MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Harold Leyse, co-founder of Adam's Pest Control, retired on June 29, which was also his 74th birthday. Leyse leaves the company after 40 straight years of growth to his son Todd Leyse and daughter Andrea Guy.

Leyse entered the industry in 1963, working for Lystad's. He formed Adam's in 1971 with his long-time friend and business partner Don Hanson, who passed away in 1995.

Leyse has a couple of industry inventions and patented the DoAll, an accessory for the compressed air tank sprayer, but he is more well known for his Pest Jests, a series of cartoon/joke/trivia books for the pest industry. In July, he'll be coming out with a compilation book of all of these cartoons with the addition of humorous and educational stories from his 48 year career.
