Viking Termite & Pest Control, Inc.
Viking Pest Control has been QualityPro Certified since 2006.
How did you get started in the pest management industry?
I was born into it. I grew up in the pest control industry. My parents started Viking in 1980 and my brother and I are fortunate to now be part of this great company.
What is the guiding principal behind your success with your organization?
Take care of the customer. Give your employees the tools they need to succeed. Be easy to work with and for. Everything else then seems to fall into place.
Why did your company choose to earn the QualityPro certification?
Viking wants to continue to challenge ourselves to be the best we can be and measure ourselves at the highest standards our industry measures. QualityPro has really helped direct the continued professionalism for Viking and the industry as a whole.

The assistance in promoting professionalism within our organization and to our clients.
Tell us your most memorable moment so far in your career in the pest management industry.
One continuous moment that goes very quickly. A moment that I have seen great personal and professional development for me and our company. My favorite moments are the experiences shared with employees that are bettering their lives in part due to the company and of course helping our customers eliminating their pest problems.
