Dirk Lewis is the mosquito guy. He fell into the field while searching for a summer job in high school. A quarter century later he’s moved up the ranks, taken over the company and moved it to Rossland. He’s now putting his own spin on the company expanding it’s capabilities and markets with the addition of some innovative new technology.
