DPCA Information
The Delaware pest control association has its beginnings nearly 50
years ago when Dr. Dale Bray, a young professor at the University of
Delaware, contacted a few pest control companies in the state and
invited them to a meeting.  At the time their was no affiliation between
pest control companies in the state.  Each company existed as a
separate entity.  The industry had no united voice, direction or means of
working together for the good of the industry or the general public.  Out
of this meeting came the Delaware Pest Control Association.  The
companies that were there at the inception of the association are still
active.  In fact, one of the founding fathers, Joe Reardon, continues to
play an active role in the association that he helped create.

A few years ago, the Delaware Pest Control Association became one the
first state associations to begin a joint-state affiliation with the National
Pest Management Association.  This affiliation had brought many
benefits to both associations.  A few of those benefits are listed below.
