Spokane, WA (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
As Sterling International celebrates its 30th anniversary with its RESCUE! ® employee “family”, it’s no surprise that the company is the leader in the green pest control industry.
Thirty years ago, long before “green” was trendy, the founder and president of Sterling International, Rod Schneidmiller, was tinkering in his kitchen with an all natural solution to trap flies. He got it right - and RESCUE! ® Pest Control was born.
“I come from a long line of entrepreneurs in the landscaping and growing industry. All that we’ve accomplished is a reflection and continuation of our family heritage that has shaped my values and vision for this company,” says Schneidmiller.
According to Schneidmiller, the company hasn’t veered away from the original intent forged thirty years ago: to design, manufacture and market the safest and most effective pest control solutions available. He’s pleased the company’s founding mission of ‘making pest control smarter’ is shaping the future - today.
“There’s a pervasive ‘can-do’ attitude, culture of integrity and sense of purpose that is reflected throughout the company, from R&D to shipping and customer service,” Schneidmiller explains.
Schneidmiller underscores that RESCUE!’s commitment to understanding insect behavior guides their research and development efforts and is the catalyst driving the company to continuously develop effective pest control products.
“RESCUE!’s integrated team approach -- including our talented industrial design group who are high tech wizards, and our highly trained team of insect researchers who study insect behaviors, habitats and environments -- results in products that are simple, safe, durable and effective,” he adds.
Looking ahead, Schneidmiller foresees that bio-pesticides will continue to grow in popularity as consumers realize the potential dangers that conventional pesticides pose to the environment. “Bio-pesticides are a growing trend and we’re definitely in a growth market.”
He points out that RESCUE!’ s approach uses a non-toxic mode of action to lure targeted insects into a scientifically designed trap that eliminates the need to use potentially harmful chemicals.
All RESCUE! ® traps are recognized around the world as reliable and environmentally safe insect control solutions that will not harm beneficial bugs, people, pets or plants.
When asked what he’s proudest of after thirty years in business, without hesitation, Schneidmiller says, “my people here at Sterling International.”
