Presented by NPMA's Leadership Development Group, the NPMA Gives Award recognizes NPMA member companies that have demonstrated leadership through their dedication and contribution to the good of the community. As part of its mission, the Leadership Development Group is committed to honoring those companies that have made a real contribution to their community.

Such contributions are demonstrated through carrying out and/or participating in community service projects. These projects may be industry related (complimentary pest control for at risk environments, etc.), or non-industry related (walk/run, raising funds for the community, blood drives). The entry must demonstrate the company's consistency over a minimum of a three-year period.

The winning company will be featured in the September/October issue of PestWorld magazine and recognized at Academy 2019 in Phoenix, AZ. Click here to view judging criteria and to submit your application.

A sustainable solution to snakes!
Apply Snake Out® Snake Repellent into attics, crawlspaces, voids, and holes and cracks in around the structure and foundation where snakes may enter. Snake Out irritates the snake’s Jacobson’s Organ, which senses chemicals picked up by the tongue, so snakes are repelled and move away during normal foraging.
