Jeff Preece, Board-Certified Entomologist

Former President of the Board-Certified Entomologists of Mid-America

In March of 2012, Jeffery Preece, Board-Certified Entomologist (BCE), Public Health Entomology Certificate Holder, and owner of ZipZap Termite & Pest Control, was elected president of the Board-Certified Entomologists of Mid-America (BCEMA). Now referred to as CEMA, Certified Entomologist of Mid America. CEMA is a group of entomologists (experts on insects) that upholds the highest standards for urban and agricultural pest management education and development.

After completing his two-year term as president of CEMA, Preece focused his time and attention on carrying out the duties of a board member while also running ZipZap Termite & Pest Control in Kansas City, Missouri. 

Under his leadership, ZipZap Termite & Pest Control offers free training for members of the lodging and landlord industries to educate staff on the importance of bedbug identification and bedbug control. Bedbugs have become a problem in the Kansas City metro area, and ZipZap Termite & Pest Control’s bedbug division has been busy treating infested spaces.

BedBugs in Kansas City

Due to the recent resurgence of bedbugs, Preece has been working with his CEMA committee members on ways to combat these blood-sucking insects. Hotel bedbug treatments in Kansas City have increased over the past few years, and ZipZap Termite & Pest Control has been a leader in keeping these pests out of local hotels. ZipZap Termite & Pest Control also treats properties for termites, brown recluse spiders, cockroaches, ants, and silverfish. This pest management company is second to none with the expertise it provides to the people of Kansas City.

A Leading Teacher for the Industry

In addition to combatting bed bugs, Preece has been instrumental in developing a process to help pest management professionals across Missouri and Kansas be accredited as associate-certified entomologists (ACE).

He has been a leading advocate in ensuring pest companies, owners, and technicians are aware of and have access to the program. “This program will allow pest management professionals to increase their knowledge, which will benefit the consumer,” says Preece.

His other accomplishments include serving as past president of the Missouri Pest Management Association and the Pest Management Association of Greater Kansas City. Also, he is a board member of the National Pest Management Association’s Wood Destroying Insect Committee.

What Customers are Saying about ZipZap Termite & Pest Control in Kansas City
Angie's List Member Comments about ZipZap Termite & Pest Control:

The owner Jeff is a Board Certified Entomologist, that is how I found him originally. My 2 yr old daughter had been bitten overnight in her bed twice in a one week period. After the second episode, I stayed up late the next night checking her bed every 15 minutes. I thought I was looking for bed bugs. I caught a critter in her bed and stored it alive in a plastic container. I didn't know what I had and I was frantic to find out what it was.

I searched the internet and called around the next day until I found an extermination company in the KC area that had an entomologist. After speaking with Jeff, I drove to the company's location in north Kansas City and dropped off the specimen. He called me later that day to inform me that it was a flea, specifically a cat flea. Three days later, when they came out to treat my house, I was surprised to find that it was Jeff that was doing the actual extermination. He said he doesn't always do the service, but he thought I might have a lot of questions. He was right. I asked a lot of questions which he answered very patiently.

The service of treating took less time than all the questions I asked. I have two children under the age of three, so I was very concerned about the chemicals he was using, their efficacy and potential harm to children (minimal). Since I have no animals/pets, I wondered how the flea(s) had gotten into our house (likely hitched a ride, squirrels and other animals carry the cat flea).

Jeff explained the process thoroughly – how to prepare the house for treatment, ways to control flea populations, he explained the entire lifecycle of the flea and how they would eradicate it from inside the house and what he would do on the outside to minimize the chance of fleas returning. Their spray treatment kills fleas at 2 of their 4 lifecycle stages. Jeff said that because of this, we may see a brief re-emergence of the fleas at anywhere from 7 to 19 days after application, but the newly emerging fleas would be killed by the treatment for up to 30 days. It's day 22 & no re-emergence. Jeff & Zipzap did a great job for us!
