Get To Know the bugman

Back in 1958, when California was covered in orange groves and eucalyptus trees, our founder, Herb Olson, had a vision for a service company. Orange County was seeing a growth spurt with the completion of the 5 Freeway a few years earlier and Disneyland opening in 1955. Bedroom communities were popping up all over Orange County making room for families that moved here to work in the aerospace industry or manufacturing. Herb saw a need and opened the bugman in 1958. Ever since then, we work hard every day to make the bugman Southern California's pest and termite company of choice.

Isaiah serviced our (recently purchased) home. He was professional and friendly and did a great job.He reviewed everything with me before service, and knew exactly what the inspector (Eddie ) had planned for our home. I appreciate prompt professional help like the bugman offered . Five stars from me and I will use them again, if need be, in the future.

These guys are the best. We've used them for 24 years. When we first moved in, we had a huge ant problem. After our second service, we've only seen ants once in those 24 years. Our technician, John Sharp has been outstanding.

We are moving and needed a termite inspection. The Bugman performed the inspection, fumigation, and repairs. Tony Reeves was great to work with and made sure we knew exactly what was going to happen step by step. Nathan Harrison came out to repair our damaged wood and did an excellent job.
