Who We Are
David Rice was in the pest control business for years. It was truly a family business as his two sons, Rick and Scott, were involved in the business from an early age and rode with technicians to learn the business from the bottom up. His wife Dorene helped him with paperwork nights and weekends while working a full time career of her own. Eventually, David wanted to entertain other ventures so he sold his business. A few years later his youngest son Scott decided he wanted to be in the pest control business. His brother Rick helped him build the business while enrolled full time in college. Unfortunately, Scott passed in 2001 and David and Rick took over for a few years. Dorene left her job and spent a few years in retirement until David passed away in 2009. This was the time that it became clear that they were needed in the family business and Dorene and Rick became the new co-owners. It was not the chosen path for either of them, but they love what they are doing and can not imagine doing anything else.
