Purdue University in October presented Dave Mueller with the 2001 John V. Osmun Alumni Professional Award in Entomology. Mueller, a Purdue graduate, is president of Insects Limited, Inc. and Fumigation Service & Supply, Inc. of Westfield, Indiana.
The John V. Osmun award was established in 1987 by Osmun’s friends, former students and peers to recognize and promote both high achievements and professionalism in entomology and its related fields. In addition, the award honors Dr. Osmun’s many years of service to entomology and Purdue University.
"I’m honored to receive this award from Purdue, but I’m specially excited about receiving it from Dr. John V. Osmun, a professor who taught me in the classroom and was my example of professionalism and integrity in the field of pest management," Mueller said.
For the past decade, Mueller and his companies have been dedicated to finding methyl bromide fumigation alternatives and to training industry members in fumigation techniques and methods.
