History

For more than 75 years, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has represented the interests of its members and the structural pest control industry's commitment to the protection of public health, food and property.

Through the efforts of NPMA, the pest control industry is stronger, more professional, and more unified. The NPMA has guided its members and the pest control industry through the creation of verifiable training, the changing technologies used by the industry, and public and media relations. From its beginning in 1933, the NPMA has been a clear, consistently positive voice for the pest control industry, a voice that is respected and listened to.

The major reason for NPMA's growth and success is that its members have the opportunity to network and share ideas. At each meeting, at each workshop, at each regional conference and national meeting and trade show, members talk to each other and share ideas and expertise, learn about new tools and techniques, and discuss the latest pest issues. In sharing, they grow and prosper and are better prepared to serve their customers. The opportunities to network and learn the latest techniques in professional pest control allow our members to provide qualified and knowledgeable services to their customers.

The values that the founders in 1933 shared are still embraced today as membership of NPMA exceeds 7,000 companies from the United States and other countries.

Headquartered in Fairfax, Va., just outside of Washington, D.C., the association today has a professional staff of technical, regulatory, government affairs, education and member services committed to the pest management industry.
