Buffalo Exterminating executives attend NPMA Academy in Scottsdale, AZ

Orchard Park, NY -- Buffalo Exterminating, Western New York's largest, locally-owned pest management company, announced that several company representatives recently participated in the 16th annual National Pest Management Association (NPMA) Academy held in Scottsdale, AZ and attended by over 300 industry professionals from around the world. Garry Tank, company president, Joanne Tank, chief financial officer, and Christopher Phillips, operations manager, were the only representatives from western New York to attend this year's Academy. The event is a mix of business management sessions and team building activities to help emerging leaders in the pest control industry.

"Attending the Academy is another way Buffalo Exterminating strives to stay on the cutting edge of pest management practices and technologies," explained Garry Tank. "We want our customers to have the best possible solutions available to them when they call us for service."


Mr. Phillips continued Buffalo Exterminating's four-year tradition of bringing home the gold medal as his team won the Academy Olympics.  Mr. Tank's team placed second overall.  The three-day event includes both physical competition as well as business contests related to managing and marketing a pest control company.

This year's Academy was held in conjunction with the meetings of several of the Associations' national committees.  Ms. Tank is a member of the Business Development Committee whose mission is to advance the growth and success of NPMA member businesses by serving as a resource for best practices, providing business-related tools and reference information, and providing peer and industry benchmarks for measuring performance.  The group is currently developing guidelines to assist members as they consider additional service lines and to review opportunities for member companies to diversify advertising efforts.

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 GREEN PRO certification in 2010 by adopting service standards that emphasize pest management practices which are environmentally conscious and reduce risks of pesticide exposure.

With a service fleet of over 45 vehicles, Buffalo Exterminating made over 54,000 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.
