PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD CERTIFIED
ENTOMOLOGIST OF MID AMERICA
JEFF PREECE THE KANSAS CITY STAR
Jeffery Preece, Board Certified Entomologist, (BCE) and owner of ZipZap Termite & Pest Control was elected earlier this month to President of the Board Certified Entomologist of Mid America, (BCEMA).
BCEMA is a group of Entomologists (experts in insects) that uphold the highest standards in the education and development of urban and agriculture pest management.
Preece, has been instrumental in developing a process for Pest Management Professionals across the state of Missouri to gain their accreditation as Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) and has been a leading advocate in making sure those pest companies, owners and technicians are aware of the program. “This program will provide opportunity for pest management professionals to increase their knowledge, which will benefit the consumer,” says Preece.
Jeffery Preece, BCE is past president of the Missouri Pest Management Association, past president of the Pest Management Association of Greater Kansas City, and a board member of National Pest Management Association, Wood Destroying Insect Committee.
Due to the recent resurgence to bed bugs, Preece has recently been in talks with his new committee members of BCEMA on ways to combat this blood sucking insect.
Preece has finished his two year term as the president of BCEMA and is spending his time as a board member and running ZipZap Termite & Pest Control, located in Kansas City, Mo. Preece runs the company as the technical director and acts as the Board Certified Entomologist and is instrumental in the development of their bed bug heat company that heats large and small spaces. ZipZap Termite & Pest Control puts on free training classes for the lodging and landlord industries to educate staff on the importance of bed bug identification and bed bug control. Bed bugs have become a big issue in the Kansas City Metro area and ZipZap’s bed bug division has been very busy heating spaces in Kansas City that have bed bugs.
Hotel bed bug treatments in the Kansas City area have increased over the last few years and ZipZap, an exterminating company in Kansas City, has been instrumental in keeping bed bugs out of Kansas City hotels. ZipZap is also a pest control company in Kansas City that treats for termites, brown recluse spiders, cockroaches, ants and silverfish. Their pest management company in Kansas City is second to none in the level of expertise they bring to the Kansas City area.
