The Stanley Z. Baker Foundation

J.T. Eaton, a Twinsburg-based manufacturer, created the Stanley Z. Baker Philanthropic Program to honor the man behind J.T. Eaton’s success as a rodenticide and integrated pest management equipment leader.

Baker, a 1999 Pest Control Industry Hall of Fame inductee, purchased J.T. Eaton in 1949 with a $2,500 loan he took against his insurance policy. Before his death in 2005 at the age of 87, he built it up to a multi-million-dollar company, pioneering such products as Eaton’s Bait Blocks®, the first commercial paraffin-based rodent formula, in the 1960s. In 1980, Baker created Stick-Em® Glue traps and worked tirelessly in improving rodent stations. In 1999, he helped patent an ant and roach product that used just 1 percent of boric acid.

J.T. Eaton is now run by the second and third generations of the Baker family.

The program is intended to serve two purposes:

  • One is to create scholarships for college students looking to enter the professional pest management industry.
  • The other is to team with pest management professionals to help make charitable product donations and treatment.

For example, a PMP wanting to help a non-profit organization with a rodent infestation free of charge could put in a request through the Stanley Z. Baker Philanthropic Program for donated product.
