Las Vegas, Nev. — The seventh time was the charm for HonorGuard Pest Management’s Craig Brooks.

At the recent NPMA PestWorld conference and tradeshow, the 15-year pest management industry veteran won $15,000 from Protect-A-Bed, a supplier of mattress protectors, mattress covers and mattress pads. The firm’s products protect mattresses and pillows against dust mite and bed bug infestations.

Protect-A-Bed held a raffle the last day of NPMA’s PestWorld, Oct. 28, to give away either $15,000 in cash or a Volkswagen beetle vehicle (valued at $19,000). Brooks chose the money.

Pest management professionals entered their names to win the raffle throughout the tradeshow and had to be present to win. Protect-A-Bed’s James Bell selected six names before Brooks’ name was called. But since the potential winners weren’t in attendance, or were not U.S. citizens, they were ineligible. Bell said he was “very pleased” to get a winner.

Brooks, who has worked for HonorGuard for five years, said his favorite part about the pest management industry is working with people. HonorGuard, headquartered in Brentwood, Tenn., has 35 employees and three branch offices.

This is the second time Brooks has been a big winner at NPMA PestWorld. A few years ago he won a boat from Forshaw Distribution, he said.
