Innovative Pest Management, Inc. was founded in 1992 by its president and technical director, Richard D. Kramer, Ph. D. following his retirement as a U.S. Army entomologist. Nationally recognized as a leader in his field, Dr. Kramer is one of the top entomologists in the country and is a Board Certified Entomologist (BCE) in Urban Entomology with over 35 years experience. He has held the prestigious position of Director of Research, Education, and Technical Services for the National Pest Management Association, consulted internationally for the U.S. State Department, writes a monthly column in Pest Control Technology, and authored the most recent edition of the Technician’s Handbook—used by thousands of field technicians throughout the country. He is a past president of the Maryland Pest Control Association and currently resides on the Maryland Governor’s Pesticide Advisory Committee.

Dr. Kramer’s vision of recognizing unmet needs within our industry and his leadership in setting the standard for professional responsibility were instrumental in his decision to form Innovative Pest Management.
