Clark Pest Control Awarded for Innovation

News Coverage

| March 16, 2010

LODI, Calif. - Clark Pest Control, Lodi, Calif., is receiving the Integrated Pest Management Innovator Award from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation. This award is given to organizations that develop and promote methods of pest control that reduce the risks associated with using traditional chemical pesticides. 

"IPM Innovators are role models for change from traditional pest control to strategies that reduce or eliminate toxic pesticides," said DPR Director Mary-Ann Warmerdam. "One of our missions is to encourage through recognition the use of pest control methods that are more protective of public health and the environment. We especially applaud Clark Pest Control for its efforts to find a replacement for pyrethroid pesticides for residential pest control."

Clark Pest Control has always strived to be on the cutting edge of the industry and is dependent on non-chemical treatments in its pest management. The company currently has a large-scale IPM program in which each of its technicians performs a site evaluation and a customized service plan, which reduces the overall use of pesticides. Clark expects to have the entire company performing this service within three years. 

In addition, Clark helped to develop GreenPro, a national certification program for the pest management industry, and was one of the first companies in California and nationwide to become certified.  In fact, Clark Pest Control has more GreenPro certified technicians than any other pest management company in the country.  

For these and many other reasons, Clark Pest Control is one of eight organizations receiving DPR’s IPM Innovator Award this year.
