MISSOULA, Mont. — Nate Nunnally, CEO of Custom Pest Control, Missoula, Mont., was announced as the winner of a copy of the new PCT Guide to Commercial Pest Management. Nunnally’s name was randomly drawn by PCT from a pool of those entered into a recent online giveaway promotion.

Custom Pest Control’s business is roughly 70% residential and 30% commercial, but Nunnally said he wants to expand the commercial business, which is why he was interested in the book. The new resource, written by current and past members of the Copesan Technical Committee, focuses on a specific type of account – from apartments to food processing and hotels to zoos – providing a quick reference for technicians beginning work at a new commercial client location, a training review of what is important in specific commercial accounts, and a guide for all those involved in commercial pest management.

“We want to have the best professionals we can and we view this book as a huge resource in helping us,” Nunnally said. “All of our technicians will read it.”

Custom Pest Control was founded in 1987 by Dave and Karen Terry, friends of Nunnally. Dave Terry passed away in 2010 and Nunnally, a former fireman, came on board to help out his friends. Today, he serves as CEO and Karen Terry is CFO. The company employs 5 to 6 workers and serves all of western Montana.


“We have quite a few hobo spiders in Montana. The are big, ugly and strike fear into people, and we get calls from all over the state about hobo spiders,” said Nunnally, who add that Custom Pest Control has a separate division for vertebrate pests, that includes birds, bats and rodents (e.g., pocket gophers).
