Presented by Plunkett's Pest Control-Jeremiah Riopel

Bio:  Jeremiah began his career in Pest Control with Plunkett’s in 2005.  He started out as a Multi-Housing Technician servicing apartments, condos, and townhomes in Plunkett’s Multi-Housing Division.  Jeremiah was promoted to Heat Division Supervisor in 2010, and then Regional Operations Manager of their Multi-Housing, Heat, and K9 divisions in 2012.


Prior to heat becoming available to Plunkett’s in 2008 Jeremiah performed hundreds of conventional Bed bug treatments. He has since performed thousands of heat treatments in all kinds of facilities.  To date, he has never brought Bed Bugs home from work!


Jeremiah has spoken at the Global Bed Bug Summit, Purdue University, and Temp-Air’s national Bed Bug conference.  In June of 2017 his team’s approach to Bed Bug control was published in PCT Magazine, a national pest control magazine.
