Steve and Eric Stauffenger, affectionately called “The Bug Boys” by friends and clients alike have been treating pests since it was their summer job back in high school. After taking a break from pest control to get a marketing degree from Ohio State University, Steve “bug senior” quickly got back into the industry. He ran Aid Pest Control out of his spare bedroom until Eric “Bug Junior” finished his finance degree from OSU. At that point they set up an office in Eric’s basement until the growth of both the business and their families forced them to rent space on Main Street in North Canton.
As the company continued to grow, mainly due to the one factor that was always emphasized – Service, a building was purchased at 1321 S. Main Street in North Canton. Steve, pulling from his marketing degree, emphasized that the high visibility and signage would be a big plus. Eric, recalling the basic principle of finance, thought it would not only help the company service the clients but would also be a great asset that would grow in value over time.
Steve and Eric, although proud of their business and building are more proud of their employees. In addition to the two owners there are full-time and part time licensed and insured technicians. They have been with us for years. As our clients will tell you, they are not only excellent pest control operators but very courteous, likable guys. The part time office staff not only feel like family, they are family. The office is and has been staffed by mom, wife and daughter to help with billing and office work.
We are not a one or two man company that can’t get there when you need them or a huge conglomerate that has high turnover and is driven only by commissions and the bottom line. Please check out our links to find out more about us and read the testimonials from our clients about our company.
