How did you get started in the pest management industry?
My brother, Mark, and I started a landscaping business together in 1989 and then moved into pest control in 2008. The transition from landscaping, to lawn care and then the addition of pest control was a natural progression for us as we looked for new avenues to grow the business.
Tell us your most memorable moment so far in your career in the pest management industry.
Helping an elderly client discover a potential gas leak while performing a termite inspection. We did not find any termites but might have saved a potential disaster. It’s all about helping people solve problems they don’t even know they have.
