VPMA also strives to connect homeowners and businesses with quality pest management companies and to provide timely and accurate information on pests and their potential to affect your health and property.

Find a Pest Management Professional in Your Area

VPMA can help consumers throughout Virginia find reputable, quality, pest management firms to handle every pest situation, from household pests like ants, mice and cockroaches, to outdoor nuisance pests like squirrels and snakes, to wood-destroying insects like termites and powder post beetles that can cause thousands of dollars of damage.

Find a VPMA Certified WDI Inspector in Your Area

When buying a home or property, mortgage companies or lenders typically require that an inspection be performed to determine the presence of wood destroying insects (WDI). This inspection is often referred to as a termite inspection or a WDI Inspection. In the state of Virginia, there are no regulatory licensing or training requirements needed to perform a termite inspection.

In 2000, VPMA created a voluntary certification program for wood-destroying insect inspectors in Virginia. To raise standards on these inspections done for real estate transfers, VPMA created a voluntary certification program that provides intensive classroom training. Participants must pass a written exam to become certified; and are required to attend training to re-certify every two years. To find a VPMA Certified WDI Inspector, use our searchable list of inspectors in your area.

This patch indicates that your inspector is a VPMA Certified WDI Insepctor.

Master Technician Recognition

Looking for a highly trained, experienced Pest Management Professional? The VPMA Master Technician designation is bestowed upon Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) who have completed intensive training on a series of species specific pest groups. The VPMA Master Technician series currently features seven major pest groups - Ants, Bed bugs, Termites, Occasional Invaders, Cockroaches, Rodents and Flies. Once a PMP has mastered at least four pest groups they are designated a VPMA Master Technician. Most of our Master Technican's do not stop with just four pest groups, opting to complete the in-depth, science based training for all seven pest groups. The course involves intensive pest identification using state-of-the-art microscopes, the biology of each species and current treatment protocol is covered, normally in a hands-on learning environment. If you are looking to hire a PMP that has earned their VPMA Master Technician Designation, see the list below (provided alphabetically by company).
