Pertinent was created in 2020 by Dr. Bruno Jactel, former Chief Marketing Officer of Merial Animal Health and Frank Jusich, former President of Central Life Science with a vision that science and technology allied with nature could produce pest control solutions that would be as effective as traditional pesticides but safer, and as safe as “green” products but more effective.
With the help of world-class scientists and entomologists, they scientifically enhanced the natural insecticidal power of plants to create the most powerful combination of safety and efficacy. Following a rigorous product development process and independent testing, they are bringing to market the next generation of pest control products that are “tough on pests, but easy on the planet.”
