On July 23, 2016, Pest Control Technicians Inc. (PCT) of Norristown, Pa., celebrated its 40th anniversary at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University in Philadelphia. The gala event, open to employees and their families, included full access to all exhibits in the Academy, a behind-the-scenes tour of their historical collections and, of course, a tour of the extensive insect collection from around the world conducted by two of the Academy’s research entomologists.
One of the fun highlights of the gala was an insect-eating contest between management and service technicians.
Founder and President Joe Silvestrini and Director of Operations Juliana Shinn planned and hosted the event. Silvestrini was presented with a plaque by the employees honoring his 40-plus years in the pest management industry, and Lucille Silvestrini was presented with a bouquet of flowers.
PCT services commercial and residential clients throughout Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. It’s also a service partner for Copesan Pest Services of Menomonee Falls, Wis.
