ATLANTA - Larry Eichler, former president and longtime board member of UPFDA, recently hosted a dinner and reception at his golf club in honor of Valera Jessee, who retired after 31 years of service as executive director of the trade association.
Jesse had previously been recognized at the UPFDA Spring Conference earlier this year, but Eichler wanted to do something personally for his longtime friend and colleague in the Atlanta area, where they both reside.
Among those in attendance were Lon Records, Pat Callahan, Jessee, Larry Eichler, Calvin Stephenson Jr., Mohamed Rachadi and Steve Levy.
Termites are known for their voracious wood-based diets, but what happens when they encounter common items like shoes and bath towels? PPMA’s newest video project, “Will They Eat It?” will reveal just how destructive termites really are and show homeowners that these pests are capable of chewing through much more than just wood. The 6-part series premieres on Monday, July 8 on the PestWorld Facebook and YouTube pages, as well as the “Will They Eat It?” hub.
The phrase “you are what you eat” certainly rings true when it comes to termites. After chewing through dyed cotton wash cloths, the termites turned blue and red, absorbing the color of the dye they consumed.
