Finalists Announced in 3rd Annual PPMA Photo Contest

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has announced the top ten finalists in its third annual Pest Photo Contest, a national online competition that challenged photographers to submit images of common insects, rodents and small wildlife seen around the house or yard.

To enter, photographers had to submit their favorite pest photos to the 2013 Pest Photo Contest group on Flickr. All entries were judged on criteria including originality and creativity, adherence to creative assignment and overall appeal.

Check out the ten finalists, listed in no particular order. We will be announcing the grand prize winner in November!
