Sue Fries, the Termite Lady of Ecola Services Inc. She has been the director and chair of the Pest Control Operators of California.
Thirty years ago, Susan Fries married into the glamorous business of pest management. And after 20 years in the business, she made a decision to change the direction of pest management to offer more environmentally responsible methods of extermination.
Having a child who suffers from chronic allergies to dust mites as well as attention deficit disorder, Ecola Termite Services’ Susan Fries has always been particularly conscious of not only the global environment, but her family’s immediate surroundings. Her family’s health combined with her love for animals were the real driving forces behind her decision to operate an eco-sensitive pest management company. And with growing sensitivity to factors such as global warming, pollution and a generally increasing “green” movement, Fries knew that the best thing to do would be to buy her own alternative termite treatment company. This ultimately led to ECOLA Termite & Pest Service’s “Best Green Exterminator” Award in August of 2007-2010.
