BELMONT, Mass. — Buono Pest Control, Belmont, Mass., took its entire staff to Orlando, Fla., earlier this year to celebrate 35 years in business.

The company was founded in 1978 by Benedict J. Buono, a Vietnam veteran, who had previously worked for a national company for seven years. The early years were challenging for Buono, but he put his noise to the grindstone and focused on spending quality time at his accounts.  Eventually he earned a reputation as a standout service provider and Buono Pest Control grew as more family members joined the company. In fact, for the first 17 years Buono Pest Control was comprised only of family members.

Today, Buono Pest Control is led by President Benedict J. Buono, Jr.; General Manager Steven Buono; Manager Marillian Missiti; and Field Manager Hasan Meyers. The company offers GPC as well as termite control, nuisance wildlife control and exclusion services, and has found a niche servicing sensitive-care facilities, including research facilities, vivariums and hospitals.

“The company is successful because we pay attention to the everyday service work and the job at hand,” said Marillian Missiti, manager, Buono Pest Control. “We aren’t thinking about the next account, but solving the problems and building relationships. We remember that we are a service-orientated business.”
