About me

Location Tucson, AZ, United States
Introduction I started Mr. Pack Rat with 29 years of prior pest control experience. I began my career in 1975 working for the nation's largest family-owned pest control company. I loved customer service and solving difficult pest problems, but was disappointed with the exterminating industry's over-reliance on pesticides and poisons to solve problems. I knew there was a better way. In 1997, with my wife, I started an alternative pest company, KSB Pest Prevention, focusing on prevention with minimal chemical application. The business was, by all accounts, very successful. In 2001, I sold this business to the company I previously worked for with hopes of expanding our improved methods into the much larger organization. Unfortunately, my plans turned out to be overly idealistic. After three years, I knew I had to leave and create a company where I could maintain complete control on the methods and quality of service. Thus was born—Mr. Pack Rat
