KICKER: Off the Cuff

HED: PMP Hall of Fame Class of 2014

The Pest Management Professional (PMP) Hall of Fame was established in 1997 to recognize and thank those who’ve led the pest management industry to new heights. This year, four industry icons — Ed Bradbury, Gene Harrington, Don Reierson and Dempsey R. Sapp Sr. — join the ranks of 75 other PMP Hall of Famers. Though they need no introduction, here’s the Class of 2014:

Ed Bradbury founded Viking Termite & Pest Control in 1980 with his wife, Eileen, and has since grown it into one of largest and most respected pest control companies in North America — with more than 200 employees in five states. Bradbury is six-time president of the New Jersey Pest Management Association (NJPMA) and has been instrumental in creating educational programs for Rutgers University and helped develop new regulations with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Additionally, Bradbury has served on numerous National Pest Management Association (NPMA) committees, including as a board member as Region 1 Director. He’s also served as a board member for the Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA).

In 1994, Gene Harrington responded to a job listing for a manager of government affairs position with the then-National Pest Control Association (now NPMA). Two decades later, he’s still with the association as vice president of government affairs. Using his Capitol Hill experience and knowledge of entomology, Harrington has spent his tenure with the organization affecting industry-related legislation and regulations. He’s helped develop and implement pest management public policy throughout the U.S., and played a key role in the defeat of legislation banning the use of pesticides on various federal properties in 2000. In 2009, Harrington helped create a workable measure affecting the treatment of pests on planes; it became law in 2012. Most recently, he spearheaded the passage of a 2014 law retaining the food uses for the fumigant sulfuryl fluoride.

Don Reierson veered from plans to teach high school science by taking a job as a student assistant to fellow Hall of Famer Dr. Walter Ebeling (Class of 2003). During his years in the graduate entomology program at the University of California-Los Angeles, Reierson studied mosquitoes and other insects.Now he conducts research for the industry on a part-time basis for the department of entomology, University of California-Riverside with his fellow Hall of Famer and friend of more than 30 years, Dr. Mike Rust (Class of 2007). Their research topics include urban insect pests, integrated pest management, insecticide resistance and field control strategies. Reierson has taken advantage of his academic position and years of expertise to serve as a mentor to next-generation researchers. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in zoology from UCLA and a master’s degree from California State University, Long Beach. Read the rest of this entry »
