Shawn Payne, owner of Lakewood Exterminating, will share tips and tricks for managing household pests, discussing how to identify everyday pests in and around your home, and addressing best practices for sealing your home to protect it from pests and wildlife.  A Lakewood resident with an extensive background in horticulture, Shawn was responsible for pest control at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland prior to taking on his business full-time.
