How did you get started in the pest management industry?
I grew up in a family owned pest control company called Atomic Pest Control, started in 1958 by my uncle Les Tubbs, it was located in Memphis, TN. My dad Earl Tubbs joined the company in 1960. I would spend weekends and summers working at the company. In 1979 as a college student I started working there full time.
