Protecting the food processing, distribution and service facilities for some of the world’s most recognizable consumer brands from threat of food-borne illnesses brought on by pests is a job Sprague Pest Solutions has proudly performed for more than 95 years.
That dedication protects not only physical structures and brands from dangerous pests, but also millions of consumers who buy, prepare and consume the food products that are produced and stored in these facilities.
As a result of its efforts, Tacoma-based Sprague has once again been named to the 2021 Pest Control Technology magazine Top 100 list (based on revenue). The list was featured in the magazine’s May issue.

This marks the fourth consecutive year Sprague has ranked in the top 25 on the list.
“We are proud and humbled to once again be named to PCT magazine’s Top 100 List,” said Ross Treleven, president of Sprague. “Our inclusion on the list and emergence as the second largest provider of commercial pest services in the United States speaks to our ongoing commitment to culture, people, innovation and exceptional client care.”
