The Pest Posse to host 6th Annual Women in Pest Control


February 28, 2023



The Pest Posse Sixth Annual Women in Pest Control series, with the sponsorship of Nisus Corp. and Target Specialty Products, will start on March 6 starting at 11 a.m. Eastern with a Pest Posse TV live stream on Facebook and LinkedIn.

“This series was conceived by the visionary and creator at The Pest Posse, Culley Christensen,” Foster Brusca said in the news release. “His vision for the series was to recognize the growing presence of women in the pest control industry.”

This series, released annually in March, recognizes four women who work in the pest control industry as service technicians, business owners, manufacturing representatives, and managers. March was chosen for this series to correspond with Women’s History Month, which honors women’s contributions to American history.

Since 1995, each US President has issued an annual proclamation designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.”

“We are so excited about this year’s recognition’s because these four women have a true passion and dedication to the industry,” Brusca said.

In 2023, The Pest Posse Women in Pest Control series will recognize Kendra Schmidt, COO at Killroy Pest Control; Samantha Malone, president at Olympia Pest Management and executive director of the Washington State Pest Management Association; Charlee Messina from Florida Pest Control; and Nina Jenkins, founder and CTO at ConidioTec, the makers of Aprehend. In addition, Pest Management Professional Senior Editor Diane Sofranec will appear March 9 and March 23 as part of the regular series, PMP Today.

Schmidt will kick off the 2023 series by being the guest on March 6 on The Pest Posse TV Live Stream. Then each week, on Monday in March, a new Pest Posse TV episode will be released featuring one woman from this year’s recognition. These episodes can be watched as part of the free Pest Posse TV membership at
