My goal with this blog is to provide information and an interesting, even entertaining, perspective about the pest control industry. So, to get started, let me share a little history about how my family-owned business got started.

Dave’s Pest Control has been in business in the Worcester area since 1972 when my father, Dave Penttila, Sr. started the company with little more than a handshake and a prayer.

Today, Dave’s Pest Control is still family owned and operated. Our mission is still the same — to providing the same superior customer service and products as always, and to set the standard of superior service in the Pest Management Industry that exceeds customers’ expectations. Our residential and commercial clients enjoy prompt, personal service that only an independent operator can consistently provide.

I am very proud that many of our current regular service clients are original customers from the early years. I am thankful, too, that our customers feel confident when referring their friends and family to us.
