PAMPLONA, Spain — Residex’s Rick Allen and Gary Marcucci recently crossed a biggie of their “bucket list” – the duo participated in the annual “Running of the Bulls” in Pamplona, Spain.

Allen, Marcucci, along with several friends and family members, were on hand for the event and were clad in Residex-themed clothing.

“The Residex ‘X’ can be seen on shirts.  You see, pest control is everywhere!” said Allen.

The annual bull run is part of Spain's San Fermin festival, which dates back to the late 16th century. The nine-day event honors Pamplona's patron saint, San Fermin.
