Spring is bringing us a powerful nor'easter over the next two days, but that doesn't mean pests are taking a break. Many pests such as ants and mice make their way indoors to share your warm home when it snows. #ants #noreaster2018 #snowstorm2018 #firstdayofspring

Teammate Spotlight: Rick Cooper, Technicnal Director of Cooper Pest Solutions 
Technical Director of Cooper Pest Solutions, Rick Cooper, is both a member of the Cooper family and a revolutionary scholar in the field of entomology. Rick got his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware and then moved onto completing his Master’s degree at Rutgers University. After obtaining his Master’s degree and completing his specialized research of German cockroaches, Rick took a break from academia.

Working in the family business was not initially the goal he aspired towards when first building his career. “I didn’t think I was going to come into the business because I thought I would stay in a university setting. My father had built a very progressive company and then my brother picked up the reins, so I decided it was something I wanted to be part of. All along, my lifelong dream was to be able to go back and get my PhD. When that opportunity arose, I had to take it right away because I never thought I would get the chance to go back. I walked away from the academic world once before after my Master’s degree, and I knew I couldn’t do it again.” Rick’s work as a PhD student on bed bug research launched him into prominence as a world-renounced bed bug specialist and Doctor of Entomology.

In addition to personally training Cooper technicians, Rick also speaks at pest conferences across the county, works as an expert witness work for legal lawsuits and claims with bed bugs, and holds an appointment at Rutgers University in the entomology department as member of the adjunct faculty where he continues his research.

When asked what his advice would be to young aspiring entomologists, Rick said “Try and remain as broad as possible as a biologist. Study as many things as possible in biology. You can always specialize later during post graduate study, that’s the best time to focus in more and more in the specific field of entomology.” Fun Fact: If Rick could be any insect he would be “a dragonfly. No question about it. They’re my favorite insect in the word. They have very cool biology and they’re just really neat.” #entomologist #bedbugs #pestcontrol #njisntboring #nj
