What The Heck is Positive Pest Control?

BugMaster Positive Pest Protection

At BugMaster, we take our commitment to customers seriously. It’s our Positive Pest Protection Promise. Also as part of that promise, we offer only the best treatments for pests, termites, and wildlife extraction for a fair price. And because we view our customer as our most important asset, we’ve expanded on that promise to offer even more.

We guarantee that any BugMaster technician who enters your home or business is not only good at their job, but they are also licensed. At BugMaster, we are one of—if not the only—pest control company in the state of Alabama that requires all of our technicians to be licensed by the state. Whatever particular service our technicians perform, we require that they be certified and have a license from the state of Alabama. So if they are in our pest control department, they are certified and have a pest control license. If they are in our termite department, they are certified and have a termite control license.

That requirement means that each and every one of our technicians has what they need to start their own company. In fact, it’s the same license you must have to be a pest control company owner. We know that extra effort not only gives the technician more personal value, but it also makes them more valuable to our company. Consequently, it makes our technicians more valuable to our customers. We believe it’s critical that our customers know that the technician entering their home or business is certified by the state of Alabama.

Our technicians have the highest credentials in their fields, so they understand your local pest control, termite, and nuisance wildlife needs precisely. And that’s what makes us the best pest control service in south Alabama.

For more information or questions about our products, visit bugmaster.com or call our Mobile, AL location at 251-666-4402 or our Daphne location at 251-626-6667.

40 Years of Service: The BugMaster Origin Story

BugMaster-40-pest-control-header

40 Years of Service: The Bugmaster Origin Story
By Frank Alardo (The Original BugMaster)

At BugMaster, we’ve always been dedicated to offering top quality service for pest and termite control. It’s what we know, and it’s what we’ve excelled at since the company began in 1975.

After working for another pest control company for many years, I found myself bitten by the entrepreneurial bug. I decided to go out on my own and start a company dedicated to what I know best: bugs. With just $10,000 saved up—enough to last approximately 10 months—I quit my job and set out to rid homes and businesses of unwanted pests.

It didn’t take long, however, for me to encounter my first obstacle. Building the business required going door to door—keep in mind it was 1975—and I couldn’t afford a much-needed new truck. Luckily, my father-in-law offered to let me borrow some money at 10% interest. I took him up on his offer, borrowed $2,500 to purchase a 1973 Ford, and managed to pay him back in just 90 days.

With a new truck and some fear that was overshadowed by much enthusiasm, my wife, Jan, and I set out to build the business going door to door. While the company started slowly—in our first month we collected just $128—it gradually improved. After the fifth or six month we were totaling around $1,000 a month. Over time, one thing led to another, and we just kept growing. Today, we service more than 10,000 local pest control customers, making us one of the largest locally owned pest control businesses in the region. And throughout our 40 years, we’ve exterminated it all: bedbugs, termites on wooden boats, bees in the walls, and even bugs on an airplane.

BugMaster-40-pest-control-quote

While we’ve seen many changes in our industry over the years—from the type of chemicals used for pest & termite control to gas prices—one thing has always stayed the same: our commitment to quality, professional personnel, proactive programs and innovative products.

We are proud to be the local pest control, termite, and wildlife experts that have been protecting South Alabama homes and businesses for the last 40 years. We are excited about our next 40 years and we want to be your Local Pest Control Experts.
