Pest Control. “It will lead to better visibility and opportunities for us in the East Tennessee market.”

According to the Entomological Society of America, while there are other certification programs in the industry, no other national pesticide applicator certification programs exist on this level. The ACE program is unique in the industry for the individual operator because it is very focused on the household insects market.

First introduced in 2004, the ACE program has seen an average of 38 percent annual growth every year.
