Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA)

For over 15 years, the Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA) has been successfully marketing the value of professional pest control to consumers, resulting in positive exposure for our industry and the growth of both residential and commercial markets.

In fact, 37% of homeowners reported using a pest professional in 2014 — a significant increase from the 18% of homeowners who used a pest professional in 2001. While we don't take all of the credit for such incredible growth, PPMA — through the help and generous support of its investors — is indeed advancing the industry.

We have increased awareness about the value of professional pest control services and protected our reputation among consumers through ongoing national and local media exposure, innovative advertising campaigns, social media engagement, public service announcements and more.

As times have changed, so have we, and we work hard to stay on the forefront of marketing and public relations methods as we grow, promote, protect and defend the professional pest control industry to consumers nationwide.

Our mission is to:

  • Grow the market by encouraging consumers to call a professional
  • Counteract activist efforts both in local markets and nationally; be prepared to instantly react on behalf of the industry
  • Increase awareness of the role professional pest control plays in preserving consumers' quality of life — in terms of health, property, safety and time management
