Pest Control announced the members of its 2006 Hall of Fame class, which will be inducted into the prestigious group as part of NPMA's PestWorld show on Oct. 24 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center.

This year's class includes:

  • Gary Bennett
  • Jim Steckel
  • Bill Spitz
  • Truly Nolen Sr.

"It's an honor and a privilege to induct yet another class of such dedicated pest management luminaries," said Pest Control Editorial Director Frank H. Andorka Jr. "We're looking forward to celebrating their induction with their families and friends deep in the heart of Texas."

Each year, Pest Control ask an anonymous committee to chose three Hall of Fame inductees, with an additional posthumous candidate chosen by the magazine's editorial staff. Each nominee must receive 10 votes from industry peers to be considered for the Hall of Fame.
