Celebrate 100 years with us!

2021 marks 100 years of service for Western Exterminator! Since 1921, Western has been providing innovative pest control solutions – protecting people and enhancing lives. We are incredibly proud of this achievement and want to thank all of you, our customers, for your loyalty and support along the way.

After World War I ended, a young Swedish emigrant, Carl Strom, headed west and started Western Exterminator Company with nothing but a desk, a phone, $25 in chemicals, and a vision based on quality customer service at a fair price. Today, Western Exterminator has become one of the largest pest control companies in the country and provides service in seven states. While the company has grown, Carl’s original pledge to provide excellent customer service remains.
