Many of you have enjoyed service with our family for many years, and you have played a major part in our success. Many of you have followed me from company to company over the years. Stephanie and I have had the opportunity to purchase another company that offers many more services to our customers than pest control. Contemporary Home Services, the company we purchased in April 2013, offers residential, commercial, office, and new construction cleaning. Its services include window washing, carpet cleaning, gutter cleaning, weed cutting, pressure washing, and move-out cleaning. After a few months into this new business, we realized something: We needed to have much more capital on hand than we had. We went to the bank and applied for a line of credit so we could make payroll. To this day, we still haven’t received any support from our local banks. We needed to decide how best to support our companies, and our only asset was our pest control company, Bugz-B-Gone.
We made a decision to put Bugz-B-Gone up for sale so that we could make our payrolls and purchase the necessary equipment to serve you better. This was a very difficult decision for us, because it affects so many of our friends. We know that it may be difficult for you to trust another technician and company to serve you with the care and dedication that we have provided. When interviewing other companies that might purchase our company, we had certain strict qualifications that had to be met:
1. Must be family-owned.
2. Must have experience.
3. Must be able to do all the things we do.
4. Must be able to respond quickly to your needs.
5. Must not be a national company; our customers are more than a number.
6. Must treat termites as well.
After meeting with several companies, the choice came down to one company that we felt would fit the bill perfectly. That company is Clark Pest Control of Lodi, California, which has an office in Santa Maria and will have one soon in Paso Robles. Clark has been in business since 1950, and is operated by the Clark family. They provide pest control, termite control, lawn care, and tree and shrub care. They also have the best training in the industry. We will not abandon our customers. Chris will stay on with Clark as a sales representative (he’s getting too old to crawl under houses and in attics), and our son Todd will stay on as a technician as well. Also, one of our former employees you know, Jeremy Woods, is currently working for Clark in your area. We hope that you will think of Clark as Bugz-B-Gone, and you will give them a chance to please you. We are only a phone call away to assist you through this transition period. We are providing detailed notes on your account history for an easy transition as well. We also hope our new company, Contemporary Home Services, can serve your needs.
Thank you so much for all you have done for me and for my family.
