Alabama Pest Control Association
The Alabama Pest Control Association was formed in 1947 to unite a new industry dedicated to the safety and health of our customers. The association’s mission was to train this industry in pest control chemicals and the techniques with which they were applied.
The association was founded with the highest code of ethics, which demanded safety for both the customers and the pest operators. These standards have been upheld through the years, with advancements in training, chemicals, equipment, and safety. The techniques for application are changing regularly as newer developments and technology evolve.
Our Legislative Committee has been involved in the laws that govern this industry to continue a better relationship with the industry and the customer.
APCA hosts two conventions each year, in addition to a five-city workshop throughout the state, which includes certification points for each of the meetings to update licensed operators.
Our association has fostered an excellent relationship with all the Commissioners of Agriculture and their staff members and with Auburn University, our land-grant college, in the training and development of new techniques in the industry.
