Dear Chris,

I am writing you to express my sincere appreciation regarding the development of the Associate Certified Entomologist program.

A few years have now passed this valuable program was first launched. As the old adage goes “Better late than never” is so true in this case as I have been meaning to write to you for some time now to express my sincerest gratitude for bringing this program to fruition for our industry.

First of all I believe this certification means a lot to the individuals who have learned Entomology on the go during their tenure in the pest management industry not unlike me. It gives pest management professionals a true and meaningful opportunity to accredit their knowledge that may go otherwise unnoticed to their clients and colleagues. Bravo to you and the E.S.A. for the foresight to recognize the need.

In closing, I want you to know that Wil-Kil Pest Control and Holder’s Pest Solutions have gained great recognition from the clients we serve regarding the number of ACE’s we have on staff. It certainly has raised awareness of the ability of our team members. It also has served to garner greater confidence from our clientele that they have truly partnered with professionals that care about them and their business.
