Tell us your most memorable moment so far in your career in the pest management industry.
The day my son, Garrett, opened the San Diego branch of Thrasher Termite & Pest Control, was a wonderful moment. It’s an honor to have your child follow in your footsteps. Garrett is very proud to be a pest control operator and he is making his own mark in the industry as a district director of San Diego Pest Control Operators of California and as the Southern California expert on bed bugs. His book, The Bed Bug Battle Plan, is available on Amazon.
