I wished to develop a trusted business that might supply customers with safe and sustainable solutions. It was essential to me that On the Fly Pest Control Solutions might help clients to deal with the source of their pest and rodent concerns, instead of the symptoms.

Tell me about a time when you have actually dealt with something difficult on the job and what you did to solve it. (If no instances, inform me about your favorite task carried out in the past or both!).
In the early phases of the business, On the Fly Wildlife Removal Solutions was employed to treat several structures along a 170-acre plot of land. The structures, which were integrated in the 1950’s, were completely plagued with rodents. The old nature of the structures made the rodents very hard to removal. The company had actually not yet employed extra pest professionals, so I treated the property on my own. The job needed long days, and some late nights away from my household. I worked diligently to perform seal up an exclusion services until every structure was successfully protected.
Business Timeline (inception, partnerships, location changes, addition of technicians, expansion etc.).
My spouse and I responded to phones and arranged consumers while I worked as the business’s only field service technician. By the end of 2016, the company had actually worked with a 2nd full-time pest control technician and another full-time office staff. The business continued to grow and broaden through the summer of 2018 when the business transitioned from a home workplace to our current head office at 5 Church Lane in Pikesville, MD
When did you get included in the industry and what is the story of how you started doing this expertly.
My daddy’s pest control service truly catapulted me into the market. He had been practicing pest extermination considering that well before national and state laws positioned regulations on pesticide application. Back then, service technicians worked with really little safety tools, gloves, or respirators. So, my preliminary apprenticeship under my daddy took place under some potentially hazardous conditions. By the time I chose to begin my own pest removal business, I had actually grown more thinking about discovering how to practice pest extermination in a more secure, more efficient method.
