Ed Stroehlein, A.C.E.

Modern Pest Services is proud and honored to announce that Ed Stroehlein, Service Manager at the Boston branch, has been awarded certification as Associate Certified Entomologist (A.C.E.) by the Entomological Society of America.

The A.C.E. program has become the benchmark for professionalism in the pest management industry. To gain A.C.E. certification status, Stroehlein needed a minimum of seven years of verifiable pest management experience, the knowledge and ability to pass a rigorous test on insect pest control, a current U.S. pesticide applicator’s license, and a willingness to adhere to the A.C.E. Code of Ethics.

Ed Stroehlein has worked in pest control since 2009 and has been with Modern Pest since 2012. He started out in Commercial Sales for Modern and is now a Service Manager who oversees Service Professionals in the Boston branch. He holds an associate degree, as well as industry certifications from AIB International and Purdue University. He is licensed in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont.

“Achieving A.C.E. certification was something I wanted to do for several years. The knowledge I’ve gained will help me with training fellow technicians and solving client issues,” Stroehlein said. “My next step is to work towards my B.C.E. (Board Certified Entomologist).”

The A.C.E. examination is designed to recognize practicing pest management professionals who have a solid grasp of the practical aspects of applied entomology. The exam is organized into four primary knowledge areas that include Inspection and Identification, Monitoring, Selection and Implementation of Control Methods, and Evaluation. An A.C.E. is expected to be knowledgeable on a wide array of pests that are important to structural pest management around the world.
