R. Blake Edwards, Vice President of North Fulton Pest Solutions, was recently certified as an Associate Entomologist by the Entomological Society of America Certification Corporation.

“We’re very proud of the time and effort Blake invested in this process and the knowledge he gained in order to become certified” said Joseph Edwards, President of North Fulton Pest Solutions. “It means a lot to have a nationally-recognized, certified expert as part of the company.”
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; environmental impacts related to pest control; integrated pest management (IPM); 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.
