The Kness Family: Authentic Perseverance

Albia, IA (April 3, 2024) – Built on a legacy of providing high-quality pest control solutions, Kness Pest Defense has manufactured innovative products for 100 years and counting. Strategically located in the Midwest, our team of experienced industry professionals believes in supplying innovative, reliable, and easy-to-use pest control products of the highest quality.

After surviving the Great Depression, even hardship was not a scarcity for the Kness family. Our founder’s sons returned to Iowa after they served during World War II. They began working with their father at Kness Manufacturing Company. The family also had to take on other jobs postwar to help finance the company and to continue their legacy.

Hard work paid off. 100 years later, their namesake is backed by a diverse lineup of pest control products. In a world full of knock-offs, one thing can’t be substituted: Perseverance.
