"PermaTreat in the News for Charity Work!"

I am proud to announce that a vocational studies center in Fredericksburg was named after PermaTreat’s CEO and owner, Joe Wilson, as reported in PCT (Pest Control Technology Magazine)! Joe and his wife, Mary, were honored with the new “Wilson Center”, which is a part of the Gladys B. Oberle School. This new wing was made possible through a donation from the Wilson family, and Joe and Mary were celebrated at the ribbon cutting ceremony that unveiled the new sign for the center.

PermaTreat was also chosen by Dow AgroSciences as one of 25 companies to watch out for, as also reported in PCT! This list was created to highlight the top 25 companies that “are putting good ideas to work to achieve their business goal.” Dow AgroSciences is keen on finding new innovations and improvements, and PermaTreat is honored to have made this list.

Here is what they had to say about us:

Any Opportunity to Serve: PermaTreat Pest and Termite Control has a long history of serving the community, including its four-legged friends. It has sponsored adopt-a-pet ads around the state for years, donated two acres of land for a new animal welfare facility and sponsors the area’s long-running Dog Fair. It also supports United Way and organizes an MS walk. CEO Joe Wilson has “been involved in just about every cause you can imagine,” way more than we have room to mention here. Not only does Wilson enjoy being involved, he said it’s good for business and enhances the professional image of the industry.”

The title “Any Opportunity to Serve” is very fitting for PermaTreat. Not only are our inspectors and technicians highly trained in working out in the field to solve our customers’ pest problems safely and effectively, but our CEO has contributed a lot to Fredericksburg and the surrounding community. Just recently, on Saturday, April 20th, PermaTreat completed its 4th annual MS walk, with over 40 employees participating. PermaTreat was the top team to raise money for the fundraiser, raising over $9,000. In fact, PermaTreat is a household name in this town, and Joe Wilson is somewhat of a local celebrity.

So whether you want excellent pest control and quality service, or just want to support a regional business with a big heart, be sure to call PermaTreat for all your pest control needs!
