At Eden Pest, our team is serious about educating the public about residential pest control and insects. We are proud that our very own Cody Pace appeared on the popular radio show “Around the House with Handyman Bob and Eric G.” on September 26, 2015. During the show, Pace discussed the “Pestaurant” event at OMSI’s Harvest Festival and entomophagy. Entomophagy is the practice of eating insects. He explained that there are over 1,900 edible insects, which are all a good source of protein and nutrients. According to Pace, edible insects tend to be the most common types, such as ants, locusts, crickets and grasshoppers. He also explained the benefits of eating insects for humans and the environment.
Pace is passionate about educating the public regarding pests and insect biology. He often does presentations at seminars, schools and events for community professionals. One of his educational talks, for example, was to property and apartment managers who were part of a housing authority.
In 2010, Pace, along with Eden’s Stan Dawkins and Ben Danielson, became an Associate Certified Entomologist through the Entomological Society of America. At the time, the Washington and Oregon pest control experts were among the 343 certified entomologists in the U.S. There were also the only ones in the state of Washington, making them valuable resources in the Pacific Northwest.
At Eden Pest, community outreach and public education is one of our priorities. Never hesitate to get in touch with one of our experts if you have any questions about residential pest control or would like to set up a complimentary inspection.
