November 2, 2022

Pest Management Professional (PMP) held its 24th Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Boston, Mass., on Oct. 10, the day before the National Pest Management Association opened the exhibit hall doors to PestWorld 2022.

PMP honored Richard Deering, founder of ServicePro; Steve Levy, CEO of Bell Labs; Jay Nixon, BCE, semi-retired executive of American Pest, an Anticimex company; and Ted Oser, this year’s posthumous inductee, at the Republic Ballroom in the Sheraton Boston Hotel. Their plaques will be added to the walls of Purdue University’s Smith Hall, joining PMP Hall of Fame inductees who came before them.

Thank you to our Plaque Sponsor Bug Off Pest Control Center, Cocktail Sponsor J.T. Eaton, and Gold Sponsors Control Solutions Inc., FieldRoutes, Pelgar and Rockwell Labs.
