About Us

The National Pest Management Association, a non-profit organization with more than 5,000 members, was established in 1933 to support the pest management industry’s commitment to the protection of public health, food and property, reflected both in continuing education of pest management professionals and the dissemination of timely information to homeowners and businesses. The association strives to provide timely information on pests and potential health and property threats for consumers. 

Headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, just outside of Washington, DC, the association today has a professional staff including technical, regulatory, government affairs, education, and member services.


The Iowa Pest Management Association was established in 1948.  The objectives of the organization are

1) to promote high standards of conduct and ethics in the pest management industry,

2) to foster research and diffusion of knowledge of the industry among our members, and

3) to cooperate with the National Pest Management Association and with government and education authorities for the good of the community and the industry.
