We Are 45+ Years Strong!
Here at Pest Control Industries Inc., our motto is simple: protecting homes, health, and families since 1976. Our company is defined by our commitment to taking care of our people and our planet, which is why we go above and beyond to reduce our liquid pesticide use in our pest management treatments.
Who is PCT?
Pest Control Technicians, Inc. was founded by Joe Silvestrini in 1976. Joe graduated from Cabrini College in Radnor, Pennsylvania, with a Bachelor of Science in biology. He is a past president of the Pennsylvania Pest Management Association and has served as an Area Director for the National Pest Management Association. Joe founded the company on the premise that there was a better, more scientific approach to pest management than the pest control industry was providing at the time. This scientific approach turned out to be the future of the pest management industry and the secret to the success of Pest Control Technicians, Inc. PCT is recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency as a Steward of the Environment for its creative and effective programs for the reduction of liquid pesticide use.
