How did you get started in the pest management industry?
My father Bud Snyder graduated with a degree in Entomology from Penn State in the early 1940’s.

I joined our family business after my graduation from Clemson.
Tell us your most memorable moment so far in your career in the pest management industry.
There have been so many memorable moments that it is impossible for me to choose only one. Some of the most memorable moments are my first day on the job after graduation when I realized I was starting my career; serving as President of the SC Pest Control Association; presenting my first seminar to the leaders in our industry; and in 1999 when my parents retired from the business and my brother joined me in the business, which was when the torch was officially passed from one generation to the next.
