How It All Started
In 1986 my mother and father opened this company…
My father loved the outdoors and spent his summers playing in the Florida Everglades. In the 50s and 60s, my father would frequently dive into the local Miami Springs canals scooping out all the turtles he could find. He was so adventurous and really loved turtles.
With me on the way, dad was studying to pursue his true passion for the outdoors. He studied Pest Control Technology and Entomology at Broward College. With Doug Palmer as one of his beloved professors, he fell in love with the subject matter and immersed himself in the material. Not only did he complete his degree early, but he was at the top of his class.
Once he finished, our family went to work drumming up business, calling anyone and everyone in the white and yellow pages. With my dad in the field, mom was in the office handling the sales and scheduling. After a few years, they hired their first employee, Kerly, to help out part time. Kerly has been with us over 25 years and is loved by everyone he encounters.
What Keeps Me Motivated
In 2012, my brother Chris and I took over the family business. We recognized a need for a safe and effective alternative to toxic pesticides, so we gave the company a facelift and embraced an eco-friendly approach to pest control.
Since then, it has become my mission to change the industry standard and raise the bar for pest control professionals. To do this, I’ve created a proven process that safely eliminates pest infestations and prevents future ones from occurring, while reducing our carbon footprint. It’s important our industry takes a greener approach not only for the safety of people and animals but for the planet as a whole. My next step is to share it with the pest control community.
What I Am Most Looking Forward To
I am most looking forward to the growth of Natural Resources Pest Control. The reason being, I plan to leverage our reach to educate and encourage Floridians to go green. I want everyone to be aware of the chemicals they expose themselves to and the impact they have on our environment, which means my position will naturally evolve from an owner-operator to an educator.
Luckily, I’ve already taken the first steps by working with the Miami Shores City Council to help them limit the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers in schools, parks, and other public areas.
