(New Berlin, September 21, 2011) Like any successful service company, Batzner Pest Management, and Batzner Bed Bug Services are two strong customer-oriented organizations. So strong is their commitment, each year they celebrate National Customer Service Week in honor of their employees. This year is no different. The week of October 3 will feature a series of Customer Service Week activities at their New Berlin headquarters, highlighted by their popular Madagascar Hissing Cockroach Race.

According to Jerry Batzner, president of both companies, he has collected Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches over the years and keeps them as pets and for training purposes.

The schedule of special employee events for that week will also include a western theme luncheon and a Texas Hold-Em card game, among other games and puzzles.

On the October 5 race day, at 1:30pm, Batzner employees will comprise several different teams and each team will choose their racing roach from the Batzner collection. “The roaches will speed along a customized track built especially for the race,” Batzner says. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team.

As a prelude to the Cockroach race, Batzner sponsored a Name the Cockroach Mascot coloring contest for area children. Sydney, a six-and-a half-year old girl from New Berlin won the grand prize of a gift card from Target. Her winning name for the roach was “Hissing Hank.” Four other children won prizes including a book on insects.

National Customer Service Week began in 1988 as a celebration of customer service and the people who practice it. Says Batzner, “We’re proud of our own customer service people and are happy to recognize them for their contributions to our organizations. ”

Batzner Pest Management, was established 65 years ago in September. Batzner Bed Bug Services was started a year ago and is designed exclusively to control bed bug infestations, a fast growing problem in the Milwaukee area and all over the U.S.A.

Both companies service residential and commercial customers in Green Bay, Fond du Lac, Milwaukee, Racine, Madison, Oshkosh, as well as customers in northern Illinois.
