MENOMONEE FALLS, WIS. — Copesan Services, Inc., which specializes in pest control management, has pledged $8,750 to support scholarship funds and research in pest management. The donation will be made to Pi Chi Omega and the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) Foundation.

During Copesan/Terminix’s annual conference in February in San Diego, Calif., attendees raised $4,375, which the company matched and distributed to the two organizations.

“We’re honored to be able to give back to the important research and education initiatives these organizations support thanks to the continued generosity of the many Copesan, Terminix and industry attendees,” said Aric Schroeder, vice president of national accounts for Copesan and Terminix Commercial.

Pi Chi Omega is a professional fraternity dedicated to pest management. The fraternity provides several $2,000 scholarships to entomology students across the United States each year.

The NPMA Foundation provides research, product development and refinement grands for tools and technologies used in pet management. The organization has been funding this kind of research for more than 30 years.

This donation represents the latest in a longstanding partnership between the Copesan network, Pi Chi Omega and the NPMA Foundation.
