Kness Supports Women and Brings Awareness For Breast Cancer With Pink Snap-E Traps

Kness created one-of-a-kind pink Snap-E mousetraps

Albia, IA (September 29, 2021) – Kness Pest Defense has created one-of-a-kind pink Snap-E Mousetraps in an effort to raise awareness for breast cancer and support women in the pest control industry. These unique mousetraps will be distributed first during the Women in Pest Control conference in Houston, Texas, Sept. 30-Oct. 1, 2021.

"With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, we wanted to bring attention to this important health issue that affects people all over the world and in our industry," said Dan Crew, General Manager of Kness Pest Defense. "Giving back to our community is engrained into our company culture. We are proud to support women in the industry and others in any way we can." 

Kness is a silver sponsor for the 2nd Annual Women In Pest Control Conference and will have a booth at the event. The conference features speakers, educational presentations, and exhibitors – all women. The company celebrates females in pest control and fully supports the conference's mission of highlighting women in the industry. 

The company has produced nearly 450 pink Snap-E Mousetraps to date and will give them away at the Women In Pest Control Conference, PestWorld, and other trade shows throughout October. 

Along with supporting women and breast cancer awareness, the pink traps also demonstrate that the company is capable of producing a wide range of custom-colored pest traps. This coloring process is a service that can be done as a special request of customers. Kness continues to push the envelope with its products, and a pink Snap-E trap is just one iteration of that innovative spirit that's a core principle of the company.
