Success Starts From The Ground Up

Since Betty and Lou Trad first opened our doors in 1971, we have been committed to developing long-term relationships with all of our team members. That’s why we are proud of the positive, family-oriented attitude shared among all of our employees. We take pride in our work because there is so much more to what we do than simply solving pest problems.

“Trad's is one of those rare "one of a kind" places. We believe in showing integrity through our actions. I love coming to work with people who care and are passionate about what they do. Trad's wants the best for not only our customers but also our employees, and it is shown in multiple ways. I have been here almost 10 years, and although it is hard work, I would not take a single day back. I have grown both personally and professionally under the guidance of some of the best managers and mentors anyone could ask for.”
