Winners Selected by PMPs in theFirstStrike Success Story Challenge

Incredible FirstStrike Success Stories were received from all over the United States. Thank you to everyone who took the time to write about the success that you’ve had with FirstStrike, a new concept in rodenticides. FirstStrike is setting a whole new level of rodenticide performance and thousands of PMPs are using FirstStrike on their most challenging problems and on their regular accounts.

We asked the PMPs to vote on their favorite FirstStrike story. They had hard decisions to make because all 8 finalists had great stories to share. Congratulations to William Shoemaker, the general manager of Boulder, Colo.-based Critter Control of Denver, who won first place – a 52-inch Sony® BRAVIA® HD flat-screen television, BRAVIA home theater system and Sony Blu-ray Disc® player – a package valued at $2,500. His story described a large Norway rat infestation at a recycling center, a client that had tried other rodenticide options without success and where application of FirstStrike brought immediate results.

Supervisor Teresa Brust of Clark Pest Control in Valencia, Calif., took second place with her story of an aggressive mouse infestation where previously used control solutions were no longer effective. She won a 40-inch Sony BRAVIA HD flat-screen TV valued at $1,500.

And third place was earned by Scott Mishler, a supervisor with Alpha Ecological based in Tucson, Ariz. His story addressed FirstStrike's ability to withstand desert heat versus conventional rodenticides. He won a $750 gift certificate for tickets on United Airlines®.

The remaining 5 finalists also received prizes: a $50 gift card and a variety of FirstStrike merchandise. These winners are:
