In 1984, Raymond applied for an advertisement in the newspaper for a pest control apprentice job with a small company on Francis Lewis Blvd. in Queens, NY. He worked there for four years until 1988. This was the beginning of his pest control career.

In 1988, he and his wife of now 33 years, decided to relocate to Atlanta, Georgia, along with their two small children.

Through the years I have learned the value of listening and evaluating the needs and concerns of customers. It is awareness for protection. In controlling pests, I stand by the four “P’s” which are to protect people, pets, plants, and property.


My motto is:

“Quality customer care where your place is my place”


The magnetism of kindness is remembered longer than the gift of genius.

  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding,
In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths 
Prov. 3:5-6
