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.

Got estimate and thorough inspection by Mario. He was very informative and the most detailed compared to estimates by Terminix, Orkin and Kilter. Will hire them for future jobs. I did not need to contract since my HOA covered the termite issue with their own pest company.
