I have worked for over fifteen years in the pest management industry. In that time I have specialized in the commercial food service industry and the heritage/museum industry. I prefer working in the heritage/museum environment because most of the curators and conservators are apt to develop pest management programs based on reasonable tolerance thresholds and minimal pesticide usage. My goal is to prevent damage in historic houses and collection items while seeking to discourage the needless destruction of insects.
