Orchard Park, NY - Buffalo Exterminating, Western New York's largest, locally-owned pest management company, announced that Marc Potzler, the company's Technical Training Director, recently earned certification as an Associated Certified Entomologist (ACE).

The national certification, awarded by the Entomological Society of America, signifies that Mr. Potzler possesses a minimum of seven years of practical experience in pest management, the knowledge and ability to pass a rigorous examination on insect pest control, and a willingness to adhere to the ACE Code of Ethics. He is the first pest management professional in Western New York to achieve the ACE designation as a nationally recognized expert in the field, and one of only a few technicians in the state to earn certification.

"Buffalo Exterminating is very proud of the work Marc did and the knowledge he gained in achieving ACE certification," said John Zimmerman, General Manager.  "His accomplishments demonstrate the dedication of our team to the core values of the company as we continually strive to provide customers with superior pest management services."

The ACE examination includes questions about basic entomology, insect identification, life cycles and control measures, health impacts of pests, ecological principles pertaining to pest control, and integrated pest management (IPM). ACE candidates are also tested on pesticide safety and health issues, pesticide technology and resources, organizations and associations of significance to the pest control industry, and laws and regulations affecting the industry.

Founded in 1954, Buffalo Exterminating is the area's most experienced, locally-owned pest management company, specializing in the elimination of and protection against pests such as ants, bees, wasps, hornets, rodents and bats.

The company earned national Quality Pro certification which assures customers of the highest levels of service, trained technicians, environmental stewardship and professional behavior. Buffalo Exterminating is the first area company, and one of just over 400 nationwide, to earn Quality Pro certification.


With a service fleet of over 45 vehicles, Buffalo Exterminating made over 55,000 commercial and residential service calls last year throughout Erie, Niagara and other nearby counties. Its affiliate, Rochester Exterminating, serves residential and commercial customers in Monroe and surrounding counties.
