Insects Beware! Griffin Pest Solutions Has 4 ACES

Recently, four of our Griffin Pest Solutions employees successfully earned their Associated Certified Entomologist (ACE) certification from The Entomological Society of America (ESA). They include company vice president Jeff Spencer, service managers Jim Moyer and Brian Kuemin, and service technician John Dawson.

ESA is the largest organization in the world serving the professional and scientific needs of entomologists and people in related disciplines. The ACE certification program was launched in 2004 and designed to benefit the practicing pest management professional. To be eligible to take the ACE exam, candidates must have a current pesticide applicators license, a minimum of seven (7) years of verifiable pest management experience and a willingness to adhere to the ACE code of ethics.

“Having four (4) ACE’s on our staff speaks to the quality of our employees and the level of service we provide for our customers“, stated Linden Griffin, owner and president of Griffin Pest Solutions.

There are currently a total of 340 ACE’s in the United States and nine (9) in the state of Michigan.
