DECATUR, Ala.  — The team at Cook’s Pest Control recently protected its 100,000th structure with the Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System. The Decatur, Ala.,-based company is one of the first Authorized Operators of the Sentricon System to reach this milestone.

“We’ve worked hard to promote the Sentricon System and are grateful for the 100,000 customers who trust us to protect their homes with this exceptional product,” says Joey Harris, chief operating officer for Cook’s Pest Control. “Based on linear footage, Cook’s protects approximately 4,500 miles of property — that’s the distance between Atlanta and Honolulu. The Sentricon System provides peace of mind for our company, as well as for our customers. We look forward to sharing the benefits of termite baiting and the Sentricon System with many more customers in the future.”

Jim Rice, senior sales specialist for Dow AgroSciences, recently recognized the achievement during Cook’s Pest Control’s 2009 Manager’s Meeting in Sandestin, Fla. Rice presented a plaque honoring the accomplishment to Harris, along with Jim Aycock, president and CEO of Cook’s Pest Control.

“Cook’s Pest Control is an extraordinary partner, and we appreciate that partnership,” says Dave Morris, commercial leader for the Dow AgroSciences U.S. Urban Pest Management business. “And we recognize that ongoing improvements to our product portfolio make our relationship with companies like Cook’s possible.”
