In 1963, founder John Sweeney identified the need for a termite and pest control firm that would focus on the specialized needs of the real estate and mortgage lending industries. The desire of the real estate and mortgage industry was to hire a termite professional that would abate termite damage. However, the traditional pest control industry seemed to be focused on treatment only. This often left structural termite damage uncorrected in many homes that were being sold. In response Sweeney combined construction expertise with his termite control practice. Repair of termite damage could now be accomplished at the same time that termite treatment is rendered. This offered a cost-effective method to manage all phases of termite correction. "We can better address the customers needs; and, by doing treatment and repair all under one roof we can reduced expense and provide value".
