Meet The Owner

Rick is the founder of STL Pest Control in the metro St. Louis area. In 1989 he decided to invest some of his savings to start the small pest control company. As time moved on he established a solid group of customers who would refer his services to friends and their family.

At the same time he had a full-time career in the offset printing market for over 28 years while balancing pest control and raising 3 children with my wife Nancy. As time passed it was obvious that he couldn’t have two separate careers and decided to move full-time into the pest control industry. He always enjoyed working directly with the customers on a daily basis inspecting attics, in crawl spaces or just doing regular pest and termite control. The rest is history and they are proof of it because if you work hard and love your job, the rest will fall in place.

They handpicked the best employees to establish a first class organization and now they have a full office staff as well as several full-time technicians. They service all the pest control needs of the customers from wildlife control to termites and everything in between. His father Bob was inspirational throughout the years. He would bring to the table his vast knowledge including the most importantly how to take care of the customer. He is also my full time termite technician working together side by side with Rick enjoying working with the customers. At 83 he still rolls up his sleeves when needed and operates the rotatory hammer drill. Thanks to all the hard work and long hours their team puts in, they are now a very successful company setting new standards in the industry focusing on customer service while maintaining very affordable prices.

Rick is currently serving on the board as president of the Greater St. Louis Pest Control Association. The association continues to set higher standards in controlling all types of pests while suppling continuing education to their fellow techs in the industry. They are also active in fund raising for our disable vets and other fund raisers as well.

STL Pest Control exists to be the Benchmark of Excellence for the pest control industry.
